    a. Name of mod:
    EIZO FlexScan T68 Monitor – Gaming Case Mod 2009
     
    b. Description of my case:
    Idea
    When my fantastic EIZO FlexScan T68 died I felled very sorry since we already have been friends through 8 years where the EIZO FlexScan T68 monitor have given me the best pictures I ever have seen on a monitor. So I thought this should not be the end of my great EIZO so my imagination was questioned how could I still get anything out of my old monitor, even if it not could deliver any pictures anymore?
    Since I like to have a PC case with my one touch I thought it could be nice to make a case mod where nearby all used hardware was visible. This was the beginning of my EIZO FlexScan T68 case mod project, where you could see the hardware I have used for my project through the acrylic glass I have build into the front of my old monitor.

    As much as I appreciate the complexity of this build, I don't like it. One of the bigger reasons as to why people got rid of their CRTs was because of how bulky their were and unpleasant in the aesthetics department.
    Also, the power cable sticking up in the air could've done with tucking under the m/b tray.

    Pretty cool idea, but more a novelty than anything else. If you could replace the acrylic at the front with a TFT screen, that would be kinda cool.

    Also, am I right in identifying the lack of an enthusiast GPU in there? :p
