Hey guys :)

Well, it's built! Check out these lights! I put neons on the underside of the case (red EL Wire, routed through the fan port in the bottom), re-wired my entire case to be cleaner and more air-efficient, routed cables through the back and behind the motherboard, snapped a cold cathode tube in half (oops), and wired up tons of other stuff.

Supplies list:

- 21x Red Cold Cathode Tube (I pulled too hard on one...)
- 2x UV Cold Cathode Tubes
- 1x Red EL Wire
- 1x NZXT Sentry 2 front panel (for bling purposes only)
- 8x UV-reactive red thumb-screws
- 10x UV-reactive red molex connectors
- 1x HAF X

The front:


An angled view:


Underside neons

And another



Plans for the future:

I need to connect those MOLEX connectors when my pin extractor tool gets here. I also need to re-route the thermometers that came with the Sentry 2. The next and easiest upgrade will be replacing the side-panel fan with one that has a red LED, same goes for the rear and top fan. My 2nd top and front fan both have red LEDs.
