Looking forward to suggestions and inputs.  Lets design something unique and fun!

Hi xii.  Great system.
 
One suggestion I would make is for your internal lighting.  The fluid DS uses for cooling is UV reactive.  One option under Internal Lighting is the following: Internal Chassis Lighting System (UV) (Creates Glowing Effect for H20 Tubes).  The config only lets you choose one option.  I would ask DS if they could do both the blue lighting and the UV lighting.  If you can only have one then you would have to choose between the glowing effect of the UV lighting or the blue lighting option. 
 
Keep us posted.
All evil comes from within,
Not from Without,
Therefore, the 1st step on the Holy Warrior path,
Is to recognize thyself as thy 1st enemy.

Thank you so much for the feedback - I talk to some wonderful people over at DS, who I had actually spoken to a few months prior and he made me remember on some concept sketches I did.  Now my mental gerbil is running - I have a couple neat ideas.

Thanks guys.  Had to wait on actually getting paid to retire.

The Gov is slow - thats a topic for another forum however.

Anyway, I decided to go with some different ideas from above thanks to a good call to DS.

Hopefully this is gonna be sweet.
