I think the 5,25" logo should be centered, not in the lower right corner.
Atleast bottom-centre

I don't know, this looks much better for me. Just a personal taste

Nice build man! Painting the front mesh is probably the easiest still most good-looking mod that can be done to a case.

To me (again, personal taste), it could be either centered or in the corner, but I'd make the 5.25" logo a tad smaller.

If you leave the Corsair logo on the front in place (i.e. bottom center) then I'd also center the pirate logo and make it of similar width. If you take out the Corsair logo, see my first paragraph.

Regardless, love the plexi-LED logo idea!

I can't make 5.25 logo any smaller, even in this size it will be pretty hard to make it. I will cut it with laser, so there won't remain much plastic between holes.
I'll leave it this way for now. It's not a problem to make a new piece if this is not good

Hi my dear companions
It's been awhile since my last update... I was too busy with my stupid job, wife, kid and everything else. Hope you won't mind
But finally i found some time for my project and now i'm back on business

So, let us begin...

Backplate is done and mounted for now. I'm still waiting for cool white LED strips and wire i have ordered to arrive. They should be here in a few days.
I'm gonna throw strips between backplate and pcb. I think that should look much better then it is right now. Considering that letter cuts for themselves are really narrow, light that will break from inside out should allow signature ''The White Pirate'' to be seen much better and clearer.
Otherwise, backplate is mounted in the simplest way, double-sided sticky tape.







''Box'' for 240 mm rad is also solved. It also serves to completely hide the 5.25 cage. I still need to paint it. I'm thinking for some kind of black and white combination. I would not go on any further with details, I want a kind of clean look inside.

Alucobond cut to size, template taped ...


...and ready for some drilling




Cutting out 120 mm holes




Not so bad for a 2 pounds tool



Other side and a cut for bending at 90°



And this is how it looks in the end





Assembled inside the chassis








These screws are here just temporarily, they will be replaced with black and shorter ones



Piece of plexiglass i'm gonna use to cover other side of 5.25 bay is also done.



This is how it should look



That's all for today folks. Tomorrow i continue with my job so you can expect new update in a 2-3 days.
Hope you like it so far. Cheers
