I was going to recommend a cover, but then i though it would look dull too. That one looks insanely good tho thumb.gif

OK, so I've been experimenting (with varied success)

I believe I know how to bend the Acrylic sheet for a possible PSU shroud, and I've had an initial attempt at cutting the ROG logo out of a piece of scrap from my back plate:



I drew the logo freehand with a sharpie. OK, it's not a good representation, but it will do for a trial.



cut it freehand with a dremel. I also made quite a few scratches on the top surface. After a while I hit on a technique to prevent that.



then I filed it, then sanded it with 150 grit, 400 grit and 600 grit. Still some imperfections, but more sanding will fix that. Making it bigger will made the sanding easier.

Yet another piece complete.

Working with the acrylic isn't exactly hard, it's just time consuming:



You make it the size you measured - but it doesn't fit:



So you have to file and sand and file some more:

Just had a crack at a prototype PSU cover with an off cut of smoked plexiglass.

I can't say I'm happy with it.



Still, I learned a little more. I'll get another sheet of black to try again. The bend was pretty easy.

On the upside, this arrived from modsticker.com today:

Great work so far. The PSU cover is a good idea since your cables are only extensions and the exposed standard cable at the PSU ruins the aesthetics. I look forward to seeing how that cover turns out...and the rest of the build of course!

Maybe you could try making it as long as the case is and not just to cover the cables? It might look nicer that way and if it doesnt you can just cut it shorter. Also the sticker was a good idea

You've given me an idea.wink.gif

It'll take me a week or so to make it happen.biggrin.gif

Love that acrylic backplate! Looks really pretty! Is the motherboard mounted right onto it, or does it go just under the board up to the standoffs?
