Paint obviously. I don't remember how good the cable management is in the case (its coolermaster, so I am willing to bet its decent).

Do some UV reactive paint theme inside maybe. And if you are handy with the tools, maybe grab yourself some plexi and do something in that department. I personally love Omaryunus' GPU cover plates.

Do a back to the future mod That'd be cool.. If its the silver one it'd work awesome.(Do they come in silver? If not, paint it silver haha).. Grab some rope light and an oldish electrical box and make a flux capacitor, a Mr fusion on top, and some black fins on the the back. Add some stuff around the edges of the window like the delorean has around the wheel wells. That'd be pretty sick I think!

I would paint the inside black. I am doing that to mine as soon as I can. Looks much better. Window is always solid. cutting out some of the plastic honeycomb behind the metal grills increases airflow A BIT and also allows you to put your two top exhaust fans between the top of the case and the case lid, which creates more space.
