My System Specs

Default Case building Materials

Hey all,
I'm the new guy to this site. Figured I better start somewhere so here I am.

I have made a hobby out of PC case building and customizing. The one thing I enjoy the most is there is no end to the possibilities, especially with the materials you can use. Wood, Metal, composites. Theres near an endless selection.

I myself have built a number of wooden cases and customized a number of started metal ones. My next project I am going to experiment with MDF board and see how that turns out.

If anyones interested I'll post my last build and the design I'm doing for my current build.

I would like to see if anyone here has built or customized a case with some really odd materials?

First off Welcome to the forums!

Second I love to see some build logs, by all means post them up ASAP.

BTW Hardware Canucks Forum has a great Image hosting service top left of the homepage. If you need it.
