    Looking very good!
    Only thing I don't like are the "atom themed grills"

    Other than that, board placement is epic and also the skills to shape the whole case :)

    I'm very happy with the result of the paint.This morning i went back to my work to get the fanblades etc and drove back home to put them back together.I also sleeved the casefans and put a black connector on them and a black sticker on the backside.

    This is the result.

    If I had to advise you on your bulid I'd say you should first think what you want the end effect to be. The impression to me is that you get the new toys and immidiately change your mind like 'Oh, this toy is cool, I'm gonna put it there' ;)
    But it's just my opinion.

    Apart from that, the case is just suberb as for me :clap:
