Here you can see the build up close and see the shroud that I made. I added my gamertag to it to make my build more personal.
I like the contrast of the RGB with the black components. However I went with white cablomod cables since they reflect the RGB light nicely
The LL140 fans from corsair are set to rainbow wave mode (multifan)
The full sideview of the upgraded build
I really like how the vertical GPU turned out
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.
edit: I have upgraded the GPU to a RTX 2070, vertical mounted it and made some more changes which you can see in the "updates section"
upgraded the GPU, remade the cutsom PSU shroud with gamertag and switched the AIO location
The original letters were hand cut and placed on the plexiglass which I bent and painted myself but they were a bit crooked. I used a vinyl cutter to redo that panel.
Since this case isn't ideal for watercooling I was forced to put the radiator up front. The airflow up top was awful and it resulted in 70+ degrees in the summer. Now that it is upfront it also has only one pulling fan but that shouldn't be a problem since it has two push fans. The second pulling fan would interfere with the hard drive cages.
I also really wanted a vertically mounted GPU and also needed more horsepower to game in 4k. So I upgraded my GTX 1070 to an RTX 2070 super. The case itself doesn't have a vertical mounting system so I used a kit from cooler master to make it so. However you couldn't plug in any cables since the case has dividers between the PCIE slots. I used a dremmel to remove the top 4 of these dividers which allowed for 2 display-ports and 1 HDMI to be plugged in. In order to make the right side look a lot cleaner I bought the hard drive plastic covers from Be Quiet. I removed the capture card since that is being transferred to a dedicated second PC (see my project scorpio build) I added another hard drive for long term storage of files. This was supposed to go into my project scorpio build however since the space in that case is less open and usable it didn't fit.
