Rainbow shadow

I went with a mostly black build since all my hardware is black (consoles, TV, monitor ect). I also really like the looks of brushed aluminium so I chose a case as well as peripherals that have a lot of that as well.
I made some custom panels since I wasn't fully happy about the looks yet. I made a custom power supply shroud since the original dark base pro 900 case didn't come with one (V2 that is out now has one though). I used a heatgun to bend the acrylic and I used regular tape and a knife to cut out the letters. Then I used spray paint to paint the acrylic black. The backside of the panel was sanded down so you can't see the LED strip behind it. The LED strip is placed on there with double sided tape. I also made another acrylic panel to hide the open hard drive slot since there is a lot of wiring in the back for the total of 2 meters of RGB led strips that I placed inside the edges of the case.
Some noticeable hardware that isn't listed is my multicard readed and my 4k60 pro capture card. I tend to use this PC for gaming but I also use it for making video's of console gameplay hence the capture card and the need for card readers to insert SD cards from my camera.
