Info: Pentium 4 3.4 GHz
Asus GeForce 6800 256 MB PCIexpress
RAID stripe (2) Maxtor 100GB HD
SoundBlaster Audigy 2
2 GIG Corsair DDR2
(hand-me-down LAN-boy case)

12" green neon
12" blue neon
mounted two case fans on HD mount
added blue LED to DVD burner and DVD-ROM

But i'd really like some feedback. I want to spice it up, and make it a little more unique. I'm working on putting two 80mm case fans on the outside with a nice grille, but other than that...i'm sort of lost.

Let me know how to spice it up!

that's a massive window...

everything looks good and stuff but you can always have a lil better wire management.

kewl deal i know wd raptors are faster but will it make that much of a difference in seek time even if they are mirrored thats my main problem i dont know where to put money into two hardrives or into raptors lol i know how to set it up to stripe i can do that but ive never ran a system with it

also what about putting someting on ur window like either a fan or a wicked decal or something maby even tint its all about the mods from factory go wild lol

Going to instal some LED on the front fan to give it more glowy-ness. I lent my dremel to a friend, but i'm getting it back this weekend and hope to get cracking on a window design of some sort.

Thanks for the imput. And i'm not sure about how much faster a stripe set-up is exactly. I'll get some numbers for that soon, I have a few friends who have been asking the same question.

Don't overly worry about dressing up the front. A clean and high impact look is always better in my opinion. You could add some intrest by adding complimentary colored LEDs(red,green,UV) around the edge of your front fan. Just drill some 3/16th inch holes in the side of the fan pointing just like the ones already mounted. Remember use the right resistor and don't piggy back them with the fans power connector if it is plugged into the motherboard.

hey i got the same case so ur in luck, Get a pair of wire dikes cut the metal fan grills out for better airflow, also u can mod the side window with a dremel or jigsaw putting air straight on the video card. I would suggest hiding the wires a bit more and replace the back fan with another blue one and then it will be spiced up. :)

Hey, Foramorm I just posted my LanBoy case modes. Feel free to view. I just put two case fans in ... one blue and one UV, did some sleeving and cable cleanup. Next mod is the hole for power-supply cooling.

Dremel a design into your window. I did have done many a window. To add an extra effect, etch your design a bit deeper than just scratching the plexi and add black light paint mixed with "glow" medium. Black light paint= Spencers in the mall, "glow" medium=Micheals craft store. Just make sure you have a black light in your case that will shine on the window.
