I woted 10/10 because I will never see a case like that here in Sweden and it's the outside that counts.

EDIT: I'm having problems with my system, was gonna vote 8/10 because:

This is the fourth time you have posted this case on TPU.

Boo! You should have just left the first time on here since you got a better vote that time. Have you noticed how every time you have posted this, your rating has gotten worse and worse?

I have won rig of the month before so I know how nice my computer is. I don't care about the rating this much, whoever gives me low rating is just jealous!

I might be deleting the post AGAIN! and reposting new pictures with some lil new mods. I don't see anything wrong with that. Its not like I have repeted posts..

As long as you are having fun.

Case of course get's a 10. I just ignore the internals as the HW spec and arrangement can always change...

How's that Tidewater working for you?
