Yup google sketchup :D
Thanks guys!

Quick Update...
1-9-09


Arite guys, so I guess what happened was the case i wanted was not in stock at the place I ordered it, and they had refunded me in Paypal... and I wasn't aware of that until a few days ago...
I tried another place, but the same problem... out of stock and cannot be ordered... : /

I've looked around, and I just can't seem to find any other places with the case in stock. So it looks like that I MAY just have to find a different case to get two of...
However, the case's need to be cheap, looking at like $40 each...
But yea, we'll see...

Also got a couple other things for ya'll to see... but that'll have to wait. ;)

Got to go down and pick up the stuff at there shop, Alex was out for dinner, but I got to meet Quoc. Really nice guy, and cool shop!
Hope to meet Alex in person too some time down the road. :)
Heres what they got me:


2x EK150 Res
20ft Masterkleer

It's been busy lately, but we've made a bit of progress.... got a package the other day. :D


The ONLY difference between this case and the case I already have is that the front plastic part is different... we can deal with this methinks. :)




Gutted down a bit, without the side panels and front.


Another angle...


Sat the cases together just to check it out....


I'm liking this... hehehe...


I've decided to ditch that Mest idea to cover the original PSU hole, will be doing something else instead....


Got another 120.3 rad grill, going to cut the top of the second case like you see i have done on the left case.


Hehe.....


So how to make these two case fronts work together.... that is the question.... :hmm:

More updates soon!

Seen a few of these in the past, and I must say when done correctly they do look pretty nice, and with the amount of planning your doing looks like things will turn out well! I'm very interested in seeing how she turns out!
