    Here is the original model with no cutout's (My friend made all of these designs for me), I was thinking of leaving the front like this:

    I then decided to have the fans show so to begin with I had the front open:

    Then I added the design to the front (Final Design):

    Yeah I completely understand, I've noticed this same trend. It would nice if there were more than just the two options when it comes to building a loop, but I guess that just means we got to start coming up with creative ways of using one or even both styles in a build. And the same thing goes with the way we go about modding our cases.

    I've seen some builds do really well with the hard tubing, and some do amazing with flexible, but the problem I've seen is that sometimes the build doesn't use the style that fits it.

    I'm glad you prefer the flexible tubing in this build, it took a while for me to decide what parts of the loop would be the acrylic tubing, and what parts would stick to the flexible tubing. :thumb:

    about new trends...I am generally not a fan of this rainbow RGB lighting effect, but it's the third time that I follow your thread and I must say that it looks pretty nice in your particular build, besides I love your front design grill and your case is really beautifull... also impressed by the extreme neatness of your work and pictures...:thumb:

    Thanks kim for the very kind words :thumb:

    I'm very picky about details so a scratch build was perfect for me, and I tried to ensure all the details of this build were clean and organized. I was originally going to set all the led's to white but the colors ended up working well with the case. :)

    That are some nice modding skills man! I like how you used the aluminium, really clean-looking.

    I got a quick update, Here is some of the last components to go in the case that I just finished sleeving.

    Had to sleeve these cables and replace the red connector with a white one to match the case better.

    Looking really nice! Ever since I got my Ncase M1 I've had a thing for small and space efficient build!

    Just out of curiosity why didn't you just have the back panel be apart of the front unibody design and just bend it at the top so it comes down then screw it in place at the base like you've done already?

    Thanks kim :thumb:

    Thanks FatalSyntaxError :thumb:

    I really like efficient builds, after looking at a lot of cases I decided that the only way I would be able to get a case that is as small and efficient as I needed was to just build my own.

    I wanted the back panel to be separate from the uni-body because I like the look of a separate back panel and allowed me to use a thinner metal for it making it distinctly different than the uni-body. This also allows for easier future modifications and color changes if needed.

    Thanks for the kind words, I am in the planning phase of the next build, which will be much smaller than this one size wise, hopefully you'll like it as much as this one :thumb:

    Beautiful! 5 out of 5 stars.

    you made something great. The RGB-table plate really brings the whole build together. Great work! :)
