Nebula

This is the third revision of my second pc build, Nebula. It's used for graphic design, digital art, and gaming. The front panel mod is just two layers of laser-cut acrylic. I sleeved the cables myself, it took me two days and my hands were killing me but that's probably the component I'm most proud of because I put so much work into them. The case also has a very subtle silver sparkle paint + splatter that's hard to photograph. That being said even in person it almost looks like the stock anodizing color until you get close. The biggest difference it makes is that the side vents are now sparkle silver and match the panel instead of the black plastic finish that's stock. The Dualshock 4 controller sits in a controller hangar I made myself mounted to the front panel of the case. The secondary keyboard (Logitech k400) is used from my bed, the way my room is set up I can swing my monitor (which is mounted on an arm) around and browse/ play games from my bed. (See pictures). (My mouse is set to fade between orange and purple which is why it's different in different pictures).

Planning to cram a full custom loop in here in the future, if anyone has any parts suggestions or other helpful info I'd love to hear your ideas! Clearances will obviously be an issue so if you know components that fit will fit in this case let me know!
