    the aero doesn't have a 3.5" external, handle or lcd instead it has a fan controller, 4x usb 2.0 ports, ventilated expansion slots and an extra internal 3.5" bay also I think the windows are removable.

    from the picts it looks like an exact copy inside. The Aero one has better front features, 4 USBs and the fan controllers.

    The inside looks like an exact copy though.

    The Qpack has the handle and underneath its vented (better than the Aero) The little temp gauge on the qpack is silly, but back in its day it was nice.

    When I look at the picts it looks like the panels, mobo tray are all interchangeable between the 2 comps.

    good find... I like the qpack and aero better as there are the honeycomb holes for exhaust.
    (looks like bgears cheaped out a bit there)

    And ur right , I like the slotted pci covers better on the Aero (they should sell them separate for all cases)

    bgears also has honey comb mesh? the rears of each case are the same except for expansion slot covers. anyways I think the cost went to this a touch sensitive led power reset panel in case you were wondering where the power and reset were :)

    Silverstone Aeroslots only problem is they are nickel plated so they kinda offset the look of a expansion slot overall I think every case should have these good for cooling, some expansion slot covers perforated holes are too small and build up dust these are perfect.

    I have been looking at my older qpack
    [​IMG]

    here is the bgears one
    [​IMG]

    I noticed the newer Qpack looks like the bgears one (without the extra vents)

    PS: big thanks for the link to the slotted covers (I never saw those)

    changed the dimensions. now 15" length, 10" width, 9" height
    changed the window. now 11" length, 5" height
    changed colour scheme added third stripe and added strokes beside each stripe for fade effect.
    added ledge inside window to install gas spring so it doesn't touch the motherboard tray
    added second thumb screw hole.

    any ideas?

    yep mount the PS, Hdd, and Optical drive below the mobo and you will have something there.

    That will be sweet with the mobo at the level of the window...a different view than most cases. I like it.

    I want to make a total falling res on top_with a 2ed res inside that did the AMD logo, and mabe a 3ed to do the ATi logo.

    I think it would be badass, then fall on to the rads on the door and make them total viable/

    Now what kind of glue do I need for the plexiglass and where do you buy it>? Lowes

    Wamart had no such thing today:shadedshu


    Well? Good idea, Bad idea, crazy idea?

    You need to get it online at US Plastics or at a plastics shop in your locale. It's more of a solvent but it is called Cement. It fuses the two pieces together.

    So they don't sell this where they sell the Plexiglas at"?

    Ive been watching youtube videos on how to cut it. Use a touch to round corners and blabalbalba there are a ton of videos.

    there is 2 types of glue/cement I used to bond Acrylic.
    One is very thin (like water, needs perfect flat surfaces to bond)

    One is thicker and works better on un smooth surfaces
