Unfortunately, it would seem there's a subset of people who register accounts simply to troll the Case Mod Gallery. I'll give you a 10 to help counteract the troll votes and because it's deserved. Sweet build, man. Always had a sweet spot for 2P builds, esp. with 8-Core Xeons. Extremely clean and aesthetically pleasing.

sorry for repeating myself but...

I voted 10/10 because:

It is easy to vote a one and not give a reason.

There was an experiment conducted where one person was hooked to a chair and another person was placed in front of him. The person that was not bound was told they could push the button in front and give the person in front an electrical shock. Very few would do so if the bound person could see them but when they were cloaked so that the bound person could not identify them they became almost sadistic. I am not try to get behind the ideology of those who give ones without justification but I feel she should be required to say who they are so we may also look at their accomplishments. I am sorry for becoming long winded but this is a case modification site not a performance site those who truly work on their cases producing a one of a kind deserve our respect for their accomplishments and should be judged according to those standards. You can purchase a lot of part and put them together yet you have not done any medications, but painting, changing design, being creative is what medications are all about. So my standard is if I can purchase and produce the same computer it is not modified, if I have to perform design changes, and extra steps to achieve the same design it is modified. Can I produce a computer that looks like this one off the shelf; no I can’t so therefore this is a modified computer and I vote 10 to counter the children who hide behind their mask not wanting us to see their work. I also like to give pointers where I can to help my fellow modders.
