Honestly I've never cared for it myself

And serious, who thinks hard water piping without QD (Quick Detach) mounts is a good idea for long term usage in custom water cooling?

I have a HAF XM. It has red LEDs. Thankfully, it also comes with a switch to turn them off. They are always off.

So no, a lot of the "bling" actually bothers me. I like practical, efficient, and easy to work in. I don't spend a lot of time looking at my computer case anyway, so why bother making it look fancy?

I gave up the "flash" about ten to twelve years ago. Most, if not all, of my cases are solid panels sans window and pretty much stock out of the box. I'll do a mod or two for a client, paint their cases or themed watercooling but my days of adding windows to hard drives and cold cathodes are long gone.
Ooo eee, oo ah ah, ting tang, walla walla bing bang.

I pimp my rig all the time. I sit it on the corner and charge people passing by for game time.

The less you see them, the better.

Its just a bloody case. Its not supposed to attract your attention and I hate how annoying it can be to the eyes. Any light bothers me. A PC is about what happens on the screen. So all that flash, is just dumb.

The one thing I could think of is building a desk (like some I've) seen and mount that to a wall.
I have built - Minus a few parts (monitor @ moment). Screw trying to record video (on PC).

I added some lights to illuminate the inside and I have blue led fans. Wished my window was more clear though it's more of a smoke color

i have the nzxt phantom 820 so it does have lights and stuff. I dont usually use them, but the back panel led has came in handy a few times.

What's the point of pimping it? Who would you be trying to impress?

I did on my first gaming computer and came to regret it when I moved into a studio apartment that was VERY well lit by the blue lights of my computer.

My current one is solid black, no extra bling.
