In this last part of this blog-series I will show you how all the hardware above is installed in the case as well as the end result of the build.

This is how we ended up in the last part, now all the hardware needs to be installed and the LCD has to be configured.

In a small case like this you have to install the parts in a particular order to be able to fit everything. So first of all I started with the motherboard and installed the fans to one of the fan-ports.

Then I installed the SSD-holder to the Corsair H75.

Next thing to do was to install the radiator, I screwed it together with the front fan and installed all the cables needed. I used P-clips to tie everything down as well.

Last thing, mount the CPU-block!

This is how the inside turned out looking, I tried to get everything as tidy and clean as possible.

Here is a nightshot for you. I set up the LCD so it cycles through three screens, the name of the build, the sponsors and finally a status screen with temperatures, usage etc.

Now it is time to show some end result photos of this little scratchbuilt case. This little PC will be used as a HTPC for movies and some simpler games.
