Lighting?

Cathodes are out of style :P

You should look into a soft white LED light.... maybe get LED strip and put a white panel over it to diffuse them a lot so you get a big glow without being able to see the source as much?

I'm picturing almost like a frosted panel covering the lights pretty much...

I see a slow pulsating deep red lighting the whole inside of the case ( thinking a row on top and a row on the bottom ) i know nothing of lighting so i won't pretend to say what kind you should use. jmo

I would go for LED lighting. Not a fan of CCFLs personally.

Ya I'd go with LEDs over cathodes. White and red would be good.

Awesome work Bill!!!!

A suggestion though....the front looks a little plain. Take the Beaver Mascot and put it where the Corsair Logo was. That will make it look less plain at the front. Just an opinion though.

Still waiting for the price that I asked for earlier....LOL!!!!!!!
