Place the Motherboard , fans, HDD, and Power Supply on the Plexiglas - figure out how you would want everything to be placed.

Make sure to think ahead, maybe in the future you would want to add an additional HDD , or and additional Cooling FAN.





Step 5: Create an opening for the rear bracket of the Mother Board and PSU

Each motherboard comes with this Aluminum bracket 

Moreover i had to cut the rear Plexiglas to match the Power Supply opening

It is very easy to break the Plexiglas , so be careful  when you cut it, especially when you cut one piece of Plexiglas multiple times ( in multiple places).

Nicely done. Though, I'm curious to know how well is heat controlled. Cheers!

Thanks!

As far as i saw , there is no heat at all inside the case.

I inserted a Thermometer and check the Temp , it was about 30 or so ...

regular temp ..

Also , the Plexiglas is very good with in coping with the heat
