I will admit that I have modded my case to the extreme w/all the bells, buttons and whistles. The funny thing is, I NEVER turn on the case lights unless I am showing my rig off to someone for the first time.

Am I the only person that doesn't use their case lights except on those special "my dad can whip your dad" moments?

It wasn't a lot of money or time to do the mod, but other than bragging rights, it serves no real purpose.

My advice to anyone thinking about case light modding is to just get a good game instead, unless you have a uber ego like me, lol !

I leave mine on during the hours of the evening.
My room is dark except for the green glow emitting from the side of my tower.
I always turn it on while gaming, or anytime someone is over at the house.
It blows their mind lol

I turn mine off, except when late night gaming, and when bragging/showing off my rig.

just out of curiousity...what is the average life span of a cold cathode bulb? (that's the main reason I keep it off)
