The only things to watch out for is: Power Supply Wattage and make sure no paint gets onto your components.

a 'cool' case is subjective to the creator. Be creative

Cut holes, put either a fan, light, or plexiglass behind it

try using a small flame torch that might work and make it look good cause the edges will be brownish if you don't paint over it. if do that remember to do it so the flame is small
