bit-tech: How long have you been involved in Modding? Have you made any cases before this one?
Loki: I started in 2000 and my first isn’t worth mentioning and doesn’t have a name.

bit-tech: What inspired you to make this particular case?
Loki: A friend of mine had a Yin Yang cube and I wanted to have my own Cube. I used ACAD CS to make the drawings and the design, no theme, just a nice design.

bit-tech: Tell us more about this case: what makes it special? What are its unique features?
Loki: I don’t want to make a special mod; I wanted to make something you can set in your Living Room, a case that doesn’t stand out. It’s water-cooled (Coolance) CPU and Northbridge. CPU P4 2.8, 1gb A-data, HD 2 x 200 GB (Maxtor)1 X 80 GB, and a ATI X800XT PE, wireless LAN card, DVDROM
