Unpacking the Banchetto 101 and putting it together.





Some of the hardware..



So far excellent quality on the parts. Just have to be careful with the acrylic since it can scratch very easily.



All parts laid out.

Thanks.

Here are some shots of different angles of the Banchetto. As you can see by the picture you can change the configuration of the power supply to the back of the case or the front. I decided power supply goes on the front.



On the right side you can now see how the bracket for the PSU can be changed around.

I still don't understand why people posts such huge pictures yet they have crappy quality ¬¬

Next time try to resize them mate, and if you want to show them in high res just add the link without entering the picture itself.

On the build itself: I love the Banchetto. I may buy one some day, I just love the way it looks...

I will redo the pics on the first post to fix the size and quality. From the second post I suppose you are satisfied with the quality and size
