This is a custom case that I'm planning for next year. Lol I'm limited to about $50 or so, so it can't go overboard. Basically it will be an acrylic cube case with a color scheme of blue and green. Ironically, I am thinking of going with an abstract land, sky, and water pattern on the outside, only I have no idea of what this should look like... I need to do a bit of doodling... Right now, I am in the market for new hardware. I've already decided on a phenom x2 550. I have narrowed the motherboard down to two options, which will come down to price. I already have a psu, gpu, dvd drive, and hard drive from my last system, so I just need to decide on good ddr3 ram and an aftermarket cpu cooler (air). I'm thinking of getting the Coolermaster V8
but wonder if this will be overkill. Also, how hard would it be to replace the led colors to blue? (want to match the lights in my evga geforce9800 gx2). I will add on to this post throughout the next year and hopefully will have a case built in less than 300 days. Obviously still in the planning stages, so feel free to throw ideas at me and whatever... I'm guessing most progress will be over weekends as I'm still in high school and have lots of expectations from my teachers. *sigh* I expect to have all the hardware ordered within the next 2 weeks or so. Ha, just thought that when I get the parts, I will most likely design this case on the computer that will go in it as right now I'm stuck with a single core 2ghz 1gb geforce 6200 128mb computer... doesn't like 3d applications. I plan to do a TON of led lighting in the case, and integrate that with the acrylic... an after thought, can you do successful paint jobs on acrylic?
