That'* nice, but too common. That'* the old alienware case with custom windows and badges.

Unfortunately for me, the Dell I have would take too much work to change cases on. I tried once, but the power button and front ports are kinda like hard wired into the MB (actually, it'* a Dell Specific cavle, but..). I just have to come up with some whay to mod this...

ye it is, and it can be done but why not go "hardcore" and buy parts a piece it together because if you switched cases you void your dell warranty if you have one anyways

Here'* my 8200 tower. I originally wanted to light up the "dell" in the circle on the side, but that won't work very well. I was hoping to do that from behind, but the case is build weird. I'm thinking light up the dell in the silver circle in the front would be kinda sweet, i still have one LED left over somewhere. This is just some wire 2 LED'* and 2 resistors in parallel.

They are BRIGHT.

Mine doesn't have the big circle around the Dell logo like in the pic, but yours wouldn't bet that hard. Cust the whole circle out, then carefully remove the Dell logo. Replace the circle with plexi, and glue the Dell back on to it....

Problem with my case is the structural support. There'* metal back there too, and it'* not flat, it'* got some cuts and stuff, and i'm not sure what it would do to the case'* rigidity. At that point all that'* holding it up is the plastic around the circle. I think a hard drive mighta been in the way as well....

Probably the same as mine, and it looks like It'* just shielding. Don't have access to it right now, so I'm shooting from memory here...
