Well, I was talking about the shotgun mod. The shot would leave lots of little holes. That's what would look cool with light pouring out of it.

go for it. I bet you could make it look really nice. But a huge 150mm vent fan at the very top and a big intake fan at the very bottom, and raise it up like 2 or 3 inches with some nice risers that kinda match the wood tone. You'll have some SICK airflow that way...

The fun part would be hollowing the thing out so you could fit parts in there. How wide is it?

Then yea, put power LED on right eye, hdd LED in left eye. Then a power button in the middle of his belly.

...at least that's what [i]I[/] would do

Aight, it's made out of resin, already hollow, and it's 11 inches wide and a nice mobo could easily fit in there. I've been thinking about cutting out the space in between his teeth and get some kind of mesh that matches his color and put some fans behind there. I'm still gathering up stuff so any suggestion will be appreciated. dont hate

I'd suggest a mini-itx motherboard actually, they have really tiny powersupplies and really let you work with the space

I recommend the Biostar TForce 6100, which has overclocking options similar to my Ultra-D, it has onboard video and sound, and it's microatx. Then get the 300w fps group microatx power supply they sell on newegg.

so, umm, err yeah
