First!, looks nice, I'm not a fan of smaller PC's but I wouldn't mind having this one.

Very nice build. Attention to detail and good craftmansship. I like it a lot!

Nice, I really like the design of that.

Looks quite fantastic - it really does - but does it have enough raw power to play back full HD content?

Looks awesome. :D I need to sort out a new HTPC (smaller, as I've moved and don't have the same amount of room I did... :() and none of the cases I can buy really do what I want. I'd build my own, but don't have the time, and it certainly wouldn't come out that neat. Nice, nice work.

Sleepstreamer, g-Gnome, Wolverine, Benny, Macroman (the pioneer)... These are the prime evils for casemodding!

I can't remeber anyone else that could use visible screws with so much charm as he does! Always with great ideas! Up to now, this is MY vote for MotY!

Grats friend! Nice work as always! ;)

I never saw a build log, and that makes me sad.:( This is really beautiful. I feel your pain on the part about the masking fusing to the plastic. I had a sheet like that. It was a nightmare.
Homemade buttons rule!:D

Awesome build! Although seeing all the corner ribbing you did brought back painful landing bay memories. Thanks for that! lol

Only thing about the write up is that I'd like to have seen more on the hardware mounting and internal layout. Otherwise, awesome project!

Actually tbh, I haven't tried full hd on it as of yet, but when I do I'll leave a comment in this thread :)

Wow that's some very high praise, I'm honored! I'm also very happy about you mentioning the screws, as I'm one of those people who believes that well placed screw heads actually adds to the look, rather than clutters it up.

You might be right about that, if you're interested I could post some pics of the internals in this thread. Heh, well my small corners can hardly compare to the agony of ribbing an entire case!

Looks very nice! I think I would have went with some metal feet/stand and polished it up but thats just me. Great work!

Gorgeous, as always!

WOW man, that is a really sweet mod, just amazing. I really like the design and feel of the mod.

Very nice, I do like the look of that.

I don't see an optical drive in any of the pictures, is that correct? One would fit in the wht external look niceley along the black strip on the front, but I don't know how that would work inside.

****! That thing looks fantastic! The attention to detail and quality of work is incredible.

Skiddywinks demands more modz!

Nice build.
Why not take advantage of the cooling capacity of the aluminium you built it out of? Make it noiseless and get rid of those fans?

I have many wishes for my HTPC but the biggest one is dead silence combined with large storage capacity :)

So where are the nude shots you have promised :)
