Have an Elysium myself, and it is indeed rather massive.

Quick question: What are you going to put inside that case to make it look not so empty
anymore? Also, the PSU cable cover thingy looks nice.

Have you wrapped the m/b tray? I like the contrast.

yes I had the wrap laying about and the black MB on black looked lost so gave it a try

little update been making some noise and mess today

can you tell what it is yet

wanted to mount rad without any case cutting if possible

slots over the tabs so no bending or cutting them off and bolt down using HDD screw holes

fits just nice only fitting a 240 rad but cut for 480 hoping to upgrade later

80mm rad in push/pull comes flush with rear of the bay what more can I ask for
before anyone say's thats not the fans I'll be using just setup one's

got top rad fitted 45mm in push/pull and loads of room left
thats today done see what tomorrow bring's

little update not much done today

got fans mounted and all the hole lined up

fitted some led strip to MB side of GPU waterblock and started to throw some hose at it to work out what looks right

not sure what to do down here to just stand pump on bottom with res above also thought about boxing it in level with top of PSU to hide pump and cabling what you all think I'm leaning towards boxing in but the bottom fan air flow concern's me
