Default Wow, I don't know how this happened...


The case with stock cable management holes.


The tools I used. No dremel needed.


My "honeycomb" outline. Came out just a tad uneven.


Black heavy duty electrical tape, so the PSU doesn't get scratched up.


There it is with it mounted on the bottom.

I would definitely say I am impressed. My cable management is not the greatest. I just tuck it all behind an unused 5.25" drive bay. Does that fan get enough air from the bottom? I would think because it should be an intake that it would not cool as effectively.

It's actually doing the same as before. I put some blocks underneath my case, just in case.

Bravo, when I first saw the honeycome hole you cut for the psu, I was like "WTF has he done to his antec? but the cable management really turned out good.

I also like the plan you made on the second pic lol.

Good job.
