I saw this at an auto store and immediately knew what to do with it. I removed the original Asus ROG LED that came with the motherboard and placed the LED and control board inside the air filter. It still pulses and glows. It really pulls the GT theme into the case.

Cool mod with the filter first I have seen that.

Great deal you got on that case since you were able to fix it for relatively nothing.

I made a new change to the case. After hours of running video editing software and games, I discovered the system wasn't venting hot air efficiently through the front panel because of it's close proximity to the fan. The hot exhausted air wasn't venting well enough because there was only 1/4" of space on all sides. I decided to modify the front case panel by adding a hinge and magnet system so that during intensive applications, the hot air could vent unrestricted simply by opening it. The front logo panel is perfect for this because it looks similar to a car hood. This fits the GT theme well. The panel is held closed by using four small magnets. This also increases the venting space when closed from 1/4" to 1/2" when the system is at idle. I added another GT logo to the exhaust fan. The best part is, this modification is not permanent and the original setup can be easily replaced.
