The "Floating Motherboard Effect"!

I really found the clear panel on spacers to be a unique touch. I think a case with something like that done on both sides would be very interesting, perhaps with a thin strip of modder's mesh covering the air gap for some air filtration.

You, sir - have given me a great idea!

Superb build...

It kind of defeats the purpose of hiding your cables using a door with a window on the other side of the case. I also just noticed.. but why did you run your power supply cables under your CPU back plate? Also, you should have cut the ends of the zip ties.

I voted 6/10. :toast: All in all it's a nice job. I'm just wondering why you done those things.

Well for reason to show the cable management was that ,the stock CM 430 doesn't have any space so by showing the cable management i'm able to show what i have done in this mod.

umm its kinda tricky, backplate would press your cables since it holds not only the heatsink but the weight of heatsink too
im afraid in long term would affect it
