Default Atomic Case Build

This is a project I'm working on at the moment - a mini ITX computer case build
I updated it today and thought I'd do a shameless plug here :P

The original design was just a box, and I've redone it since then. I think I'll reread my worklog too

Here it is:

Edit: I'll post some pics in this thread too

Awesome work! Me, I'm probably far too lazy to ever do something like that, but this is a pretty neat project. Also, I assume that you have enough ventilation on that case? It's probably fine since it doesn't seem like you're packing gaming hardware into it. What exactly are the hardware specs?

It looks alright and is evidently well crafted. I don't think the shape offers any practical advantages though.

It is designed to put the monitor on that ledge?

@CA_99 it'll just be a dual core Intel Atom, 2GB RAM, 80GB HDD and a DVD drive, so 2 4cm fans should be plenty (one on the top, one at the back)
@Cantab not really unless I, like Atvan suggested, put a monitor on it.
@atvan That was originally the intention but I'm not sure the little block of wood glued to the inside will hold the weight of the monitor. I may need more araldite :P
