    the pics suck though

    i was running the 120mm deltas and one of them started moving at 12v and it fell off the table i cut it and slice lol

    edit: also should i just use the power switch leds as the power led, or also use the original power led (but switch it with a blue or white?)

    and then have my hdd light the other color?

    Hi man.... loving the project so far

    if you REALLY want to polish that side panel, there should be something called "metalix" (thats what its called here in the UK) which can actually be polished like real metal, and is as strong as metal...

    its made by "david's isopon's" or something, will try to get you more details on it tomorrow...

    take care man, ive never liked those delta fans for their ability to hack off fingers!

    *UPDATE*

    kk i made underglows

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    wiring sucks but ya ill figure it out later

    ive dECided not to take the time right now to put leds in my 120mm fans, i can always do that later so iM just gonna skip it for now

    Also i dunno if im gonna make the switch for the psone lcd, since i have no were to mount it, but lucky for me i bought a cord that has a sWITch on it already (the rolly switches like on night lights and stuff you know?)

    so ya ill just uSE Thati guess

    and i took the tape off the top OF MY case

    [​IMG]

    i havent seen it without tape since february 12 or so!! lol

    and ya i took it off

    [​IMG]

    as of now the pieces are all drying because i sprayed it with my hose to get out all the metal dust thats inside the case since i started modding and havent vacuumed out, its gonna be ready to paint in a day or 2 (inside at least)

    all for now

    i just need to find the right mobo and cpu now


    ok acutally i can mount the switch on the bezel, the same side as my usB ports! it should look nICE. I have a few questions, the ROCker switch has 2 prongs, does it matter which wire goes to which? or it dont matter?

    and also where should i hide THE ac adapter? at the top of the cae above the 92mm fan or under my ps1 adapter?
