Hello people!

1st, i will introduce myself!:

I'm Pieter Veenstra, and i'm 18 years old, and i live in the Netherlands (small ****hole:lick:)My english is very poor, but i do my best!

I started casemodding when i was 15 years old or something, and this is mysecond casemod i have made.
My parents have a stone machining company, so thats were the idea came from.
The material coms from Sweden, and is called: Light Labrador, or Bleu Pearl.
The normall price of this stuff is $150 m not polished or anything.
But i got it for free8)

I started building my case in January 2006, and now its almost done!

The Hardware:

CPU: AMD Opteron 165 Dual Core (S939)
GPU: ATi Radeon X1800GTO By: Sapphire
Mobo:ECS nForce4 A-939
HD's: Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 320gb, Maxtor 80gb (both S-ata)
PSU: BeQuiet 600 watt's
Mem:1536mb DDR1 400mhz

I will not translate everything of my worklog on Gathering.Tweakers.net, and will also not post every picture here.
But it will give you a good idea of the whole working process.

I won the 2nd Jury price @ this contest!

http://i1.tinypic.com/6ku1mo5.jpg

And about 650,- of prices!

The PSU is changed already, by a BeQuiet 600watt modulair, and i'm going to change the HD stickers also....

BTW....the final weight of the case is 72kg!

If there are any questions...just ask;)
