With the motherboard installed in the case and everything up and running, this machine is a riot of light. The Ballistix DIMMs include red LEDs (we didn't notice that when specifying them), and right next to them is a pair of seven-segment diagnostic panels. Cables are kept to a minimum thanks to the Scythe Stronger PSU's plug-in cable sets, so you only install as many sets as you need; this avoids having lots of redundant cabling to tidy away and potentially block the airflow. The green reflections off the top of the PSU casing will be explained later. One thing this photo doesn't show is that the fan on the Sweex-built graphics card was the noisiest component by far.
