    Blue is so over rated. although red is getting.

    I was going to do a single red (but very thick) striped from corner to corner on the sides of the case. it was be neat, and simple.

    i go for simple designs never super fancy unless im paying some1.

    Any body willing to paint that for me and not charge me an arm and a leg?

    I emailed smooth creations but i assume they will be high. i thought of a automotive place but they do cars. generally not cases or in fine detail.

    If you can't I suggest you find a body shop that does paint on the side.. or tattoo parlors.. There is all ways great air brush artists at those places!

    Another place to look at is Hyperkore. They do window etching, but it's done in 3 different sytles, and They do some great jobs!!!

    I might get one done from Hyperkore when I get the new case.. Or even the Cosmos.. The window that I got from Newegg, is real easy to take out, so I can get the etching done pretty sweet!

    Well i cut some holes out in the case but the 124pin annoys me, the IDE cable annoys me and the power for the ide dvd drive annoys me. other wise its pretty good.

    I want this case to be so clean looking your jaw drops.

    I did run out of ports on the fan controller :p

    its got 6 and i have 10 fans :p

    Proper painting is very expensive..Not including the time (which can be many hours) is surface prep, sanding materials, filler, primers,base coats top coats and additives for the paints. that dosent even take into account the tools needed..

    get a sticker job done that would be easier. Just get a good high quality image.
