    I incorporated almost all the suggestions people made about the last version.

    This station can be set on three of it's sides...vertical or horizontal

    Did I get it right this time?

    Looks sweet! Man could I have used one of these when I was messing with my system while I was modding my case.

    I like the modularity of everything. Is everything secure once put in?

    You should add some colours to it.

    @ DD: Enough that the station can be moved around, tilted onto it's back or sides. But if you tilt it the Drives could slide out.

    I can make a clip to prevent that..but I assume the station is going to be sitting on a table most of the time.

    @MP Nooooooooo I want you to buy this one :D

    PVC takes paint well...but it's 34 F right now so no paint.

    haha i would, im guessing your US though? im in UK.

    Pitty about temperature, that would look awesome with some colours and neons etc.

    Im not sure about me buying anyway, i have a DeskMod that im using now. A spare case and RAM thats being turning into a media PC. So it'll be awhile before i can get a third PC going.

    Absolutely brilliant CyberDruid!:respect: An idea I have would be to mount (mabye permenantly) one of these in there. You could then just plug the HDD into it and it would be secured.:)

    i would love one of these but i see a big problem that not many ppl other than me would have.

    my 3rd video card hangs off the end of the mobo and would therefore not fit in that rig.

    oh well. still is an awesome idea CD.

    Yes indeed that's quite a problem to have :D

    The idea can be applied to any size or cooling requirements.

    I'm still figuring out what this costs me in materials.
