WOW! Thank you all very much for the wonderful comments.
I'm not sure if this is the place to post pics, but I'm sure some of you are interested in
how CX1 holds up under everyday use. It's been running 24/7 since the 28th of November
and both my wife and I have been using it for our everyday computing. We love it. :)

The Quad core has a mild overclock to 3Ghz and it runs reasonable temps. ;)

PERFECTION
It's perfectly suited to sit on that nice desk:D
I want to take back my words. It's not like a wardrobe at all:o

This is the best case I've ever seen. I'd pay a lot money for a case of this quality and design. Every part was crafted perfectly. Congratulations.

Beautiful stuff! I love the combination of strong industrial lines within the case paired with the smooth curves of the exterior wood finish :) FYI, this has been posted on Engadget!

This has got to be true Craftsmanship at it's best!
I have seen several diff mods but none with such elegance.

Wow great mod. I think I liked it without the wood and just the aluminium though, not a big fan of wood. Great job on it though congrats.

Most builds where wood is included doesnt impress me much since im educated as a furniture builder.
But DAMN, your build is awesome! Surface finish seems to be very nice done which is hard to do.
And the way it looks like one of those spitting b*tch*s from jurassic park makes it fearsome looking and totally beautiful at the same time.
Thougt i wouldnt be drewling again until i reached the age of 80 - 90.
Kepp working on those skills, your an artist !

Very talented man (1st ever post, i''ve joined up just to shout about how good this creation is!)

I've only ever seen mods to exhisting cases but this is a custom built from scratch work of art, amazing.

Mod of the year (possibly decade ;-) )

I believe the word im looking for is 'Thunderstruck' what an amazing example of fine craftsmanship, as well as the sincerity to humbly admit the mistakes made along the way, and recover from them with a truly EPIC case. Mod ON !!

Thank you all for the comments.;)

Hey ramonvitorqo and welcome to Bit-tech. :)
The photo you describe is of the front panel lifting assembly. This is made from 3mm plate,
two telescoping pieces of "U" channel and some brass spacers and nylon washers. A much
more thorough description is given in the project log on this page.http://forums.bit-tech.net/showthread.php?t=157732&page=51
