That's a really unique case. I looked at it for a while before I went with my Ultra.

They make a green version too, don't they? To my brain, that's just taunting you to perform red LED conversion.

Keep us posted. I'd be interested to see what you do with it.
Yeah i wish i'd known about the green case because im so sick of blue ... i've thought about an LED conversion, it'd be pretty tricky though, in particular the part on the door that lights up the sides (if that makes sense ).. But i'd be tempted to go with red i think. That combined with the mesh or some tinted acrylic would give it a more mean look hehe.

When i did buy this i didn't have modding in mind, i just love it's features, the swinging down mobo try makes it so easy to install things and the clips etc for all the drives make instaling things a breeze. But i really would like to make it more unique than what it already is ... Also guys can anyone think of a good project name? I'd probly have something to do with a smilodon (type of tiger thing i believe) which is what this case is named after.

Blowholes 4tw...
Yeah i've never had one of those before, but i'd like one. I'll need to buy a holesaw though. Does anyone think a blowhole would disrupt the ariflow or would it work out better?

All it could to in my opinion is increase airflow and help temps...

And I might be wrong here but for the hole itself all you would need would be a drill and a dremel...

A blow hole would very nice considering that it has an 80mm fan in the back. My friend has the exact same case, so if you ever consider replacingthe front 120mm fan it's gonna be hard.

Well a blowhole it is then

Yeah a i've got a dremel and a drill, i can do it with those, although i doubt it'd be the best outcome using that method. Ill try it on a few old cases and see how i go. If not i'll buy a holesaw. Im gna need one eventually anyway.

Yeah i've had a look and it seems a nuisance to swap over the fan at the front. I really want the colour red though hehe. Blue's overused, i really like green too. If it turns out i cant do an LED convertion im going to go with a blue and green theme. And yeah i suppose if theres a 120mm intake and only an 80mm exhaust, a blowhole would really help.

Ok so a quick recap of ideas so far:

- Blowhole (maybe have a couple of nice mesh vents either side?)
- Replace acrylic with mesh, do to the otherside also
- Stealth dvd drives, the buttons for these i could have in the mesh side panel
- Possible LED conversion (from blue to red)

Any other ideas?

Thanks to everyone so far
