Does anyone know of a reputable online source (in the USA) where I may be able to acquire a Yellow Case. Preferably a mid tower ATX, but a full tower is acceptable. No micro crap. I am building a system for a friend and she wants a yellow case and I don't really want to take the time to paint one. I have already tried NewEgg and MWave with no luck. I will keep trying, but any suggestions are appreciated.

Thx
JM :afro:

I hate this new design in cases. Its like the new standard. I can't stand it!!!

Anyway......this place has multiple colors. They are also california based.
bunta.com (http://www.bunta.com/)

Though they didn't exactly get the best rating on resellerratings.com I might add. 7.55, but good enough for me. Anyway good luck. :thumb:

Thx Wiggo, I am hoping that will do the trick. I didn't even think to check Directron. :thumb:

Thx RD, but I have read enough of their reviews to stay far away from Bunta.com. I am not up for that type of gambling :no:

The case from Directron is really yellow. I like the fan options as well.

Won't they be behind the door? Or you could use a contrasting color like black. In fact, you could make it a bumblebee case with additional black accents. The case fans could emulate the buzz.

Actually, now she wants a purple case! :eek: I emailed her some of the pics of the cases at Directron and she decided she liked the purple instead. The drives will still be behind a door, so I am not going to worry myself about that. She did ask me for a purple mouse and keyboard. :rolleyes2 I have seen them, but only as part of a prebuilt system. Anyone have any suggestions where I can acquire a purple input combo?

Thx JM

well some people usually get blue and purple mixed up. You know violet. Or blue violet. Anyway check this out it maybe close enough to purple

or you can get something actually grape/purpose at golden bridge technologies. I ran them up on reseller ratings.com I don't know how good they are as they don't have a rating.

So good luck with your search.

Good choices. Now we need to see more of both of you in the Beer Garden posting your pointed brand of humor. By the way, there's plenty of stimulation there as well.

There was a nice yellow combo...

go for it. Cause I kinda liked that bee idea. You know witht he yellow comp and black drives. Getting fans to add to buzz. That was all good ideas. I mean not for me but for her. ;)

As long as it's for her. You could paint the fan blades black & yellow (alternating).

I would have to alternate concentric rings for it to show up, otherwise it would just look like a grey blur. Right now that is way too much trouble. :laugh:

Yes a spiral. It would go with the bumblebee scheme.

don't you mean cyberpowerinc.com? My friend bought a PC from them. Cyberpower.com seem to be just an internet chat room.

Try this site for cool cases, including color ones: http://www.colorcases.com/ I cannot vouch for there service though, since I haven't ordered from them. They have other tweeking goodies too.

Other tweeking/Overclocking sites I've found and/or used are:
OCsystem: http://www.ocsystem.com/ocsystem/index.html
CrazyPC: http://www.crazypc.com/
Cyber Cooler: http://www.cybercoolerinc.com/new.html

Hope this isn't too late for your needs. :)

Here's another US site that does custom cases for you to check out, http://www.voyeurmods.com/ ;)

Here's a link to a review of one of their jobs, http://www.ocaddiction.com/reviews/cases/voyeurmods_badass/ , based off the aluminium UNEEC case. :devil:

the bumblebee idea has to be one of the more original ideas ive heard in a long time.

how would you guys create the buzzing sound? preferably the buzz can be turned on and off, i doubt you'd like this perpetual bzz bzz coming out of your PC. you'd prolly go nuts in a day or two.

the fans with tail pipes like a honda would emulate the buzz

You could also loop a digital recording of a bee hive and have it load with windows. :laugh:
