    Ohhh, Subscribed!!! U2-ufo is a sweet case! I was thinking of getting one myself. It's nice big, and works quite well.. But, I just went with the Pinnacle 24 case. Will be here Friday! Woot.

    From what you have listed, it does look quite good to do. The only hard thing to look for is the dang Heatkiller cooler..

    Looks like it's going to be a sweet build. Keep us posted.

    I know what you mean about money. I had to put my build to the side for a couple weeks so I could build my wife a new rig for Mothers day and also forked out a ton for my sons birthday this weekend.

    U2-UFO is 18x18x18
    U2-UFO Extended is 18x24x18

    deeper will be more better for me as i love my cable management, my loops, pushing/pulling my rads :roll:, the height and width are fine

    I love the case! You'll love it too man! really will!

    damn, 21%... Sorry to hear about that man!!!

    as for the two colors.. I can't wait to see it.. I feel it's a hit and miss on that sort of thing.. But, I have seen quite a few in the past few months that have made it look SWEET!

    Can't wait to see more!

    I love big sized cases (a few projects going on, here on TPU, at the moment, CS;)) and MM sure know what they are doing... this should be a fun project for you! Hope you have no problems , as money dont grow on trees :)()...

    as for the colour scheme... well, as a painter, I would avoid contrasting red and green as it is really hard to get the right balance out of it... but, UV lights might produce a superb result.

    I'll follow this through, for sure! :toast:

    Can't wait to see the red and green man! that I can't!!!

    It should look good on how you do it man. Just gotta get the right tools, and thought! I'd also do one half green leds, and one half red. Throw the vive of the whole AMD/ATI wave link!
