lol not so well is an understatement.
I played hockey last night and got my clock cleaned in an open ice hit... was watching my pass.... so the result I think is a cracked or severly bruised ribs and maybe a bit of a concussion....

So, no work got done last night, just a lot of laying down and groaning lol.

I might get to it today at some point, maybe tomorrow. but there will be a final "pre-glamour shots" update.

I must say, it looks very slick.

It doesn't matter what's underneath the hood in that baby, cuz after you see the case it's all you can think about it could be a pre-pentium and I wouldn't not care

Emailed again about the dimensions for the mockup. The guy needed a bit more info, if you could supply it that would be awesome

Did you ever get around to finishing this?

Cause I just got one too and I'm finding the cooling to be a bit lacking. My Crossfire HD4850s and NB/SB chipsets run a lot hotter than they did in my Antec 900.

IMO the 180mm fans don't really move much air, though they are silent, but I wish they had the option to spin faster. Did you keep the top 180mm as intake or did you flip it to exhaust?

I did, but now unfortunately I have to sell it...

you need to remove the top HDDbay to get good airflow to the GPU... and I have the Top fan working as an intake rather then an exhaust

and disregard my pm, didnt see this reply :S

Well it can't keep my HD4850s cool in Crossfire. And I did remove the top HDD cage to allow for airflow.

I got a dual-slot cooler coming for my 2nd HD4850 though which I'm hoping sorts things out. I don't think positive air pressure works too well with a GPU that dumps hot air into the case.

Just running my other HD4850 which has the ICEQ4 (dual-slot) keeps my temperatures the same as my Antec 900 but with my 900 I had a side fan as well which kept my single-slot HD4850 cool.
