8/10 for me! I love the painted copper tubing, it turned out nice and glossy. Your custom acrylic panel/ glowing box is a cool idea for cable management, plus I haven't really seen a mod quite like it before. I especially like how you mounted the ssd at the bottom. Overall, very well done and your attention to detail is quite stunning. :)

Good work, the whit box for cable management is a good idea but it take far too much space and is "poping" out of the build since its white VS all the black stuff.

Good work after all.

thx for the comment , i really do want to use that white box as a back up , but it seems i cant , coz its really hard to do cable management in this small case , so i had to hide it inside

anyway thx for the comment for my build its white black blue build

Regarding your white PSU cover - it would be nifty if you made black diagonally cut cover panels for it to match your case front & top panel covers. To do it more easily (cheaply), just use diecut black vinyl sticker sheet. Then the ratio of black to white would be better, and the white should still "pop" a fair amount...

Love the mods, great design and much talent on display here!

still i would give you a 8/10.

I agree with strato on this idea, if you had some kind of black trimming on the white box it will add a nice look to your blk/wht/blu theme. :)

edit: I am surprised someone gave you a 5/10 ??, though they probably judged on just the pictures and didn't read the mods you put in. No matter, this is an excellent build my friend and I am sure it will only get better and better. ;)

Is it really hard to remove just the PSU cover?

I would only add some black to it - either black diagonal striping or maybe a graphic design of some other sort? You could also use some blue to match the blue in your system.

I personally would not paint the case panels white.

I dig it, but take red scotch brite to the copper pipe and wipe it in one direction with the tubing. Will give it a brushed copper - shiny look.

That would look nice, however those are his "before" shots. He painted the copper tubing black for the final mod. :}

RE: You painted the case!

Sorry, missed your updates to this rig... was off visiting family.

Now that you've posted the white painted case update, I take back my comments about not recomending that you do it!

It came out great, now the white PSU cover looks just fine and not overpowering at all.

Sweet build, my friend!
