My first case mod need help and or advice

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
i have had my antec p180b for a while now and well i think it just looks boring , so i have decided it needs something. the vision in my head is to put 2 360 rads in it internal and make them discrete as possible . i have also seen windows that are black but you can see light through them and i though it would be cool to use them on the side, front and top with green light behind them. now my problem is i have no idea how to come about this . any advice would be greatly appreciated, i am also open to ideas.

I know on the site they have colored acrylic, but I like the mirror look. Once you put a light behind it, it becomes a little more transparent.

Here are all their choices

I have already cut the mesh from the case it made my fans quite loud.

I am thinking about using the mirror acrylic on the side and putting a 360 rad somewhere on there and covering it with mesh and also putting it on the front door.

Tomorrow ill take pics of my case and make some diagrams of what i have thought of so far.

i have decided on what i am going to do.
replace the side panel with black acrylic where the power supply and drive bays. are, the rest will be mirror acrylic.
put and fit a 360 rad on the side panel and cover it with black mesh.
put a 120 rad where the hdd cage is on the side panel.
find a place for the hdd.
put mirror acrylic on the top.
put a 240 rad on top covered with black mesh.
and green lights of some sort inside.
i am also thinking about doing something to the front door.

anyone have any suggestions?
