All pictures are at the bottom



Well, I finally got a couple more things done.

After looking over the pieces that were dry I noticed that a lot of them weren't very smooth, a lot of bumps. So I wet sanded most of them, a few turned out just fine. Here is the front panel that slides up and down on the case.


I got my shipment of fans in the mail. I never have used a 120mm fan before, and I have to say, they are a lot bigger than I thought. The hole I drilled was almost perfect. It is gonna look great in the case when it is mounted.


I dremeled out some holes for some switches I am going to install on the front panel. You won't see the mess I made of the holes, thankfully.


And I finally cut out the 80mm fan grill on the top-back of the case. I went with straight lines. What do you guys think of it? I'm wondering if I should leave hole as is or the normal circular.

I normally don't like yellow, but in this case (pun intended) it looks good.

Let me know if you guys come across anything bigger. I'm just fed up with working in a small area. Bigger is better, isn't that what they say?
That thing's tiny.

Go with a CodeGen S-101

14 bays
Dual Power Supplies
4 fans on that back panel alone

I can fit my mobo, power supplies, drives, and (3) 1 gallon milk jugs in the case

THAT'S a case with room to spare

Thanks! Most of those boxes are from old builds that me and my roommate built for people. I think that we have a total of 5 of them we've used. All of those boxes now are filled with old mobos that we have broke And that green case is my roommate's comp. I'll see if I can get some pics on here of it.
