    fantastic.

    couple of questions
    just for clarification, this is a scratch build?
    this .skp file of your componet layout, any updates on it?
    planned WC componets?
    how attached to the waterfall res are you? couple of EK multies do OK?

    anyway, i was thinking something like this
    [​IMG]

    couple of multyoptions pokeing out the front, offset by some buble lines / lit plex rod / CCFL - just tossing ideas around at the moment

    perhaps with a cyberpunk / giger / necrotic biotech feel.

    fantastic oppertunity to abuse someone elses wallet :thumbup:

    Can you give us some ideas on what hardware and what cooling equipment you'll be using? Mainly for the colour scheme. Also what 480 rads? just checking on sizes.

    I don't think that there will be a .skp file but it shouldn't matter too much just remember the 5.25 bays are in a weird spot and leave room for the res on the front.
    I will be watercooling and I will probably have a evga x58 classified mobo and I'm thinking a 5870 or 280. Colour scheme isn't that important because my brothers a spray painter so I can give him some cash to do it when ever.
    I will get the quad rads from pc case gear and they only have one model so I don't have much choice. I am not that attached to a waterfall res but it would be cool.

    Just make a cool case outside with those dimensions and epic can just edit it around the layout.

    Brah, I think this is the kinda thing you have to do yourself. Choose what you like from different cases, and mash them together :)

    That's the problem. I have no creativity and suck at drawing.

    Same here, my case design looks like the drawing of an autistic 4 year old who got into MSpaint for the first time, yet I like it.

    Give it a shot, something you like should happen.

    Wow, I wish I was good at sketchup atm :p

    I reckon just pick a whole bunch of cases you like, let me know what bits of those cases you want, how many 5.25 trays and HDD trays and I'll mash it all together till your happy with the end product.

    The best case I've seen is dark blade. Also if anyones good with autocad that's fine to.

    What about an area 51 case?

    Is anyone else planning to enter?

    No you can have whatever you think is good but I did have the idea of an area 51 themed case.
