I prefer the honeycomb myself (and just found some that's the same as mnpctech's for $2.53/sq ft not $5.99!) but that kinda diamond look sets it apart. I like the thumbscrews to hold in the drives... I'm surprised more people don't do it (it's my favorite thing, although it was a bit of a pain getting enough thumbscrews as I use all 9 of my drive bays and almost everything uses M3 (lian li style) threading). They're kinda catchy and are set off nicely from the black interior. That chip you just mentioned should do interesting things... will it kinda give a result like madlights do? I've got a set... they're fun and overly bright lol, pwn a cold cathode for versatility any day too. However the LEDs act, it should come out nicely.
