Anyone seen this done yet? I think it would look pretty sweet. When I pop the lid on mine to add memory I'll see if the logo is semi clear.

Someone was having a discussion about this with me, actually. I wonder if he ever figured it out, his uncle was going to have a look see at it. But onto the issue, the logo on top isn't just plastic sitting there, it's covered by a metal bracket on the bottom. to make it glow you'd need to break it off of the metal bracket, superglue it to the actual aluminum enclosure, and then add lighting. It still won't look that good due to the little plastic knobs that will then be everywhere, so you'd have to sand those down. There should be a picture of what I'm talking about in the photo gallery. If not, I can take some pictures when I get home, even though that will cut out of my Diablo 2 playing time... Evil or Very Mad. Laughing
