Out of the box and onto the table..

Gonna be doing some flame work with the same blue and adding red over the black side panels. Waiting on the new power supply should be here next week, and will do a change over to uv blue.

All sleeving will be uv blue.

Lot of work ahead but I think progress thus far is really good.

Did a little wiring and some other stuff today. Got the chamber worked out, and all the metal fab is done and painted.

I used the rubberized stuff that you would undercoat a vehicle with to help with vibrations.

Made this for supporting the top chamber panel. All will be riveted in.

Ok so I am pretty much finished with everything except the bay replacement mesh. It will be here this week, everything else is assembled.

I flipped the top 220 as it just makes more sense to me for the air flow to be in one direction. The front 120s pull in, the back and the top out.

This isn't the quietest case I have ever owned but the air flow is amazing. The chamber worked out great as well, and the hdds and psu stay really cool down there.
