    Holy cow! Awesome res. :eeek:
    If the rest of the rig is built like this, you'll need a sturdier frame.

    Today other objects arrived.
    These are steel blades to create a sort of grid.

    Wasn't so keen on your grills until I saw them in the case. Very nice combination.

    If you sanded down the fittings, if they are copper then you might get a really cool look

    It's time to face the topic of cables.
    Since the case will be completely open I will not be able to hide any aberrations of wires, so to better organize the cables I made a plexiglass support for the MB and the cables.

    It is used to connect the psu, which is positioned in the lower part, to the cards that are in the upper part.
    The other plexiglass plate still covered by the protection will help me to block the cables.

    I created tracks on plexiglass where I will insert a 18 AWG rigid copper wire to connect the various connectors.
    I used the rigid cable because it made my job easier and aesthetically I liked it a lot more and then it is more in line with the mod since one of the protagonists is just the copper and therefore why not put it in plain sight.
    The rectangles are the seats of the connectors.

    Then to connect the motherboard and the video card I will use the classic method of sleeving.
