The 460 is a lot more compact so with dual GPU's cabling was a real PITA. I'll organise some shorter cables in due course.

As I've said elsewhere here I really liked the Fractal Define C and that would have been the more sensible choice however this one just really appealed to me. I love the glass and the backlight glow you get from the fans.

Pictures - Glass is a pain to photograph, hence mostly no window. The GPU sag looks worse in the photos than in real life.

Can't wait to see the build - did you end up buying from the States or use the local retailer?

Local if i brought it from directly from CaseLabs it was going to cost me over $1100.00 shipping was going to be like $200.00USD and i thought nope, I had to settle for Black but i wanted Gun Metal Grey but the retailer here said no only in black.....Sigh.

I may take me another 12 months or so to complete the next build cause i will need to find decent custom cables with out breaking the bank i don't want to pay like $300.00 for cables.

No one does pre make cables like CableMod in the colour that i want.

45 for a set of f****** grips.

All I wanted was a set of original style Mushrooms. But not the fake vinyl like ones that make your hands sweat and then give you blisters because they are too hard. Seems they are incredibly hard to get hold of now, so 45 it was. That is now the highest amount of money I have ever paid for grips. I could have gotten some Longneck but the mushroom bit isn't as deep or as comfy.

And a set of suitable shoes.

That's a hell of a lot. I would have gone with any of the following.

The problem is it's an 800 bike. It's done in a few colours, none are black. I could have gotten something for about 10 but I thought sod it.

It's all retro too with all retro parts so putting on new school stuff is kinda blasphemy.

Bugger, forgot the seat ! the bike comes with a repop Kashimax but there were some things better left in the 80s tbh. Like the grips the bike comes with, they're horrible. I can't be sitting on a plastic seat man. So I got this.
