    Yea, i still need one there.

    It's just a pity it can't accomodate a 140mm :(

    Been thinking about using it as a space for a Rad/Res (Like the Swiftech ones)...

    Ok, thought update.

    After seeing a UV lit build in another thread, i'm inspired to do this as a UV thing. So, i'm looking to get 6 x 120mm UV fans (Maybe AC Ryan), some UV Cables and some UV touch-up paint. I'm still going to use Clear acrylic for the windows though.

    So at the front it looks like, 1x SATA DVD/RW drive, 1x Power/Reset/Hard-Drive and 1x Zalman 6 fan controller.

    Now, i'd like to lay down my thoughts for this build, starting from the front. I'm going to be adding 2x 120mm fans to the front and covering them white mesh on the door. I'll then have the whole top see though (so you can see the DVD spinning and the Powersupply - Modular). The bottom will be 3x 120mm fans with mesh underneath and anti-dust sponge. The back will have 1x 120mm and maybe 3x40mm next to the PCI slots.

    Inside, i'll be using white braiding and UV SATA cables. Hardware wise, i'm undecided. But i will be adding a acrylic sheet to the back of the Graphics card for looks :D. I may even go crossfire as this is for looks, lol. Also, im wanting a DFI or Asus board as they are UV reactant, and just look the best IMO.

    I'm undecided on the CPU cooler... So, opinions on that would be great.

    The inside of the case will be sprayed black. And i may be cutting out some of the 'door behind the mobo tray' (lol) for little windows.

    Don't hold me to this, but i'm going to try and get alot more done this week. I'm in the mood now!

    You could cover up those factory holes on the bottom with acoustic foam, black styroboard, smoked plexi, or cut another piece of sheet metal even.

    Just some ideas... lots of options for hiding them. Heck... you could even use Sniipe's method and get a piece of granite for the floor!

    I think i have an idea for the bottom... should work...

    Looking at ordering all my Acrylic sheet, comes to about £25 posted.

    That only gives me one go at each bit, so... fingers crossed.

    I'll be ordering them why my pump arrives for the DeskMod and i have money again.

    Very clever way of making 2 x 12cm fans fit in the front.

    very fast reply... lol.

    I feel i'm getting closer to the finished product now. Just want to wait to see if i think of anything, then i'll de-rivet it, sand it fully, spray it, re-rivet it and yipee!

    Ok, just done some holes.

    I think i might take out every rivet now...

    I'll leave 10mins for some ideas to possible manifest that are only possible with it complete.

    Next chance i get a lift into town (because the plastic shop is out of the way), i'll pop in for some custom plastic. Also, i'll stop at a DIY store and get a rivet gun.

    Once all the plastic has been fitted and checked, i'll take it apart again, sand and spray. Then we're done.

    One thing I've learned is that comments like that have a way of biting you in the butt. :laugh:
