    We had a cold spell and a foot of snow here, When I woke up yesterday I noticed my water pressure was very low and I heard a noise under my bathroom floor..
    Poor pipes exploded:eek: So I spent the last 2 days in a foot of snow trying to replace the pipes in my poor house.
    When I read that I realized I was cheating using a top and bottom piece from another scrap case so this is for you SK:toast:
    I just finished up changing some lights in a fan for KBD and between all this mess i made a new bottom for the case. I think its much nicer looking than the one I recycled.

    Basic case base

    My version
    [​IMG]
    I wanted good mobo cooling so I thought if a 60mm fan was cool a 120mm one would be cooler, lol

    [​IMG]
    I really like the 45deg rail I bent into it (bout time I class up a mod, lol)

    PS: BIG thanks to MNPCTech for the beautiful case feet. I ordered some mesh a long time ago and they threw them in the box and asked me to use them..Well this seems like the perfect mod to do so. I have no clue how they can make $ off these things, they are fricken elegant.

    wow those are nice im glad you got them though those are super nice unfortunetely they would be wasted on most color schemes for example if i put those on my armor it would look rediculous im glad you got some though you have an uncanny habit of being able to impliment everything in a smooth design concept while keeping in mind realistic and set goals.

    Yep thats them, I am gonna color these to match the case when Im done.

    I have no clue how they can make them and make a profit as well.. But its cool to support good ol USA ingenuity.

    Thanks SK.. tomorrow I will do the top. I was thinking of making the face out of CarbonFiber with the 3 120mm fans mounted flush.

    LOL, nope.. I talk way too much and wasted time so it got really cold and dark. Il get the water running tomorrow though.

    Hey Adam, I see you lurking..too bad you didnt show up today you could have spent it with me laying in the snow soldering pipes..

    I cant wait for you to see the tricked out fans:twitch:...
    This weekend I will mess around with the CarbonFiber to see what makes the best look.

    Here is a Carbonfiber shell I made for a Shuttle case
    [​IMG]
    It has a thick coat of Ultra-Glo on it. I may try a front that has a more natural look to it.

    wanted to, but I was on call, just got home not to long ago. Soldering pipes sounds like way to much fun, especially since it's just a tad cold out there.

    Looking good Mark...this build is flying along nicely.

    I cant wait to see what you do with the carbon front panel and fans, if that shuttle case is anything to go on then it will be special.

    Those feet look brilliant will have to check them out myself.
