    Not to be picky, but flipping ATX around, doesnt make it a BTX which is an actual form factor for a mobo. This case is simply reverse ATX :)

    Ofcourse BTX is another form factor. My case is ATX reverse (like BTX). Corrected.
    Thank you for warning.

    Ofcourse I will pay attention to the balance problem Dude...

    Empty case with radiator is unstable.

    But there are already heavy items at the bottom of the case... As PSU + HDD …

    I can add a little weight if they are not enough….

    Hi

    I would go with a pastel color, not transparent.

    But for the color.... maybe royal blue or lapis blue? (little difference)

    Either way you'll need to mix the colours yourself!

    Mayhems ultrapure plus a single drop of their blue dye perhaps? Please don't put pastel in it. Everyone is just riding a bandwagon this project deserves more!

    Love the "out the box" thinking!
