The front of the case has been redone with the ROG logo. The acrylic piece behind the front have been modded to fit two LED strips that lights up the entire front panel when turned on.
Both right and left side panel has been laser engraved, to etch away the black paint, leaving bare aluminium.
The aluminium on the panels matches up nicely with the extruded profiles.
Rear panel is the only outer panel that has been left stock.

Top panel has the strix logo, as the graphic cards used are 980 ti strix´s

I opted to go for the BeQuiet dark rock TF cpu cooler, and simply removed the top fan. Really like the looks of these "laid down" coolers compared to regular tower coolers!
Since the graphic cards are quite heavy, I made a piece of acrylic that also works as a cable comb. This acrylic piece holds up the cards, so they do not damage the PCI ports on the motherboard during transportation.
Also, look at that laser engraved PSU
Definitly won´t be the last time I do that.
Sleeving on the graphic cards. These cards are really huge. I am glad I do not have to sleeve for some of the cards that has 3x8 pin power connectors. I think 2 per card is MORE than enough:D
To keep the graphic card holder in place, this little aluminium block was made. It was milled out, and then I finished it off with wet sandpaper, and manually chamfered the edges.
This mounts to the bottom of the case, so the cards can travel neither up or down.
Top mounted LED strip, and acrylic duct for the fans.
As mentioned before, the front has two LED strips inserted into it. The power for these are routed out of the black cover piece.
Another shot of the top LED strip.
The 8 pin cable for the motherboard.
And the OS drive.
Last but not least, the top fan grill. This covers up the plastic parts of tthe fans that holds the fan motor in place.
All in all a nifty little gamer:D
Thanks to ASUS and Corsair for their help with this build! If you missed it at the ASUS stand at I55, it will be at EGX also!
