I never like to paint flames on things cause then everyone calls you a flamer... but that's not the point! I like the design. I would not use red, but that's me. Some kind of green on black looks cool. Jmo, so do what you want. looks like you have a good start on ideas.

Green on black does sound cool, or cut out the designs instead and put windows and paint on there w/ green UV paint and put some UV cathods inside. Yea that would be cool.

Did you do that in paint?

I hope you are good with a dremel/jigsaw, and have fun. Looks like it will be good.


(You going to use red perspex?)

Black/Green would be cool but I'm kinda goin with a firey ball theme i guess...


Any Ideas of what i should do with the other side of the case?





I dont know,

Do you guys think it will look okay with the ball thingy over all of the drive bays? or should i flip it horizontaly and have it directly over MOBO? Then the ball thing would be filled by the Handle and i dont know if i like that, Can you buy panels without the handle?
