    dont laugh at my temp feet !!! the real ones will get installed next time i get home :D

    1st thing to do was the easiest thing, install my front panel fan filter behind the fans

    I then installed the SSD and HDD, no photos as they cant be seen from outside anyways.
    next was to slap in the PSU, ......I am not liking the single braided cables, they are a real pain in the ass due to stiffness, but anyhoot, what can i do.

    next up was to lay down the motherboard tray with the mobo in it, and connect the 24 and 8 pins

    was unable to get windows installed tonight, was having troubles with my external br driver, may need to figure out a different approach to that one.

    anyhoot, will have more photos of this finished case mod when I return in about 2 weeks, will also try and get some benchmarks in if possible.

    enjoy!

    Thinking of swapping out top window with the unused transparent amber window I have, the more I look at the etched window, the more I don't like the way I can't really see through it.

    As far as hardware and stuff, everything is installed and working like a charm, it's good to know no RMA's are needed that slow things down.

    Things left to to:

    Install the custom feet by FannBlade (arrived)
    Install backplate on Titan (arrived)
    Some minor cable management
    Some finishing touches on side panels: may need to bolt the layers together as my different adhesives keep failing to hold the bond.
    Take it to the local HD shop and give them the finger ..I.

    Return home on the first or second next month, will update then with any progress.
