Absolutely stunning board love the detail and it's perfect for my build.

I'm really loving cablemods new modmesh cables personally I find nylon braid easier to work with and more pleasant to look at. Thanks again Tom for my cablemod voucher

The windowed back panel looks nice but you really have to be on your A game to make sure it doesn't look crap. I'm pretty happy with my attempt thou :)

White led ML pro fans with red corners, doesn't get better than that I hate coloured fans white light makes a system look so much cleaner in my opinion

Getting there but have hit a snag, the silicone insert I bought does not fit my tubing so I've had to order another so have to wait to do the tubing :/

Finished and I love it best case I have ever built in it looks fantastic. I'm thinking about adding some rgb lighting inside the back to highlight the cabkes and routing and the front just to light up the ssd and PSU as they are difficult to see.

Please don't!

The subtle look it has now is perfect. Simple is more. If you start throwing in RGB colouring it will ruin the contrast of the look as a whole. Personally, I don't look for things to stand out. I love the fact that SSD and PSU are hidden. At the end of the day, the most eye popping features are the tubing, res and waterblocks and you got them nailed. There is no need to add more lighting.
