that looks awesome!
can you polish the acrylic and still have it keep the mirrored look? Or will it start turning into a fun-house mirror?

haha.. actually, there isn't enough lighting in the case.. but my camera also dims it a bit more too.. so it becomes even darker

i agree i wouldn't want it to be way too lighted.. so just a few nice placed LEDs and it'll be all good. but i'm starting to wonder if what i'm about to do will make it too bright... oh wells, i can always make changes to my design

hmmm.. good question. i'd have to ask though who are more versed with acrylic.



edit: OH! the scratch i'm talking about is on the side panel if you look at the top of the panel, there is a scratch extending out.. i'd have to get it reanodized and that'd cost fifty bucks.. so i'm still being undecided about it.

I really love that mirrored acrylic, looks wonderful! The bolts were a nice touch as well!

Can you get a pic of the PSU that hangs out?

just to give you guys a heads up, i've already started on my lighting scheme BUT the place where i ordered my new leds only gave me 1 of my pink LEDS... -__-,, (cause they ran out of stock) :swearing: again BUT the ball is already in motion, i'll have most of it done just waiting on some smaller UV LEDs so i can help light up the fluid and the 3mm LED holders. then i'll post pictures of it all.

so i should have that done by the end of next week.

I would personally suggest using UV sleeving.. Because the UV SATA cables look amazing . I am imagining all your wires like that

The mirror looks amazing

EDIT : Try finding UV heatshrinks as well. And sleeve every wire in the 24 pin connector it will be epic.

I saw somebody else that sleeved a 24-pin extension cable like that, it looked epic! I told him he should do every wire like that and make a crysis mod

haha... frozencpu has them... hmm..... i'm not sure then.. cause if i'm going to do it like my uv sata cables.... i'll need to two colors... yellow& green, yellow & orange or orange & green. but for the uv sleeving.. i'd have to approve of its color in normal light too.. they tend to be lighter and just doesn't look as good.. so we'll see what happens yea?
