It might be in the early stages of building, but we were so impressed with the concept and design so far that we thought Negative Space deserved a place in this month's roundup.

The early renders are what caught our eye with clean lines and a bold colour (in fact they show the project in several colours but red was our favourite). Despite appearing to be build to house a mini-ITX or micro-ATX motherboard, Negative Space will actually be able to house a full size ATX motherboard.

In what appears to be a bomb proof and LAN party-friendly design, the case is braced by numerous corner sections and on the right we can see pieces of the frame itself, neatly cut so they meet at angles.

The side panels have been cut out of sheet aluminium with two 120mm and two 80mm fan mounts for cooling. They're shown here half-complete but B[x] has done a great job considering he cut them out using a Dremel attachment and a jigsaw.

The case is on the verge of coming together and on the left we can see most of the component parts. On the right, the frame has been assembled to it won't be long till things really get going.
