i havent worked out the plans yet, but i want to have two blue case fans like the ones u see in the pic... run two HD's (one for live, and one big one for media storage with a switch), have all the buttons and swithes on the front, and all the connections at the back, and i have a 6.5" LCD screen that I want to mount flush on the top... then paint the inside of the clear plastic in black pearl so that it shines real nice, then have blue led's in the 2 controller ports ( i plan on hard wire inside the case 2 logitech wireless dongles so that u wont see them) and the buttons and put it up on four or five clear discs and have two 4" blue cathodes for underglow...
im planning on running the IDE cable out of the bottom for the dvdrom since I usually just use my bigger HD, so when i want to play on live i just pull out the extended IDE cable to the external DVDrom in a similar case.........
gimme some more ideas or thoughts on this... its in schematic phase right now.

sorry about the blurry image, my digicam sucks...

uh.... thanks MickRaider

import_lover_1989: Well, i guess I should have mentioned that my PC and TV both have blue led's in them already and are both black.... So I wanted to have one universal theme to all my equipment. Not a bad idea tho with the UV.

paint the inside black just with one coat so you could still throw some LEDs inside and shine through a bit
