I think it is just right. The FAA may dissagree when the thing takes off without squawking the tower.

I have the same case. I like the way the rotor blade spins like a real jet engine. Mighty geeky, but mighty cool!
Your light doesn't seem to show through the grille very well, any ideas why? Maybe just the pics, but on mine the light glows much better.
It's worth replacing the front fan, if you can get to it, as it has a very low CFM and doesn't blow much.
Isn't it annoying how desks are built to only accomodate small PCs? My Aeroengine sits precariously over the egde, just like yours.

yeh, you can see a box holding the shelf up underneath!!
It might be that my camera flashed, lowering the amount of light you can see. My two fans at the back flash red and blue, plus my 2 neons, make it a bit....urm...flash!

lol! Neat! I have a sound reactive green Neon, hence it flashes in time to music. It was an external one, but I took it apart to fit it internally.
It can be set to just glow, or flash in time to a beat. Probably best suited to dance music where it responds better, other music forms have bass all over the place so it doesn't really flash in time to anything.
