Looks good man.

One thing: try not to have cathodes (other than UV) visible - for example, try to hide them at the bottom, or at the top.

It creates a softer look, and doesn't blind you. :)

Try going along the back of the case, where the PCI cards and the case handle thing is - that might be an ok spot. :)

I agree it's a bit blinding! Maybe there is room for the cathode toward the front next to hds?

Tried that... the HD's block too much light, so it just looks like the corner there is glowing. The best spot is in that back area, or on the top or bottom. :)

Does anyone have a case with 2 different color cathodes in it? Or does anyone have a pic of such a case? I definately want green, but I dunno if the colors would conflict too much if I put a blue in mine. I know they go well together, but would you be able to tell them apart, or would the colors just blend together in a bad way?
