1, Window applicte that says madshrip on the top
2, all fans and cables will be sleeved with uv sensitive paint
3, on the bottom of the case, leds will be placed in a way to make the bottom glow.
4, VU Meter on the front bottom of the case, in a swirl, with madshrimp printed below.

Here's my entry... yes, the picture is rather plain and basic, but that's because if I included all the detail, it'd become a cluttered mess. There is prefection in simplicity

I'll describe it in the same order that I'd construct it... My ideas/themes are to have white lighting, chrome features, and minimal mess. I know I'm swaying from the norm with the white lighting, but I like being different.
* Using clear perspex/plexi, I'd construct a PSU housing in the front bottom of the case. Cut an intake into the front of the case, mount a clear fan to draw air in. This fan would have white LED's mounted in it, most likely a custom mod. The rear of the PSU housing would be vented, obviously.

* A CD burner and DVD rom would be windowed, the metal casings I'd have chrome dipped if possible. They'd then be mounted on either side of the case, so the CD faces outwards. A HDD would be windowed and placed in the front top of the case, if possible I'd get its case chromed as well, but I might have to paint it chome instead.

*A giant hole would be cut in the top of the case, to mount my radiator. I didn't draw the details of the watercooling, but this is my idea: Use braided stainless steel tubing (to keep with the chrome theme), watercooled CPU, VGA and NB, an inline system, with the pump hiding inbetween the cdroms to keep visible clutter to a minimum. The radiator would have a duct constructed out of clear perspex, and I'd use four 80mm clear fans... it would sacrifice performance, but look very good.

* Braided IDE cables would be used, yet again keeping with the theme. I'd try to find a way to use chrome/braided housing for all the psu cables, but otherwise black wiring loom would be best to hide the cable mess.

* For my finishing touches, I'd engrave a lightning bolt design into the sides of the case, but this would need to be illuminated to have visual impact, so, to avoid a visual mess, I'd use right-angle aluminium around the bottom of the case, to hide the wiring, and I'd drill holes and place LED's in the bottom of the side panels, facing upwards to illuminate the lightning bolt. The idea of the right-angle is to hide any wiring and the actual LED's, and this would be either polished or chrome painted.

I'd aim to have minimum clutter, as I mentioned, the problem with a clear case is it can become a mess if you're lazy, hence trying to keep all cables under control, and hide anything ugly. This PC would be built for more silent use than outright performance, it looks so good that I'd want to have it running constantly, and I don't like screaming PC's as they're too imposing for use in a bedroom.

arite aangezien mijn engels niet zo echt goed is zal ik maar alles in het nederlands uitleggen:

Aangezien ik het bos niet meer door de lichten wou zien heb ik zo maar eventjes 8 ccfl's in mijn mod gepropt. Hope u have your sunglasses on . Dan zitten bovenaan 3 80mm outtake fans en vooraan 1 120mm intake fan. dan heb ik nog voor 2 'speciallekes' gezorgt. Het eerste betreft een mistmachine die wat voor extra effect zorgt . Het tweede is iets wat ik toch echt wel eens wil maken: een oude cd-rom drive waarvan ik de de knoppen die ik nie nodig heb wegberg met wat rubber erover, alleen de eject-button blijft over. vanvoor tegen de tray zet ik mijn LED's en op de tray zet ik mijn switches. tzal moeilijk zijn omdat te maken, but i'll do my best

ik hoop alvast dat het niet de bedoeling was dat je paint-skillz hebt en dat de mod primeert.
