Key Features:

360 RAD mount in front! Looks good to me. I might move it higher, but I need the RAD in hand first for measurements.

The mobo tray mod is now 70% done. Still need to be polished and to be painted after.

UPPPPPPPPPDDDDDDDDDDDDDAAAAAAAATTTTTTTTTESSSSSSSSS SS!!

I just finished the new motherboard tray for this project, I'm calling it MoboTray V2.0. The Idea behind this mod is to have a space between the two mobo plates where I can route all the cables and keep the back of the case
as clean as possible. The result, for me, was outstanding. For mounting it on the case, I used the stock holes of the case and attached it using couple thumbscrews. With it, I can easily install or take it out of the case.
This is just one of the unique/innovative mods I will do for this project so please keep checking the build log!

UPPPDDDAAAAAAAAAAAAATTTTTTTTTTESSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!! !!!!!

Shroud-Channel-bay. This is the PSU shroud I made for Project Imagination. It's just like your regular PSU Shroud, but it has built-in floor channel and 5.25" bay mount for fan controllers/etc. Enjoy! (Please ignore the protective tape on the channel)

More coming for Project Imagination!
