Very nice! 9/10

Clean build, cable and water tubing management is exceptional.

I like those led ram coolers you have there, and that oc on the X2 3800 is impressive.

EDIT: I will vote once I can lol

A case needs to be 30 minutes old before you can vote on it (22 min left). :(

Thanks for the Comments!

Thanks for the remarks fellas. I thought the colors were just a little "fruity", but the overall look was pretty unique so I left it. There were no regular lights in the system, it was all UV. And JUDAS3, I got all the lighting (including the plasma ball) from Xoxide.
