I like the case design, especially the window. I wouldn't stealth the drives, but instead color match them to the case. I don't personnally like stealthed drives. :p

You like my latest project?

I've modded my own case.. A RaidMax Scorpio 668 with a side window. I've installed 2 Blue LED 80mm Intake fans on the side window. 1 LED 80mm Exhaust Fan in the back plus a Blue UV PCI Exhause Module. I have mirrored Dragon grills on the fans. I have a Red LED Cannon in the front panel shooting straight up from the bottom which has a nice effect. I have Sunbeam Fan Controller that lights up pretty good in a 5.25 bay. I installed Red LED lights in ALL the Molex Connectors. If you havent seen these Molex LEDs you should check them out. http://www.xoxide.com/firefly-red.html They REALLY make a nice addition to the inside lighting effect of your case. I have all my wires sleeved out in Blue UV Techflex wire sleeving. I have 2 Blue 12" Liquid Neon Cathode Lights in the bottom of the case with 2 Logisys Jumbo UV Lazer LED's. These are cool as hell too.. http://www.xoxide.com/logisys-jumbo-led-uv.html I'm in the process of installing a mirrored window I bought from Crazypc.com in the top of the case with a 80mm Exhaust fan. I'm also going to buy a Kingwin UV BLUE Power Supply. They make some super sweet PSU's. If I can ever get my digital camera to work I'll take a picture and send it in....YES, I love modding my case!! :)

Hey joeyll: Your RaidMax mod on the Scorpio 668 case sounds great. It would be nice to see some pictures. The trick I found with digital cameras and low light conditions (to capture the cool interior lighting effects) is to have the camera on a camera stand. It has to be stable when you press the shutter button. The aperature will be open a few seconds (maybe 3 seconds max) and you cannot hold the camera steady enough with just your ands for that duration.

Check out the recent mods to my "printer-to-computer" mod (it was in the 02/2005 issue of Maximum PC as ROTM); I added a blower fan to the top panel so I could keep all the panels closed when playing games. Before this I had to have the panels open to allow for enough airflow.

This machine now runs the Vista Beta 2 (from a few months back) and it has a PNY 7800 GS AGP videocard to go with the Athlon XP 2500+ that is overclocked to 3200+ specifcation. I need more RAM though, as I'm too cheap to spring for two sticks of tasty 1 GB PC3200 DDR SDRAM right now. I'm running two 256 MB sticks and a 3rd 256 MB stick which defeats the dual memory channel configuration but it does get me over 512 MB. Vista needed more than 512 MB. ;)

Here are some pictures of the purple illumination cold cathode I installed behind the blower fan:
