Hi, I've been painting on my case some it started out with me just doing the two little side panels, then I went ahead and done the side 200mm fan. What I want to know is if would look alright if I went ahead and done the front grills the same and the side panels and the side 200mm fan. Keep in mind I'm going to be buying new 140mm fans on top, 120mm fan in the rear, and 200mm fans that glow really bright red. I'm also getting a new heat sink that will glow bright red, along with some really bright red cold cathode lights to illuminate the inside of the case really nice. And for the 140mm, and the 120mm fans on the inside I plan on putting some grill covers to make them look nice and shinny when the lights are on. Also how do you post pics on here so I can show you what I'm talking about.?

put the pics on a picture sharing site (photobucket, imageshack etc) then use the button that looks a bit like a picture when posting to enter the url(s). This will post pictures from the url(s) given

And here it is after words

Feel free to tell me if it looks alright, I've still got to do the sides but I don't have my air brush kit right now( let my friend borrow it) But I'm going to get new really bright led lights, and some case lights to go along with them.

So far so good. I looks pretty sweet. Just remember you want to attact people to beauty of the case not just the lights. too many lights might destracit someone away from the tower as a whole.

Yeah I under stand that I don't really want super bright lights that will blind you I just want people to know that they are there. I'm also thinking about painting the led fans on the top white. So they will have a really cool looking red x on them when they are on and it will make them not so bright. But that's only if I can find some cheap ones because I really don't want to paint and 15 dollar fans. But I'll keep that in mind thanks

Yeah I didn't really do to much as far as wire work goes on it because I'm going to be taking it apart again when I get the new fans, fan grills, lights, and red cable sleeving but I'll post more pics of it when I get it finished. It should look pretty good for a computer that cost less than 1000 bucks and hopefully it will run with the big boys once I put all of the ram back in and a better cpu cooler.
