and no idea where to find them. yet!

one of the parts has AMD MARACA. they're out there and I know of one other in Seattle.

That is Stinking Awesome! What a HUGE case, so much room.
I love the bezel and fan you modded in.
I'm curious why you decided on two 450 watt power supplies?

Ok, I'm looking at your pics again and I'm guessing this isn't an actual dog house being converted into a case, but a custom fabricated case.
Am I right?

unsure of it's origins. the mb tray is the whole back section in the second post. I think there are
about 25 standoffs for the mb. a large board at that. no back plane like a desktop.

For some reason I have missed the backstory about this case...
Is there another thread where you tell us about it?

only this one. I called it a 'doghouse' 'cause the 'pet carrier' had been taken! it's mostly aluminum!

I found this at my favorite place to find pc items called RE-PC, formerly Brunos, the leader in trailing edge technology.
located in Seattle and Sea-Tac Mall.

I found two aluminum Liann-Li cases that will provide the parts I need to build the beast.
the slide-out mb tray and hd carrier will be used. heck, the case is so big, I could put 2 complete
pc's inside, with watercooling.

did I mention that I have a 10,000BTU aircon unit to keep things cool?

Brilliant!
There has got to be a better name for such a cool case!
Specially since you aren't planning to put a dog in it

Are you going to put one of those logos on the case?
I think that would be pretty cool.
Ultra Winner?
Untamed Water?
Uranium Walker?
