Would you guys be willing to pay £130 + shipping for one of these midplates with your custom design on it? perhaps £100 + shipping for a smaller size? or £60 + shipping for a less complicated design? really the larger and more complicated the design the more expensive it will be but just show me your interest and i may start producing them.

Remembered seeing this on the WAN show I think. I'm starting to gather the tools and materials for this, but have been wondering, did you cut the spaces for the radiator and PCI slots after having it engraved, or did you have it cut when getting the design done?

 

At first I thought I would have a problem with seeing the sheet with the LEDs on, but I'm planning on getting a bigger sheet for the top one and bending it so it sort of becomes a PSU cover type thing too. Might even put another design on the side so that it's not just a sheet of black plastic.

yeah i used a jigsaw to cut the radiator space out afterwards because i changed my mind on the radiator placement after cutting the midplate, if i had known it was going to be mounted on the front i would have laser cut it out.  GL and if you have any other questions drop me a pm.

Thanks for the post man :D, my PC has been fairly stock for quite some time now, and has started to look a bit bland... after reading this post, I realized how readily available the parts i needed were at my school DT classroom. 

 

since i had the corsair c70 army green edition, i decided to make the mid-plate the same color, and since i already had the nzxt hue, the lighting was already covered.

 

some pics of it done (i forgot to take pics along the way... ):

 

(ps sorry for the grainy pics, these were off my phone xD)
