    Had a really cheap idea. Got some screws and cut off most of it and glued it into the holes in the front. Unbelievable how such a small, cheap thing can make that much of a difference :)

    Wait.... what?

    The front panel wasn't secured with bolts in the first place?

    The front panel is screwed to the case but the acrylic and fan grill are just stuck on top of the front panel with double sided tape. I made some mistakes in the thinking ahead process so I just had to do it this way...

    The front radiator wouldn't have fitted in line with the grill anyway...

    Finally getting the motherboard on Monday so I decided to install the LEDs and do as much cable management as possible before the mobo installation. All that is left then is the CPU and liquid ;)

    Looking sweet.:D
    -One thing:You could lash the gpu power cords to the side of the front fans. It would hide the ugly side of the fans, and straighten your cables in one fell swoop.
    -Ignore me if that was the plan all along.

    Thanks mate :) I had been thinking about it actually but I probably wouldn't have done it unless someone had pointed it out ;)

    Can't you route the cables from the videocard up to the roof and then to the front/back?That would give it a much cleaner look.
