Give the case a theme of some sort.

If tools are not an issue, laser cutting always looked pretty darn good in my opinion.

Hi.

Since you have the tools, you could attend to the airflow. Make a blowhole, an intake on the front (if there isn't one already), and make a window/intake on the side panel.

That would let you show off your hardware as well as help it remain coooool....

I've always thought it would be cool to have a case be pitch black and then in random spots around the case have some strobing LEDs.

thanks for the help, i'll prolly paint it, now idea what colors, maybe some sort of metal flake shade... cooling will prolly play a big part, would wanna have lots of spots for fans as water cooling seems a little too much for me right now since i've just started overclocking... i really like the strobe idea, but i dont see how i would make a case pitch black, install stobes but still them through a plexi window

Yay!

Looking forward to a build log from you.

umm... if I may be so bold... when planning out airholes for fans I would account for 120mm fans (or larger) as you will get more airflow and less dba than with their smaller siblings.
