The back looks a bit homemade,

but i'm waiting for full-height usb and HDMI brackets in the mail,
also the aux sound is supposed to come from one of these:

But two of them didn't work as they should have, plus i found that having longer extender cables (being able to drag out 1 meter cable) is really practical sometimes.
thunderbolt 3 was supposed to come out of an extender cable, but i seem to have lost that, plus i needed a thunderbolt 3 - 2 adapter anyways, so it wouldn't be able to look snug in there with that bulky thing..

I spent so much time trying to figure out how i would do the backside, but then in the end i don't really pay much attention to it, so i'm probably just gonna get a usb-c hub to have on my desk for convenience anyways.

The AC cable is an original iMac cable, with an extender cable on the inside to reach the powersupply.
