it wouldn't have mattered anyway, I knew everyone there...

oh, (slightly off topic) when I bought my case, it had blue lights on the front and psu, and it was supposed to have blue lights in the side window... but for some reason they were a lighter aqua/greenish color...

so.. i decided to use the blue lighted fan from my psu for my side panel, but it was sauderd to the chip, I simply cut it off, and sauderd a new cord to make it work... but after I got it out and cleaned, I discovered that the fan was in pretty bad shape... two of the four support pieces for the center were broke, and one of the lights no longer got power... so... I de-sauderd the four lights carfully, then removed the greenish lights from my side panels fan and then sauderd the blue lights to it..., it looks professional... lol

and that other fan still works, but without lights..., what should I do with the four old lights?

Low end thermaltake PSU's (sub-$80) use very ****ty parts and won't be much better than the one than blew on you. the forton source would be much better, and it dosn't have any ugly lights.

The sleeved cords don't mean anything. You can sleeve them yourself if need be:

I wouldn't skimp of the PSU, if you want a solid PSU spend the $70 or so and go with an Antec.

I think it was a powersurge or something, the extention cord I had my pc pluged into was the first to go..., then the psu followed soon after...
I wish I had brought my surge protector, lol, like I said, "short notice"

?

you mean nobody showing up?
most of the people in my school hate dances anyway.. usually people only show up for prom...

I get paid for djing them so 'obvously, I show up... and (to add more to the story) the faclty couldn't make up their mind as to have a dance or not..., and when they decided to, the good speakers weren't available... so we had to improvise...
