    Hi guys

    ive stumbled onto the opportunity to get my cm201 sidepanel cut with any design i want via laser or waterjet cutting, but need an idea on what to have on it by monday and im fresh out of ideas.

    anyone got any suggestions? I can get matchin fangrills cut too. Was thinkin of a hl2 themed case as im receiving a UV CC and orange UV reactive molex's and cable braiding next week, so a hl2 logo on sidepanel and 2x hl2 logo fan grills, but thought itd become dated way too fast especially if i hated the game.

    please contribute guys :D

    Cheers

    alrght , that was a bit random...

    you could always get the hl2 logo cut on the side panel. Would look sweet.

    Have that cut into a side panel and add a yellow cc to the top and a red one to the bottom and u get a lovely gradient and you could have a contrasting blue hot air extraction fan.......

    one mod idea a friend of mine had was to laservut matrix code into your sidepanel... then buy an LED chaser kit or something and set it up so it lights going down the case and make it look like its falling.... could work

    i almost did it for my last case but decided against it becuase you wouldnt be able to see inside your case that much

    Wonder if theres a way to rig up a flatbed scanner rail behind a case panel with a blue or green cathode with all the workings, then use some sort of timer to have it sweep down from top to bottom, turn off, back to the top and repeat itself.

    Might be a bit noisy, but it just might work.

    Now Im no electronics or electrics genius, barely remember how to replace lightbulbs, but if someone is good at these things and has an old scanner they are willing to rip the guts out of, go ahead and give it a try.

    Perhaps the idea behind a truly magnificient mod???

    if it's a super duper cooling box i'd have a ice lolly cut into the side panel it would be different :D.

    If not i'd work with what you can do with lighting. Or maybe a case theme.

    What kinda stuff do you want on your case or like on your case?.


    Dragons, Fire, Swords, Women, Cars? if we have more of an idea of what you need or want it would be helpful.



    edit: because your getting orange molex's i thought fire then i thought meteorite! get a cool metoerite logo cut into the side of your case and for the fan grill have stars or meteor rocks. You can light one side of the meteor the rock end and make the light fade the futher the tail goes along.

    How are you going to draw it up? Do you have to use a special program to do it? If so, which one? Or do you have to draw it up by hand? I may be interested in helping. Also, I like the spash of red in there. You could even make a secondary mask to have that red splash in there and the rest of the case with the larger design.
