—(••÷[WHERE TO BEGIN]÷••)—
My old rig went kaput about the time we had a friend move in.
The memory was no longer able to be recognized on the board due to warping, so I pulled my drives and shelved it.

Since I have a friend staying, I have had quite a bit of time to plan the replacement.
This time, I hope to make a more feminine piece.
Looking a more like a jewelry box than a computer.

—(••÷[THE NAME]÷••)—
When I was a kid and watched "Jem and the Holograms" Synergy was feminine and high tech, something usually not geared toward girls. I liked the idea as a rig adding fashion to case design.

I am hoping to use this for gaming, as well as media streaming and general use. Getting high resolution in a game like Skyrim, and run Media Centers, like XBMC with little issue.

—(••÷[MY EXPERIENCE]÷••)—
I have built 3 cases, but nothing as involved as this. I still consider myself intermediate.

—(••÷[QUESTIONS & ISSUES]÷••)—
• Could I run a water cooling system inside this case?
Most mods of this case seem to require more modification than I have at my disposal.
• Is my Graphics Card Size and issue?
When I measured, it didn't seem to be, but that is not considering what else may be in there too.
