This will be my third attempt at what I think is one of the most awesomest cases ever.

First was way back when w/ an 830.

Then a few years later w/ an 832.

This 'new' 830 when I got it.

Started sanding down some of the plastic.

Had to tap a few new screw holes as Asus seems to use their own special layout. But if fits well enough.

And a few other pics. The Hyper212+'s are going to be used for testing and fitting purposes. The CPUs will of course be watercooled.

Test fitting. Literally no room for cable management, which obviously I expected.

So I cut the few holes I needed. May need one or two more yet but not for a while.

One thing I can say is the quality of cases back then is so much higher than now. The motherboard tray is 2.5mm thick aluminum. Exterior panels were 3.0mm thick. Then compare against my PC-A77F Lian Li which uses 1.5mm all the way around.

And a few pics of shavings because they look cool.
