This looks like my original cold cathode setup in my old rig (just blue)before I got my Soprano.<br><br>
I now I have 2x Blue CC's and 2x Green CC's - I had the idea to place the Blues under + beside the mobo on the back of the case and then I fixed the green ones onto my side window.<br><br>
As you can see I think it looks great.<br><br><b>Before - <img alt="" src="http://www.overclock.net/gallery/data/500/medium/DSCS0098.JPG" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br>
After - <img alt="" src="http://www.overclock.net/gallery/data/500/medium/Picture_024.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"></b><br><br>
Give this a go and also just experiment with UV reactive Fans aswell as they can look very cool - I have a UV Super LED I bought to go with my new DFI Lanparty(as it has UV reactive components) But i havent had time to set it up on install the Cold Cathodes on my new setup(well I did but I was too excited to OC my 3000+) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"><br><br>
Also I recommend getting either a cable sleeving kit or some sort of wire management kit <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
Hope this helps<br><br>

Looks great dude! Try out a CMOS Reset Switch, it comes really handy when overclocking...and going just a little too far.<br><img alt="" src="http://img87.imageshack.us/img87/1912/fil2979sa1.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br>
If you need a drill to make a hole i've got one.<br><br>
UV reactive stuff would look awsome, two CCFL, along with a UV Blue sleeved power supply would make that thing really glow.

OP it looks like you could maybe clean out your heatsink, looks like you have some dust in there hindering your temps. Also buy a couple cans of air. And buy some LED fans to spice it up a bit in there.<br><br>

You could beef up the looks and performance at the same time with a new CPU heatisnk <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

I would buy another blue cold cathode and HIDE them. I can't stress that enough, cold cathodes are pretty but kill your eyes when looking directly at them. Try placing them in your case on the bottom and the top where your door would actually cover them so you don't have to look directly at the light. Maybe white cold cathodes as well??? That might look kind of cool, blue n white...

thanks for the advice guys...and i know what you mean about the cathode staying out there, it hurts the eyes like crazy, but the wire on it are so short thats the only place i can put it without making my case look messy...i just bought a uv cathode from newegg. I will have some updates soon.
