    The case looks great :clap:

    It does sound like you might be interested in a couple of finishing touches perhaps? If so...

    You wouldn't have black or if it even exists, orange loom? Yellow is ok i guess, i'm just being picky really :D

    It would have been cool to see the temp gauge sitting in that space under the vid card, not that the case doesn't have heaps of cool features as it is btw!

    I'm not going to use the temp guage at all. I am looking into getting some colored heatshrink though.

    It came out great.:D Let the recipient worry about cables. A little mess goes well with the theme anyway. '70s under the hood wiring was a rat nest.

    It's an awesome case, let us know what happens when your bro in-law recieves it!

    I just thought of something, that you might have done already but anyway... use a short mp3 of a 440 or some V8 starting up, for the windows startup sound, and of course an mp3 of a V8 turning off for windows shutdown!

    Yep, I got that. When you start up it plays a revving .wav file and shutdown has a 'peeling' out .wav

    I got the Logitech S520 mostly because of the gray bar along the bottom that I will be painting orange

    [​IMG]

    Krylon calls this color Pumpkin Orange

    [​IMG]

    The bar along the bottom does not come off, so I taped it off and painted it in place

    [​IMG]

    And the mouse too. Fortunately the mouse does come apart

    So far, so good

    When I bought the 440 logo it came as a pair so I put it on the keyboard too. Then I clear coated it all.

    Cool! :clap: :rock: I forgot about the keyboard :duh:

    Ok, i had another idea: A couple of big exhaust tips sticking out the back, that spit out big bright orange flames whenever there is hdd activity!
