    I dunno. Sometimes the best effect is just the lights from the motherboard, RAM, and fans coming through an etched window...it catches on the Frosting...

    Yea I did the same, makes my case weight a ton. I consider it more a theft deterrent than sound isolation because I dont think it really does anything! I dont see a burglar wanting to run off with my 40 pound massive case lol

    Heres some pics I just took. Still lots to do on this aging build, but I dont feel a real need since its still fast enough for me.

    LOL :) ohwell my comps a tank now, sucks when I want to haul it out from under there its a beast :p its made from thick alum and steel lol


    Edit: I mainly got the sound dampening figuring it would help keep my disc drives quieter but thier still quite loud.

    meh my pc is noisy but i dont care, but id rather it be noisy than get hot, i have 2 profiles in CCC, gaming and desktop, in desktop, its pretty damn quiet and in gaming mode its fairly noisy but cool, if im gaming i either have my headphones on or my speakers turned up loud so its a win win situation, until a good silent cooling solution comes out at the right price(key factor), this will do me just fine :D

    Timeline of my Antec 182 Gunmetal black

    My Antec case has gone thru some changes in the last year.. here all stages it was in:

    1)With my old 939 socket DFI Lanparty mobo and a crappy GPU

    2)With my DFI Blood Iron which i killed with one of kexxx´s bioses and a even more crappier GPU

    3)With my current DFI Dark P35 on Air

    I wanted to try water cooling to understand it, but I've always had success with air. I figured I'd get a nice loop with current equips, and then resell all of the parts after my experimentation. So far no problems. I loved the experience but for the rest of the term I have with this PC I want it on air :)

    I'm in the process of putting her all back together with a 4870x2 and a different case. I've got pics of a practically identical system in an Antec 900. Same ram, same mobo, E8600 E0, but a different PSU. Hey! While I'm at it that's where my rigs go. 22" flat screen and a vinyl made to look like wood :D
