    Cool

    That's very cool! I love the lights. How long did it take to drill out the "Mavrick"??? I would have went insane...more so...

    Although I don't think you need that many fans. Two in a small case is usually enough. But more fans are like blinking lights: they look very impressive.

    Is that TV out? If so, how did you get it to fill the whole screen?

    But I love the case

    It is TV out. Not quite fullscreen (1/4" on top & bottom), but the GUI makes it look like it is. That was the idea around the black background, along with making the display not as bright.

    BTW thanks for everyones responses. I would also like some constructive criticism. I need new ideas, or maybe it is all done!

    Well it seems that the main (+12v) power lead was bad. Luckily there was a power jack coming out of the LCD. I couldn't find a universal power adapter to fit it (the same size as an Iomega external zip drive). The plug is male and all I could find were male adapters, no female. So I just ran a wire from the +12v input of the jack, and it seems to work fine, besides the on/off switch, but it is being powered by the computer so when the computer shuts off so does the LCD.


    And the red wire running around the black looks cool!
