I leave you alone for 2 weeks and you impress the fook outta me. Good job man. Keep it up, also, just a small, small suggestion....

If you do the PSU in wood colors, at least attempt it on a crappy 200W'r or something first smile.gif Don't wanna ruin a perfectly good corsair one know do we?

Go for it! Oak is expensive though, I spent $40 on a .75" 8' board, that's 9.5" wide. It looks great though!

I've considered doing this as well, and depending on how this turns out I just might!

Can't wait to see the end result, keep up the good work sir!

You've inspired me Sir!

If I decide to do an mATX build it will be done with wood.

I can't wait to see the finished product. I love the look of wood.

I'm pretty irritated, as I'm probably not going to be able to get the top piece done until tomorrow >.< We had a sub for the woods teacher who usually helps me, and that sub wasn't certified for Tech Ed mad.gif

BUT! I am getting some laser engraving done by the end of this week on the top panel biggrin.gif

Since I couldn't do anything today, I worked on the Sketchup model. Decided to go with dual 140mm up front.

First, I started with the rad assembly-

Then add it to the front panel-

Then add the front panel to the assembly and voila!



That's all for now, I guess I'll see what I can do for updates tomorrow if nothing goes wrong :/ Thanks!

Oh, and I'll still have dual 140's up front if I don't go with liquid cooling thumb.gif
