if you want your own custom pimpin crap or w/e, you have to have way more than that....

that is if you want a good system

you'd probably want to start off with an Acrylic case or custom acrylic case, UV cables, UV lighting, modular PSU, etc.

you can probably find everything you want at www.frozencpu.com

And a fishtank on the top. For no reason! lol

What do you guys think about rounded cables? I want to have my system really clean on the inside and 50,000 duct tape looking wires everywhere just looks tacky and makes it hard to clean/install/modify stuff.
