What would be sick is "AMD" Across the middle of the octagon :D, case looks freaking amazing though. My hat off to you sir as you are a master of the custom cases.

Thank you, bizarre hmm. I was having doubts if I could get the finish right, but 4 times lucky




So I decided to do a little playing around, just because.. the power and hdd led's have been on my mine from the get go. Where oh where to put them. Now another idea I have had from the start was those spotlights you see shining up a buildings wall, so how about combing both well some searching gave me the how to, so here is my version of that. Now there is still 7 to go, but this will give you an idea of where I am going. Will use 3mm leds wired up to the motherboard power led as the signal source with 12V from molex.
