Thanks to:
Barry Sharp &
Shawn Erickson for endless questions and listening to verbal updates
Slaymate and Hardware Hell for sporting my worklog and questions
Logan Goodenough for sacrificing dad playtime for PC building time.
Charlie FM 97.1
Donna Essenburg for her great customer service

Thanks for all the great comments. The hard drive is the warmest running item in this case. The honeycomb flow straightener on the input ensures that the MB and monitor never share heat.
you can access any panel at any time. I made the frame so I could do that. My other acrylic cases used blocks to assemble, so if you removed more than 1 panel it started falling apart. this stays up with any one panel on or removed. Here are some more pics of the keyboard and LCD cover:

Hre is a close up of the seams, all the front panels were cut at 45 degrees to show as much of the framing as possible and make one visable seam.
