Any Mod suggestions for this Rack Mount?

hey guys
well this is the current project i am working on
Epox EP-8K9A3+ / Athlon XP 1700+/ KINGSTON PC2700 256 DDR
/ TOPOWER Black Rackmount 4u Case / COOLMAX 550W CT-550 Aluminum PSU / 2 x 3COM 905CX-TXNM PCI 10/100 / 2 x MobileMaxx Aluminum HD Rack w/LCD display -- BLACK / 2 x Maxtor DiamondMax 80 gig 5400 Rpm / OS = Linux Slackware v9.0 . I got a couple friends into modding. and i never really gave it much thought, untill i plug this thing up and noticed that the fan on the mother board lights up blue. and then i noticed the psu's back fan has like neon lights coming out the back. I really wasnt expecting it when i ordered the psu, i was just thinking about 550 watts. im running this system in hopes to get like 12 x 200 giggers in this thing. since the board will support 4 reg ide devices and 8 more for raid. im hoping to NOT use raid. just use em as reg ide slots but time will tell. ie still have to order more hd's ;} . anyways .. now i think i might have the modding bug.. was looking at the top cover. think a window would look good there.. also was thinking of ways to tidy up wiring.. and am open to other suggestions .. so lay it on me guys what could i do with this thing?

Put a big old cool window in the top. Turn it into a novelty coffee table.

There's a thread i started earlier in case modding about cable wrapping tidying stuff. Braided sort of thing with heat sealed ends.
We never should have stuck our heads out of the grass in Africa.
