    I pretty liked the way that you disposed the hard disk and the ssd drives, this is an inspiration for me. :D

    This looks fantastic! I can't wait for your next update.

    Those fan stickers you bought from zazzle, are they the standard small sized 3.8cm stickers?

    thanks, glad you like it!

    yep, it is small 1.5" stickers

    ==============================
    now little update, finally I have managed to finish the PSU by 95%
    At the beginning I heatshrinked sleeving just near the PSU output but it turned out not good, at all. I remade it and now it's much better, let's watch step by step:

    Slightly widened the hole, it was completely round at first. Bare metal edge can be fixed with marker :)
    [​IMG]

    Then put all sleeving inside and fixed with zip ties. Also snipped SATA cables and 4-pin motherboard power cable.
    [​IMG]

    But as my friends said, isolating tape sometime tends to peel off under hot conditions, so I remade it with heatshrink
    tiny heatshrink first
    [​IMG]

    then twist the wire and put bigger tube over it
    [​IMG]

    And now there is only 4-pin molex left naked, will do it later while prefinal assembly to cut it to exact length.

    thanks for watching! :thumb:

    I really do love what you are doing so far, excellent clean modding. I actually had a similar mod planned with the slightly smaller variant of that case but now I may have to re-think my plans :D.

    thanks guys, I really appreciate your feedback :thumb:

    there is a thing that annoys me for a quite a long time, here it is (no, not the PSU :D)

    Fixed!

    I got some G3/8" to G1/4"adapter to put black barbs instead of chromed
    [​IMG]

    little bit of a teasing
    [​IMG]

    now I am basically measuring everything to make some more cuts due to the new hardware

    Heh. Great attention to sleeving, and nice pictures. Ive underestimated the use of a cheap lightbox.
