btw, i know its personal preference. But the carbon vinyl covering on your SSD and HDD does quite fit in your rig. I think you would make it look much better using matt black. As it is now, it stands out a little too much.
The powerlink isn't compatible with cables that have the little tabs facing the other way sadly.

Good call on the vinyl, I'll see if some matte black vinyl is for sale anywhere so it will look more stealthy compared to what it is now

Well the satin black paint was ordered a few days ago but won't be with me until Tuesday apparently, The Cablemod cable combs should be next Friday, Extra fine grit sandpaper is ready to go and now I'm looking into some braided PWM fan extensions and braided internal USB cables.

My original idea was to get a 40mm white LED fan and run it on the lowest volts possible just for a bit of bling but seeing as no one makes them I'll be modding the plate that covers the fan space to remove the X99 branding so it's just blank and then spray it satin black along with the rest of the armor.

Those tiny fans are super cute. But like other cute things they're completely impractical.

This one only spins at around 1000RPM, It's whisper quiet, I may or may not remove it, Not sure yet.
