My Ultimate 2nd Gaming Mod Project Need Opinion!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Okay I decided that on the month of July I will begin building my 2nd pc but this time to make it 100% modded. I plan on wasting around 1500 dollars on this project and plan on opening my own pc building shop in my town since my friends and family members who paid me to build and fix their pc's said i did a preaty good job while saving them money and still making a profit. So I was thinking of going to Frozen CPU.com and buy HyperCube series case (blue of course) and need to know how to make a see thru psu with my own blue glow in the dark cable to put in it. So what ya think add some ideas to the mix,

P.S. It's going to be a SLI system with a XFX 7800GT (the neon green one and modding it with some blue leds instead of green or maybe white) and wonder what goes with blue. Like Blue/green, Blue/red, Blue/white, Blue/Purple, etc.

Heres the case-

See thru - there are DIY kits sold in many places. The glow, use either LEDS/EL wire/Cold Cathodes. Easy as pie.

If u want details, you can pm me.

:| What do u mean by now advanced enough? u screw off the original cover... and screw on the one in the kit... A child can do it. Inside u can splice one of the 5v/12v lines and put a dual cold cathode...like 5 incher inside there with the converter fitting in right there, connected right to a 12v line. But if thats 2 advanced for u for now, just take a regular molex and shove it back in the box, and connect it to the cold cathode adapter like it was meant to be. Soldier the 2 wires for the on off switch of the cold cathode adapter, or at least tie it together with bare wire, so it turns on every time u turn ur machine on. On drill a hole on the back of ur psu and place the switch there. Good luck. I sent u a pm on that screen btw.
