this is my first case, basically its a pretty ancient computer and i thought i should spice things up. unfortunately, i didnt take pics as i went along... anyway, i started with a beige case, not very big and this is basically what i'v done so far:

- i took off the cover, and made windows for the side and top (with blowhole).

- painted front panel black, cd-rom drives, floppy drive, power button and faceplates in silver.

- put foil on the floor and side of the case. (makes a really cool reflection)

- added a 4 inch green cathode.

- added 2 80mm uv led fans, one orange, at the back of the case, and one green at the top of the case on the blowhole. (green fan has a green uv reactive 'bio-hazard' fan grill.

- cleaned up my wires, added lume on most of them.

- added a green floppy round cable (still waiting on ide and cd-rom round cables).

specs:

p3 733Mhz
gigabyte GA-6VXE7
640mb DDR SDRAM
ever power 235 watt psu
80gb h/d + samsung 20gb h/d
radeon 7000 gfx
creative soundblaster live 5.1
samsung 52x cd-rom drive
firewire card
56k internal modem

(told you its an ancient computer, lol... upgrading motherboard, graphics and processor soon and gonna get water cooling :D )

that thing needs still much work. the worst thing is that these huge metal parts inside are visible. cut and paint them or do something with that plexi. maybe use some tinted foil for windows... in addition, stealth all drives and concentrate on one color or at least 2 that match a theme. the wire cleaning looks good and the idea of putting that foil inside is interesting. don't give up and keep up the good work.

the picture is retarded.. the purple in the pic is just the UV, in reality, the purple isnt very visible...

not a big fan of how there is so uch tin or whatever on the top of the case........if your going ot use plexy then let us see alot more of whats inside the case and remove the tin stuff by the powersupply.

what he could do is make it an acrilic door with a window ;) he could just paint the outer edges and hide the psu holder thing, and just leave the middle of the acrilic clear.
