Where did you get the trays from? Looking good though, when do you expect to have this completed by?

i havent done much to my case lately that you,d notice in pics .butt start testing the airflow witha cheap psu and all the fans in place and ran into a small problem with the hole been to small and restricting the flow of air .ive corrected this by making the 1.5mm bigger and the difference was instant .also dilled out more holes on the hinged side pannel in between the spaces in the side were you can see a few holes the in the pic above but know its a gotten more lol.as for the fans ill using the coolmaster xtraflow fans as there easy to get and i like the black and red look .witch should look quiet the part with the rest of my hard ware .plan on sleaveing all my cales red/black and whit to go with the rog theme and have been speaking to some who prints up viynls to print up a killa rog sticker for this built .also be running red and a blue collant (cpu and chipset block loop blue and the gpu loop in red)now just a matter of time and money butt due to the amount of overtime ive been doing lately the money part shouldnt be that much of a problem .just sourceing the parts i need .

p.s does anyone know if frozencpu.com deliver to australia
