Liquid Glass!

Build Description

I wanted to design and build a full open case with thick double 1/2 acrylic sheets having the ability to access all the components easily. Also have all the radiator RGB lighting show through the acrylic while protecting the fans and moving parts. Polished hex bolts secure the frame.

The Corsair SF750 mini PSU was perfect for this build a I needed a super small PSU to both accomodate the GPU requirements as well as hide in the back with the wiring minimal.

The GPU is supported on the bottom with a custom 3D printed frame that acts as both a case stand where the acrylic locks in as well as the horizontal mount for the GPU and eliminates all GPU sag.

Favorite Feature

The transparent glass look of the design and the small footprint of the entire chassis. Top handle for easy mobility!
