Wow! That's some hardcore modding.

Do you have more in-progress pics? You should definitely do a build log thread if so, this is such a cool build :D

Thanx much! I didn't have any more pictures nor did I plan on doing a build log, I'll probably will do a build log with better quality photos

You are correct! Purple is my wife and mother favorite color, also I always like the purple and green color scheme; I've decided to do my build around The Joker but was convinced by my son to name it Villain.

Could also get away w/ calling it a Hulk theme -- Green skin + Purple shorts

Hello,

just a quick question - will I be able to purchase (when the time comes) different colour combination of panels? I would prefer something like red case with black top (like someone here who received mismatched panels by accident).

Thanks!

I've just raised one possible improvment on both cerberus/cerberus-x.

My proposal is to have a fully vented side panel, as it will allow very good non-reference gpu cooling (like my msi gtx 1080ti). Based on my personal, it would be a great addition.

However it should increase (most probably double) side panel price.

For me, it would be great to have it as an option, like atx bracket.

What do you think about it?

Seems like those vents on the side panel are needed, but are we willing to sacrifice price and aesthetics for thermal reduction?
Well that's the point.

Currently i can play with no thermal issues as cpu load is still fairly low.
But when i'm playing with side panel off, it's becoming so cool and quiet (no amd fanboy here..:))

I'm even thinking of experimentation of using my noctua u9s with vertical exhaust as trial.
