Default Making a PC shine.

If I have a plain case, with a side-panel window, can I add stuff in there to make it shine? Like little bulbs in there or something? How does one light up the inside of the case.

LED fans, Cathodes, etc....

Pretty much anything that is LED will light up your case, I have 2 LED blue case fans and my whole inside just shines

He wants a case that has lights in it

Simplest thing is to buy a reg. case with a side panel and light it up

yeah as counter-strike said, you just need some cathode lights for LED fans in there and it'll light up

^ Rofl.

LED fans would probably be the best thing to get, Its a two in one.

Lights and cooling.

I looked into modding my case, "ThermalTake Shark" with Electric Blue professional Autobody paint. I was planning on painting the front door and the molding around the honeycomb sidepanel windows. But, after getting the estimates... I decided that $300.00 was far too much to spend on some painting...

Although from what my research discovered, it's one hell of a process to paint aluminium. Plus the paint I wanted was a glossy, shiny, bright paint... and it's like $80 a pint...
