Yeah really, I'd like one too. Voodoo must have old stock lying around since HP bought them out. Should see if they'd be up to selling it off on HWC.

Thats the one I have, the old omen cases, they are damn good. Even come with a removable motherboard tray, Voodoo actually have Lian Li make custom cases for them, like the v2000 but 50% modified.

HP did buy them out, but Voodoo office in Calgary still makes those Omens. Its like HP just bought Voodoo for the name, I personally work for the HP Blackbird side, we build those blackbirds. But we often see those old Omens lying around. The new Omen that is coming out, we are lucky 2 guys from our dept are going to be building the first units, and also making the manuals for it, so basically once we all know it nice and good, we will build both Blackbird and Omen..

The only think I am stuck about is, Lian Li have some special screws for one or 2 of their things, like hard drives and stuff, and voodoo have special ways to mount stuff like radiator in the chassis, apparently they aren't allowed to give any screws out, but since I bought a case from them, I am going to speak to the manager to lend me some atleast, I can't finish my rig until I don't get screws.

Wow, didn't know they were made here in Canada. Sounds like a dream job...building high-end rigs everyday.

I think you could probably find those screws on various websites, unless they are special to Voodoo.

Sure is, but not until I build those Omens myself one day.. That will be a dream.

Not sure of the radiator, I think the use the same screws as used in the Rad boxes, those long ones.. As for the hard drive, they are just normal lian li screws, they gave me screws for 4 hdd's, but I need 4 more, for 6 hdd's..

Sure, Omen only for water cooling, if you go for air, ur nuts lol. Blackbird used some custom water cooling made, we do build air cooled units, but that is like 5% of all the units. Right now we are building 350+ units to send to Bestbuy USA to sell, those only have cpu liquid cooled, but customer units most of them have them as fully liquid (that is cpu and video card).. damn we all hate doing those fully liquid, they can upto 2 hrs to do, its frustrating, but when its done it looks damn good, and we feel good lol ..

picture is awful, i dunno if it is the black interior or my horrible lighting, but i can't take a good picture of this thing for the life of me. Also I gave up on wire management. This power supply cables are just too short.

I'm using the Black/UV Blue feser as well. The Dye, which i added to distilled water. I had to put quite a bit in to make it that dark. Your build looks very nice!

Hrm, I used the bottle. I would take note to get the dye next time I suppose.
