I'm a long time reader but this is my first post here. My old project was dreampc and I didn't like it at all for some personal reasons and now I'm here, working in a new project but in the same case, corsair obsidian 800D. In this forum there are a lot of real artists so hope you like my project :

This time, the design is going to be simple, combining the matte-black color (mainly) plus the blue color and a little of white in some little details!
An example of design type about what i'm going to do:
The main pieces are:
Motherboard Tray Plate:
Custom backplate:This plate is a plate that covers the free zone near the motherboard and this is the concept:
And I want to highlight this little plates:
Why alot of holes? because in each hole I will pass one sleeved cable so the final result of all the cables passed is like a spider structure (very aesthetic in my mind, hope I will get a good result!). In every hole there are a little "ring" wich will be illuminated so the contrast with the black cable will be awesome! This plates correspond to the 24 pins plate and the GPU power cable plates.
Midplate:Nowadays there are a lot of mod with Waterblocks + backplate combination build but I wanted to try to be different to other people so decided to design my own backplate:
It's simple, full matte-black plate + the gpu model letters. In real it's a double backplate, one black and one blue. All the blue parts, like the mb tray plate will be illuminated with 12v SMD leds!.
The backplates are made specially for the aquacomputer gtx 480 waterblock:
The backplates cutted:
And this is how it looks installed and working in the backplate:
By now it's just a render but I am working to make it real
