Darklight

While this is not perfect, it is the build that I have wanted to do for a while now! This was my first time ever attempting hardlines, and some mistakes were made (messed up a few times and ordered way too much tubing, lol!), but it went pretty well! I am very pleased with the end result, but we shall see if I do a bit more with the case/frame...I tried to to get/find 24+8 bridged aluminum cable combs (black) for the motherboard and EPS power, but, alas, it was not to be. I ultimately settled on getting some more 24-pin combs and using 8-pin combs to join the EPS power to the underside of the 24-pin cable for part of the run. This cleaned things up substantially! Can't say that the end result is precisely what I had originally envisioned, but I am very pleased with it, so, yeah!

On the name: While the name sounds kind of cool, there really wasn't much creativity that went into it. I figured that the Antec Striker is black and white, and the components I was adding were black, white, or chromed (nickel-plated heatsinks and accents on the fittings), so the result is both that it is dark/black and light (white, chrome, and RGB). Ergo, "Darklight"!
