    2x 12cm Blue LED fans modded to bottom of case blowing cool air to graphics card (1x Thermaltake with fan speed controller and 1x Generic)
    1 Red/Blue Neon, 1 Blue Neon, 1 UV Light, 1x Green Neon
    3x UV Reactive SATA Cables
    2x 12cm Blue LED 90CFM Coolermaster Fans on CPU Cooler

    XBOX 360 Controller (x2)

    Mods:
    Lots of Neons, Fans, HDD's with as much cable management as possible without using a Dremel for cable routing as of yet. [Update] Dremeled holes need to update pics, using cable ties for the blue neon down the bottom of the case now instead of being duct taped to the fans. Also modded the video card Dremeling out the back bracket for extra air flow which really works.

    Any suggestions are welcome. Took me a while to get it to where it's at today, and considering no full custom drilling or cutting has been performed and the amount of stuff in there, I am quite happy with the end result. Sorry about the bad image quality, was shot with a phone camera. Various benchmark results of this system can be found here --> http://forums.techpowerup.com/showthread.php?t=126696 .

    Big Plans

    Yay, I now have a Dremel of my own, the ultimate case mod tool, Dremel, when in doubt fabricate lol Got rid of the duct tape on the bottom neon is now pro looking, secured with cable ties via 4 new hidden holes via the Dremel. Gonna be doing some mass drilling and cutting for me Core i5, look forward to the results, aiming to see no cables or wires when I'm finished except for the stuff directly at the motherboard.

    Some nice components in your rig. What Monitor is that? I didn't see it listed. Is it a T240HD?

    u hav not goodn engrish so ur vote don't count if u can't even speel poperly n hav poper gramar lol Generally that's what computers are - parts in a case, I've done it in a style, has got neons 2 of which you can only see light from and not the neon itself which I was going for. Please people, positive votes offering advice where possible or detailed, constructive criticism is welcome. That or your malicious votes will be reported. Keep it clean, not treat them mean.

    Nice PC m8 :) Have you considered selling the 4x 1GB sticks of RAM and getting 2x 2GB sticks instead? Ive always found 2 sticks to be more stable than 4 sticks (when overclocking etc) :)

    Making it into Windows at 4.7GHz on Air Cooling, and am doing runs on 4.5GHz through 3DMark Vantage, my board seems to like the 4x 1GB Sticks :) Also running the 2102 P5Q Modded BIOS by KET over at Xtremesystems, can even getting it posting at 5.0GHz, would love some water or Multiphase cooling but alas I simply do not have the funds. My CPU and heatsink isn't even lapped and is just using stock thermal paste, just got myself some IC Diamond Carat 7 thermal paste, and am hoping to get the Prolimatech Super-Mega CPU Cooler when it comes out, then lap both that and my CPU and see what I can get, with that combo and my new thermal paste :-D

    As I said, Video Card bracket now modded for optimal air flow through the stock bracket and fans down the bottom of the case have to be modded there.
