yea that's what i did i ended up cutting a pass through hole in the back to feed the cables through. why termaltake designed it this way is beyond me i mean they sell the pedestal with a damn psu mount but no way to route the cables to the top? just seems incredibly stupid by there design team. anyway rant over other then that i like the case cable management is pretty lack luster in back but it is what it is.

Wow I attempted this a while back and fail, wish I had known
Here is what I made , it is a little rough but it needs a quick sanding and some paint

Looks pretty good to me. as you said a little fine tuning on the surface finish and I think it will look great.

Well Tt I don't think has ever been known for extreme high IQ, lol, but yes even a small removable cover would have made sense. At least they had enough sense to put the PSU at a 90 in the pedestal so I assume the radiators would still fit.

yea agreed i mean even a cutout with grommets like in the mobo tray would have been perfect. anyway build is coming along nice dude i like it.

So I was not happy with the lighting from the led strip, it gives the tubing this awful reflection so I found a channel extrusion with a white light diffuser I think it should give it a nice glow



I think It will also clean it up nicely Because it looks very messy right now

interesting. i used an NZXT HUE+ for my lighting

I just dont like direct led light has on tubing it bothers me mad.gif here is a comparison of what it looks like with and without the diffuser



Without




With diffuser



I feel like its easier on the eyes and looks very nice and uniform

Oh wow, I like that. Where did you get the channel from? I've seen other's use it too but your the first I've seen that shows a good comparison. I'm seriously thinking of borrowing this idea for my new Skylake build getting close to being done.

Here it is https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00M92IDZ6/ref=sr_ph_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1468003494&sr=sr-1&keywords=led+channel

there are a couple variants of the channel but i feel that the dome offers a better light diffusion due to distance from the led's
