    Why not do something similar to Rendermandan's setup.. colored plexi is lit up, then a piece of black plexi (or some other material) is overlayed to give a glowing edge effect. That will also break up the blue on blue appearance.

    I agree with Luke, the individual tridents look better but in my opinion would look better still with some thin black plating over the front to give the glowing edge effect. That sounds like a great facade on a blue case.

    Yeah, I think I'm leaning towards that idea as well. And maybe the blue on blue isn't such a bad thing after all. With some white led's backlighting the tridents, that should be enough to set them off without introducing another color to the mix.

    Ok, how bout this:



    I kinda took both versions and made this one. After seeing it lit up with the led fan, it was still too hard to see the separate trident shapes. So I introduced a solid background between them. But instead of just the circle, I made it into a tear drop shape to be consistent with the water theme, and then worked in the power/reset buttons.

    So the tear drop shape will be polished aluminum with trident shapes cut out of it, and the transparent blue tridents will be inset. The light from the led fan should provide the backlighting for the tear drop, and maybe even help the tridents glow a bit as well. If not, I can always add a few led's behind the tear drop to help out.

    What do you guys think?
