Schwarz Nickel in German means black nickel, two primary colors for the build. I fell in love with the Compact Splash case early on, however, I wasn't able to purchase round 1 of the case. I'm glad I wasn't because the second round is absolutely beautiful! I have big plans for this case, hope it will all work out! My case is #26.

Final Pictures

Well guys, here they are, the final pictures! Boy was this a fun build to do though. Very pleased with the final product. There are a few things I want to upgrade/change but I need a monitor first. Looking to get the 25" 1440p Dell. Just need to save about another $250.

Anyways, on to the pictures. I'll let them do the talking!

Here is the case, not an update. The pictures are from She Loved E when I purchased my case. Didn't get a chance to take any pictures over break. *sigh*
