Looks good, just needs a good wipe down. I noticed the original plexi panel got scratched a bit but its not too noticeable. Not bad for $0.50 of plexi biggrin.gif. I used some 6-32 hex screws I have (got them from mcmastercarr.com) to give a nicer touch as opposed to rivets or philips head screws. I used 1/4" for the holes that just had the original plexi panel and I used 1/2" long ones for the one's I sandwiched the smaller second plexi piece (could work with 3/8" long ones). I do have some rubber edge trim I'll use to cover up the slots where the mesh used to hold from. Btw, I did have to enlarge the holes on the metal panel door. Looks like they were at 1/8" but I bored them out a little bit more so the 6-32 screws would slide through using a 9/64" bit thumb.gif

I'll have to wait to see what pieces end up in the scraps parts bin. I could buy a full sheet for $60 or just wait for a 24x24" piece to show up. The largest one was 18x18". There were lots other larger pieces but in white and gray (non transperant). I kinda do like it so I''l stick with it for now. The rubber edge trim is a little grayish so I'm either going to spray it satin black or shine it up w/ some Armor-All.

Psu was just dropped off wheee.gif. FTW paracord came in a couple of days ago so I should be busy sleeving this weekend. Sadly, the FrozenQ res is delayed again so that's gonna be another two more weeks.

You'll wanted to see how the psu was going in biggrin.gif

Fits down to less than a millimeter. The bottom rad was pushed back as far as I could. I used a few longer screws to hold down the bottom rad as I no longer could use the bottom rad screw hole spots. I have quite a few spare screws so I was able to pull it off.

As you can see, there's enough room for the fan controller in the bottom slot. I have an angled psu cable (very hard to find in left angled) so it should avoid using the stock power cord and bending it. I don't have the hdd cages in since they are drying but if you look at the last pics I took, I mounted an extra fan below the second cage's fan. This fan will feed the psu fan. Blue tape is prevent unnecessary scraping smile.gif

Stickers are staying. I don't like stripping off the material. Could leave residue which is hard to remove. Its already black so I really don't see a need to paint it. I do have some extra blue vinyl that I may add to just for kicks. Sleeving this puppy this weekend. should keep me busy thumb.gif

Btw, I emailed Xigmatek about getting an extra psu cover a week ago. Still no reply frown.gif

My only concern would be exhausting the pws to outside of case?

The pressure created by the bottom rad will pull it up. Plus psu vents both in the front and rear of it. The fans is still pointing stock so its intaking from the front. I can always make a little diversion plate with some spare acrylic I have. I did this for my 800D build with a front mounted rad.

Added some matte vinyl sticker to help avoid any more scraping of the paint and the psu. I barely cleared the bottom rad but I added some pieces just in case smile.gif. Finished sleeving the main fixed cables on the psu (minus one 4+4 cpu cable). Just need to finish sleeving the modular cables. Still no word on the reservoir frown.gif

A little cutting using my B&D rotary tool to clear the sleeved cables. The sleeved cables did bulge the side of the psu a bit but with some heat from the heat gun I was able to softened it a bit to bend it back into shape.

She's in place. Just waiting to finalize this build smile.gif. The two cages clear the psu and there should be a bit of room to route my tube.

Front has been setup and completed. will be putting on the front panel shortly after all wire management to the front has been wrapped up.

Got the sleeve done. A few cables pulled out so I'll push them back in smile.gif
