Always a fan of red and black themes :D

Interesting - show us moar!

Im always use black/blue themes.. this time im too lazy to paint or hide  the mobo/vga    :D

 

Thank's for follow:) 

 

That last CAD drawing reminds me of pacman.

 

Awesome work, very well chosen color scheme. Can't wait for the update.

 

Today i will post more pictures! thank's!!

 

omg! ive always wondered how you keep the wires matched up!! you just cut, and then finish one at a time? ugh.. so simple! :)

 

Basically yes, before i just take photos in the both side of connectors (to reference) and crimp one by one :)

 

Cool project, and welcome to the Mod Zoo!

Thank you Bill !!

Today it's saturday in Japan, time to make something. I think about to paint some part's but it's raining :(
My friend gave me this Colussus M, definitely this m-atx case is awful to mod them so i decide to use just the frame.

    There's a thing here. Somehow it moved to the top of the page, but I didn't do it. No, really! But still, Cheaps is likely to blame...
