Today, i finally found the drive-rails for the case, and when it came to test fitting the drives, i was very suprised how good they were, all it needed was a quick squeeze on the metal progs, and out they came.. to be honest, i love this case, and would reccomend it to anyone. It has no fans, removable mobo-tray and is made of steel, but its the perfect size and has features....
well, i decided in a moment of madness that i needed to use a second FC, so i whipped out my Zalman FC from its box and shoved it in...
The 4 dials will be for the push / pull fans and i will try and get the 5V / OFF / 12 V switches for the Cold Cathode power things... ( i hope!¨!!)
the driverails still need painting, but im not sure f it would look better..
well, after some 200 grit quickly and one layer of primer and a bit more 600 Grit this is were we are upto..
please dont take the rip out of my fake leopard skin cushion, my mum made it for me...
now, back to my current life...
(ooohh love my viewsonic monitor....)
i've put the first layer of black on the frount and it looks suprisingly good... and no, steel cases arn't bad, just heavy compaired to the new light aluminium cases.
Its a Viewsonic VX924 and its about 6 months old.

Little update, im now in the middle of planning how i can mount all of my watercooling system in my case....
here is a stone-age mock-up done in Paint with an old photo...
the problem is that the outlet of the DDC is flat, not at 90* , so i'll eitther have to mount the rad so thats its impossible to bleed, or i will have to go and get a little box so that i can put the DDC in and it still looks black, with some small holes for the barbs, so it'l look like an aquacomputer FMJ sort-a-thing..
Otherwise, ive been hunting around for some blow-hole trim, and no-one has any... awwww...
And ive been planing the cutting area and holes to mount the rad and fans to the case..
well havn't done much.....
i decided to take off the PCI back panel of my X1800 to get it ready for painting..
and the back panel and tools i used-
And my little toolkit i use for my PC's
(the reason its not fully painted is cos. i ran out of primer...) and these fans will be on the otherside of the metal, its just easier to work out how to mount it this way,,,

Hmmm, that cushion sure is a funny looking cat
Look at the second picture and the position of the "tail"................. my guess that is actually a sting, and the creature is supposed to be a hornet
