    You might want to try Bit's picture storage instead of google drive. (although I'm not sure you can access it if you are really new.)

    If you have some minutes you can use Flickr to share your photos.

    Flickr keeps the original quality and you can upload a lot of pics before the needs to swap to a paid account.

    With it you can share them easily.

    Sharing with Google photos is not the best way, at least in my opinion.

    Oh I Understand it. Realy. The Link is free now, its the 2nd post. I cant upload pictures directly in Bit Techs Picture Storage. always getting allerts file size is to big or safety errors. even if i downsample them from 4k footage to 720p or less.
    *EDIT Uploading Problems are gone now

    I did some custom acrylic panels for the inside and outside of the InWin 928 case. Ech wire of the power connectors can go through seperatly. works similar to a cable comb

    Bottom plate with Oblivion Logo and Pass-Through for the Watercooling Tubes

    00 CAD Motherboard Tray.jpg
    The Main Plate, also with Pass-Throughs and a window for the reservoir

    00 CAD Front and Top Grill.jpg
    Fan grills for the Outside of the case. I Dit some Cutouts and covered the holes with them in Front and Top

    00 CAD Fangrill Inside Top.jpg
    Fangrill for the Inside maybe??? I am not shure for now. I need 2 places in the Inside and actualy searching for the best disign. this one is my favorite, but only for the top. front doesn't match with the fan-position

    Testing GPU position with an older GPU (Galax / KFA2 1060 6GB GDDR5X, Galax has different names in different countries, in my country it is KFA2) and marking Cutouts for cables and pass-throug fittings on the Motherboard Tray. I didn't like the position of the GPU. Sorry for the mess in the background^^

    Painting the case in March 2020. The Case should remind a little bit like an Ayleid-Ruin of the "The Elder Scrolls" games and so black isn't the right collor. I also paintet the inside-curves of the fangrills with silver and rust-fx-paint in layers so it looks like rusted steel

    Getting the final laser cuttet acrylic panels. for the Bottom pannel i also did a clear panel only with the pass-throughs for cables and fittings (not the symbol) and a chanel for an LED strip and frosted it so the led lights getting smoother 03 Finish Bottom Plate Lasercut Acrylic.jpg

    The Motherboard-Tray gets a Mounting frame for the inside fangrills. you can see it in later pictures (will follow soon. need to downsample them)

    Here you can see my attempt not to cry when i sleeved the cables with Parracord (shrinkless, also first time) for the BeQuiet PSU. i know, everybody says, "if you whant to sleeve your cables by yourself for the first time, start with nylon. its easier and you won't be so frusttratet after all".... i tryed it, but i think after all nylon sleeve is harder to handle than parracord^^... and i think it worth it
    04 Trying Custom Cables 01.jpg

    The big black plate in the background is a part-painted clear acrylic plate for hiding holes and getting a better window for the led lightning. i also put some alumic foil on the side where the reservoire is placed 04 Trying to Custom Cable 02.jpg

    and of course the front view is chaotic as the back side while sleeving. i didn't made an extension for the 24p cable of the PSU. but... 05 Caos with 24P Connector.jpg

    ... i did it. everything is working fine, no damage, etc. in the window of the reservoir and the cutout of the Oblivion logo i addet some transparent Montage Glue. It looks like water whenn the leds are on. I also frostet the tubes a liitle bit. thanks to a tutorial of Bit-Tech Master-Mind Alex Banks^^

    That came out great. :D
    I wouldn't paint the reservoir. It's acetal, and that stuff is nearly impossible to get paint to stick to.

    well from the reservoire (watercool heatkiller) i have the original top without connectors for tubes. i will try it first with this one befor i paint the res in the mod. i will use plastic primer for the base of the paintjop and than acrylic paint in white. if it won't work with the original res top cover i wil only sanded the black alumic strut of the res so the black paint will come off. if the test paint will work i will paint the acetal parts of the res in white too. but thanks for the tipp.

    Depending on the situation a good vinyl wrap is a very good alternative to paint, you just need to do a very deep clean of the parts to be wrapped, and be careful about the bubbles.

    A friend of mine came by last week. She said that my room could use something green. She thought on plants. But she knew, I am more deadly for plants than a desert. So she bring some plastic plants. I put it to my mod. I Like it :)
