    It's looking good. I have had a mod in my head for awhile for the PSU, if you want to try it?
    If you are willing to take your PSU apart then you could take the side off your PSU and cut an oblonged shape out, put black trim on and add some acrilic and maybe a LED. So basicly your PSU will have a window in it to show off the cool little components inside.

    Haha Sounds good.
    I am sure you know what you are doing, but I would advice looking what you will actually see when you cut your window, because I don't think it would look to good if all you saw was a huge heat sink lol. Anyways good luck with it! and i must see pictures! :D

    right ive looked at it and theres is no point in adding a window under the handle for my psu, as it only just sticks out front under the handle, so ive decided to scrap the handle all together and have one huge skylight window on the top, then make a window for ma psu on the top so all can be seen

    that would look cool. The only thing is if you make a window in the top of the PS that is the back side of the printed circuit board (not too much to look at)

    Throw a few LEDs in there and it may look cool.

    aaaa right hmmm problem is i crnt add a window to the side of ma psu coz ive already cut the window in the door an its designed to hide ma psu:D errrrrm ill see what i can do like u said it may still look good with leds ill take it apart and have a gander:D

    an conflicts ive had a few ideas on colours, ive got red led fans on the inside so the colours will be red and black but should i spray the inside all red, black or white what would promote the red leds best but without overdoing it

    I think most will agree that a black inside with red bits (cables,lights etc.) would look nice.

    Yea like MKmods said, All black with hints or red always looks nice, but it is weather you feel it is to generic or not. I don't know how it would look because i haven't seen the inside of your case but maybe the motherboard side, top and bottom all black and then the rear panel and the front panel in a red? Just mix it up abit or go for all black. Totally up to you :)

    haha well i used a dremel tool, not the best recomended thing to use as it is time consuming and a lot harder to get a straight line but with a bit of filling its easy to smooth out anybumps, bankholiday monday tmoz so i crnt buy any supplies but i think i do the inside of the case black, im going off the idea of a top window as it wont be very secure and i no that one drunk nght at uni ill come in and put it through haha so ill be painting the inside black and the silver bits red i still need to thin up some cunning idea for the front im lucky its all smooth and one part if that makes sense so the mesh idea MKmods showed us would work quite well with the case, dnt no if my kills are upto it though :D
