Looks amazing, nice work! You can barely see the computer parts in it hahah. I don't think I want to know how much this would cost if you weren't sponsored

Yeah, the HW is quite hidden down there in the depth of darkness. But in this build, the HW isn't what's supposed to show, it's the whole thing. I'm yet to mount the PSU, do the cablemanagement and to fit some white leds under the motherboard.

I'm also thinking about setting up some mesh plates over the MB and to do an plexi/acrylic adapter in the front to fit 3 sets of 2.5" disks or SSDs. Depending on what I can get hold of.

I started up the build this weekend and burned 3 1TB disks and an SSD.

The sponsorship have saved me like 600-700$ Now I'm trying to get hold of some SSDs, but I'm not sure what to get. I need to have the best, and by that I mean the best looking. :-P And if performance is good to then that's a +.

Some updates for you all! I've powder-coated it white and I really like the finish it gave it. This will also change the appearance of the build in all aspects, don't you think?









I'm sorry that I've not been around, but things have gone slow and I just powdercoated this thing last night. Anyways, I hope you like it!

Nice update! That looks extremely good! Is there going to be an led in the front button hole? Think that would make it a bit cooler. Also, any other mods planned?

Thanks bro! I'm putting the original button back, or at least that is the current plan. I'll see if I can manage to do something creative with it tho. It would be cooler.

I got some plans, or stuff to do. I'm currently waiting for some money, as I'm broke ..Again. But some acryl is getting bought. I'm doing an SSD/2.5" HDD thingy in the front, for the drives, that I do not yet have (I burned my SSD! :'(. ) Anyways, this will be done as soon as I can afford the acrylplates, I'm also doing a custom roof, or top? Whatever you may call it. This will also be made in acryl or plexi. So you can look at the hardware, without the risk of having a smal cat, your nephew or anyone else putting their dirty little pawns on your hardware. :-P

I have done something quite cool with plexi already. Under the motherboard, I've mounted plexi, and then put 4 white leds in it, so it's like.. a square form, about the size as the motherboard that's iluminates the whole thing really nice. I don't have any good pictures of it, but I guess I can give you a bad one. It's from before I powdercoated the case white.



So, enjoy that somewhat embarrassing picture.

But hey, give me some response on my plans, and I would like some more response on how you all think my paintjob turned out. :-) I'm going to do something creative with orange paint also on the case to, so stay tuned. ;-)
