    For your ass. :rockout: My dad cut out the plexi to my specs. I then painted the glass black on the opposite side and here is what it looks like. I still need to etch the design but I still don't know what I am doing yet. I also am adding uv leds in the corners you dont see to light up the rounded frosted edges. :cool: Let me know what you think so far.. :toast:

    Edit: Duh, it says Soprano on it (haha).

    Nice to see the final touches nearing on it TSX. The top fan grille looks good with the light and the slight addition of some red light improves it over a full blue shade. You've been clean with your cables too.

    Thanks, I got regular plexi and painted the opposite side.. :)

    To do what you want, all you have to do is apply 5% tint to the plexi.

    Thanks.. I like red and blue. It is pretty much going to be the scheme of my case. I am going to do either red coolant and blue sleeves or blue coolant and red sleeves. I also wil be using UV leds as well. Red and blue make purple so I thought it'll be cool. My black widow will have a red hourglass on it too. So yeah red and blue. :toast:

    That is ace mate!

    I have the same case and thought it looked good as standard but you have produced a work of art!

    Wow...and I didn't think your case could get any better. I absolutely love it....

    It's given me an idea for modding my case and keeping my cables out of view :D
