Neat mod, man! Not too crazy about the white sleeving, but the setup looks really organized. Any LED lights?
Good job!

i like your build but one gripe is the case window. i own this case at home and i ended up buying the proper Lian Li window for it. the one that you hand built looks very roughyly done and dissapointingly stands out :T

Thanks for your comments guys.

Thanks for Positive feed back.

1. Lightinig - I am using a cold cathode behind the three 140mm fans on the front pannel. it looks very nice actually not to bright and you can see all the components perfectly in complete darkness. Oh ya all the fans have white leds built into them ( yet you dont really know where the light is coming from, makes it balanced )

2. Side Window - On the pictures it looks a bit off and sticking out, in real life it actually is not that bad. If you have a link where you bought the origional side window for this case can you share it? I dont mind checking it out. If you alos happen to know if they make a back side without any cut outs? Thanks

That window looks killer 10/10. I guess the way you mounted it better could be better but the case still looks great.

Side Window

The original I bought did have a window.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811112317

There was a few problems with the original side window.

1. The window was not even enough, seemed kind of off balance.. ( I had to have a full sized window )
2. It had the bay drives on top witch I didn’t really need or wasn’t planning on using. I have an external DVD-ROM that I use when I need to install media of the discs witch only happens once a year so.. So I had get rid of those drive bays that’s where the corsair h100 rad went in instead.
3. The rubber sticking out is actually not that bad its covering the bolts that are holding the window and if you look directly from the side it looks perfect. From an angle I agree it does look like its sticking out a bit, but Lian Li Does not make full sized windows for this case because of the cut out for the drive bays.

Here is a pick from the side with all the lights turned on and side pannel on, as someone requested earlier.



Heres how the HyperX SSD's are mounted on the back.

I voted 3/10 because:

there's no water cooling. if there's no water cooling then it's a bitch!
