    Nice work w/ the Dremel!

    What about a white led lit pice of plexi with a frosted edge around the window and hi-lighted with glow paint colors and a uv ccfl inside? Then use same paint to hi-light the board traces with.
    The front can have a piece of clear plexi with the same pattern etched into it and edge lit with uv leds... (using the same uv paint to accent it...???

    Re: Nice work w/ the Dremel!

    yeah was thinking of playing with the frosted effect on the edges of the plexi, with uv ccfl inside and wires sleeved red.... casing will be snow white..

    as for the front, i'm thinking of a clean job, maybe just a on/off vandal switch in the middle

    I hope you didn't go all that way just for those parts. Though you do have some cool stuff there.. I agree with you on the black/blue colors.. almost over done. I kinda like the idea of frosting the plxi window and some lighting to accent be it blue and or u/v. However, I think that red would kind of defeat the frozen/ice thing. I may be totally off on this but personally I would associate red with heat or fire. But then that may not be too bad either. As for the color of the case you might try white with some sort of blue highlights or streaks or something like that. Maybe try to make it look like cracked ice using an airbrush technique??? I dunno.. just a few thoughts to maybe help you out a little..
    BTW what kind of case is that? Is it an actual computer case or was it meant for something else?

    happy modding

    as a matter of fact, i did just go all the way there for those haha!
    modding stuff is crap in m'sia, and overpriced too. i could've sourced from online shops but those were pricey too.

    so that was my only choice :)

    well just thought would like a little contrast between the blue and white of the casing. still playing around with the idea, yet to reach a decision.

    cracked ice? great idea!! will note that down, just need to find a place that does airbrushing, though i feel like doing it my self.

    yeah its an actual computer case, those 186 or 286's, i ripped out all the internals and cleaned it up a bit
