Design your case mod in 3D...

Free tool from Google - SketchUp:
http://files.aoaforums.com/I2695-Goo...UpWEN.exe.html

It's fairly easy to use compared to professional software. You can create pretty much anything as a scale 3D model. There are plenty of free models to download, as well.

I found a ready made model of my case. Mine is silver and taller, but I can soon change the colour and size...

That is great. Nice way to work out what it will look like and catch any flaws in the design..

When you get your virtual computer built and running, make sure to load up folding at home on that bad boy....

Nice Job! That is some detailed work.
I really want to do my 3d in SketchUp but for some reason I keep going back to AutoCAD.
With all the hours you are putting into the modeling you could be modding instead....
But I'm not complaining. That is one awsome graphics card model.
Are you going to share some of that with us?
