    Sorry for confusion, I had a duplicate picture and the stupid server wouldn't let me delete it so I had to delete the posting and start all over, so no, I didn't do it just to reset my rating.

    I was so pleased with how my first Asus ROG themed build "Night Fire" based upon my beloved Antec mini P-180 I decided to do another with my new HAF XB. Its been real nice change after years and several builds with blue coloring and LED's over and over. This isn't as trick or custom as those guys with real talent along with supplies and tools to make some really awesome cases, but I'm proud with what I accomplished with my own case modding skills and living in a town house with no garage.

    I too started working with a HAF XB case and did it in my office but had lots of practice with other cases. I have used lexan in my modifications with carbon fiber covering, and aluminum trim using the same carbon fiber covering on it. This has done well for me and keeps the case quite and cool with virtual no obstructions for air flow. I do like your work though thank you for sharing.


    You might look at your cable management a little there are ways of routing it under the mother board mounting so it will look even smoother.

    Sweet ass job with your XB, the carbon fiber covers are ingenious touch! I'm pretty happy with wiring as is for my needs.
