    Well I'm not the jealous type, & TJ07 is my favorite case, & it's built clean & sharp, well deserving of a 10. Kick-Ass RIG

    Im not usually that type either, this rig is plain sick. I mentioned in his log this case would have been a great build for the AMD pure!

    that's why there should be a name next to the votes,, if that was the case I could think of 5 perfect ten build's here on TPU case mod gallery. but it is what it is, & I still visit here every day.

    this is very well done, I know because I was following the work-in-progress thread. But man I have to say your pictures aren't that great, can't really see inside very well, and the resolution is crap too. would like to see with the left side panel off.

    nice work man. classic TJ07 right there :) always turns out good.

    curious. what made you choose ATI over Nvidia? ive been scanning review sites, and all tests seem to support the fact that the gtx280 is the all-hailed best.

    gj with cable management. nice choice with the modest yet gleaming colour scheme :)

    Thanks for the comment I put a lot of work into the project and I like the way it turned out.

    I have a crossfire board and overall the 4870X2 is better then the GTX280. The performance that I get out of two 48701GB is almost exactly the same as the X2 so therefore I decided on ATI.

    Oh and yeah I know some of the pics aren't that great but I am getting a new camera soon so I will post some updated shots.

    I voted 5/10 because:

    Clamps are a pain to deal with plus it adds cheap factor to an expensive build, compression barbs all the way.

    A complete side shot without the panel would be great to feature your clean build imo ^^

    You have got to be kidding me you gave me a 5 because I used hose clamps, you suck.

    Where is your system and system specs so I can give you a low score for some small detail.

    I gave you a 2 out of 10 because:

    It's nice but you put computer parts in your case and I think it would be a lot nicer if it had cereal in it instead. I like cereal a lot.

    Yeesh. Some people.

    Seriously though, It is obviously a very well built system with a ton of time and attention to detail put into it. You get a 8 from me for a beautiful rig, but your presentation is rather hasty... don't you agree?

    Hasty, as in my pictures suck?

    I know but that was the best camera I had to deal with. I am getting a sweet new camera after Christmas and I am dual looping the system soon. So there will be a Revision 2 of this project.

    Oh and by the way do you have any 1/2" compression fittings left?

    I went through the same ordeal with my rig. My camera sucked and everyone let me know it.

    Anyways, I bumped you up to a 9 as promised. Thanks for helping me unload some of my extra fittings.
