no uv or nothing. Just white.
Looks cool though eh?

Also.
This is the controler
NCIX.com - Buy Sunbeam 4 Port Rheobus Fan Controller Kit Black - RHK-BA In Canada.
But the LED's are normally SUPER bright. Not good if its sitting on your desk.
But I Opened the plastic clips and pushed the led's backinto the casing of the controller so they only look bright if you're looking straight into them, but not so bright at any angle past 10degrees or so. Worked pretty well. Easy mod!

Ahh very cool! Guess I should have got the 4 port since it looks that much better! Got the 6 right now and only using 2...
The decal looks good, especially under the light.

Haha yeah
That's not half as bad as it was though. I striped all the tape off the otherday and was able to replace most of it with those few blue zipties. But still taped some stuff down so I wouldn't need an extra arm to get my side panel on. lol.

Yeah I mean I could use a 6 if I put a side fan on and my ram fan and wanted to control the CCFL's with the controler, but 4 was enough for me to control my 4 fans. If I get any more (side and ram) I'll just connect them straight to the mobo, but I have no need for them right now.
I also like the radioactive symbol. You can get them pretty much anywhere that sells auto parts, like canadian tire or Princess auto. They just peel on and off, no goop!

Looks great MAX, all thats needed is a quick shot of black paint to that PSU and it would be complete.

I was thinking about it but I'm hesitant to void PSU warranty, as Antec has a pretty decent warranty for those things.

I may just get a piece of thin 90* aluminum to cover the side and top of the psu and paint it black. that way I get the looks but still have my butt covered if the thing breaks on me.

Just a comment about the sata cables at monoprice. They are of excellent quality and well worth purchasing. I bought about 15 in total, both the straight and 90 degree ones and couldn't be happier.
