If you go into hobby shops you find you can make models from many materials. Then paint to your taste.

Maybe you could have some PC custom shop do this for you?

If the OP is too lazy to google this topic, he's definately too lazy to mod his case. All he wants is someone to spoon feed him the answers to all of his questions.

Nathan's right... the OP is a lazy little brat. He's been starting numerous threads and throwing hissyfits when people offer advice on where to start looking. God forbid the OP should have to click a link, use a google search or actually think for himself.

I thought this a forum, a place where people can share their idea and help each other. So the poster don't like your idea, SO. Spoon feed??? I guess when you go out and create a whole shopping cart full of items is ok. GET A LIFE!!!!!!

Nathan was simply letting you know that you might be wasting your time on an ungrateful recipient. What's wrong with that? If you don't mind wasting your time, that's fine, but I would think that most people would rather not, in which case Nathan's heads-up would be appreciated.

Just an FYI....

In this FORUM under a question about AMD HS FANs...lost_noob_182 rec'd the following from the moderator. Needless to say I won't be responding to
this poster and most likely those he insulted won't either. You can read the full message from the moderator there. No sympathy here.

'Deleted posts...
lost_noob_182, I have deleted your post due to language and personal insults. Both are prohibited by the forum policies, and will not be tolerated. If you don't find an answer helpful, simply press on or restate the question with as much detail as possible. Posts such as that one are simply guiding lights showing you the door.

Custom Case.

If you know exactly and I do mean exactly. Dimensions in all directions from everywhere to everywhere then you need to go to a sheet and extruded aluminum custom fabrication shop. They are all over. But be prepared for the expense. You will think you are building a race car. Lots of them have pattern laser for custom panel designs but one off custom cases are extremely expensive. I have customized some of the Coolermaster all aluminum cases and they end up around 400 to 500 dollars depending on what you want different than you can buy over the counter. That does not include a power supply. I know that there are some really nice cases out there. If you would supply me with the tech specs of a case you desire i could probobly recommend something or we could talk about modifications.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
