Default Good quality

The construction is very good! But---why? At least its original

Maybe you could squeeze another tower in there to fill it out a bit.

I wanted to put water cooling in there but i am still trying to convince my wife water cooling and electricity go together.
As to the why.......I think i am just plain insane lol.I had never seen one like it and i just wanted to see if i could do it.I have other ideas but thats all they are.I work in a machine shop with cnc equipment i a have ideas to make a case from 1/2 aluminum which i can get from work but cnc time is $100/hr unless i can do it in my lunch time( only if the machine is not in use) i have the cnc prog at home so i can do the drawings and prog here but a lot of the ideas i have could take more than 1/2 hour lol and i would not have an old case inside it would be all machined into the aluminum.Like i said just ideas.

Default Ah right

yes put watercooling in...that would be really cool!

Personally i think its great to "build outside the box"

A Parthenon though-man thats funny.

Be great if you could machine something from aluminum. Could go for some kind of crazy 30's retro "aerodynamic" case.
