Yesterday I spent most of my time sleeving cables/wires with Black sleeving. Tedious work, but I hate messy cabling. I hope whatever PSU arrives is pre-sleeved from the factory. I can't afford the time to perform more sleeving. I also had to make fan wire extensions for 2, exhaust fans in the rear door and
side air intakes. I re-installed the SwordM's pwr/reset which are electroplated chrome plastic and the chrome plated Zalman ZM-MFC1 fan controller beneath the case front I/O panel. Perfect match of switchs. It's gorgeous. I'll take a photo today and post it soon.

The top panel is finished.

Sorry for the long interlude since my last update.

My wife's family is in the middle of a crysis that started Tuesday. I've been comforting her through this, so getting online wasn't a priority over the last few days.

I emailed my AMD contact this morning to see if it's not too late to ship this over to CeBit on Monday. I have no idea if he reads his company email on the weekends. It would miss CeBit's opening days, but maybe make it time for the peek weekend crowd.

I haven't had a chance to take decent pics. Bare with me through this situation, it will be worth the wait!

fyi: Phenom 9900 kicks serious ass. and we got one before anyone else ;)

Thank you transporter!

The case is finished! My goal was to present something original with a Sci-Fi theme that oozed hi-tech. I also wanted a hint of something Biomechanical without the gore element.

The swordM's best asset is that you can't always distinguish the front from the back. You find yourself walking around it to study everything.

My favorite angle.. subtle biomechanical cues in the rear door

Damn, that is awesome. It looks like it can fly with the doors open. :)

If it had red fans and lights it would of had the "Terminator Eyes" look.

But still nice work.
