      Looks like what I did... only a hell of a lot better.

      What did you use when working with the plexi glass?
      Where did you get those metal spacer pieces that you mounted the power to?

        wow.
        i attempted doing a plexi glass case. it didnt turn out anywhere near as nice. I ended up scrapping it.

        VERY nice job.

            Those metal spacer are the same like the one from the motherboard. To get these clear edges, i used a circular saw, to cut the pieces. To get the holes i used a "milling machine"?
            for the heat i am going tu cut 2 big holes into the case so i cant mount 2 fans.. On the pics, the case is an little bit dirty, because my friends touched it more than enough .The cover isnīt screwed on yet...

              I am wanting to build that exact same case. It looks identical to what i had planned even to where i wanted to mount the hard drive to the roof. The only thing i was planning on doing was leaving space for a pci card by mounting it horizontally with a pci riser card.

              How thick is that plexiglass you use? Also where did you get those screws that stick out a bit. I found some like that but they were a little too fat. And one last one is how high is the highest point of the motherboard from the top of the base? My case can only be 3" in height.

              Nice job. Hopefully mine will look close to as good as yours.

                Looks sharp! And given that an epia is 6.75" square, it looks to be thicker than 3".

                  That is fantastic! Your skill with plexiglass is to be commended.

                    leenas...i will use a pci riser card too, but i havenīt one yet..i have enough space for it..I will use a Compo PCI I/0 Card to have more comports and one mor lpt..so i can connect my lcd, touchscreencontroller, iR and a controller to control windows and winamp and so on.

                    The plexiglass is 8mm thick and the screws to hold the plexiglass together? These are normal "sheet metal screws"??i have drilled 4mm holes into the plexiglass and the screws are 4.2mm thick..mhmm..the highest point from the undersite is ca. 4cm, cause the ram..The case is 4,52" high, but when you already have an notebook HDD you can make it really thin..I had to make it so high, becaus i havenßt a notebook HDD yet and had to use a normal Hdd..
