Nah, those renders look awesome! I have been planning on doing a similar scratch build last year but I kinda wanted to fit in at least 1 240mm rad inside. I have the sketches that I made but I just never had time to do it. :)

 Do you have any color schemes in mind for this?

Currently just clear is the color of choice.

However I may get a friend to make some art to put on the side which will glow like fiber optic with the LEDs.

Oh wow! That's a neat idea there!

Note: The test shows full speed. With a GPU the PSU will peak at 60% load so does not require full fan speed.

RGB LED Controller is coming along nicely.

 
 
GUI Will be completed another time. Will control via serial terminal for now.

Received some quotes. Awaiting on a few more so I can find the best deal for getting the material machined.

Won't be able to complete the Windows software for controlling the RGB LEDs in time as I must learn how to program Visual C#. :P

 

The programming for the controller itself is done and can be easily enough controlled through a PuTTY terminal by sending commands such as "255,0,255:". (This will make purple. "R,G,B:".
