To be fair, it looks nice. The system itself is super weak (G530 is the cheapest LGA1155 Dual core CPU), so everyone should calm down a bit.

Absolutely amazing! I can tell how much work you put into it.

It's even more amazing considering this is your first scratch build. This is just really fantastic, applaud from me. Just amazing.

If the aim is aesthetics then power has no meaning dude.

Modding is about creativity and workmanship above all else (at least in my book).

If there happens to be some awesome hardware in it, then great, if not, then it

doesn't really matter as long as the rest is up to par. You can never save a bad

mod with great hardware, whereas no uber-system is required to have a great mod.

If thats the case, then I would say this a beautiful piece of modern art, but a horrible computer. For Christ sake, she all but destroyed the CPU heatsink. I can't see this system running stable for longer than a few hours. It looks nice, but thats it.

Haha, I have to admit it was a worry I had in the beginning. But... After stress testing the highest temperature measured was 49 degrees, Which is very respectable for an Ivy Bridge CPU. It has been running stable for the whole week at computex with tropical temperatures ;)
