First question. - I don't have a fanbus, that's a temperature display.

Second question. - That's my computer stand, the LEDs light it up. And they aren't under plexi, that is glass.

i like all the blue. the lights in front look like little tendrils or mandibles extending from the case. sweet. maybe get some of those wires under control, but other than that, very solid, good job. i like the color of the case. (is that some kind of cutting board it is sitting on? i know you said it is glass, but my old comp used to sit on a cutting board so it could slide on carpet... just curious)

Yes, it's two glass cutting boards with feet to dig in. I'm getting ready to put in a 120mm blowhole in the top.

Nice start on the modding.
I've always liked the colors of blue/black or silver together. My suggestions, somtime when money isn't tight, get a better blue cathode and some uv wire sleeving.
I see you like case badges too.

Well, I have a red cathode to go along with the blue. But the inverter caught fire. (Hmmm..) I prefer the tape on the cables because I don't have to remove pins.

I thought about taping.. But eh, It's not for me. Some people have their own opinions. My opinion in general, Do what you have to do. :)

Nice case. I like it. Only thing I think should change it that tape on the wiring. But, hey, I've done that before. I am getting mine sleeved for a better look.

It's a temp display that hasn't been totally hooked up yet. I had it hooked up, but it's a hassle.

as others have said, get over your fear of removing pins, and get some sleeving on those....not only does it look crappy, but once you take it off, all of your cables will be sticky, and if you leave it on too long, it will be inpossible to clean them/make it look nice.

and are the LEDs just sitting under the glass? if you want the glass to glow, you have to drill a hole into the side of the glass, and fill it back up (once the LED is in there) with superglue.

your ram is populated in the wrong spot (supposed to go outside to inside)

why do you have a dvd player, and a dvd RW. you can play dvds on a dvd RW drive....

and, why isnt the barton overclocked?

well i can see why he has a dvd and a dvd rw drive

first of all both can play cds

second of all most dvd rw are cd rw as well

so to make copies of dvds or cds in this case he can just do it from cd to cd or dvd to dvd without having to copy an image to his computer then copying the image to a disc...

but i still agree on sleeving the wires... other than that i think it looks great.

I'm an n00b... but I thought that you could easily overclock Barton 2500+ to 2.4 ghz on AIR? Is this true? If so why don't you do it?
