Once you go Aluminum you never go back

Its like going from a metal body car to an aluminum body car.
Its like going from a gas powered car to a Tesla.

Here are some of mine.

This case is a Legend in computer art work.
Its the Cool Master Wave Case.

This thing is machined out of Aluminum.
A real piece of Art.
When turned on the front lights up with a Blue LED and I put one inside too.

I have a Silver and Yellow one.

I will posts more photos later.

I always wanted an ATCs case but could never find one.
There is a Black and Blue Cooler Master Wave case too. Anyone have one ?
I still have a new Lian Li in box.

I love it, do you know the exact model of that case?

I believe it is the ATC-S 500. I had to beg the user 6 years ago to post it for me. Was up for collection only. More photos of the build here...

2 of my "completed" builds in alu cases (is a computer really ever "done"? =) :

Year 2004 system in a Lian-Li PC6070.
IC7-MAX3, P4-3.4GHz, Radeon X850XT PE etc. etc.

Millennium monster (Year 2000 build) in an early Cooler Master ATCS:
ABIT KG7, T-Bird 1.2GHz, GF2-U etc. etc.

My weakness is building a system then keeping it that way.
Which means I'm constantly in need of more HDD's, floppys, ODD's etc....

I've been (re)using a lian li lancool k7 as my primary win10/gaming setup. Anodized black aluminum, good airflow, decent ergonomics and case features. It was purchased for my i7 2700k about a decade ago now, and kept it rolling with the cheap i7 6700k 'rebuild' from some parts i bought for cheap.

I love it because its sleek, light, and great at dissipating heat. My buddies complain that I should get one of those garish cases with a window and all that crap, but I'll stick with this. 😀

What the typical thickest aluminum sheet?

Cheers,

I dont know but the black “Fata1ity” case have very thick Aluminum panels.
Re: Post photos of your Mega-Luminum computers.

Just look at the thickness of the side panel.

The “Cooler Master Wave” case has thick aluminum too.

First aluminum case I bought was the Lian Li v1000. Here's the old pic with my AM2 build in it back in the day.

Then later I reused the case for a i7 920 + GTX295 quad SLI build - it briefly held the 3Dmark world record until LN2 guys smashed me:
