Got my new computer and it looks pretty good with all the other black "stuff" on my desk.  The pic of the 24 x 36" pine board elk carving is what I am using this computer for.  I do 3D cnc designs on it.  I was having video problems with my other computer but this one is crunching through the files with no problem.  The 8800GTX is worth the money!
back to work,

Looks like somebody's been polishing BlueFeather's wood.

The pink glasses?  That's because BlueFeather is a girl!!!  I was just trying to show my new computer and what I use it for.  Shocked   Not too sure about some of the comments. 
 
The computer is working out great.  I'm waiting for a new dvd burner to replace the doa one but other than that, I'm very pleased with the build so far.

The carving work is quite spectacular... you do just the designs or do you do the carving work as well?

Kliebor2,
 
I do the designs on the computer and hubby runs the cnc machine.  When it's done carving, I use my dremel and small carving cleanup tools to add very intricate details.  We actually do the staining part together.  Husband retired a few years ago at age 55 and this is something we can do together as a team.
 
Thanks for the compliment on the carving.

Still love the computer.  I cut some air holes into the plexi side panel with my laser.  It stays cool as a cucumber now.  The 8800GTX card was adding heat.  It's really a pretty quiet machine.

I'd highly suggest getting a filter of some sort on the plexi where you lazer cut that hole.  Last thing you need is a 4 inch hole to allow dust into that GREAT new system of yours.

So that begs the question do you sell your work or do it as a personal hobby and keep the artwork?

no fan intakes on systems have filters, in fact, my entire case is open air. clearly it catches dust more easily than a closed water system, but any air cooled computer spends 100% of its cooling career sucking in dust

I've use Thermaltake fan filters on my intake fans for a few years.  Since I have a nice plexiglass window on my rig, I don't want dust visable to anyone looking at it.
 
My system temps went up 2 degrees after installing them, but I don't get gunk in my video card fans (pain in the butt to remove) and it saves me money on buying Dustoff Wink

If Dustoff and Qtips don't do the trick, bust out the leaf blower!

I've posted a pic of the holes on the side panel.  The holes are 1/8".  Most are on the bottom left corner with a few on the upper left and right.  I've always had a fan sitting next to my rigs.  Seems to help the air circulation.  I was going to laser a pic of a big lightning storm on the acrylic but it's extruded and not cast so wouldn't show up very well.  When this one gets scratched, I'll make a new one with the graphic.
 
Dave:  We do sell the plaques and also offer cnc sculpting services on a limited basis.  Since hubby is retired, it's a carve what we want - when we want sorta thing. Clap 
later, BlueFeather

It must have been the reflection from the fan in the original picture that made me believe that the hole you made was a big 4" hole in the side.

A fan filter wouldn't be any use now that I've seen the modification made.  Seeing it makes me giddy with excitement when I finally get back to my duty station and my rig arives!
