Thank you, and yes, it's very expensive. .

3D Printing in regards to my needs is only good for prototype making, far too slow for my production needs. I just happen to be in the right place at the right time, and recognized the opportunities. You can't make a living from building one-off custom PCs, it's a luxury with a very small market. MaximumPC did interview with me in 2013, https://www.facebook.com/Mnpctech/photos/?tab=album&album_id=529519093795466

Custom work isn't cheap and it's not for everyone. That is why it's called "Custom" My next personal build, when I can afford the time required and hardware, http://mnpctech.com/cooler-master-case-mod-mastercase-5-pro-window-clear-smoked-mnpctech.html

Custom work isn't cheap and it's not for everyone. Consider how many hours and dollars it would cost you to replicate everything we did. This is my next personal build, that has taken me nearly 4 months to do, when I can afford the time required and hardware, http://mnpctech.com/cooler-master-case-mod-mastercase-5-pro-window-clear-smoked-mnpctech.html

Yes, the image doesn't do Leonard justice, but try hand airbrushing Leonard over perforated grill and not make him look derpy. I did this other tribute to him for Comic-Con, without derpy artwork, http://mnpctech.com/star-trek-gaming-pc-case-mod-tribute-to-leonard-nimoy.html

nah, Will just loves Gaming and nice hardware. This is the recipe he chose, and "custom" doesn't come cheap. as for $50 grill, just replicate the same exact grill design and construction I did for less for than $50, and get back to me... Most of the build stages are documented here, http://mnpctech.com/phanteks-luxe-star-trek-tribute-gaming-pc.html

I've been building custom "over-the-top" rigs full time for past 10 years for friends and companies, just do search for "mnpctech" in Google Images and check out my gallery here, http://mnpctech.com/mnpctech-case-mod-gallery.html

agreed, sleeved cables would have given it that extra detail, but Will didn't want them. Custom work is expensive. Consider the time it would take you to replicate exactly what was done, could you paint the same graphic theme on the same case for few hundred bucks? Maybe... I don't know your background. You can see some of the stages here, http://mnpctech.com/phanteks-luxe-star-trek-tribute-gaming-pc.html

ha, Will loves RAID... I plan to only run two EVO 840 SSDs in my current build project here, http://mnpctech.com/cooler-master-case-mod-mastercase-5-pro-window-clear-smoked-mnpctech.html

simple, Will didn't want it.... and as much as I love liquid cooling, liquid cooling your RAM isn't necessary. I do have another build where I'm cooling N&S bridge, but again liquid cooling RAM is fun, and cool, but isn't really necessary for performance. http://mnpctech.com/cooler-master-case-mod-mastercase-5-pro-window-clear-smoked-mnpctech.html

Thank you, btw, if you're a Trek fan, I had created another case mod few years ago inspired by Spock's Tricorder for Comic-Con, http://mnpctech.com/star-trek-gaming-pc-case-mod-tribute-to-leonard-nimoy.html

Thank you Jipster, it's rewarding to know that we could help bring more exposure to Leonard Nimoy's spirit in a PC build. This was actually the 2nd one I've created, the first Trek case mod I did was inspired by Spock's Tricorder for Comic-Con here, http://mnpctech.com/star-trek-gaming-pc-case-mod-tribute-to-leonard-nimoy.html
