Do you have another good picture of the front of the case in daylight? I just want to see what it looks like. Is your harddrive up top in an enclosure?
Oh and on the videocard, I think that the ati cards will have a price drop soon (due to the introduction of the 9800pro and 9600 cards. Hopefully the 9500pro and 9700pro will come down in price and you can stink a zm80a on it. Thats what im going to do.
Also what is the bright bluish light coming out of the top window of the case, it looks cool!

I'll edit my post with a front pic for u when i have more time tomorrow

My harddrive is right at the top front. If you look into the top window, it'll be right there, opposite the psu.

The blue light is from a cold cathode. I have only one stuck in the corner between the side and top windows. It's bright in real life, but it looks REALLY bright in these pics becuase i took them in night mode (= long shutter).

Your Case?

What kind of case is that? Did you do the windows yourself?


... also, I like how the cold cathode color matches the LCD front panel color... where did you get the LCD unit?

Wow, another extremely tidy case...and I thought I did my cables with tidiness in mind...makes me wanna try to get back in there and improve it. I can't seem to see any of the cold cathodes and ect that the others seem to be talking about, but I see the tidy case:D
