    the problem I had with mine (my first from scratch) was the inaccessible right (MoBo) side, the whole thing had to come out to change any drives, and don't get me started on WM. best of luck to you on this one, they are meant to be flashy pieces of art, make us proud.

    Thats a lotta lights! My only problem w/ acrylic would be havinog to stare at the CCFL bulbs. I prefer a glow cast on the system by CCFL's that are hidden behind something opaque so you can't see the bulb directly.. (gives me a headache... plus looks n00bish IMO).

    I think you should do some painting on this bad boy, like that one case... Must Kill Teddy Bears... or something, then you could hide the CCFL's behind some paint strips... Just a thought. Tis your case, and your eyes

    That is the exact same case I made the MKTB's case from. Think of it as a foundation to what could be a finished mod. The cool thing about acrylic is it's easily changed and replaced. the bad is it easily broken.

    I never had a problem with heat with mine. For the most part I liked the case. getting into it was a bitch and I found that i left all 27 friken side screws out and just kept the door on with 2 or 3.

    I had a sunbeam acrylic case as my first case and I must agree thegrimone, it was the worst thing to work on as it takes about an hour to install any thing in the drive bays and nothing is toolless. Also, Acrylic cases can look really sweet, but be warned, they require a lot of work, especially in cable managemnt as everything is seen. So minimize some maintence, I would say that dust filters are definately a must, especially on the front fan that blows over the hdd as dust can get in and clog up the platters.

    On a final note, acrylic has a melting point of about 266 degrees f, so theres nothing to worry about there.

    Good luck
