So today i received another package! biggrin.gif It's my led strips, psu cover & carbon fiber wrap, I will be getting sleeved extensions soon smile.gif

My psu cover and carbon wrap! The psu cover is made from 5mm thick matte black plastic and then carbon wrapped



The led strips i got are white and as you can see you get some zip-ties with the led strips aswell as some sticky pads to help with cable management




So let's get this build going! I started disassembling my PC



Did some modding to the front panel and i removed the cooler master badge tongue.gif





And i also did the same mod to the roof panel aswell





I started carbon wrapping the internals of my case biggrin.gif



Installed the fans onto the psu cover, I also carbon wrapped the back of the fans smile.gif



Testing the psu cover in the case tongue.gif



Testing the led strips smile.gif



Put my pc all back together! Look's alot better i just need some sleeved extensions now biggrin.gif



All up and running again! Look's beautiful! tonguesmiley.gif









I took a picture of how the psu cover is being supported but it isn't a very good picture, I made some brackets from 1.2MM Thick aluminium in a L shape to help hold up the psu cover smile.gif




Please tell me what you think! Any questions please send me a pm or comment below biggrin.gif

Agreed, lookin very good. Have you thought about showcasing the ssd's, maybe on the psu cover or on the 5.25 drive bays, just an idea.
