    :p This is my first attempt at modding. These pictures where taken with my web cam so sorry about the quality as soon as I get a good cam I will update them. Mods Include side window, lots of blue LED’s, switchable fan speeds, blue hard drive light.

    I really like the look of the LEDs at the top pointing down. I also like the window design. I dislike looking at that empty space of my case.

    Well done for a first case. I think you need a lighted case badge to balance the light effects on the front. :clap:

    Those LEDs pointing down on the front look great. My Q-tec case allowes me to do so, too. Maybe I will...

    Hi i have just done some stuff to me case I have put 2 x 50mm fans in the front which are switchable between 12v and 5v and an 80 m fan in the top of my case. There is a total of 35 blue LED’s in my case. As for the make of case I do not know it was an unbranded one that only cost £25 ish.

    You got yourself a really nice project going on there! Fantastic downlights, real nice touch!!

    Are my eyes lying to me, or is that the first tower I've seen without any suspension between the front and the back of the top part of the tower (power-side and drives-side)? (Maybe you just removed them?)

    Anyways - keep up the good work. :thumb:

    Good Call. What is the deal with no supports running from front to back on the top of that case.
