According to an article I read on bit-tech, the clear case showed no signs of electro-magnetic interference (the source of radio waves, etc)

Personally I'm more concerned about EMI interfering with my tv than I am about it giving me cancer . I certainly don't think it's anything to worry about though, unless you start to notice your hair falling out or your urine turning strange colors. Then maybe it's time to consult a physician

yup, they do look good. sometimes, you'll just find yourself looking at the case and its inards for no reason and totally forgetting that you're playing a game or surfing the web.

are planning to mod your box? or just buy a premodded clear case?
