I voted 5/10 because:

who voted 10 !?
not value 10
5 at most!
so, you posted a 5 cause youre mad about some one elses opinion on my case? and thats somehow justified?

please, feel free to explain how you rate this a 5. and what you, in your awesome wisdom, think a 10 is.

having a huge budget and buying 7k in hardware then throwing it into a case (also prebuilt) with a few pretty lights is not a mod. thats just having a lot of money. anyone that can plug wires in can create that.

10.

Some of these votes should be audited. This is a completely custom case. Excellent work.

I don't know why people have to act this way.

Hello Sinzia, as for temps the CPU sits in the mid to high 60's during stress, and 50's during games with 1.42v to it. The gpu hasn't broke 40 yet, so when I get home from this trip I'm going to see just how far o can push it. (i have a plan and reasoning ill explain later)

As for colors, the inside is actually a light grey, but the pics aren't doing it justice.

Voted 10/10 - You built it yourself, can't be more "custom" than that.
However, would be nice with larger pics :)

10 outta 10 for sure. Completely custom case, and a very impressive design :D not mounting the fans on the radiator is very unique. Well done!

Thank you Jester and Huddo. as it sits, im working on plans (in my head) of what exactly im going to do with a case for my wifes pc. the hardware inside will of course be what ever is current, and of course in good taste cost wise ($ doesnt = mod) so thats not really an issue. im looking into very scratch resistant plexi, with a thin steel liner. just need to finish details, get started, the create a mod log.
