Any one can put massive stuff in a rectangular big box. It is quite a challenge trying to stuff things into a small space and still manage to keep it cool enough to perform normally as every day PC. Rectangular/box is boring.

TPU should separate this site into two, one with OC (manufactured case), and the other really is about case mod (build from anything else but a PC case).
TNX!!

Well lotsa ppl have different opinions on what is a "CaseMod". A majority loves a case mod if it has the latest uberleet hardware in it and did throw in some lights. Look at the ratings this case gets. It rates from 6 to 10. So definitly ppl don't like it and don't see the effort it toke to make it, or ppl rate it a 10 that see the effort (tnx all for that..:D). It's like pantherx12 tells : it is not his taste but still can appreciate it.
Case modding should be were it stands for : modification.
On bit-tech they solved this by adding the tag "scratch build" or "case mod" to every project.
Believe me a pyramid shape has it's challenges and restrictions regarding stuffing a pc in it (i won't do it ever again...:D).
In the end it doesn't matter how anyone regards it. It's you who has to be satisfied on what you did (and I am..:D).

I completely agreed, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. I guess we could called it "PC-Mod" for others, however specifically "Case-mod" is about the case art. There are OC-mod which I also appreciate the technical difficulty of cooling. I have couple of cases mod here and I know how difficult it is building crammed case, but I've never voted before. Yours are an exception, I gave it a 10.

I got some new plans for a kewl thing but it's not a pc-mod. Just designing it if it's feasable. Think about hellraiser.....:)

This is one of those truly awe inspiring mods. I have seen a lot of mods and a lot of unique concepts and this is among my top five mods ever seen, easy. I am not even a fan of Stargate, but nothing knocks truly artist talent.

10 from me total Respect. I'm passionate about all things Egyptian , but most of the Pyramid cases I've seen haven't really excited me. This is just outstanding! absolutely awesome :) and thanks for taking the extra time/effort to do such an awesome work-log. A lot of information there that will be so useful to so many people...
