yeah, leave it to him guys. You've been ripping him apart w/o knowing anything about what he's planning to do...if he screws it up then he does. No point in giving critiques before he does anything.

Good luck man.

My thoughts exactly.

Ya'll act like he's never picked up a tool in his life.

Let's wait till a result emerges.

I'm interested to see the finished product. Don't let these guys discourage you.

No one here is trying to discourage him. All we can do is make observations and hope to see some photos of the finished project.

Nice!

Though for the top I would personally drill the fan holes into the window, not have the tabs like that.

Also you may want to re-think your cooling idea. An ideal situation is cool air comes in one direction and exits on the opposite side. Sure the top can exhaust hot air but that won't help components which are further back than the top holes are.

Ideally you'll want the same amount of fan holes on the opposite side.

that case looks huge...what parts are you considering for this case?
are you gonna upgrade what you have right now or just stick with what you have?
