    I've been looking at getting a clear case mod recently since I already have the talismoon red fan installed, and the red rgh chip. I want the input of you guys before I chose the color, though.
    This is the clear ghost case and right now I'm thinking it will be a bit too dark to be able to see the LEDs in the daytime.
    This is what I think I'm going to get if everyone else thinks it will look pretty cool (with red LEDs).
    And lastly this is the LED mod i will be doing because the one that comes with the case is blue, not as powerful, and doesn't have a remote.

    So, what are you guys' opinions? 1st or 2nd case?
    All opinions will be appreciated. ;)
    (I might post a pic of what my console looks like afterwards).
    Note: This is what the whisper talismoon fan looks like.

    EDIT: Just bought the darker case after everyone convincing me. I'll upload pics when I get done with everything, maybe even a vid to start promoting xpg on my youtube channel.

    EDIT: This past weekend I worked on the case and tonight i finished. I should upload pics right when i stop being lazy.

    Here are some pics: [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]-LED remote

    That dark one looks good, but if you want them lights to be bright I guess youwould want the one without color.

    Thanks for both of your opinions! I'll wait for a few more people then hopefully order in the next few minutes. I'm just hesitant to order the darker case because i want to clearly be able to see the dvd spinning if I'm going to go through all the trouble of putting on a clear dvd drive top. It looks really hard to install on a Lite-On.

    I Would go with the more clear if doing any type of see-through case,,especially with lights,, the only thing to consider is what the RGH wiring will look like from the underside of the console,,if the modder didn't use hot glue to fasten the wires, or if your wires are routed in a messy way to allow better boot times,,these should all be considered when going "see-through". To me the only reason to go clear is to show off your neat, tidy, and clean modded console ;)

    When I opened it to change out my retail fan to the talismoon one, I thought that the RGH wires were very snug, but me not knowing what the ideal wiring route is, I don't know if it's amazing. It's an RGH1 and the boot times are about 5-12 seconds (not sure if that is fast or slow). But i think i might have to go with the ghost one mostly because of the color I'm using, red. I think black(ish) and red is a really cool combo. I'll definitely post pics after the transformation is complete per say, lol. Also what bmxracer said about the cheap air soft gun was pretty convincing.

    Yeah I agree with you both on that point :LOL: ,, but done right it would look sweet to show off the wiring etc. Can't blame you a bit for your choice as I do think the red will look good with the smoked case ;) Look forward to the pics
