So, I just ordered my Christmas present. A new Antec Nine Hundred. I want to do a lot of modding. Any ideas?

I want to paint the chassis inside a nice green or purple color. I'm going for green and/or purple cold cathodes. I want to do some wiring mods as well.

Reason for the purple/green color? Trying to make it almost "alien" like. Might get a Danger Den water cooling setup to make it feel more like my computer is alive. Like it's got blood. Was also gonna get some UV pens and do little designs on the motherboard, and then put dark lights in there.

why dont you do the inside like a silver to reflect the green or purple

Well, it was going to be more of a metallic green or purple. Very shiny. Some what reflective.

Like this, just purple or green.

Here was an idea pbasil1 and I had. But get some tribal designs and use those as stencils, may work in your situation. BUT if I were going for the same look you are here is what I would do. In the 900 you have the 5.25 bays that go all the way to the bottom paint those the purple you want. The rest of the case I would paint green. You can get a clear UV reactive coating that you could coat everything with. Then just get some UV CCL lights. Get you some of the LED spot lights and shine them straight down inside the case. See if you can find green ones that way they will look like tractor beams. Tint the side glass with a slight smoke tint. I wouldnt go water cooled on a 900 it just doesnt seem like a good fit. Stick with air cooling. Asus makes a sick new cooler that would go great with your build.

That cooler would go great with a Alien type mod or theme. I have a head full of ideas so if you wish to PM if you like my ideas I would be happy to help.

I like that cooler.

I would go with green--light coke-bottle green and then stencil over the entire case in and out with Invisible UV reactive paint (check PerformancPC.com ) so that it looks normal until you hit it with black light.

Sppoked Junglist has a good FAQ on the UV pen mod. I am sheathing my next rig with relective Carbon Fiber sheathing from AC Ryan...should look a bit jinky.
