Hi guys....well apart from CCFLs, and LEDs, I am kinda also interested in EL technologies, i.e. EL wire and EL tape....

I have tried searching for case mods that have EL wire/tape in them so that I can get some ideas on where it can be applied...the problem is, I cannot find any such mods really, probably because EL is a very short search string .....:~

So if you have a case mod that has EL wire/tape in it, please post some pics, so I can get some ideas :)...

Also, if you have any links to other case mods with EL wire/tape in them, then please share those links too ...

thanx in advance...

Electroluminescent, perhaps?

the main places I have seen people put EL at is around the side window of the case...

a second popular housing place in right behind the drive bays, provided the casing's front has perforations in it....

dont know which will look better on my casing though....

I have used clear fabric glues in the past to fasten the wire or tape onto the case. Super glue is terrible. It's messy, and doesn't hold nearly as well. The nice thing about the fabric glues, is if you ever want to take it off, it's not all that difficult.

Also, found a brief guide on how to assemble the wire if you didn't figure that out yet.
