Thank you zmatt!

I'm thinking about a really unique and custom paint for the Antec 300 chassis and panels, I'd to use something different, like one of these House of Kolor Metallic paints

Let me know what you think of these paint samples

Mini Kamen Blue

Royal Blue

Royal blue, the Ice and Kamen blues seem to look pixelated from the mix of color.

Plus royal blue is just the shiz.

Bah! This is looking very much like what I had in mind for my old 900. Interested to see the final product.

Thanks for the feedback everybody!

After seeing this sketch by confusis, for the bit-tech sketch-up contest, I had an idea for doing something similar to his side panel design, but as a top panel. I recieved a 2' x 1' sheet of 1-1/4" thick clear acylic for milling this. Instead of using a single 120mm fan like confusis did, I'm adding 2x 120mm fans in the center in single file towards the rear. The 2x 120mm fans will mount beneath the the cover with the fins going over the fan blades.

15 lbs, 2' x 1' clear acrylic, 1-1/4" thick
