    Final Build

    In the above picture, the build is pretty much done.  The only eye soar is the front panel (power, HDD LED, reset, etc.) connector wires.  I have them wound up in a service loop because my sample case did not have wires long enough to bring the wires down the front of the case and then along the bottom. 

    I brought this up with the folks at Ultra and they informed me that they were already aware of the issue and that the production version of the case has long enough wires to allow hiding them along the back.

    Once everything is installed, you can't see any cables!  You can see only the end of the ATX cable because the rest of it is routed behind the drive bays on the other side of the case.  And you can barely see the floppy cable, SATA cable and power cables for the drives because they're all hidden behind the vanity plate.

    My little girl is checking in on the work I'm doing (I'm a proud father.. Her picture had to get in here somewhere.)

    So now the build is done.  That's it.  Side panel is on (as you can tell from the VGA vent in the window) and this is all you see.  ALL motherboard.  No obstruction from cables.  Which not only makes everything look cool.. but keeps everything cool too because there is no obstruction of airflow either!
