This is a Lian Li case mod for a client who loves Ultima. The canvas for this mod is LIAN LI's PC-7FN Black Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer. We'll be adding some custom grills and Brad will be handling the custom paint!

Hey Bill how is the airflow with a grill like that? Will intake and exhaust be obstructed a lot?

work...a few, dedication, perspiration, lots of ROG'ahol. (junkie:ie)

Old school lacquer paint'n car guys would say paint is no good unless
you can see the cuticles of your fingernails in the paint.....PASSED. wow!!!
