This rig is meant to be seen and not heard, like an obedient child. The case is 10 inches deep, and extreme effort has gone into making it silent. It is a server, so it has no keyboard monitor, and the drive bay are covered. Superneat wiring and Two 7200 rpm 100G HDs in a mirrored RAID array.
This is now my old system... P3 1GHz, 512MB PC133, GeForce2 MX400 64MB, 52x CD-ROM , 4x8x32 CDRW, SB PCI128, 30GB harddrive. Case mods... older Enlight with one piece outer case cut for side removal door, window on now removable side, 10 inch blue neon placed over reflective tape, 92 mm blowhole in top, front of case vent holes opened to 1/4 inch and slot opened from behind, front back lit by 2 blue 5mm leds, power and drive indicators switched to blue leds, IntelliEye mouse switched to blue led, ribbon cables rounded and covered in white.

DVD, CDRW, LS120, 2 x Maxtor 20GB (RAID), Seagate 30GB, WesternDigital 60GB, Kyro2 64MB graphics, TV-card, SBLive!, Network, Enermax 435Watt.

Watercooled CPU & Chipset (as bypass). Radiator-fans are water-temp controlled. The twolower backside-case fans are disk-temp controlled. The red light behind the front bezel are 36 high current LEDs from a car brake-light (It costs only ~6,50$, ready wired). Next will be a self created 3D-window, with a laser-like LED-beamer behind it, and then I will paint it in winter.
Panasonic vaccum cleaner box, AMD poster tube duct over Super Orb, vid card duct, electrical tape edging strip, 'stealth' mod on drives, only thing screwed into box is PSU and fans, mobo sits on shoebox which holds the PSU.
All the lighting is LEDs from theledlight.com the namebus was a normal bay cover cut out with a piece of plexy inserted with my nick cut out of vinyl and light with blue lazer LED's from glowwire.com as is the glowwire. The specs of the machine are realy not much to talk about PIII 667, 512MB SDRAM, 3D Blaster GeForce card.
Started life as generic atx case. Simply put I can't stand beige SO I primed the whole case and painted it several coats of automotive grade black.... Than wasn't enough so after a few days in the workshop(aka my cellar) my case looks like this. All metalwork was done by hand by me. This is my first mod and certainly not my last! I even ended up making my own baybus/temp gauge combo panel. 1.4ghz T-bird, Thermaltake DragonOrb 3, asus A7m266 mobo, 512 266mhz ddr, 32mb Geforce2 Gts, SB live, 2 ethernet cards, plextor 8x4x32 burner, 12x dvd,Case blower fan,many case fans,2coolPC turbo system cooler, 400w antec PS,Custom switch panel and temp gauge,Clear top window, Oval side window with biohazard etching. Blue liquid neon tube mounted inside window. UpdatE: 5ft neon EL cable added to top along with a baybus.
Was a pet project until the computer hit 4.5gs :) Well it is a 2 year old computer which used to be in a generic Antec brought over to a bigger case for modding fun and expansive space. Specs: 600Mhz OCed at 720. 1 Gig Pc100 Ram. Geforce256 32MB ram OCed to who knows what speed. 1 20 gig harddrive, 2 60 gig harddrives, Totalling 140 Gigs of fileserver fun on a 56k modem :(. 8 80mm fans, 2 blowing out, rest blowing in. A hard-drive cooler used for plain cooling, no harddrive installed there, 8x4x32 CD-RW (planning on getting the Pioneer A03 for $430) and DVD-ROM 8x. What else? A modded computer case which took $300 bucks out of my pocket!!!
