Fractal Design Focus G - Mystic Red



If you wonder why it looks so blurry, it's because I filmed it with the protective side film still on. I wanted to let him peel that back for himself.
The Focus G is a pretty nice case to work with if you've done tons of builds. Most all the videos on it say you have to remove the hard drive cage to add a bottom fan. Not true, the hard drive cage can be re-positioned to the front, gaining some much needed breathing room, so I placed a Noctua F12 on the bottom for added intake. I hacked the front bezel by taking all the hold down tabs, pulling them back, removing the filter, then re-assemble with the now free filter positioned on the inside. This is a temp fix till I get him some magnetic ones that will allow the LL120's to shine brighter through the front. Wire management was kind of UGH but do-able with patience and an abundance of tie straps. Plenty of upgrade options for later on, though I'd start beefier on the power supply for good measure.
