    This is the bit-tech we've missed. Absolutely delighted to see an article like this on the front page again, thanks for listening to the feedback guys.

    As the others said: More please!

    What about using illuminated plexiglass. Installing leds into the side of a plexiglass window by drilling holes into the side of plexiglass and installing leds into these holes.

    That only works if you have an etching on the plexiglass, it will look good if you do!

    Very nice stuff BT, more focus on modding (preferably without abandoning the hardware and gaming sides of things) would be great :D

    Hoping to pick up some good ideas with this. At the moment the lighting in my case makes it look like a Jukebox.

    This is so freaking f*cking awesome I just can't f*cking describe how f*cking awesome this is! I want bit tech to stop reviewing games and computer hardware and just do light mod features that's how freaking excited I am! Can you tell I'm really hyped up and very excited now? This goes way beyond the high I had when I tripped on mushrooms. It's just the most freaking fcking awesomest thing ever and I want bit tech to show pretty lights every day. This is so awesome I want to mod my X52 Pro as well, maybe add some green lights and an LCD showing temperature, time of day and other stuff.

    Where can you get the LED flexi chains? (the ones with rubber boots things).

    Is this bit-tech bringing back some of what many missed of old bit-tech which I wasn't around to see?. :D

    If it is which I think it is combined with all the rest of what bit-tech brings tech news/previews/reviews/gaming then things are looking saaaweeeeeet as I had a feeling they would be. :rock::D

    Just don't go mistreating the awesome staff you have whoever runs things. :nono::D They all rock & keep things running awesome. :clap:

    UV lighting. It's subtle, and won't glare through the room when you're sleeping.

    Also, mount a switch to the side of your case that runs between the power source and the light, and it's easy enough to kill any light source you install.

    Hey chaps (and chapesses), don't only be restricted to illuminating your cases, you should see what I've done to an old pair of Y-Fronts I found in our lasses drawers. Hang on a minute.......

    Here's a ighting mod I made in a HAF 932 case. It's subtle and easily defeated by tuning the internal software volume down a bit. Uses a direct audio connection, not those electret-mic based sound modules.

    It's comprised of two main mods: glow under the motherboard and a hardware-hacked TB Apollish 140mm.

    That's not entirely true. The acrylic will need some soft of surface disruption for it to emit electons, but it can be as simple as roughing the surface lightly with sandpaper. Otherwise, you'll get a very sharp edge of light at the exterior edge of the acrylic, which is itself a very nice effect.
