    I right you Assassins. I will try to keep a log here of my MOD Project.

    Case Hardware will include the following:
    ASUS P5N32-E SLI
    Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Kentsfield 2.4GHz
    CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)
    EVGA 640-P2-N821-AR GeForce 8800GTS 640MB
    Western Digital Caviar RE2 WD3201ABYS 320GB
    Antec TPQ-850 ATX12V / EPS12V
    LG 20X DVD±R DVD Burner with LightScribe
    Audigy 2ZS Pro Platinum

    Quick shot of the innards. Thanks to Spl@t for catching the RAM issue.
    Its fixed PIC doesn't show it.

    Some parts I ordered just arrived and they look pretty good.
    I ordered a new Lian-Li Side Panel cause the one that came with the case has grill holes on it thats even to big for a 120mm grill.
    Lian Li Side Panel PC-60 PLUS II Cases - Silver

    Here's a PIC of the parts I ordered. I want to note that each one came wrapped like the one shown on the right. They look fantastic! Thanx to Bill for some free Cable Clamps. Nice;)

    Now here is a Sneak Peak of the Side Panel with the Machine Billet Fan Grills and the Custom Vinyl. Note: The Vinyl will also have a Alum. Frame installed around it and the Panel will be custom painted a dark blue.
    I am not sure of how I will lay them out yet but I am kinda leaning toward the first PIC.

    Hey, why didn't someone tell me that 3/8" aluminum is a bitch. I measured out the frame. I then used my Jig Saw to cut as close to the line. Now I am filing down to the line. Will post some PICS later today if my old hands recover from filing. Jeez, this is just the outside of the frame. LOL

    Yea, figured that out. It cuts like butter with the Jig Saw but filing to a little more effort. Anyway here's a couple PICS. Will work on the inside cut tomorrow. Then next up is sanding and polishing it a little.

    Just finished up with the inside cutting and filing. I still have to drill some 3/8 Countersink holes like on the other Alum. Parts. Then on to Polishing.
    Looks like sanding and then polishing since there are some scratches.

    Very small update. I drilled my holes and did some light sanding.
    Next up polishing. I personally am not very happy with the shape of frame. There are a few areas where it is slightly off. Guess doing all the cutting and filing by hand shows. Well every Mod has to have some character and I suppose this is mine. Its still going to look good.;)

    That looks like a nice finish there dude. Clean lines and the holes look pretty even too. Keep it up man.
