    -- 350W PSU
    -- ASRock G41M-Le motherboard
    -- 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo E4600
    -- 2GB Kingston DDR2 800MHz
    -- 200GB Seagate IDE HDD
    -- 512MB XFX GeForce 9400GT'

    Lol way WAY too many wires.

    I have all the standard wires plus the 4 from the temperature reader and 4 more for controlling fan speeds. I also have 2 from the sound cathodes, 1 for the IDE-SATA converter, and several several others..:)

    In that case, good sir, you are excused. :D

    Here are some (hopefully) better pictures. I took the PSU out of the hard drive bays and added a small tri-color LED fan to the front of the case.

    Oh, and I cleaned up some.

    Did you just mount some LEDs inside it and then run that to the Power Supply?

    I don't think mine came with any LEDs near the DVD tray.

    Where the DVD tray is. Above the power button. Theres a green "bar". I kinda assumed that that was supposed to light up. But, on your pictures it doesn't seem to light up.

    1) That case looks HUGE
    2) Is the Power Supple on the bottom?
    3)What're your specs?
