To view this case mod, go here.



Mods:
I built the entire outside out of wood. The 1" support beams are black walnut, and the panels are oak. I took the motherboard tray and the drive bays out of my old case and screwed them into the support beams. I had all the wood, so the whole thing was free for me to build.

And for the updated part i added to cooling fans, did more wire management, and finally put 2 coats of varnish on

9/10

because you dont see a wooden case everyday, was going to give it an 8/10 but it was really nice and tidy, I would post my case but people dont appreciate custom painting even if it is just 1 color..... nice parts also I would give you and 10 if you have a good graphics card doesnt need to be anything special

8.5/10

All right, I'll bite........

Not the first time a computer geek got wood over his rig......

*Bad dum ching*

Looks nice though. Seems like it'd be hard to keep cool though---Wood's quite an insulator. Airflow is key.

Funny 8.5 out of 10...

Well good job with the exhaust fan! Air flow is very important :).

Much better this time around.

Nice job Gilligan. I voted for outstanding. That's because the case is made of wood, it's different. You put work into it. One question, do you worry about possible fire hazards?
