Made some time free to give a little update.

Still got a lot to do this weekend to be able to update from my main pc :)

I knew i could get it smaller ! :P

First leds are working.

Also some cables ready for under the mainboard tray.

P1060825%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

Further on with the pump-tray and got the reservoir hanging again.

P1060829%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

Used the same anti vibration rubber under my HDD's and tray as i use for my glass.

I really love this stuff.

P1060831%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

Guess cable management will come later, more and more cables every day :)

P1060837%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

Also a small uv led stroke for the right side fans.

P1060843%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

Now also leds in the pumptops.

I like it more then the regular black ones i had.

This photo is with UV leds in it, but thats WAY too purple.

But somehow i cant show it in photo's

P1060845%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

So i tried blue leds after that, and i liked it :)

Yeah i've seen it before, i was thinking about plexi beneath my trays with leds behind it.

But maybe this is a good solution too.

Hey, good job on finally getting it finished! (for now). I know you just got a new mouse, but I would like to recommend the Logitech Performance MX. It will work on your glass/ acrylic with out the mousepad. It will even work on a mirror, pfff nearly everything. Also I noticed to have the Logitech Illuminated Keyboard, why not go ahead and get their wireless illuminated one? My fiance uses it and the MX, as her setup is next to our bed instead of on a desk. The wireless keyboard can be stored vertically and uses the same connector as the mouse to recharge the batteries (micro usb). The batteries do last quite awhile before getting low, here they only get charged maybe once a month, or every other month.

They also use the same receiver, so you only need one and use the unifying software.
