To be honest, the insides look a bit bare without any water cooling. Have you thought of filling in that area or is it there for air flow purposes?
Yes, I thought of using the modders mesh from MNPCtech, and had something worked out with Bill Owen on just having him actually paint the front grill for me on one of his prefabricated Define S front panels, but decided I'd rather do it myself and use something not seen on anybody elses mod, so that's why I used the Union Jack perforated metal up there. I think I paid 18.00 for a 12" x 24" sheet at Home Depot.
Like I said in my post, that bare area where a reservoir is supposed to be mounted is going to get covered with something. Not sure what yet. Possibly some painted diamond plate or other sheet material, and then an NZXT Grid v2 and NZXT Hue+ are getting mounted there. If I end up building a custom loop for it later then I'll move those to the bottom in front of the PSU or around back maybe.
