    Diamond Plate Steel Cube Case Project

    ::Update::

    Tomorrow morning Im gonna start building my Diamond Plate Steel Cube Case from scratch (15"x15"x15"). I dont have a fancy 3D program to show my design. So I just scanned the sketch I did. Its gonna have around 5 or 6 120mm fans.



    The bottom half of the case is gonna have the diamond plate steel, and the top half is gonna have acrylic windows.
    Im thinking of painting the Inside stuff Red and the outside Black.
    Should I leave the diamond plate chrome? or paint it?

    Red goes well with Black. Silver with Blue. Dont forget to get your self a forklift. Diamond Plate Steel is heavy.
