Thank you Steve.
By all means, please rock any and every idea that comes your way. There's nothing I have done here that hasn't been done elsewhere before I'm sure. That's the great part of a being a community. We share.

Anyway, I must say that the level of detail is astounding. My favorite part of the mod has to be all the brushed aluminum work. I love the look of the dark, brushed surfaces, and all the end result is so clean! All the individual panels were so neatly cut and drilled, and they all came together very well- dividing the case into sections like Steve096 said.
I'm sure that you've heard this a thousand times already, but excellent work! Thank you very much for taking the time to post this!!
I have one quick question for you: The LED's you used the light the orange acrylic trime for the side case panels- what color are they? I'm thinking either orange or UV but I can't tell and I don't think you ever told us.
Thank you very much jpz. I've been following your work as well. BlackBox has has been greasing the wheels upstairs for my next build for quite a while now.
As far as the LEDs, they're actually white. I wanted any lighting effects to compliment the Xigmatek fans, which also use white LEDs. The white on the orange gives a very subtle orange (but really mostly white light) glow, which is what I was after. I'm an old fart, and didn't want the office looking like it was on fire.
The only orange LED's in the mod are in the stock sockets for the power and HDD activity on the bezel, but they both indicate HDD activity at the moment.
