No Sunny, i'm a righty, dont let the pictures fool you, or you will get a lot more disappointed in your future life :) hahaha

Ok, I removed the two strips, looks much better, thanx guys !

I added ACRyan mesh to all fans, and spraypainted the exterior.

Connected the fans to the Mobo, had to solder two fans on one wire.

FIFO051.jpg

Added one UV-CCFL where the GPU exits the case, because of the absence of a fan.

FIFO052.jpg

Tucked most of the wires away from sight, except the ones for the HDD.

Did a try-out of the fans with the lights on.

Glad that you cut the stripes, It does look cleaner, and with UV CCFL are you going to put some more UV reactive... stuffs?

This is the old HDD that was in this antique system.... kinda big eh ?

FIFO061.jpg

So I exchanged it for a "SSD" for poor people with this CF-to-IDE converter and a 2 Gb CF.

FIFO062.jpg

As you can see, it uses an old 3,5" discdrive connector

FIFO063.jpg

I folded this IDE cable as small as I can away

FIFO064.jpg

I need to make it black, it attracts way too much attention away from the tubes.

FIFO065.jpg

I modified one molex connector to a discdrive connector

FIFO066.jpg

fits. I installed a mini-XP on it, and it runs fine !

Too old to run :)

I'm gonna make haste with the vases ! First a paper layout.

FIFO082.jpg

Inside there needs to be space for air to pass.

FIFO083.jpg

Same for this smaller version.

FIFO084.jpg

First on paper.

FIFO085.jpg

And the same cutout for the air.

FIFO086.jpg

These are the two standard beige side-panels, with the paper cutouts on them.

FIFO087.jpg

With a decoupeersaw its quickly removed.

FIFO088.jpg

Painted matt black.

FIFO089.jpg

And added all the parts from the vases and the lamp.
