Hey, I am going to put a top blow hole on my Lian-Li PC-65, it will be a 120 up from an 80. I was looking at a top window kit. And I was thinking what could I do for a mod to my DVD drive? I know of what i do for my PS, but the DVD I dont know.

thanks,

~Will

I dont think it would be a problem, as long as you leave the the top part of the cd holder. I assume the light doesnt interfere with the laser, or someone would have said so already.

No, I dont think so if it does make a difference it would do the same to a CD-ROm right ? I'll try it with my CD-ROM and see if it makes a difference.. I'll post after im done doing it.

Here is a pic of my top window, with the cdrw mounted in the top 5 1/4 bay. I matched the cdrw to the case using brass screws to hold the plexi in place. The entire case is black,gold/brass, and etched windows. Unfortunaly I won't be finished in time to post pics, because im going on a nice 6 month vacation to the middle east. Maybe I'll have enough done to give you a general idea of what it will look like once Im done.

question, putting uv lights in a cd drive, wont that effect the laser's ability to read the cd... or at least diminish its capabilities?

I have tested mine, and have found no probs burning at 24x with it on as seen below. I didn't have any better cdr's to burn at the time.
