can't say that i care for the gray plastic though, i think it would be better if it were metal. that inside of the case looks really clean and neat.

This isn't a case mod! It's a case build  :thumbsup:

That case, but for the aluminum-base, was built from scratch!  :o

That plastic grille is actually wood, too.

While technically impressive, it seems like the "He built something novel with a Mini-ITX" has been done to death.

In terms of size constraints and thermals, he could have stuck a few frozen waffles in there instead.  It's not really a challenge.

Building something that looks cool while keeping a complete QX9650-Crossfire-and-RAID setup running cool is a very different game-- and you don't see it as much.

more power != better
though i agree that shoving a mini into something small because you can has been done to death, that isn't exactly what he did here.
building something is not a challenge. building it well with craftsmanship is.
