    Update #1
    This is my monument to gore and chemlab, I guess. I like a big mix of practicality and off-the-wall style. You should see that recurring throughout the case,
    That all said, the specs:

    1024 (2x512) single channel Edge ram
    DFI Lanparty Ultra-D
    x850xtpe 256mb
    WD 250gb 7200rpm IDE HDD
    56x Cd-r drive
    16x8x16x Dvd-rw drive
    Black Ultra X-finity 500w PSU with flexforce cables

    In ways of cooling:
    3x 120mm 1800rpm blue led fans with Silent Cool Technology by NZXT
    Blue backlight lcd fan controller
    - Controls up to 4 fans
    - 4 temperature sensors with fahrenheit or celcius readout
    - Clock
    - Clock alarm
    - Temperature Alarm
    - Fan speed auto-adjust feature

    More coming later, when I see that someone has actually looked at this, hehe.

    Update #2

    So here you go (planning pictures) - Click to see full size and read text:
    Original case (not mine):

    Sexified (couldn't resist)




    Happy modding!

    Edit: This is actually update #11 on CMG, but I figured that it would be better for you all to see this ahead of time, because they didn't, and they got lost trying to figure out what is going on.

    Edit #2: This isn't on CMG anymore (cuz they suck), and I these plans have changed significatly enough to not be relevant. Anyone who has read the planning pictures, lucky you, you know the most important mod that's not mentioned anywhere else in the thread. Pics gone.

    @TGS Hehe, I havn't told anyone but it'll have a head that looks like it's pushing through some thick liquid, like house of wax or han in frozen carbonite.

    @senior Thanks man, when are you gonna start a worklog for some crazy mod?

    Update #3

    This update is all about the contrast.
    I started by removing all of the parts from the comp, which had at the time never been run due to a backorder on my psu.




    After drilling through a number of rivets, removing the top, the bottom, the feet, the front and the two side panels, the chassis in all of its sexy chrominess.


    Take this babe out to a well ventilated area with it own designated cardboard box.

    Some reading material


    Layer 2 of stated primer


    Layer 1 of Rust-o-leum white, metal spray paint


    Layer 2 of stated paint


    Enjoy! Questions/comments always appreciated.

    Update #4

    Window one

    One sexy window update.

    You start by planning



    Now I know that the Nemesis and Nemesis Elite both come with pre-cut windows standard, but that won't do at all. How _____ (adjective) can a square be?
    Working with this, I had planned to order another side panel, with no window. It came to some $25 or so. Yeah right. After lengthy observation, I noticed that the motherboard side panel is the same panel as the windowed, without an ugly hole in it, but turned upside down.
    Going off on a limb I switched them around and viola! They fit perfectly. I soon added to my written plans, intentions for the window reversed.

    My uncut side panel taped off (with compass - not for this window )



    My dedicated notebook


    And cut

    (Tape peeled off to examine damage to surrounding area)

    The cut-out, code named Jared, and the testee of many painted metal experiments.


    Going to school. They didn't like him there, he's rough around the edges, if you know what I mean.


    The tools


    Unplugged like Nirvana.


    Same with the sound equipment.


    Almost forgot: The god behind the window


    All of this was done in my basement, unfinished at the time, which I now sleep in.
    Updated pics of Jared upon request.
    Comments? Questions? Spelling errors?
