Its not really a MOD.... I just found some old model paint (you know, the little tiny jars?) and decided to finally paint my case, so it doesnt look like ass. If you look closely its very sloppy (only took me about 3 hours and an hour of that was spent trying to open 12 year old jars of paint) but Im very happy with the results.

Here is what a stock case like mine looks like (notice the lame grey plastic on the front):

And I had white drives.

EDIT: I plan on buying a blue Kathode soon, I'll put it inside the front panel so it shines through the slits on the sides and bottom.... I might even be able to have a switch for it where that little oval shaped thingy is toward the bottom of the front panel.

If that's a corner hutch unit it's under I think I have Bubbles on an identical one. (Well, there are about 60 holes drilled in a haphazard fashion on that 'leg' on the right in your picture on my hutch...it's an air-flow thang. ;) )

Maybe I forgot to add that its metalic blue paint... its supposed to look the way it does in those pics... it looks different from every angle.

I think it looks nice. There is something very special about home made things :)
Makes it personal.

I work at a printing company so I can make big stickers :)

I actually made a few for my case. I was planing to add a window mod to my case but I ran out of funds (you need good expencive tools too you know). So I might just cover the sides with art instead :)
I made my own mouse pad at work too with my logo on :D ... if I only had a black monitor ....

Maybe Ill post some pictures some day.
