    Hey guys, I'm getting tired of looking at the same computer case everyday, so I want to spice it up a bit :rockout:. My current case is the NZXT nemesis similar to this one:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...030&cm_re=nemesis_case-_-11-146-030-_-Product

    The only difference between that case and mine is that mine is an older model and does not have the LCD moniter on the top. So guys? What should I do..get some LED lights..extra fans with nice lights? Also I don't actually have much knowledge on what is actually out there for me to put on my pc :banghead: haha. Any suggestions are appreciated, thanks in advance guys :).

    Choose a color scheme ... buy C-Cathodes / LED fans and hide all wires or sleeve em ... and most important - don't over do it ... good luck :toast:

    Thanks, sorry but just wondering what kind of adapters would I need for power, and how much psu does a fan usually take? Because I'm pushing my 400w already:(

    That case looks like it has enough eye candy in my opinion...

    If I sent you a picture of my actual case, I don't think you would think so :p. The newegg picture is exaggerated if the entire case is supposed to glow blue, or maybe some of the lights are burnt out. I only have 1 fan that glows blue in my entire case, and the rest is just regular steel. I guess I shouldn't have said my case was identical to the one in the picture.

    LOL...I don't think he is looking for a new case, he just wants to mod his case. If you are worried about fans/lights power requirements, I wouldn't worry. Unless you go crazy with tons of fans, most fans/lights require very little amps to run.

    I would recommend this site to get an idea of what is available. http://www.frozencpu.com/ They have TONS of modding equipment.

    Thanks :p couldn't of said it better, as for that site I was just looking to buy 2 LED 120mm fans I think. As of right now I just have 1 stock fan inside without any LED's whatsoever. Also, to me it looks like the fan on the clear panel side of my case (hopefully you looked at the link I provided) has some burnt out LED's since the blue light is oddly distributed around the fan and it doesn't glow very nicely. Are the fans on the side of the case replacable, because if so i'd love to buy a new one to fit there. Also any extensions that you know of adapters I might need to buy for the fans?

    Your case look quite good, but I am more concerned about your PSU, is it the one supplied with the case? If answer=yes, then switch it to a reputable brand fast (Corsair, Thermaltake, Seasonic, Antec etc). 450w or about there should be good. If answer=no, who recommended you that PSU?

    Yes. For the most part any fan can be replaced. Remove the screws holding it in place, unplug it and replace the fan. Easy as pie.

    Yea it is a NZXT 400w psu that came with the case, i've been meaning to upgrade my psu for a while now so I'm on the lookout..any recommendations? I want to go higher than 450w though, maybe like 550-600. Better safe than sorry.
