post #6511 of 15204
hey so with xmas coming ive been asked to put together an xmas list. i just built my first rig with a black phantom and im wondering if you guys could recommend some things to trick out my rig. i have a cnps9900max blue cooler so im trying to stick with the black/blue color scheme. i know one thing i want is the windowed side panel. aside from that what kind of lights and such would you recommend? i want to sleeve my psu eventually but im going to get mdpc-x and asking relatives to order internationally seems a bit too far.

tl;dr recommend case lighting/accessories for gift ideas ~$0-$30 range

NZXT sleeved LED kit.

Great way to make ambient light instead of all the light coming from fan led's.

Got my new case from the ups today! Hope I can be added to the club once I finished my build. Still need lots more hardware to buy.
The new case is on the left and on the right we have is the dented one.

And and quick question guys
The new case has this blue marker on one of the usb connectors:
384


The old one:
308

So what's that blue marker on the sub on my new case?

Hmm if i was to do this what kind of paint would I need? What did you do with the grilles and such? Do you recommend doing it? I will be going away for long periods of time every couple months so I would just keep my computer wrapped in a garbage bag or blanket for months on end. I don't know how much of a dust/fingerprint magnet it is and how clearly scratches show, but if they do, I may just save the trouble and get the white.

Awesome! So from this point on do you think newegg will be shipping only models with USB 3.0? I think when I purchase one I'll make it clear that I would like them to send me one with a USB 3.0, if they'd actually hear me out, well I'm not sure.

Haha lets hope so. Either that or I got really lucky. Update us when you receive the case!
