a lot of painting, like usual , I will use a base, mid and clear coat, but I have a little surprise with the paint on this one
will add some acrylic panel and my usual backplate
will put the GPU vertical or maybe....,, wait and see ;) 
sure, will do my own custom cable,
and a lot of light from Darkside led strips
at this time, I'm not sure if I will install a second system on back for gaming or simply use the server side....
some pics of all goodies I received from Thermaltake Technology Inc,
look at the Strix block and backplate, so beautiful

Green Gargoyle UPDATE:

want to say a HUGE thanks to Thermaltake Technology Inc and Andy Cheng for the patience
and EZ because he are the guy who start my relationship with Thermaltake
I hope that its worth waiting and they like it :)
the first thing is painting the case, with the size of this case, I'm going to need the same quantity of paint if I paint a car :)
the case will be all white with some metallic, (its me, for sure white hahaha)
first sanding and some coat of filler primer

Green Gargoyle Update:
top case (W200) are done, now jump to the bottom (P200) and all accessories like ram heat spreader , radiators and more
I will redo the motherboard panel with acrylic and make some pass-through for loop, want it very clean,
cant wait to put some hardware in this little monster
not sure but I think its the first WP200 all white
again thanks to Thermaltake Technology Inc, Andy Cheng and ASUS Republic of Gamers for the support in this HUGE project
a special one to EZ Gunz, I think its my biggest supporter ;)

sorry for very late update
finally spend all of my time on this project after more than 6 month
and don't know why but inspiration came backwhen I put the case on the desk lolll
first thing, the Motherboard, not the most elegant and beautiful Mb for an aesthetic build
I will try to do something

its always impressive to see a Dual Xeon with all ram slot filled (16x)


one things I like, no , I LOVE on Thermaltake block, no inlet or outlet, I can use them the way I want
what is more ugly that Green PCB ram, I ordered heat spreader from ebay at $20 for 20 shipping include
for sure I paint them all white with the waterblock mount

I also choose to redo the whole interior with acrylic panel to keep the build really clean
I also did a elevated panel  for reservoir to have a light glow all around
I will also do one for MB tray for covering the top , like that It will be from bottom to top and will have some pass-through for tubing
but run out of acrylic panel , will go to hardware store today or tomorow
all panel will be white and silver, with for sure RGB led ;)
I also choose to hide most part of the ugliest of the MB (don't know why but I like it , its a motherboard  hahahah)
this mi my try to make an home made  "ARMOR"
the green part is elevated form the rest of the armor to hide USB, SATA and front connector
and I will glow the motherboard with RGB  :) hehe
this design not remind you something?
I took some inspiration from a MB brand  :P
