Another fine project guys! Those carriage bolt heads add such a nice subtle effect (as do all those little touches you guys add to mods). That PSU location is pretty crummy, but sacrifices have to be made for such a compact case.

Your CustomPCMAX intel gamer is well priced but the other two seem rather highly priced but who cares aslong as the knaives pay . Looking good so far I think this case is a ugly mofo from stock.

The big fan on the top is a green LED fan. Along with that, I think we will be putting some additional 4 in cathodes (green) in the case.

I've met a lot of pc builder/enthusiasts who dreamed of owning their own Gaming PC Co. I would have loved to have been a part of AlienDell or VooPackard in their early days. Nate is the first local guy I've met who knows his stuff. I really want his start-up company CustomPCMAX to be successful. It's not going to happen overnight. It will take a long time to build a reputation for himself. Working on this project together is just one of the ways Nate is diversifying his skills. I hope we can work together on many more cool projects like this.

I myself got serious about it about a year ago. Sketched up multiple cases I was planning on building, put together a business plan, put a lot of thought and planning out into it. But in the end I decided against it. You have to have a good amount of luck and advertiseing on top of making a great product at a competetive price, and competing against the already established boutique companies, the companies who advertise in all the PC mags, not to mention the plethora of companies around my town who already do it, and a lot of computer enthusiasts build their own. It's hard.

But it looks like that company is already doing something right. If theirs anything that's going to get you recognized and set your apart from the others, it's doing projects like these on not even released cases and getting them out in the open.

Great job on the case, it's looking great.

I have been working at this for a few years now, it is a difficult road as you said. There is a lot of competition, almost too much to make this a sensible idea. Getting yourself recognized in the web is extremely hard as well. Most of it just takes time and doing whatever you can to get yourself in people's faces.

Bill has been kind enough to allow me to work with him on this. It is a pretty lucky strike for me.

Since you can't edit threads older than a certain point... I will put this here. BUt, I wanted it in the first thread!
