Why "Lime" which is a shade of green, when your case is lit blue?

Crud. I wish I had all the parts I needed to build my new PC.

Unfortunately, I have to buy the components one piece at a time,

so it looks like my new rig will be baking in the oven for a while.

This is made worse by the fact that I am starting from scratch. :ermm:

I'll post pics when I get it finished in a 3 or 4 months. :p

Aside from that, I see a couple of nice ones here..

The lighted case fan on the CPU is a nice touch;

I was thinking of doing that when I bought the Thermaltake SP-97. :D

Hay thats ok, I started with just the case, then I added the blue cathode, 3 led fan, then the UV light & uv fans.

it does take time to build it all up, but thats what makes it so rewarding when you notice one day just how kick-ass your system is

Thank you for the encouragement. :)

Right now I have a Cheiftec aluminum case and (5) 80mm Cooler Master LED fans.

I'm trying to keep the temps down without violating Virginia noise ordinances.

I don't plan to do anything really wild, so cathode tubes are out.

Besides, those are not really my thing, and I?m fairly certain the LED fans will more than compensate;);)

It is my hope that I can accomplish a sexy, yet intriguingly understated theme with my box.

I'm going for a classy (but conservative) silver/blue & silver/black style with the entire PC.

Silver case with black drives, monitor, and accessories. Anything lighted will be blue,

with the exception of the 90mm CPU cooling fan on the SP-97 heatsink:

I plan to make that a red/blue hybrid to distinguish it from the rest of the setup,

but also be because it turns out that the fan makes less noise (while pushing the same CFM)

than a competing 90mm all blue fan. Sort of a mixed blessing, since I now like the idea of

drawing special attention to the CPU/heatsink combo. (Why not? It cost enough!)

I sometimes feel a little anxious about this new PC; I can't wait to have it done:rofl:l:

In a way, taking 6 months to build a PC one component at a time does have it's rewards.

Normally when people ask me to build PCs, a lot is left up to my discretion.

This time, I'm practically choosing every last nut and bolt. Or in this case,

virtually every screw and washer. Every part gets researched before the final spec calls for it.

It may not be "kickass" according to some by the time I actually complete the build,

but it will be customized to fit me perfectly. As such, it will be more than kickass to me.

I've always wanted to build a PC perfect for me without having to compromise because

of money or time issues. Isn't that what a dream PC is? Why, yes, I think it is!:):)

It's only a matter of time before my dream PC becomes a reality...

I'm counting down the days until I can post detailed specs & pix of my pristine new rig:D:D

I just started on modding my rig ... put everything into a clear acrylic case and added a cathode:ninja:

I know the cable mgmt. bites but like I said I'm just starting on it

I saw a few people that had their PSU wires wrapped in something..what is it?

and could you use something else?

The only other mod I have installed is that huge-mongous GlobalWin air cooler

it's actually lighter then the stock HFU

Nice; would be interesting to see when you have completed the mod.

Acrylic cases are pretty cool, just be sure to dust often.

Afterall, you can see everything..! :p

btw - Welcome to Neowin.

:fun:

if I wanted to use a router to carve some designs in the sides I know I should tape off what I'm actually gonna cut into ..but would that actually keep it from cracking and/or splintering?(I have the acrylic case) I want to put small logos on the top and sides .. I'm thinking of what logos I want to use ..Right now I know I want the Quake 3 triad on both sides and the ut2k3 on the top above my hard drive ..but I don't want to risk cracking or breaking my case

should I use water on the router bit? ... just proceeding with caution here
