    Can I ask roughly how deep the custom top is? One i'm eyeing off is 65cm, which will *just* cover the alex drawers with a bit of hangover at the front like yours, but it looks like yours could be 70-75cm? Thanks! :)

    Mine is 900mm, tried one that was 600mm but that was way too shallow.

    Mate, that is almost impressive enough to convince me of getting back into the incredible amount of fiddly mucking around that casemodding involves.

    Very impressive project, great result. Much respect. :thumbup:

    Edit: love the bevelled acrylic fascia/trim for the motherboard, the old school nosecones on the fans, the diffused lighting. Love that little twist you put on the CPU12V loom.
    Beautiful work, almost MDPC-worthy in my opinion. :D
    Hi-res pics up anywhere?

    Edit2: your workspace makes me jealous af every time I see it in your photos... :mad:

    Cheers BR tyvm mate :thumbup: The old school nose cones ive had laying around since HP-5 ! i still find stuff in box's from those days :)

    That work space is a mod in itself... for ever adding to it.. but worth it imo , just makes modding alot more fun.

    The Case mod I still have to finish it... it's going display @ HIN car show next weekend.. hope to get some pro shots :)

    Cool mate, would be good to see a few more shots of the outside in brighter light, i really like that "polar white" acrylic look.
    Tidy job once again. :thumbup:

    How do you guys find it best to measure for custom length cablemod cables etc?

    Run a string line? How to best account for the large radius turns of things like the 24pin ATX connector etc?

    They are reasonable flexible so I don't think you need to really account a huge amount extra. Do you have some really funky stuff going on that default length extensions won't fit?
