    Been looking into getting a test bench/tech station type setup for a long time now. Since I have built or extreme modded every case i have ever owned I started thinking why should this case be any different.

    sooooooooo after being inspired by a few others I have seen over the past month or so, I figured it was time.

    It will be white and (not sure) ... still in the design phase and have not yet worked out what other color I should go with yet. Trying to think of something that will help keep the noticeable dust at a minimum :)

    Everything horizontal will be one color and everything vertical will be another color.

    I am thinking like a dark red for the other. not sure still thinking on it though.

    Yep, do not be jealous of my mad drawing skills :p

    the 'Duke' I was thinking of cutting it out with a colored acrylic behind it so it will shine through in a nice color ... or somehow cut out the acrylic to fit in the holes (not sure about that though, we shall see)

    PSU may go in the middle to help for maximum efficiency of wire management so still thinking on it.

    trying to make it water cooling compatible so thinking one side will be able to house a swifttech 320 rad ... or 220 .. not sure what yet ... but water cooling will be a little further down the line. I just want to make sure I can do it when I want to. (look at the Back plan and you will see my idea) trying to keep the rad standing up. Never have been a fan of sideways rads.

    Got those 2 pieces ready to cut for the most part. they are both 2' x 3' .... so that leaves me a lot of room to put stuff :)
    and yes this will be one heavy SOB when I get done with it haha

    7 looks good but that E looks accented so when I pronounce what I see in my head it's like Dook-Aye...

    Sweet I can't wait to see this done. I have also been thinking about making a testing platform, but mine will probably just be an acrylic sheet.
