    Green Flame... Finished 8-11-08

    Call me bias, but I think this is Tazz's best work yet.

    I'm telling him he needs to sell it when he's done and actually start making some money with his craft. :D

    I wonder if there's a way to somehow recess that front grill.

    That's about my only critique. It just seems to stick out a bit.

    I think the X-Case is the same as the MicroFly.

    I'll tell you what: After cutting that aluminum, cutting steel was EASY!

    Exactly like that! :D

    Now you can cut a blow hole in the top panel and provide chimney cooling that will really help the GPU's. Maybe mount a radiator on top. :D

    You also don't have to worry...

    Use USB for +5V

    Typical USB pin out is:

    +5V, Data -, Data +, Ground, Ground or Key.

    Each of the +5V leads can be used for up to 500mA (half an Amp) of juice (2.5W) so why not use it if your motherboard has a...
