In it rules an Asus A7V and a Duron 700@950, a Maxtor 20GB IDE 72000rpm on the ATA-100 controller. Vid card is an ELSA Gladiac GTS2 and the sound makes a SBLive!. The case is a homline one with 300 watt power, and in the case cooles a globalwin fop 38 and 5 80mm fans blow and suck the rest of the heat. A self-made window and fanbus to conrol 4 of the fans are involved, and a neon light to make the total blue effect.

This is my CORKPC®, The Caseless Case Mode. It is attached to the corkboard in my Office completely by Thumb Tacks/Push Pins. It is a P200 non MMX w/64MB EDO RAM & a WD 2.1GB Hard Drive. The cork board is also known as my "Wall of Shame" where I tack up all my dead hardware. Newest addition is an IBM Microdrive :) Also those are not CDs, they are Hard Drive Patters ;) mostly from Old Western Digital and Dead Seagate Barracudas.
I searched thru the all the case mods out there determined to make the phatest looking case i could. I choose a Lian li pc 60 (the pc 70 came out like 3 days later) I put a 120mm exhaust on the top and 3 80mm on the side. This complements the 4 80mm that come stock with the lian li. I also installed hdd coolers on all the drives (scsi 160) and a dual 80mm pci fan set over the video card. Due to size constriants i choose the EL flatsheets and EL flatwires for lighting. They are a little harder to install than the ones from pcmods.com but are literally as thick as a sheet of paper. You can find them at www.beingseen.com For the cuts i found that the ROTO-ZIP saw worked wonderfully with the sabercut bits. I then used a dremel to grind down the burrs and smooth it out a bit. For the baybus i used the cover slip that came with the lian li. This is not a normal cover slip. It can be screwed to the case and acutually support weight. The buttons (light up when pushed) were 2.99 at radioshack and the thermosister i bought online and put it in there. For the paint on the drives i found a great product by rustolium called "metallic hammer" it adds a very subtle hammered effect to the drives and didnt require a primer. i didnt like the bulky look that window kits give give computers and the lining that mounts the windows has + it would never be able to make the sharp turns on the NIN symbol so instead i used 3m double stick mounting tape to mount the plexy to the back of the case. The tape also proved extremely useful for mounting the EL lighting to the case. For the wires inside i would have loved to use a round cable but since i have lvd drives and there arent any (to my knowlege) available for this i used spiral wrap to clean up the cables. If any one has any questions regarding how i did this case mods (and what i learned for next time) feel free to email me.
