  2. Im interested in your outcome on this mainly on any oddities you may have encountered with installing into this case and also what cable extensions you may have had to use if you did back panel cable management.
    Im about to do a very similar build and have ebrything mapped out in my head with how it is to install except the question of what cables may need extensions when using the back panel.
  3. But all your choices look solid with the exception of maybe dropping some green LEDs or cathodes into the case. I figure the box and hardware is so pretty that you might aswell make it visable. Heres what im about to start purchasing in a couple weeks.
