Default Loose it or Use it

I thought id try my hand at etching the side panel of my case.

The picture doesn't do it any justice as you can't realy make out the details and the depth of the carving.

I still have to paint it with the UV paint i have comming in...that should help it stand out i think as it will match the UV loop.

What do you think...Loose it or Use it ?

Thanks :)

I layed it out with a black marker and used a dremel tool to do the etching...its really more of a carving....picture doesn't show any of the depth or details...about 6 hrs in total

Was it simple to setup for gaming?, is it like WS in BF where you have to edit the exe.

Very, very nice setup:cool:
