every once in a while i think it might be cool to have a window on a case... but then i slap myself around and i snap out of it. i've never figured out the lights though, that'd be more irritating than anything else (especially ones that flash).

i just found "PimpRig on google. Any site who has the name "PimpRig" and their catchphrase is "Smack Ya Rig Up" is definitely going to be... interesting

some of these cases are pretty impressively complex though.

ZUFFY: I've looked at that Case before, what brand is that? Chieftec? I'm thinking about buying it here pretty soon.

Any problems with it?

Mine is a Enermax FS710 (same design as Antec, Chieftec, etc.) I bought the Enermax PS separately. It's a very nice and roomy case.

But using round cable cables is much better than the flat. Before I replaced them with the round cables, I had 50 pins SCSI, 68 pins SCSI, 3 IDE cables in flat covering up the air circulation.

How can that be considered rice without huge spoilers and NOS stickers?

i like the glow in the dark cables. also, you can see the braided wire, which is kinda cool.
