    I admit, it is kinda addicting. I'm trying not to get banned, which is my usual state of being at most forums. I'm sure I'll have lots of questions once I get all my parts and start building... which wont be any time soon. Has anyone here ever used 2 way mirror acrylic as a case material?

    Look up. Look way up.
    A 2way mirror? I haven't seen one yet and that's a cool idea. which side will the mirror part be on?

    As far as being banned is concerned, just keep your posts clean, don't flame people or run them under the bus making fun of them or being downright nasty and I'm sure you will be okay. TPU is a friendly bunch here and questions will be answered no matter how stupid you think they are.

    Remember this, all of us were noobs at one point in our lives. ;)

    Mirror in. Since 2 way mirror works that the dim side you can see through, and the bright side reflects, if I light up the inside of the case in a dim room, it should be pretty spectacular. In a bright room, I suspect you would be able to see through it but it'd be smokey/translucent. I wouldn't do an entire case that way (I think that would probably be kinda disorientating), but a couple walls might be interesting. I'm going to go with this case maker, have not decided the design yet, but I love his work: http://lazerwerx.com/services.html He has (had? might be sold by now) this one for sale now as a demo case: http://s954.photobucket.com/albums/ae26/Lazerwerx/Mid Tower Air/ but I think I actually need to have something a bit bigger than this. His cases are really sharp, though. He says he's never used mirror due to the expense. At around $250 for something similar to this but full tower, the price is not unreasonable. I was kinda scared to ask for a quote, expecting it to be much higher. I probably don't need a full tower, but I like things clean, and I'd hate to end up with something cluttered looking in the end.

    I'm never mean and wouldn't flame anyone, I'll try to *behave*... erm... try.

    I have seen it once before as a complete case (built kinda like a Mountain Mods case with this as the panel material bolted on the outside) and a few times as a case window that would only show the internals if the lights were on inside.

    Yes, that would be very cool, I think I am going to do this (if I can find anywhere to buy one sheet at a reasonable price). I plan to have it lit up like a rave on the inside.

    Check your local glass cutting businesses. Techincally, I believe it's acrylic, but many of them will still stock it (or be able to order it for you). Sometimes they have renamnts left from other jobs they'd sell cheap, but that might only work for the window.

    I prefer feser one over any custom coolant you can make up, it gives great temps and i never notice any gumming or whatnot on the internal components, it also has just the right amount of biocides and anti corrosives, not to mention i've seen it beat out pure distilled water

    You know I just popped the side panel off and looked at it and it's pretty straight. Maybe just the picture playing tricks on us. ...and yes it does look like it's bending in the picture, but I'm looking at it in person, if so it's very very minimal. Looks really bad in the picture though :roll:
