Dan and I have had a lot of fun and a lot of headache with this build. It was definately interesting, 1.5m tall and barely anything remaining from the oringal cases. I would like to thank all the sponsored that helped create this case and also those that helped. Its time to start benchmarking and overclocking, maybe a little bit of gaming to.
