The Wires are a bit messy I know...I've been doing allot of HDD recovery for peeps lately and I'm to lazy to neat'n it all back up...but I will. The Window was cut out with a jig saw and edges cleaned up (very little) with a Dremel.

There is also a white strobe light inside the case, but it didn't show here.

The bottom pci cover plate is my fan and light controls Right is on, left is off. They don't get bumped @ Lanparties here!

The one thing missing in these pics is the 3 foot tall boom that hooks to the back of the pc, it's topped with a blue runway light (yes a real one) it also has a strobe light in it. It's not on cause it's hard to fit under my desk with it on. I'll see if I can't get some pics of it up some time.

Just so you can see some of what I've done...

Thanks for stopping by!

For a bit Of Trivia.....

What is the Symbol that is cut out of the side of this case?....Post your best guesses!!
