    Don't forget that clear plastic chassis don't have EM shielding like metal cases and sometimes issues can arise from using them.

    But you can always spray the inside with a nickel based RFI paint - has the advantage of hiding all the messy internals too. (And if you put a white coat on first, you can emulate the Apple look)

    Re: Clear acrylic case

    Used to have one myself.
    Be aware that they are a real pain to work with. The one I had you had to pretty much dismantle the case just to add/remove drives, as the motherboard blocked the screws on one side and it didn't have any guides for drives to leave unscrewed.
    Ebay or classifieds will probs be your best bet if not too urgent.
    Unless you are local to manc as I may still have mine.
