Carbon fiber is a composite material that is extremely strong and extremely light.

Not much point in making a CF case but CF is really beautiful....many people get obsessed with CF as it's just awesome looking.

Carbon fibre is used on many race cars....people even make a whole car out of it because it is so strong and light...your in a win win situation

well, its not exactly carbon fiber, its just a decal that requires water and some special tools.

the sheet size that would cover my entire comp would be a lot larger,around $70
