    Thanks for the speedy reply! I guess I'll go do my PSU once I've done some more research. :D

    Ive only ever used the remote desktop once maybe twice and didnt see a need for it so I left it alone.

    I have taken the case apart and its getting sanded and filed tonight in preparation for paint.

    With the help of the lovely wife I have decided on a oiled bronze color for the case. Ill take some pictures tonight of the panel I did yesterday, I think it came out great!

    Im hoping to get the rest of the case sanded and filed tonight and get the first and second coat of paint, although as any parent will tell you plans can change at will.

    Keep looking for the next update with the whole case painted!

    Really like this build, I'm planning an ITX build at the moment so good to have a look at some little stuff! Looking forward to seeing it painted.

    Thanks guys!
    I can tell you that getting the wires in there and where they need to be was a little of a PITA because of my large hands.
    I cant stress enough how small this is. Ill see if I can take some reference pics tonight so you can get the scale of the thing. Its just so tiny!

    Congrats, turned out a really awesome build!
    Yet, maybe smoked plexiglass might look a tiny bit better? Would fit the dark colour of the case.
    Just an idea.

    Funny you should say that, my wife said the same thing!
    Maybe later but for now the clear is looking good enough. It looks even cooler when the blue lights from the PSU are on.

    Sorry I didnt get pics last night guys, I kinda got distracted by Bioshock Infinite!

    Looks great, very nice finish on that aluminium anyway.

    +1 for Smoked Plexi.

    Well bad news. Looks like the Rosewill PSU gave up the ghost. It was running fine then kaput.

    I checked the board and all my mods were fine. Im guessing it was just its time. Ive had that PSU for quite some time.

    So for the foreseeable future this mod is on hold. I do not have funds for another PSU at this point.
    Needless to say it was a very upsetting day...

    Thanks for sticking with me so far though guys, I really appreciate it!
