Case Build and Finished Product

The reason we stopped to take this image is just because one stud-style standoff allows the motherboard to be hung in the chassis without the need to hold it. This leaves your hands free to hold screws and the driver to fill all of the holes we have yet to fill.

With the chassis configured to our needs, we like what the 780T offers in the finished interior. All of the wiring is hidden behind the tray, and our triple radiator AIO and PSU are virtually hidden within the deep offsets in this design. Still, there is plenty of room for more cards, more water cooling, or anything else you may see fit to stuff inside of this chassis.

Out back, there is nothing as far as issues are concerned. The I/O shield snaps right in, the cards are level and secure, and even though they did not supply any PSU screws, we managed to get by there as well.

Without the drive rack in place, it is really tough to hide all of the wiring, but within about an hour or so of tying back wiring and routing it to all the places it needed to go, we are pleased with our results. Although, you don't have to tame wiring much; you just need to keep it out of sight. The depth here will handle any groups or nests of wiring you can come up with.

With all that work behind us, we replaced the side panels and stepped back to admire our work. While we chose not to disturb the bezel with an exposed drive, an LED backlit bay reservoir would accent the bezel nicely.

Once the chassis is powered, the front I/O panel is all aglow with white LED lighting. All of the connections have a light to show where they are in the dark, the fan controller illuminates in three stages denoting the speed setting, and the large ring around the power button, along with the words on it, are also illuminated.

All of that panel illumination goes to match the front of the 780T, where we find the glow of the LEDs on the fans poking through the mesh. There is even a thin white stripe of white LED just above the bay covers. If you opt for the black model, we are told the LEDs will be red, and the yellow variant will offer white LEDs like this one has.
