Finally all done, matte black finish. Cut out the interior front panelling for the three front fans. Sprayed the interior Matt black and just needs my 3080ti back in after new thermal pads. Old as good as new

Thanks buddy!

one on my main annoyances was the fan cabling so I stuck a 1 to 5 fan splitter between the chassis fans in the bottom and front, then there is a little deep channel behind the fans where I could cable tie and tuck that cabling. The CPU cable runs under the motherboard and the audio, front panel etc come in from the back and right alongside the motherboard, took some doing but barely a cable in sight

Haha, loved the video!!

I know I’d love it up on the desk but it’s also the place I work from daily and it’s not the smallest case…I’m on a lot of video calls so I try to make it look as ‘office like as I can’ I will however take your advice and get a small table to raise it up the 18 inches thank you
