Just a remark, but a PC Power SILENCER mk III would be pretty cool in the case.

Photo's added. Can a mod please move this to the Case mod log section? I'll be doing mods to the Switch, so I feel this is in the wrong section.

Parts look great. thumb.gif
Looking forward to seeing the sleeve job on the PSU.
I have the same power supply but the 1000W version and would love to sleeve mine in a gray/titanium combo.

Yeah, the sleeving is going to be a *****. Need to get everything ordered, including Lustr0's sleeving tool.
