Guys, I need to mod something.

I built myself a PC for home. Regarding the components I chose the following:

ASUS P9X79-E WS
Intel Socket 2011 CPU
32GB Kingston Beast DDR3-1600
Corsair Neutron GTX 240GB
POV TGT GTX 680
Antec KühlerH2O 920
LianLi PSU (old and crappy)

All this stuff is in this case:

So ... my plans so far:

0. Color scheme: black/blue/white
1. Big window instead of the mesh in the top (transparent blue acrylic glass)
2. Remove the front completely
3. Create a new front, with a window where the two fans once were
4. Engrave the ocaholic logo into it
5. Create a backlight (with white light) to make the ocaholic Logo glow
6. Anodize the mobo coolers black
7. Watercool the motherboard
8. Watercooling for CPU
9. Watercooling for GPU
10. Build a socket for underneath the case
11. Put a MO-RA 3 Pro into that socket
12. Sleeval all cables


Maybe you guys have more ideas for me :O?


Watercooling gear so far:
1 x MO-RA 3 Pro
2 x MO-RA Grill
Fans tbd
Tubing tbd


Components for sure so far:
Motherboard: ASUS P9X79-E WS
CPU: Intel Socket LGA2011
Memory: Something decent that fits
SSD: Corsair Neutron GTX 240GB
HHD: 1 or 2 2.5 inch drives
GPU: tbd
...

You will sleeve all cables?

If in worst case I have to, then I will do it.

I don't know yet. The only thing that is for sure now is that I want a general color scheme which is black/blue/white

In case of watercooling, I guess I will install the radiator of the Eisberg 240 and the Eisberg 120.

Mora with grills looks awesome Maybe I'll use fans with blue light and put them to the bottom side of the radiator to have some light there.

I've added the acrylic glass I want to use for the windows.

So far I'm really not sure what I want to do with the front cover. The one that comes with the case looks just plain ugly. Sure, one thing I know, I want to get rid of it. But when it's not there anymore what am I going to put there. I was thinking about a thick, black (15 to 20 mm) acrylic glass plate with two holes for 140 mm fans. On the other hand it could also make sense to go for an aluminium or steelplate, cut out a window in the upper half and voila.

Anyway also cutting out space for windows will have the consequence that I'll have to do a painjob when all cut outs are done.
