Default first mod parthenon

I had a dream one day to build this insane box for my pc.
The roof is MDF. The bottom is 3/4 plywood, and the pillars are 3/4 oak dowels with milled grooves.
Custom machined on/off switches.
aerocool gatewatch fan speed controller
Air vent in roof to let out excess heat.
i used the chassis from a scrap pc so that i didn't have to custom make the whole inside, I just painted it to match the outside paint color.
It took me roughly 6 months of overtime/lunch breaks and coffee breaks to finish( would of been a lot less time if I could of just worked straight but I don't have the tools at home.
Inside:
AMD X2 4600 EE cpu
Asus M2N32-SLI Deluxe mobo
2 x 1gb pc 6400 DDR2 OCZ special opz
250gb Maxtor HDD
Sapphire 1950pro 256mb video card
Enermax Noisetaker 485w psu
4 x delta 120mm case fans 70cfm 32db
