I wanted to do something quick and easy so I took a 12 inch blue LED strip intended for a car, took it out of it's tube, and wired it into a molex connector.

The light had different flashing settings controlled by a switch, but I had no place to run a switch to on the computer. As a result, I soldered it into my reset button (Pic 1, the soldered wire, Pic 2, the Reset Button on the front)

Pic 3 show the case lit up with the blue bar - I wanted a low effect since I have two other cold cathodes in there (turned off for this pic) that light up the room.

Also, the cables are messy because I recently installed some temp gauges in the empty 5.25 bays (shown in Pic 4)

Oh yeah, and by the way, buy yourself some tiwraps (however they spell that stupid word), and redo the cables - they're a mess.

Well done! A pic of the case as a whole would be nice, since you only posted detail-shots. But i must say those temperature meters look really slick.

Don't like the temperature displays! Cool idea but too cheep!
And they took a lot of space.
Do something with the cables...
Keep up...
