First, I have to say thanks to my buddy JKuhn for mentioning me in this post which is how I found out about it (even a year later).
Jefffydee, you have blue and red cathodes so basically super bright police lights. (I'm not a fan of cathodes, I like LEDs for lighting up the whole case, even RGB LEDs)
However, I'm a big fan of sound activated lighting. I have a sound activated power inverter that powers my lime green EL wire which brings me to my next point. I also love EL accent lighting such as your strips.
You asked what are other popular mods for this case: PSU shroud which you mentioned, LED case feet for underglow lighting, I like to use a specific gauge of super-bright EL wire in the grooves on the front and top of the case. Those are some easier popular mods. Other mods that are not so easy: replacing LEDs on the Power Button and fan controller, removing the HDD cages and cutting the HDD cage supporting wall(s) inside the case for front mount radiator.
I know I'm a bit late on repling to this post, but if you have any lighting questions like how can use these EL strips on my PC, let me know.
Also, I'd love to see how these EL strips turn out. Not sure where exactly inside or outside the case you plan on using them. We love pictures of custom PCs!

Thank you God for setting up my investment.
Of course the lack of some settings there is still some investment in aesthetics but it is far from me I think the procedure is beautiful and perfect.
Greetings, Fuzzion762! I'm very happy for you and I'm glad you are excited about your awesome CM Stormtrooper case. I see you are planning on adding orange EL wire to your case which looks good in your profile pic, but would look even better once finished. I love my own lime green EL wire and sound activated power inverter. If you have any questions about adding EL wire to your case, just let me know. I will answer anything you need to know. I have a few tips/tricks as I've been there, done that.
Hope to see more pics of your PC when completed!
Side note: I haven't been on Overclock.net in a long time. What happened to my rig in my signature and all that stuff?
