    Yeah. Tony got all of the damaged parts that came back from Vegas. Naturally, none of the carbon fiber got damaged.

    Tazz, that case reminds me of the muscle car era, and I mean that in a good way. Did you mod that fan and trim or is it purchased like that?

    Thanks for the comment .

    This is how the case looked originally.



    As stated I didnt get the carbon fiber panels. I subbed in smoked plexi for my panels and added all the extra aluminum, which can also be purchased at www.MNPCTech.com.

    Default How about some pics of the production unit?



    Here's what it looked like right out of the box. Hey! That front grill looks like an MNPC-tech!



    The plastic ON and RESET buttons have been replaced with aluminum billet.



    USB, Firewire and Audio have been added to the side panel.



    The chrome VGA and CPU vents have been replaced with a fine black mesh that easily blends in with the carbon fiber.



    The power supply bracket is now part of the rear frame instead of a frame screwed into the rear panel.



    The motherboard tray is now a thick piece of aluminum. Tabs are molded into the aluminum frame to help support the tray so it doesn't shear when the case is shipped with heavy components mounted within.

    A cast aluminum support bracket helps hold the power supply up. This bad boy can keep the power supply suspended even if it's not screwed in on the back.



    Note the "Power Bar" along the right side of the motherboard tray. This delivers power from short cables going from the power supply to the top connectors to peripherals plugged into the connectors at the bottom.



    Here's the case with the X3 1000W installed. Still waiting on a short set of cables to hook up to the top connectors of the Power Bar.



    Here's the front with the bezel removed.



    Check out the big bolts holding the frame together. Much bigger than the original. These aren't stripping out any time soon.



    Here's the front 120MM mounted to the frame.
