    Very nice Pil....have to say this is what I imagined a HL case to look like...all the others touched it w/ the green lighting and such..but this...for lack of a better sentance..."Takes the cake"

    Keep it up man... :thumb:

    (I'm w/ you on the whole frosted face thing...what exactly does it mean <shrug>)

    I second this Idea.

    (sorry if this is starting to sound like a commitee, lol :D )

    you can cut holes in it to let your HSF, expansion cards, and RAM poke through.

    then scorch and rust it up some.

    Today I spend a bit of my time by full in the watercooling system with green toxic uv die :D and solder some wires to see how the case looks with some discret lightning :)

    I must say that it is only to test and that the lights aren't on their good places yet , it is just to show you the color contrast vs the rust

    That is looking so good... yah... :rock:

    So how are you keeping all the liquid in the system or are the water blocks in the same place as usual?

    Once again wonderful case! :rock:

    First of all : Unbelievable great work (probably sed that already)

    For lighting.. well.. I have a suggestion, its not the regular case lightning (leds, neon, etc..)

    but how about a normal lightbulb, but one of those old one's.. u know, the really 'dove' yellow one's..

    the white bulbs, wich when on, are really 'duffy' yellow..

    U know what I mean, the old one's, None of those white new stuff..


    that would look great !



    I'm sure u can find one somewhere, or else in a special lighting store, they probably have 'special light bulbs' that give that effect... :wallbash:


    just an idea though

    Taking the above idea a step farther - what about the magnesium 'flicker' bulbs??? Fairly low-voltage, and should be easy to integrate into the case! :idea:

    These, to be exact: http://electriclights.tripod.com/bulbs/flickerflame.htm

    They don't throw off a ton of light, but are about as bright as a candle - but the Flicker/Flame effect is great!

    That is truly awesome. Having the watercooling and lighting makes is look 10x cooler (and it was already amazing). This case just rocks :rock:

    thanks all :)

    yes , the WB is on good place

    I hope so :hip:


    well, I think I ll do it once the case will be done :)



    nice idea man but I think this would give some heat inside the case... about lightning I m still thinking about a white cathode with sound reaction to flick light with the hard drives activity

    here are two night shots I took testerday at night, love the uv effect, it is just enough and discret :)
