Ok it took me 2 days to build this. Its not the most precise computer box. But it looks so cool !!! I just wanted to make something that showed of my fan. But im not done yet i still have to cover over the Hard drive. Anyways it lowered the cpu temps of about 5-6c. Let me know what you think about it !!!

It's pretty freakin' sweet looking! You should definately do some lighting eye candy with that thing.

I agree though, you should do something to cover the fan.

well the plexiglass if could get someone with a table saw would be better...but its not hard to cut you just got to make sure you dont over heat the blade of the jigg saw or else the plexiglass start to melt and then the blade sticks to the plexiglass... And the price is not to bad i think it was like 20$ canadian for 18" by 36 " ...the screws cost a bit to but there always good for the next project if you dont like what you made !!

Id say get a new, better looking PSU (Ultra X-connect, Aspire, ect.) With rounded cables, and id use a heatshrink on those IDE Cables.. or You could use heatshrinks on all your ugly cables.. lol =D

Also, id go for some UV Reative stuff with Cold Cathods, that would look SO awsome. =D keep up the great work!

Not only does this look cool, but from a functional standpoint, this would be an awesome setup to test rigs on. The open design would make testing boards and setting up rigs just so easy! Again, nice work man.

First off, that looks awesome. Reminds me of a benchtesting case


Now, what I would do, would be sand the edges with fine grit sandpaper, and add l.e.d'sto the back so that it shines through the plastic at the edges, know what i mean?
