I liked the font number 2, but it defiinitely looks better as a cut out. Very nice.

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.

Awesome Idea!!! A few years ago I made a very nice wooden case for a client to give as a gift to his wife. The wood was not this thick but it was sturdy enough with the way I designed it. It even had hearts for fan holes instead of circles :D

Anyway sweet case!!!! :respect:

haha thank you :toast:

I just dont know though unless you lived close enough we could pick it up because shipping would be outrageous :wtf:




Also:
Has anyone had experience with red CCFL lights? do they look red or are they pinkish?
Trying to decide whether to get red lights or white lights that would shine through a red transparent sheet behind 'Duke' to make it stand out ...

thoughts or ideas?:toast:

perhaps white cathodes are very very bright so make sure if you do that the red is relatively dark

I stand corrected. They do have simple overall lines, but you are right they are different.

copenhagen, looks like a great project. Sorry if you said it already, but what exact kind of wood are you using? Just curious.

I was going to say #2 on the font but what you went with looks nice—good choice and nice work.
