    Introduction

    Case modifications have become all the rage in the past few months. From standard case windows to adding all sorts of other cool modifications, people have been going crazy with their cases. I've also been bitten by the case mod bug. At first I had big plans for my case. I wanted to add a cool window design, a neon light or two, and few extra fan holes as well. However, after re-evaluating all the work it would take to do all this, I decided to start slow and do things one at a time. As this is my first attempt at modifying my case, I didn't want to use my new Antec SX1030B as the test subject. So, I'm planning to do all the major mods on my old Inwin case first. I'm still in the process of acquiring a Dremel and some spare time to start this case mod frenzy. There are a number of retail outfits on the net that offer ready made kits to easily modify your case. PCMods.com is one of them. They were generous enough to provide a sample of their Sound Sensitive Neon Light kits for me to review. So begins my case modifying career, and this review.

    Specs & Features

    The neon light kit I received is PCMods.com's 15", sound sensitive model, nicknamed the Lightning rod for its electric blue color. The price tag of $39.99 + S/H might be a little steep for your casual computer user, but having the coolest rig in your dorm doesn't come cheap. Below are the specifications for the neon light:

    15" Model Specifications:
    3 Watts of power
    15" Length: 17.5625 inch (44.6 cm) mounting screw brackets can be removed to reduce to 16.875 inches (42.86 cm)
    15" Width: 1.25 inch (3.175 cm)
    15" Height: 1.25 inch (3.175 cm)
    Switch Diameter: .75 inch (1.9 cm)
