As far as the cost goes, it's just above the $500 range and still going because as we all know with this hobby there's really no end to it.

I made it because I wanted a case that I can change the look or function of whenever it needed or suits me.

You can buy the angle for the frame for about $125 at Home Depot, seems high but I used Architectural aluminum as apposed to cheaper structural because it's inside radius is so small it's not worth mentioning.





This Photo give you a good idea of how the frame was connected.

You might have seen it in the forums section at ncix.com where i put in a few pictures.

Or you could have seen it at XtremeSystems Forums, that's where I have a complete buildlog that I keep updated whenever I add or change something about the case or hardware.

If it's OK to post links to other forums I could give the link here, I can't find the forum rules here that pertain to posting other links.

Is it OK?

Nice case ...very nice work ...did you follow mountain mods blueprints or was it completely self designed....very Impressive

I am especially impressed by that Sata power cable that looks like it took some serious tender love and care.

Thanks cwestwell,

I couldn't decide between Silverstone's Tj-07 and that Mountain Mods UFO, so I designed this case so I could combine the best aspects of both cases.

Those Sata power cables took a lot longer to make than I thought, but I'm satisfied now that their done.

Here's the link to my buildlog for the case.
