    The cube

    So here we are at the end of the road, this has been a very long and exciting journey. It's hard to think this took 2 weeks, but it was well worth it.

    With this case being solid wood it's very strong, heavy and quiet! With only 3 case fans one intake left side and 2 out this stays much cooler than my NZXT Tempest that had 6 fans... My gpu's are sitting at 42c each they used to be 48, 50c my CPU is at 35c fans are at 70%...

    So that's enough talk lets get onto the final pic's, I hope you all enjoy these and sorry I'm not a pro photographer, but I used my T2i.

    :pimp:

    With how much time this took the labor would go for more than $400 :eek: I would need to invest in a C'n'C machine to make it much faster and with no flaws.

    Nice build indeed. I would have suggested some more intake/exhaust in the motherboard area but it seems your temps aren't to high to cause worry. nice work. Very impressed by this.

    Yeah when I was building I was hoping temps wouldn't be bad, but they have turned out to be much better than my old case. CPU idle 36c load 49c, GPU 1 42c load 68c GPU 2 40c load 66c. In my old case the CPU temps were about the same, but my GPU temps were much higher idle would be 47-50 load 68-72c.

    This is on all old tech too, so I'm think when I get my new parts things will be even cooler and I won't have 2 GPU 's.

    My old case was NZXT Tempest had 4 120mm and 2 140mm. And that case sounded like a jet! This case is supper quite, the loudest thing is the GPU fan, and can sometimes here the HDD but ever so slightly.

    My GPU 2 sometimes won't kick on its fan because the cougar fan is so close to it, but I lined it up so its slightly higher and to the side so it sends air to the CPU fan.
