Automotive antifreeze? Awefully opaque.

Maybe a little too much green for me. Would be nice to have some contrasting colors -- maybe a really dark purple or black contrast?
Quick Microsoft paint thought:

Am I crazy?

Nicely done, very neat and tidy. The idea of some additional contrast sounds like something you might want to try like suggested above.^ Purple would look cool. Overall cool mod! 8/10.

Hmm.. alright?

This is a hell of a computer, don't get me wrong. I was just stating that I would like to see a bit more contrast to all the green. Isn't the point of this section of the site to post your PC and get ppl's opinions on it?

I don't think someone should be downplayed as a skeptic just because they are stating their opinion.

Solid 10/10 from me.

The acrylic skins you fabricated for everything are awesome. Despite the other comments you have received, I like the uniform green color on the inside. Nice desk setup as well.

Just curious, why is the acrylic over the video card rippled on the top; is that due to heat?

... Must be; in one pic it is flat, and in another one it is rippled.

ty ger do u complain bout everything lol
No, I don't think so.... Are you saying I am a jew? :D

I was totally curious, not trying to knitpick. I was wondering if the ripple was to make room for SLI connector in the future or what it was for.

Sorry.

That's funny,, I never hear anyone say, Dude there's too much Black, you should call it Night. It's not about the color,, It's about the quality of the mods & originality.

Holy Cra* !!!

I thought I had seen it all. This is absolutely gorgeous. I have been trying to work with plexi for month now and still screw it up more than half the time. I am using a scroll saw with a 9" arm and even on the slowest setting I'm breaking blades like crazy ....But, any faster and the plexi has fused back together before I finish the cut. I red your entire work log and you make it look easy ( you're not showing all the filing and sanding for hours shots.) Anyway I love it in all its black and green (and no PURPLE) beauty. If you ever find the time could you please put some tips on working with plexi on line or just pm them to me, I could honestly use all the advise you could give. Purty please???
In either case you get a perfect 10 from me. I love it.
