    The tedious but important task of sleeving the main wiring is complete!

    The only really visible cables will be the 24-pin ATX, 8-pin CPU, 8-pin and 6-pin PCI-E. In keeping with the color scheme, the colors are yellow and black. I also used black cable combs to keep them organized.



    Here is a shot of the entire cables. The pink paper is only to identify which end is for the PSU.

    Didn't like the stock decal that comes on the rear of the Corsair HD120 fans.



    Played around with my Silhouette Cameo and came up with a better alternative. Black with a yellow Corsair logo. Every fan nows has this decal instead of that plain stock version.

    Working on getting the front fan assembly mounted this morning. It was definitely a tight fit and took some effort to get it in there!



    Still haven't mounted the CPU block on the motherboard yet. Have some cushioning on the PSU cover to protect the paint while deciding the best placement for it.

    You can see that I painted the radiator and CPU accents a yellow color to match the case and bring some color to those items.

    Alright, finally got the AIO CPU block installed. Fairly difficult to get the tubing to lay where I want it. Would rather have had it flipped over, but the tubing just would not cooperate. The black wires from the rear fan and the AIO still need to be groomed.



    Overview of case as it stands now.



    Now that the AIO is mounted, time to start getting the SSD drives ready. Here are the two Corsair Neutron Series XT drives (480GB each).


    Nice drives but that red color scheme will have to go.



    The decals removed easily enough and now that red really stands out!



    Removed the top covers (yep, voided that warranty) and now you can see what lies within these units.



    The covers are now getting a white primer coat and sun yellow coat. More updates when they are ready.

    Also received the 2TB Western Digital Black drive. Trying to decide what to do with it.

    The SSD covers are dry and look pretty good in just the plain Sun Yellow color.



    Created some decals with the Silhouette Cameo to match the theme of the case, 'Glorious PCMR'. The black vinyl looks good on the yellow cases.



    Mounted on the case and ready for use!



    With the ASUS Maximus IX Hero motherboard having only a single USB 2.0 connection, I had to get a USB hub to expand that to 3 USB 2.0 ports. This device is made by NZXT.



    The package contains the USB Hub and the appropriate cables for connection to the motherboard.



    For lighting, this build will utilize the Corsair Lighting Node Pro.

    One nice thing about the Corsair Lighting Node Pro is that it has even more control over the RGB lighting than that provided by the HD Lighting Control included with the fans and case. Since the lighting hub now goes directly to the lighting node pro, there is no need for these two components of the HD Lighting Control.



    Spent a few hours trying to do something with all of the typical wires that always end up behind the motherboard. Normally not too difficult a task when the side panel is solid, but with a glass side panel it becomes a major undertaking.

    Still need to groom a few cables, but the majority are in place and tied down.



    Here is a shot of the interior of the case.
