Yeah it's between 100 - 150 easy. All of those bitspower fittings and rotary's weigh a ton!

My friend who made the EK plate for me cut that measured piece for th 5.25 bays, it's cut from aluminum. I then primed and painted it.

They really cost a lot to be honest, but the bitspower brand is worth it. Look how much is going on in the build with the different rotary's and fittings - and not a single leak! The C47 push fittings for the acrylic are around $5 a piece, but all of the 45 and 90 degree rotary's are between $12-$20 a piece, not to mention all of the dozens and dozens of other random fittings. I'll tally it all up at some point.

Everything is Bitspower, all acrylic fittings are the aforementioned C47 fittings (DO NOT USE C48 fittings), then everything else there's really too much to list - basically just go to frozencpu or performance pc's, go to the Bitspower section for extenders, rotary's and angle fittings start buying everything, empty your wallet completely and don't tell your wife/gf
Thanks for everyones kind words, I really put a lot of work into this build and hearing everybody's feedback has made it so worth it. I'll take more pics soon as well, I took all of those pics outside yesterday and it started to rain before I could finish, I'll get more pics on a nice sunny day
