Ive thought about puttin the lights around the fan grill, but not to sure how it would look.
And yes, folks, this is the maker of that awesome XS GRILL BTW!!
JBell was supposed to contact you about taking over the XS Grill deal. Apparently he had not?
So far I hadnt gotten a real large response to them. There are a few that are interested, but theres maybe 1 or 2 folks that are interested in getting 2 or 3 of them. So Im not to sure as of yet. If you would be willing, I was going to bother you when I had a few extra bucks to make me a couple more and pay you for this one here.

Thanks for the thought, but that's Reddeathdrinker's handiwork. ;)

He did a damn good job of putting that together, IMHO. :D

Excellent idea!

I have one case that is so huge I put 2 computers in it, but I never thought of modding two case together to make a cube!

Looks great so far man, and for the led chaser- if it was me I think I'd lean toward that spot above the intake fans...

For the LED chaser, what if you ran it up and down the middle of the case, where you stuck them together.

If it's a red LED chaser, slap it on the bottom of the front and call it K.I.T.T. [cue rim shot] I kid, I kid... Seriously though, that's an excellent idea. If I were any good at welding, i'd make a plate that covered the crack between the tops of the cases and put a couple chrome tube handles on it. :D

Kinda what I thought about fishy, just not to sure how it would look. Still debating. heh.
Its a blue LED chaser, almost a perfect match to the CC you can at least partially see in the pics. I thought about doing the welding, cuz I can weld! However, actually getting a welder of some sorts is a totally different story! Thats the main reason I just went with it as you can see it now.

Well thats a few more bucks then I can afford on adding in at the moment. Ive thought about doing one thing there similar to that. Take the XS grill and going around it with the LED chaser.
