Default 45 degree Motherboard, Flipmode PC

Flipmode looks very simplistic at first glance, but the Devil is in the Details. Flipmode implements some ideas that I think case manufacturers should see. It gets my vote for "MOD OF THE YEAR"

Very innovative design there. Nice to see something new.

Innovative though can't see this being a good design for air cooled because heat sinks are typically designed to sit flat or at 90 degrees. Also a graphics card with a heavier heat sink could put added strain on the pci-e port or motherboard due to the angle in which it's weight is now being distributed.

Great idea for water cooling as shown though as it's a lot lighter and flows in whatever direction the pump directs the flow.

Very clean and sleek one-of build. Though a non-enclosed system would've made it stand out that much more - frame only. I am all for the edgy square-head design, and had the boxed enclosure not been used the angled/sloped design could have stood out more.

Pascal is a great modder. A real great person to talk to. I remember seeing his sketches before he even cut his first piece.
