Aesthetics aside, I much, much, much prefer the PSU cables sleeved in lace. Of course, aesthetics are a none issue for me, as my case doesn't have a window.

Cool! I hope to get more time to focus on it this week.



I've modified the original concept case to reflect the theme of this Prawn weapon from the movie. The case will have reinforced panels and Orange/Black/White color scheme. One of the easiest steps to fit this theme was replacing the OEM handle on the Cooler Master 840 motherboard tray with machined aluminum handle. I had one spare handle left over from our previous stock. The new version has been revised with rounded finger grips, as shown here, Computer Case Handles







I'm using 1/4" drill bit

Thanks for the post vintank! CM is planning to show their new V-series cooler, they wouldn't reveal the model to me. I may rig a Cat Food can as cpu cooler, just for joke when they open the case....lol

Cooler Master only sent 1 hard drive, so no sense in keeping the HD bay!

Use 1/8" drill bit to remove HD bay
