It worked to an extent. There's a white LED string around the whole circumference of the frame providing most of the light, and a second strip of 5 white LEDs right under the logo. Those extra 5 are drowned out until you turn off the main string and the reservoir light, then you do get some of the affect I wanted. I think to get the shadow I wanted the SS would have had to be way too tall or the light would have to be right under it and then it would be visible with the side panel on.

I'll admit I did pull kind of a fast one on the guy. All of the lights are user-controllable except those 5. Those are on all the time. smile.gif

Oh cool. I thought it was a vinyl decal...

Yeah, the backplate always makes the whole thing look better I think. This one is mounted with simple outdoor carpet tape. May sound ghetto but Scotch makes some tape that will damn near pull your skin off. It's perfect for this sort of thing where you don't want to see any fasteners and it's a lot easier and less permanent than glue.

In this case it's a rectangle cut to fit the back of the case with a large notch in it to go around the standoffs and the CPU cutout. It goes under the motherboard by maybe 1/2" on three sides.

Sorry, which grommets are you asking about? Where the cables go through the backplate?
