I cant say that the added bottom the way it sits looks like it goes with the rest of the case...I think you may want to rethink cutting a rectangle in a trapezoid shape. There are no rectangles on the case at all. If you planned something out already disregard but its very awkward looking. I think something more complex or even a mess grate of some sort...maybe vents like on the top of the case?! Good luck its coming along nicely.

Update!!!

Hi Y'all,

I had a nice update in mind about the internal and the beautiful water blocks. Unfortunately GLS did it again... destroyed my package and send it back to Slovenie.... Thanks again GLS!

So this time only an update about the internal parts.

First I have some RAM coolers mounted on the Dell RAMs

DSC09515.jpg

DSC09521.jpg

I also changed the CPU cooler.

Before:

DSC09071.jpg

Shorten the tubes, turn the cover, turn the alien and re-route the cable

DSC09539.jpg

DSC09540.jpg

Internal: First cut and bent a custom cover

DSC09469.jpg

What hides the 5.25 bay

DSC09589.jpg

Made it black

DSC09587.jpg

Placed it

DSC09590.jpg

DSC09591.jpg

Next cut a piece of green acrylic to the right size with two small pieces for mounting the midplate and side cover

DSC09567.jpg

DSC09570.jpg

DSC09572.jpg

DSC09575.jpg

Which will be like this

DSC09592.jpg

The midplate. Later on there will be holes in it and a vinyl cover with the brand names which will be illuminated from below

DSC09579.jpg

DSC09583.jpg

DSC09594.jpg

DSC09597.jpg

The side cover is also made ​​of aluminum with recess for the power for the side panel

DSC09576.jpg

DSC09598.jpg

DSC09599.jpg

DSC09600.jpg

DSC09504.jpg

And last... made a cover next to the motherboard tray,which will hide all cables

DSC09476.jpg

DSC09584.jpg

DSC09609.jpg

DSC09485.jpg

DSC09512.jpg

DSC09604.jpg

DSC09607.jpg

Next week after the waterblocks are in, the case will go to the coater and turns completely black.
