    To be honest, I didn't like the first version at first sight, but the second, the evolved version will be very nice work!:thumb:

    Update- I glued PSU holder-now it is a black and transparent version and fits nicely with case color scheme.

    Design and holes of PSU bracket are changed a bit.

    Gluing the part in its place.

    Nice project, I have some nylon spacers (8mm) which would be much kinder to your plexi than those bolts, I used them on deep thought ....If you like I could send some through if it'll help with your build
    PM me if you're interested

    A pic of how I'd used them

    No worries Pranja, just noticed the unjust 3 star rating, voted for 5 stars to bump it up

    Just a heads up: I used hot glue long ago in aquarium related stuff. It's not very good at sealing water. The seal will break with a little pressure/thermal expansion/etc..

    Update faster.:D Please.:D

    Don't worry-I used teflon tape for sealing water. Hot glue is only used to keep everything in place. :dremel:

    I wish I could update faster-but it is not up to me. Sorry. :(
