Yeah I know, when the shipping is more than the part it's a hard pill to swallow.
Bartacus's option looks viable though. Hope you find a solution dude.

Thanks mate, yeah, Bartacus's option is worth a good look, also Warchild suggested some red acrylic behind the writing I have cut out on the side panel which I like.
So just need to buy some

Thanks Excalabur
I just need to do a little bit of finishing off and I'm done.


One thing I forgot to mention was the temperatures I now have.
The CPU is around 2 or 3 degrees cooler, that says alot for the Corsair H100 that I had installed previously, although I did have it with 4 fans in a push/pull configuration.
The GPU's are just so much cooler I have to pinch myself sometimes to make sure I'm not dreaming.
I didn't think it possible to be running at ambient, but that is what I have at idle!

Gaming which used to see 77° C on the hottest GPU is now running at mid to high 40's.
and of course, it's virtually silent

I am using Real Temp GT 3.70 software to give me the temperature, could it be lying to me?
MSI Afterburner gives me the same reading.
