It's nearly finished, actually just dropped an update. I have some work to do on the PSU shroud yet, as it ended up a little out of whack when I bent it, but that and mounting the SSD is really all that is left.

I like the paper towel - makes me think a white false floor would look the goods and compliment the motherboard (unless I saw that on another Fractal competition rig?) It would also cover up those fan vents in the floor. If it's too much white then a stealth black floor would go well with the space in the front behind your res.

Only other comments are to consider De-stickering the top of the PSU or turn it up the other way.

Overall the build looks really good!

Tom has one in the GPU test rig

I agree with TPC it's stunning fella, huge props to you for completing the loop.

The boys are right IMHO - get that PSU turned over

Looking good dude. As Wraith said, well done for finishing the loop and not giving in, many props for your determination!
And, also as Tom said, turn the PSU over. Looks much cleaner without the sticker showing, I had the same issue with my RM850i in my build.

it's a of a pain in the a$$ to do with the loop done, I'm thinking of putting a psu shroud

i would like to use the OC3D logo somewhere but want to run it by you first.

A psu shroud would do the trick, but I almost feel at this stage in the build it would be more work than it's worth. Especially since you have tubing that would run though it in the center.

It's looking really sweet, the balance of white, black and red is great. I also think that the PSU would look better turned over. Some form of cover for the floor, an acrylic plate or just nice sound dampening foam would really complete it. Personally I think that matt black would look best so the cables and fittings stand out against it. A shroud wouldn't be that great and ending it half way along the case would be really awkward, especially with such a nice PSU and cables.

In the last picture it looks really incomplete with the LED's directly visible. I'm presuming the side panel covers them up but it's still great to see so much of the build. A side panel with a tiny frame and no glass would set it off for final pictures as either with or without the stock one in place it's a little compromised IMO.
