    That's a fairly modern case, for a true sleeper build, you have to pick a pre-1999 case.

    Slightly humored by the idea that anything without gross amounts of RGB is now a sleeper build. I like the overall idea of the build.

    He didn't even want a side window. Maybe "The No Frills Build" would have been a more appropriate title... 
     
    On a side note I did have to ship it to him and I stuffed as much bubble wrap as I could to support the heat sink and GPU but UPS's gentle handing still jostled the box around enough to cause the GPU to go slightly out of alignment causing it not to boot. A quick R&R of the GPU and he was up and running.... Couldn't be happier!
