    Will do, thanks! If not, it'll just mean I'll have to order from FrozenCPU and pay a fortune for shipping, lol. :D Though, they do have some other things I'll need.

    Lol just realised I have the same kind of safety goggles... Got them from Lidl when buying bombs for New Year.

    You know it looks great even without me telling you, but it looks great! Any chance of seeing all the new stuff in the case? I think there's been a while since we saw a full view money shot.

    Slot covers 3rd coming...

    A couple of days some issues with "real life" stuff, but now I'm back at modding...

    Todays topic: Slot covers!

    Okay, okay, I promise, this'll be the last update about those damn slot covers :hehe:

    I decided to redo all the acrylic pieces since they weren't the same shape or even the same size.

    Let's see some piccies...

    Now besides that they are the same size/shape they are also polished quite well :thumb:

    [​IMG]

    Here they are first time installed in the case so that theres no empty slots there...

    [​IMG]

    This is how they look from the inside of the case.

    [​IMG]

    Finally here's the rear-end of the case. This part of the case shouldn't change that much anymore, so we could say that this part is done.

    More later...stay tuned...

    Final parts for the front-end...

    I'm back with another smallish update.

    You remember the polished Akasa Fan Control Pro bezel, right?

    Well here it is assembled...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I used the acrylic bezel with white lettering so that it doesn't stand out too much and I think the result is quite nice.

    Also because the M3 hexhead bolts are a tad too small for the holes in the driverack, I thought that I'd change them to countersunk ones and add some spice to that with baseplates. The baseplates however were not that attractive, so I sprayed them with gloss black a few times, much better...

    [​IMG]

    That's it for now, though there might be something coming tonight still, stay tuned...

    Beautiful! Just beautiful. The Akasa fan-controller is awesome.
    The only nitpicking I have is about the rear fan. Are you going to leave the AC Ryan sticker showing?

    just awesome, everything looks soo great! :clap:
    about the ACRyan sticker, if he's not sponsoring you remove it, it's not even readable beind this mesh, would look much better if it was black (or orange) ;)

    Sorry to bring you down Thomas, but I just sanded down and polished one of the Akasa Fan Control Pros own bezels, factory made :hehe:

    Thanks for the comments to everyone.
