Hey guys!

I need a little help with what the Dark C0d3r case-mod theme will be, I'm pretty clueless on what color(s) I should use!!


So if anyone can suggest a theme, please do so on this thread!




THANKS OCN!



Well I've decided the case colour theme!

A friend suggested purple and black, so... purple and black!

PURPLE & BLACK



Yummy

Subbed, can't wait to see the thing done

It's like it's made for modding, has the pure minimum for a good case, yet there's a lot things you can do to it ^_^

Okay I've gotten around for some progress.

Oh by the way, I will be now posting images on Google's Blogger, simply because it has a better interface and I can upload more than 40 images... yeaaaaaaa.

So yea just go on it for updates.
Go on the left panel for the list of updates, they would have "DarkC0der" written their titles.

Thanks guys.
