Working on the PSU

MCE2.0 by Sleepstreamer P.S...You!

At first, I wanted to use a small SFF 1U Power supply, but seeing how power-hungry new hardware is, it just would'nt work. I decided to strip down an Antec 650W Truepower Trio instead.

Of course, a futuristic tech look (for me, at least) would not look complete without stainless steel. I used it on Cold-Fusion, and it's going on this one as well.

To finish off the PSU, I put on a protective shield made from some AC Ryan MeshX panel. There are also some double-stick tape between the heatsinks and the shield.

With the PSU done, I had one more bit of touch-up left that I'd noticed. It's simply a piece of UV Blue AC Ryan Acrylpanel, which I etched and bent around the back of the case.
