    G and this the reason:

    In your case there're this red tubing and those are always found in pairs and apart. So in option G those red sleeves are just like those tubes in your case.

    Still think F. Too much contrast on a light colour case, if the braiding overall is dark.

    Thanks to everyone - results are in:

    [​IMG]

    So now we can eliminate the less popular and simulate these with the motherboard tray - yes it's a walk off! Jeppzer's suggestion is now also included:

    Option C

    Option D

    [​IMG]

    Option G

    [​IMG]

    Option Jeppzer

    Let me know what you think - and please keep it to these four only!

    looks good so far. keep up the great work.

    I'd have to say option D is my favorite. have a nice contrast but isn't as distracting as some other ones.

    Thanks for the feedback everyone!

    Alright - another diversion to clean up the odds and ends - well I got some packages to help with that:

    [​IMG]

    Inside a box..... is another box:

    [​IMG]

    And inside - the opposite of a CaseLabs case - cheap design, cheap steel, cheap manufacturing:

    [​IMG]

    Despite knowing how badly the edges were finished I still managed to cut myself!

    [​IMG]

    Mounting the old workstation board:

    [​IMG]

    Now let's see what's come in from the egg:

    [​IMG]

    The PSU for that mATX build I did (those photos were slightly out of order), another ssd (because 7 isn't enough) and a cheapo gpu for the 4u case:

    [​IMG]

    Passive GPU is passive, crappy sas card is crappy:

    [​IMG]

    Got those straight to straight sata cables too:

    At first,[before reading] I saw those pictures and thought "what, rack mount a server inside in addition to the two computers inside that huge thing already?" And then I got to thinking... why not? :lol:
