    You probably saw my first post on this but heres some teaser pics.

    I took a Chenbro Net Cube.

    Placed a smoked glass window kit from PCMods in the side.
    Placed a BG Micro 20x2 VFD over the window. It looked like crap so I took window tint and tinted the VFD.

    I also baught a smoked window for the top but I hate that goddamn H molding so much I decided not to use it. I baught door molding at Advanced Auto Parts and installed it. I used regular clear plexi glass and glued it to the case top.

    The top piece of the case is 2x the thickness of the sides. I wouldn't of been able to use the H molding even If I wanted to. I had to file down the edges of the hole in order to fit the molding. Beneath the top panel was all metal. I had to take a jigsaw and cut out a hole big enough that the plexi would fit, and proper room for when I removed the top pannel. This required taking a 1/4" off the bracket that holds the floppy drive.

    Right now I am waiting for my blue led switch from Bulgin and I will finish the case.

    Some other mods I did for this new system are....
    Painting the bezels of both cd drives, floppy and zip drives. Painting the bezel of the hard drive 3 fan cooler.
    Adding mesh sleeving to a $200 550w power supply.
    Turing a regular Digi Doc 5 into one with blue leds and polarizing film.

    The system going in it is
    Soyo SY-KT400 Dragon Ultra (Platinum Edition) Motherboard
    AMD ATHLON XP 2200+/266 FSB PROCESSOR CPU
    2x CORSAIR MEMORY XMS Extreme Memory Speed Series 512MB 32MX8 PC-3200C2 With Heat Spreader
    NewQ PC Home Theater Internal Audio System
    Thermalright SLK-800 Heatsink
    Thermaltake SMART CASE FAN II
    SB Platinum 5.1 Sound Card
    TDK CW-RW 12x10x32x32
    Toshiba DVD-ROM
    NVIDIA GeForce 2 Pro 64mb (main monitor)
    NVIDIA GeForce 4 Verto 64mb PCI (second monitor)
    Creative Inspire 5.1 5300 Speakers
    Maxtor 30 gig hd (Windows XP)
    Maxtor 100 gig hd (my stuff)
    BG Micro 20x2 FVD
    Floppy Drive
    Internal 100mb Zip drive
    2x 90mm fans intake
    1x 120mm fan blowing out
    1x 60mm fan blowing out
    1 blue cc
    1 blue neon

    I am also contemplating dremeling out the punisher logo on the other side of the case.

    Anyone have any suggestions, I would appreciate it.
