Nope.

I don't need or want the exposure. Garrett can have the credit for it.

Well I thought I would toss in an updated shot. I bolted in the last two items (pair of 8800GTS's) for this mod and classified it FINISHED today.

Specs:

Case - Ultra Carbon Fiber Chassis (no proper name yet)
Processor - AMD Athlon 64 X2 5600+ @ 3.0 GHz
Cooling - Ultra ChillTec (modded with red LEDs and red display screen)
Case Fans - 3 120mm Ultra Glossy (modded with 4 LEDs each)
Motherboard - Asus M2N32 SLi-Deluxe Wireless Edition
RAM - 2GB (2x1024) OCZ DDR2 PC2-6400 Dual Channel SLi-Ready Edition
Video - 2x XFX nVidia 8800GTS 320
Sound - Integrated SoundMax
Operating System - Windows XP Pro
Hard Drive - 2 250GB WD 7200 RPM SATA 3.0 16MB cache & 2 80GB WD 7200 RPM SATA 3.0 8MB cache
DVD-RW - Lite-On 16X DVD +/- R drive
PSU - Ultra X3 1000 Watt



I wanted to take a second and give jonny some special thanks . If not for him this mod would have been non-existent. I will make sure to toss a few back for ya bud.

Don't know if or when these will be available outside of system builds. Only time will tell.

Well... one of the last things I'm doing, or have done, for Ultra is to build up some more of these rigs for shows, LAN events, etc.

I received the new "final" version of the case. They made some changes to the bezel and the side panel.

First... the bezel....

The most noticable thing is the "ULTRA" logo added under the 3.5" bays. As you can see in the second photo, with the lights out, the logo lights up.

The next change is the grill on the 120MM intake. It's now a more subtle black chrome, or black titanium, finish instead of the high polish.

The edge of the panel that makes up the bezel is now beveled. It used to be a flat edge, but now it's nice and rounded.

The biggest improvements come in the side panel.

The panel used to be held in place with six screws. PAIN IN THE ASS.

Now, the panel is held in place with four springs and two clips.

First, you'll see a picture of the side panel sitting loose on top of the case. Yes, there's now a small window in the side panel. This is an option.

The next picture shows the spring loaded clips that go onto the bottom bar of the frame. There is then a picture of the spring loaded clip on the top.

The fourth picture shows me pushing the bottom, spring loaded clips, onto the frame of the chassis. All one has to do is angle in the clips and push to open them up.

Finally, you swing the side panel up towards the top bar and engage the clip.

To release the side panel, there are two small plastic tabs to push down to release the springs.....

I just popped over to see if they had listed any dates yet. I see they changed their pictures to reflect the new revisions. Those pictures don't do a damn thing for that case. They would have been better off going with some of your photos .
