Default my case mod, ideas needed.

well seeing as how there are not many case mods lately i figured that i would do a little modding to my antec 1200.

so far i have not done any thing extreme to it, just painted the side and top panel mesh a bright red. and added a few cold cathodes.

but i wanted some input/suggestions as what to do to this case. i was thinking painting the mobo tray a bright red (similar color to my G15 mod) and i was going to look for a different place to mount my MCR 320 as well.

so your input is welcome. i'll have pics up of what i have done soon

well i thought about that too. but i think i would want the fans blue or green. i dont like a whole lot of color/light uniformity in my case. i was thinking some thing biger, like mounting the psu on it's side and rigging up some HDD brackets so i could lay them beside the PSU. then i would have the whole front area to work with.

and i am looking for a single channel fan controller, anybody got any ideas. i needs to be powerfull enough to power 8 fans, one of them being the 200MM fan on top

^ well not much room on the top to put a window with that tray thing.

but i'm just start doing something, paint the inside red perhaps. or if i could find a neon green i would do that too.

Can you post pics of your case the way it is now? Might give some people more ideas if they see what you have to work with.

^ isn't that the 300, not the 1200 anyways? The 1200 doesn't have the flat top:

Newegg.ca - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!

a little harder to put a window in that top....but would still be cool to do one.
