My Son wanted a LAN rig so I decided to do a build based on Danger Dens 450 case. The case is designed to be air-cooled but I decided I wanted to fit some real H20 inside (not one of those self-enclosed kits). The build will be upgraded to ASUS' mini-ITX Sandybridge mobo when it is released. GPU is an ASUS Geforce 460. The backside will be air-brushed with Dragon Ball Z image by Steve Nunez. Will also have MNPCTech handles and feet painted green. Top will have LDR-style fan grills to allow GPU to get air-flow. Also using unisleeved cable extensions all around (cables will be stealthed by a mesh cage I am making).

Handles just bolted to acrylic but it is 3/8" and sturdy. Case does not weigh much. With two handles weight is well distributed. Trust me, I build a ton of acrylic cases and know the limitations well.

Lookin good DB!

BTW, I just finally pulled your 8800GTX's out of my old rig last night. They've lasted me a long time. They're still working in fact but I am moving my loop to a new case with new hardware.

Different subject: Do you still prefer compression for everything or have you found any QDC that you like?
