It looks awesome, although I would definately get rid of that x3 switch, it uglifies it.....

Grill looks good but you need some lighting in your window to light it up more...that and you should get a matching led fan....

Yep the X3 switch kills the look. Maybe get a pro switch and paint it, or relocate the X3 switch to the back.

Kinda funny but it turned out looking like a really shiny black paint but i masked it with electral tape i found the ink ran through the paper masking tape and electrical tape worked much better, i used black permanent marker and just drew it on kinda ghetto but it actually looks like black paint not marker even up close smile.gif Im thinking of adding a black out line in the cd tray but im not sure yet cause it sorta looks good all white through the window. I sanded the crap out of this thing to i used like 4 different types dunno what the exact names were for the sand piper all i know is i started with the roughest i had and then sanded with this really really fine one i had last.

get a x3 control panel in black and paint that to match, that would be best bet. Also not bad paint job, looks a little thick above the eject button in that little triangle area, but it just might be light.

Wow that looks beautiful. A really nic white I like it and the logo on top is just sick. The X3 switch looks awkward but not bad. If someone looks that that XBOX and notices the switch before the XBOX then they have problems.

Yeah its light in the triangle , the paint isnt really that thick i sprayed a good distance away to avoid overspray and drips. I forget how many thin layers i put on ,like really thin layers it took at least 3-4 layers before i even started seeing the white come togeather. without seeing any black from the case.....
edit- spelling

get a black paint pen from craft store and go oner the black lines, if its a 1.6 i see no use in the switch cause your bios is limited on 1.6, i dont use switch on my 1.6.
