I hope it will come out nicely after painting the case. :)

I think it will be nice without the corsair logo in the front. A clean front with no could be nice. If not, i just place it there again :P

Haha, words rolling off the keyboard. Know about that problem :P

I remember people making custom "Jewels" for the original XBOX, perhaps something to explore. I like the clean look myself but it might be worth trying with and without when finished since the face plate has the dimple in it.

Maybe i can make that. I dont know yet. But, i can bend out the mesh where the logo was. As you see, the logo was recessed into the metal, so if i bend it out, it would be wery clean. And i like a clean look :)

I might be swapping out the leds on my fan controller and power&hdd led too. But the power led is inside the power button, so i dont know what type of led it is there.

Going to have a better look at that power LED picture you sent. To my 22:00 on a Sunday evening after a busy weekend with the family it looks like a superflux LED, does it have 4 legs and is it a "through hole" type? Tuesday (Monday packing rush over) eyes might see it differently though.

It has two pins. Not 4. it is throug hole type, yes. But your superflux LED's is only 3mm, this one is 2mm. And i can not find a superflux LED in orange :(
And how many leds are you going to send to me tommorow? Just need the number of LEDs so i can write a sponsor update.. :)
