    nope the doorbell doesnt have a back light, Im going to see how much will be involved in adding one or I will end up using copper clone and painting the button a copper tone.

    Well the power supply is now installed and holding but I still plan to make a bracket to help support it further and it will add a nice accent to the theme of the case, all the lighting for the system has been installed although the sticky pads that come with the lighting is crap and does not hold at all, the lights kept coming off so once I am completely happy with their positions I will then epoxy them into place, all but two of the fans have been installed, one of the two rads have been installed, the final rad and two fans will be installed once I get the side panel from MM, the front multifunction controllers are installed, Im not sure what I will do with the one with the mirror finish maybe look at some Victorian style mirrors and see how the surrounding casing is on them and make something similar, once I am done with the system it will be stripped back down, given a light sanding and painted one final time and then reassembled and final cable management will take place.

    Pictures will be coming shortly.

    alright folks here are some down and dirty quick pics of some of the progress, when I get my camera back from my brother who "borrowed" it when he went on his trip I will be able to get some cleaner shots up but my camera phone and a desktop lamp will have to do for now ;)

    The below two images show a mock up of the fan controllers and of the doorbell power switch, the second fan controller with the mirror finish stands out compared to the rest, I plan to make a picture like frame to go around it to help it blend a little better, again this is just mock up not finalized.

    The next image shows the radiator installed in the back, the grill that is currently there is just for a ref. one will be made with a honey comb style.

    The next two images is of the power supplied installed and yes the four little screws are holding but Im still going to make a nice looking bracket to help support the weight and will add better support when the case is transported.

    In the next image is the pci cover that holds the lighting switch, I will be taking the two sets of brackets and merge them into one to take up less space and make it look cleaner, the bracket will of course be painted black to keep with the color scheme.

    Well I have this whole week off so I will be able to go and cut out some of the parts like the psu bracket and corner parts and some other little ideas I have in the back of my head.

    Hey folks sorry for being gone for so long, I had some personal/family issues that took some time to attend to.

    Anyhow Im back and well I hear you guys and you want to see A LOT more modding so thats what Im going to do, Im going to design some new elements for this build and give it a even more custom look, but I also want to hear some of your guys/gals thoughts on what you would like to see done as well so all your ideas will be taken seriously and if I can will work them into the design.

    Again everyone sorry for being gone for so long.

    Alright Folks I will be putting a slight hold on this project as I am waiting for some newer tech to come, I also contacted my sponsors and shifted some of the sponsored items over to my FEAR project as I will be able to complete that sooner.
