I also decided to upload a pic of the interior. Didn't look like I had done that since I upgraded my PSU and changed my GTS 450 for 2 GTX 460s. Sorry for the poor quality pics and the dirty case.

P.S. I'm making new PSU and HDD covers so thats why they are missing.

Very nice nitrous!!!! thumbsupsmiley.pngspecool.gif Now, break out the 'DustBuster'!!! thumbsupsmiley.png

My scout took a hit recently, a whole bunch of parts seemingly died overnight, must've been an angry ghost I guess tongue.gif

Anyway I decided to take this opportunity to upgrade a few things along the way so here's what I got:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Intel i7 2600k
ASUS P8Z68-V PRO GEN3
2 x 1TB Western Digital Caviar Green
Corsair H60
LG BH-10 Blu-Ray Drive
Cooler Master Sickleflow 120mm Red LED Fan
Corsair TX750M PSU

400

And heres it all setup with shiny new case stickers tongue.gif

400

The sickleflow fan is mounted in the spare 5.25 bays so that hot air isn't coming out the front into my face.

specool.gif stuff 'Shadow'!!!! doh.gif man, having your hardware dying like that sucks... rolleyes.gif What can you do!!!
Well, it pushed you into a up-grade...

Over the last few months, a growing number of folks have been very happy with my offerings.

Most of all, I'd say check the LED count compared to the price. You'll find most offer up to 18 LED's to the foot for some relatively big money. 36 LED's per foot (3/inch) not only doubles the count, but gives a smoother, brighter, more vibrant look -and for less $!

On the orange note, the factories label the strips yellow or orange, but they are the same color and it's really more of a gold/amber to be accurate.

Also on the color note, I've had people asking me if my red is a 'dark red'. Well, if you want dark anything, you turn the lights off or dim them.

There seems to be a misunderstanding between pigment red and photon red. With light, you adds colors, with pigment you subtract. So (photon) Red+Green+Blue makes white pixels on your monitor. Add those same colors with pigments and you get a mucky brown.

White is the presence of all light frequencies, but the absence of all pigments. Whereas black is the absence of all light , it is the presence of all pigments. So you can't get a 'blood' red light, you can get a blood red pigment. And while there are different frequencies of red light, in manufacturing, it is much more limited by technology and market forces. So red led strip is red led strip, but red CCFL's or EL products will be a different red than each other by some degree. They are unlikely to match. That's the tech limitation. The market limitation is how much demand for how many colors can there be?

That being said, there are RGB led strips that can get some range of red going. (Sorry to pick on red, this is true for any colors available.) The tech limit on RGB strip is that they only come in 18 or less LED's/foot, they come in different types (some strips are consecutive red and green and blue leds and others are true RGB leds) and have a a big variety of controllers and options. For these reasons, primarily the low LED count, I don't carry them, but understand the versatility they provide. Once RGB strips are truly RGB and have 36 LED's to the foot, I'll stock them. But I digress.

With any led strips, I'd best describe them as 'lightsaber' color. That is, you have a central 'white' core with a strong color halo that falls off into obscurity.

Most importantly, look around and do the research. I was so disappointed with what's available for the price, I started my own company to get people the best prices and out there with the important computer accessories needed to get the job done. For more direct info, you'd have to pm me.

I'm thinking of doing one of two things with my SS:

1. Do a minor mod (Just paint mainly.) to a Mass Effect N7 theme. Problem with this being my mobo is black and blue, which doesn't go with the black, red and white I would use for the N7 idea.

2. Change my fans to blue LED fans and go with a black, blue and white theme. Anyone have any suggestions on cheap yet decent blue LED fans? The stock fans work decent for me, so I would like to keep the new fans at their performance level or better at less than $10 a fan. I don't see the point in spending $30 on a case fan. lol

the reason why i got the 2 fan controllers on my case is that the nzxt sentry 2 did not work with my fans as it make that buzzing noise that only cost me £5 used in the UK and then got the nzxt sentry mesh as it works well with my fans that made no buzzing noise and i kept the nzxt sentry for temperature reasons.
