So get a case-labs case and go hard line. I already have the rad outside the case so I am not going to go with internal rads at this point. I am not sure what else I could do.
I thought about it but I am not sure what the point would be. The larger case does me no good since the rad is outside the case.
Individually braided cables, tasteful lighting - don't oversaturate in a single color that overpowers the rest of the system's colors, hide unwanted cable management, build with a color theme in mind etc.
There's a lot of things you can do to make it look better without spending a lot of money
Just to show what I mean about lighting, I went with a "clean" theme of stainless, black and white with a splash of ROG red, distilled water and white light. At night, the lighting is very subtle too. This picture is a little overexposed but you get the idea.
Heck, you don't even make soft tubing look good if you route it in a nice way. This was my system back in 2012.Edited by Syan48306 - 3/24/16 at 4:31pm
