    This is the best thing ever.
    I recommend a desk fan in the side to cool the monster.

    Made it to the front page of OCAU!!! Woot woot!!
    You're in the big league now Hive, don't fuck it up by doing something dodgy like using a dremel or something.

    Now that's ramping up the safety of the build: don't piss around with a CO2 extinguisher when there's 240V present, water FTW :thumbup::thumbup:

    Mod suggestion - more ventilation in the side of the case for the gpu fan (when you get it working again), just make sure it doesn't align with the fan though.

    Leave the pc on long enough this might happen

    Keep up the good work Hive, there aren't enough builds of this calibre.

    Lol, best thing about the case is the built in floppy bay. You should mount one of those LS-120 drives in one of the other bays using a bracket for extra class.

    I've just recommended this thread for Million-Dollar-PC. They haven't had a new one in while, I think this is what they have been waiting for!

    Oh So Epic!@

    Pressure is on to perform now.

    You're not going to set the extinguisher off prematurely are you?

    In keeping with the current theme, how about some speed holes?

    Pantyhose material over fan vents keeps the dust out. :thumbup:

    It worked for me but pissed off my wife.

    Word of warning - fishnets do not work as an alternative.

    I don't enjoy study though.

    Needs more floppy drives for a floppy raid array

    The front page got me here... and I approve of everything I see so far.

    Such a beast as this must be heavy, I think it needs some shopping trolley wheels and a rope handle/carry strap for lugging it to LAN parties.

    Sub'd!
