Apparently Transparent

My previous build after nearly nine years of use had finally kicked the bucket, so this one was a quick build to replace it. The 9900k was the only thing I could think of that could outperform my old X5650, while also being in stock.

I cut out some sheets of aluminum and painted them to work as a basement for the case because normally the Level 20 VT is just open and leaves everything exposed. I was tempted to just keep them plain because the brush aluminum looked pretty good, but I dented and scratched them up too much. First time working with metal like that. Also added RGB strips because who doesn't love a good RGB.
