bit-tech: How long have you been involved in Modding? Have you made any cases before this one?
Benny: Since 2001. I have made four previous cases, such as Sunray and Digistation.

bit-tech: What inspired you to make this particular case?
Benny: A chieftec 601 is not very special to mod these days, everything is done already. And I wanted to show you can do something special and new with this case

bit-tech: Tell us more about this case: what makes it special? What are its unique features?:
Benny: A new front in MDF (painted and varnished) and a self-made logo "BENNY". Flashing LEDs in the front made from a guide from a modding site. It’s a very clean case, with a double ground to place the cables underneath, silver cables for power, a window from left to right over the top of the case and a polished PSU, with a glowing B logo.
