Steven Ellis created a case that brings me back to the 60′ and 70′ with the black light and neon colors. The great thing about using UV lighting in a case is that you can get that bright color POP without having blinding lights.
So Steve please tell us about your case mod…
It was very hard choosing a name for this build but for some reason this just popped in my head and I looked it up on Google and it was a match made in heaven.
This build came about because of my old Asus Crosshair IV Formula board dying on me *RIP*
So the Idea for this build started out as Black and Green. But thought how many people have done just 2 colors. I wanted something a little different so I decided to go with black, red, green as the main colors along with an NZXT Hue RGB Lighting for more colors as it has a mode that cycles through multiple colors. There are a lot of “custom features” to this build, I got some car LED’s and wired 12v molex plugs to them and they have a bunch a different modes on them and I placed them under the top panel so it has a glow effect.
The top panels vents were cut out and replaced with mesh along with the front solid panel, I made a cut out and replaced it with mesh for better air flow. On the inside of the case I made a PSU cover with 2 cut outs one for the PSU controller and another for a rocker switch to turn the lights on and off. Also I made a drive bay cover with a cut out for a pair of XSPC temp displays that monitor my CPU and GPU temps. At the bottom of the case where the fan cut outs are, I made a aluminum plate to cover them to prevent more dust and so I could have a little more room to mount things like the SSD’s or Reg 3.5 HDD. I then made some of my own female > female molex adapters for the Bitspower X Station since if i were to buy them it would cost a lot more. Also all the stock LED’s on the case were changed to green.
