If I were you I would not put LEDs in your case, mine has like... maybe 20 blue leds and it keeps me up at night if you are converting a movie or something like that. To Firebert: Thanks, stuff on my desk: Ipod touch TI-82, bought for $1.00, I put electronic formulas on it, very useful AVR programmer my cellphone intel play boarduino (on the right) 3ft tape measure Make Bomb defuser On big picture, my oscilloscope, and hanging from the handle is my lcr meter

Have you heard? There is this wonderful invention called a switch. It would allow you to either turn off the LEDs or reroute the power around them, or a number of other things :-) (sorry if that sounded mean...it wasn't meant to be....just teasing you know )

i have developped the switch, so i can turn off the leds. wait, blue!!!??? ahhhhhhhh. all i have is red. *adds uv leds and blue ones to shopping list* on the opposit side, i can add something..... maybe a fan...... with leds.......no, not good enough.... how about a fan with plexiglass painted highlights.... yeah, that sounds better ...... rework the bezel, duh... hmm, the lower bezel has some stupid HDD ventilation slits .... what can i do with the front .... i can add plexiglass accents to the front around the bezel ...but what about the lower front. .. maybe add the gauges there? the bottom line is, i will have a nicer pc than you, its just a matter of time

If you have a cheap computer it might, but I haven't noticed a change at all. It should just put some more strain on your graphics card, but not a lot. When going above two monitors you need extra graphics cards, but mostly for the extra ports instead of extra power.

Nah, I think I just got a good shot of the lighting. That would be pretty sweet though, I kind of want to look into uv leds for my case now

Thanks. It's just a cheap Dynex (never even heard of them before I bought it... haha) keyboard I bought for my system when I bought all of it and was out of money. Although it is rather nice for about $10. It has a lot of hot keys for functions like music playing, opening up a My Computer screen, internet browsing, volume, etc.
