Proof of concept. Testing if the design worked. It did!

RGB LED's to change the mood of the build. At any point, if I so choose, I can change the LED colours to whichever I want thanks to the RGB feature of the LED strips that I have installed. I can also change the rings on the Corsair SP120 fans, and re-sleeve the red cables on the PSU to change the look and feel of the entire computer in under 3 hours.

Everything starts with an idea... This is the light "crack" which can be found on the Z77 series ASUS motherboards that feature the SupremeFX III™ sound chip. I thought I would continue the this theme in my build.
