    UV LEDs & a design painted in UV green paint on a black case. Always looks good! :)

    I would definitely do something about the texture of the case, to me plain black just seems so boring, add an interesting finish would really make the case stand out more.

    There´s great inspiration out there, just take a look at piloux Blackmesa HL2 mod. It serves as great inspiration even if it´s kinda out of at least my league. :rolleyes:

    One I idea for you could use would be to do what´s done on the chemical overdose mod. On the top of the case he added a piece of plexi and metal with a green led glued to the plexi. IMO it looked really great and it´s not a really hard mod to accomplish. If you haven´t checked it out, just search for it.. It´s ******* fantastic! :rock:

    Good Luck!

    Thanks for all your help - I looked at the hl2 one and was amazed :rock: although i dont expect mine to be anywhere as near good . i would like to go a kind of Bio-reactor way, i'm thinking of a few designs atm but should i use a gloss or somthing else to finish it to stop the paint getting scrapped of - i would like to have it done for i21 (lan party) at the end of august heres hoping :worried:

    If you´re going in the Bio-reactor direction you absolutely must check out the chemical overdose-project. It´s full of original idéas and there are probably many things that could inspire you to make your case even more outstanding.

    is there some way you could make it look like there is a glowing green goo flowing out of all the seals and cracks? maybe paint a big crack on the mobo side and have the goo flow out of there? Looks good So far :thumb:

    You could paint your drive cages, they really stand out when they're grey.
