Double Dragon Case Mod-reverse double ATX)

UPDATED 8/4/15
Hey all,

Sorry about the time lapse. Time to revive this build log.

Now that school is done and found a comfortable steady income, time to start collecting materials to begin working on the case. Bear with me as it might take a while to get everything constructed. I'll be fitting in work in between diaper changes of our new baby due next month.

So.... this will be a build that will take a long time to complete(just warning everyone now) :o Just wanted to get some input while in the planning stages of the build.

Waterfall Custom Reservoir - leaning toward single loop at the moment, but this would be a double loop concept I did.

Kang approved.

Love how you used the heakiller CPU block in the design as well... :)

I like it with some white, brightens it up a bit. :)

Nice layout.

Looks badass! Reminds me of when I used to live in a trailer. Double wide is better then single wide!

I voted Red,white and black. I love that color combo.
