As an aside - do you think a different type of wood (maybe a hardwood) would have acted differently to the heat problem. Was the pine seasoned or 'new.' Just trying to think around some of the problems wood presents when exposed to heat.

As for bandwidth.. pff, we eat that for breakfast.

I hope Blackmesa hl2 does aswell, it's just as incredible

Some mods on Bit-Tech.net just don't deserve to be: MacroCase springs to mind. Forgive me if I'm missing something, but isn't that just a Lian Li with some extra drive lights, some wheels; a window; a fanbus, and a LCD display? A more cynical mind would assume that staff writers are putting their mods up there regardless of whether they actually deserve to be there or not, when they have a wealth of truly awe inspiring mods in the forums.
and before anyone says anything, I'm not having a pop at Macro... as that would be silly - he's done some awesome mods... this just isn't one of them. In his own words: "This article is not meant to be a step-by-step how to but rather a This is what Ive done to my case sort of article."
Yeah... you added lights and wheels.
Get the dead weight off there, and start pulling some of the more juicy stuff off the forums!!!

Mods appear on the site for a variety of reasons and one of the common reasons is that they offer something new or unique to the modding community. In some cases just because they are really that good!

Unlike many mods which at that time looked like they had been performed in the dark with a tin opener. The fanbus lighting concept is now found on some commercial units.

I'm waiting guys...
