its an antec slk3000b, standard black tower. I would love a case with a side window, and as you can see, I already have cold cathodes and led fans to turn this mother out!!!

btw, my rig is:
asus m2n-e mobo
3800+x2 AM2 @ 2.4
2 gig kingston 533 ddr2
asus 6600 (bfg 7600gt oc coming from ncix)
WD 160gig sata2 +WD 40 gig backup IDE
You should merge this "cardboard box" pic with your first post here so not to confuse anyone to keep your entry together as one post. I thought for a second you posted 3 entries because of this.

*raises hand*

I err... have been through the Montreal airport! There have been a few times when I've supposed to actually go into Montreal for a few things but it's never actually happened.

I gotta say though, the employees at that airport are the most stern of any I've ever been through. They don't give off the impression that Montreal is a welcoming place, heh.

Those employees are just unhappy that they don't run a hip website called Techgage like you do

I spent a lot of time on this case, I kept running out of parts so I really had to optimize. One big problem is that legos are NOISY, they tend to vibrate and reflect the really high pitches, so I'm thinking of adding some sort of foam padding to the design.

...It can only make it better, right?
Cork can be a real winner for you application, its worked wonders for me, and its a good shock and sound absorber

Heads up: There are a lot of posts in the contest thread that fall under the 'discussion' category, so I've moved them here to keep that thread clean.

Don't worry Rob I have a good one but I have to wait till the weather gets warmer as "it" sits outside in the snow and I don't feel like digging it out.

I think Quebec should separate, just to eliminate my competition in U.S. and Canada only contests.
