has any one try to chrome the entire inside of there pc and install alot of lights, so it would look super bright, i might do it and change my side pannel into a 2 way mirror were you can look inside with all the light bouncing around and hardware reflecting left and right, it a cheap mod but i think it would look pretty sweet what do you think?

It could work, never thought of a two way mirror.

Legit chroming, on the other hand, as in plating the inside of a case is by far NOT CHEAP by any imagination. The dream machine from 08, which had a bunch of chrome on the outside, cost about $5000 to do.

Unless you know of a really cheap way to do it, it wouldn't be a easy mod with legit chrome

im not doing a profesional grade job just buying chrome spray paint and spraying it, then cutting and buying the 2 way mirror is going to be a pain.
heres the chrome spray i might use, maybe something nicer.

I'm thinking mirrors or chrome finish might also reflect heat from your components around the case as well..

I don't think that would be a very big deal if you just maintain airflow. chrome really only reflects radiated heat, which should get immediately whisked away as hot air once it leaves the heatsink.

I think it would be pretty cool if you chromed the inside, and mounted some lasers and a smoke machine in it, so you can see the laser beams bouncing around on the inside.
