Actually I feel the same way,The overall details of the XT really stand out since changing the red to silver and once the Evo's are removed from behind them the lighting will hit the drives much better

and ever since hooded has mentioned the wiring poking thru on my res. cover has made me decide to improve it and only leave the res tube showing...

Since I put my Neutrons on the Chamber side,it left me with 2 Evo's and no where to put them so I added a Pcie card and got the Evo's in a raid.
This meant I had to paint and redo the rear cover so I decided to make a backplate for the raid card.

I decided to go in a new direction with my case lighting with my career build
Ill be removing all the current lighting and adding 2 new panels and modify 2 existing panels.
Here is a rough cut of my main chamber panel with 8 leds just tape attached to give a rough idea,this panel with contain a total of 42 leds,The entire build will have 100+ leds,least so far.



Yes the plexiglass has lots of scratches but its being painted my build color
The Corsair will remain clear and will show 3 logo images

I finished the first part of 4 in my new lighting.
This is the lower main side that was done,while it appears as the usual lighting,look at the 2nd pic and it shows that the ssd and gpu trim actually
light with its own color control...



The wiring strips have their own quick connection for easy removal,the harness for this section consists of 48 soldered points with 2 extra connectors for future expansion...

Been a while but soon Ill be buttoning up this build as Im finishing up the lighting after making several changes,I also acquired A white air 540 that I'm in the process of making panels for.
Rather than having separate threads I thought Id just combine the two here
Here's what the 540 used to look like...

Been alot of work making the white 540 with trying to find the spare time
this is a test of panels
while this case only offers space for a few drives,when finished this will have 12,5 3.5 drives,6 ssd drives and a 950 pro for the OS


very soon Ill be doing a total redo on my blue 540 that really sets off the lighting also

just did a test fit to insure the 3 layers of the new back cover will line up properly,needs a little squaring up as i suspect the case isn't fully square

This is the center section of the rear cover which houses the leds and mounts 3 Xt ssd's,a farbwerk for the lighting and 2 Aquaero's for fan control.
I still need to glue the leds around the ssd's and then start mounting the hardware
Once done the leds will monitor every component for temperature.
