Smile Press Release

For those who like all the bells and whistles, flash and fanfare it would be a nice addition. Now do this for lighting the tower as well and you have a full disco style case, hehe.

After testing mine and examining the build quality I would unofficially state it should handle more wattage without issue. I feel they keep their rating conservative. I am not suggesting you buy one and run 20W fans because of what I "think" is possible. I just feel that I would not personally worry about going 4-5W over the limit. In my book it is the same as overclocking.

Somewhat gimmicky? Yes. Does it function very well? Yes.

I personally like it better than internal mounted controllers since you can easily access it if you keep your PC under your desk.

In my case it's not, my PC is in my entertainment center behind a door (yes it gets good air flow)
so a display in the drive bays is useless to me. But this is a real option, how long is the cable b1lk1.
