Great job, looks like you took your time with the painting and sleeving. The front usb/firewire cover with the red antec logo looks cool, did you paint it with a small brush or did you mask it off? Be sure to post some pics when you get all your hardware in!

i masked off the ANTEC lettering, and yes it has lights, 2-6" UV cold cathodes and 2-12" UV cold cathodes,
and for the AMD logo i put a 3bulb lazer LED.
i put a red case badge light on it and a red vandal power switch in it.
and for the powes supplw cut outs i put 5mm ultra bright red LED's

Dude,
I love the style and it looks like you put in a lot of time on it. I also like the idea of having windows on both sides. As you said though, it would be a pain to hide them. I like the choice of colors too.

thanks for all the good feedback to those who posted.
i worked 2 months on it, it took a wile to find something orignal.
i still haven't seen another case with dual full size windows.
or power supply side cutouts.
now is there any thing you don't like about this case,
or something you really like. please post reply.
i'm getting ready to do another case and i need input.
thanks in advance'

sweet case! May i ask how you got the front vents painted a differnt color? I believe (however i am not sure) that my chieftec dragon case does not have a removable grille there. Did you just do a good masking job or did you somehow remove it?

sweet. I really like the color scheme alot, its nice and original and it does not creat a clash like some i have seen. My black case is telling me to do something to it but i think ill test everything first on my case for my second system since i dont wanna mess up my real case. I think the reason we don't see more white cases around is the stigma associated with beige cases and that transferes over to the white cases (sorry for the psychoanalysis). I really do love the color scheme. I also second the call for UV pics!

the fact that there are'nt many white cases left out there is the main reason i left it white,
i was gonna paint it but, all my friends said leave it white and it will be different cus no one leaves a case white any more.
i wouldn't have ordered a white case in the first place, but i got it
