There's a shroud that covers the power supply and the hard drive cage (holds 2)

Back of the motherboard holds 3 SSD's (yea, very messy in back but neat up front :) )

that looks like a Corsair 400 or 600C case :) 

 

a wee tip, see the usb cable from your AIO (the cable that connects to the USB 2.0 headers bottom left), it will fit in the slot just above the PSU shroud to the far left, through the gap ;) i did the same task last night. ill get pics up tonight. 

 

Ive routed all my PSu cabling under the mobo and out the back, and shoehorned 4 SSDs (2x2 RAID0 striped) into the 400C, same with all SATA cabling, all hidden with only the connectors on show. Finished it late on last night, btw Intel Optane tech with kabylake and RAID SSDs flies im seeing up to 1.2Gb/sec R/Ws on the striped arrays :D (Array 0 = 2x123gb 840 evos giving 256Gb Vol, OS, Array 1 = 2x256 Evo 850s for a 512Gb Vol, Games)

My mistake, it was the front panel audio connector i fed through that hole last night, tonight will be the 115i cabling through the same recess.

Just built my new PC, test running having the tower on the desk next to me. It's a bit louder than I'm used to but we'll see if that forces me to put it back on the floor or not.

Why did you put the cooler on its side? Isn't it preferable to put it standing in the direction of the rear fan?

That keyboard is the best one ever made, last time mine broke I bought the same one again since I couldn't find a better keyboard :)

When I see these battlestations I really need to buy a new monitor, sadly there are still no oled monitors :/

The top panels covering the vents are on. :) 

I'm not sure I agree with the CPU cooler placement either...but this probably isn't the area to discuss it.

I was forced to due to the adapter for my processor as there aren't many heatsinks. I will likely switch it in the future to one that allows for a horizontal placement.

I didn't open the top for another fan because I want to preserve the soundproofing of the case and keep dust from getting inside. If I had a choice I'd have mounted it differently.

Just quoting so you can see I had little choice in the matter. :)

Probably could have cleaned up a bit, but there it is. The inside of my case is pretty boring at the moment. It is new. If/when I build it up I'll update. 

And yes, I have tons of junk nick-knacks spread everywhere. They all have stories though.

Since my last share the only new things I have added is a smaller case which is the Cooler Master Mastercase Pro 5 and the Hisense 50H8C 4k TV as my monitor. The reason for the large size monitor is this is also my "TV" hence the recliner 7 feet behind the TV itself just not in the picture. 

 

Before anyone mentions the dust, I noticed it when taking the pictures so dusting is on my to do list.
