    Dude! This is freaking sweet! I saw the storm vid and I agree with the epilepsy comment :laugh:
    I have an idea with the lights though. Instead of having it constantly flash, What if you were to
    have it hooked up to your HDD in some way, that whenever it reads/writes, the light flashes on?
    Just an idea.

    I really love the idea of the HDD LED activity I did that for my DARKNIGHT rig but this flashing light are AC 110v so so I can't make it work with the DC power of the PSU...

    Here is the Vid in case you haven't see it yet!!!

    You might want to check your photobucket, looks like you passed your capacity, doesn't show any images of your build now.

    Here are more pictures of the front...

    In this chapter we're going to disassemble the lightning machine to see how we are going to connect that to the PSU and move the controller to the front of the case.

    The Storm Cage ver. 2.0
    The first design was nice but it didn't let the air from the 2x 140mm fans go into the cage to create the chaos I was expecting so I decided to cut the front and add something I found at a local 0.99 cent store.

    - Controlling Mother Nature
    - Temp Test

    Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_1cUxXPf8dY

    Initial Temp 70F (Warm water was used to make this Test)
    15 Min (After): 68F
    30 Min (After): 67.5F
    45 Min (After): 67.1F

    Without any special setting or Hardware, just the The Storm Cage, the Pump and the NMC CPU Water Block.

    So now I'll explain how the Storm Cage Works...

    First it takes the water from the bottom of the Cage and distributes it through the loop... Then it hit the Rain Chamber where the water goes down as drops... then this drops are cool down by the strong winds from the 2x 140mm Fan in the front...

    So is like having Mother Nature inside a Computer Case. I can adjust the rain frequency and the wind velocity so I can control the Storm inside the Cage...

    Hopefully that make sense to all of you!!!
