im planning on taking this product, and putting it in the top of my case.

Image
a rough look on what type of case i have. mines very similar to this one, except its got a window on the side, and is a lil different.

Image
ill be using the blue one.

Image
a rough sketch of how it should look when its done. planning on having it flush with the case, but should be using window molding.

ill get a few pix of my real case up on here when i get home. then ill do a photoshop image with that in my case when i get home as well. this is going to be very fun for me to do. practically my first tutorial ive done, and my first mod within the past 2 years or so. :D just gotta wait for the supplies to be shipped to my house.

this whole mod is paid for by my loving girlfriend.

You are going to do anything to the door? Would balance things a bit when you have bright spots on both the top and the side now...

nothing new to the door, but i do already have blacklight ccfl's, uv reactant molex connectors, 3 uv reactant case fans, then i also got a couple blue ccfl's inside the case. after i get the luminglass installed, i will have light on the top, side and front. if i can ever figure out that animated led thingie, im planning on doing something to the front door, instead of the steady blue lights, have "racing" blue leds. have it start out at the bottom of the door, then just run up, only downside is that theres 7 slots on each side, and 3 on the top. if i do that, i just might have 2 at the top section. would be kinda like
Code:
     8| 9 10 10 9| 8
     _             _
     7             7
     _             _
     6             6
     _             _
     5             5
     _             _
     4             4
     _             _
     3             3
     _             _
     2             2
     _             _
     1             1


each _ or | means a separate section in the case. so it would start out at the bottom, race up, then blink in the middle, then repeat.

jigsaw ended up being dead. so its time for the trusty old dremel

Image

Next, just waiting for my 2 coats of black spray paint and 1 coat of clear coat to dry, then i will attempt to glue it into place using shoe goo.

one minor speed bump, and one major one.


Image
1. might not be able to tell from the pics, but the pic but the top panel is now glossy, so i will either have to live with it, or put a coat of clear coat on everything else. only time will tell with that one.


Image
2. Theres little tabs that will have to be dremeled out. these "tabs", as i put it, are actually the top of the 5.25" drive bay. removing them shouldnt do any damage, it looks like something minor, but for this i just might take everything out of my case to do this, dont want aluminum dust to mix with the other components. so option one just might be done as well.... :( this is looking to be more work than i thought.

Nyt näkyy Jimm's PC-Storessa olevan 12" ja 16" plasma-ikkunoita koneen kylkeen. Jälleen metkulaisen modaus pöllitty kaupalliseksi :roll:

Tällähetkellä löytyy alimpana etusivulta. Jollei näy siellä enää, ni tuotehakuun: plasmaikkuna.
