Hold on... I think I got it straight in my head

Infrared is optical but you'd have to mod your mouse to make it infrared 'cause most optical mice just use a really bright red led. the mx1000 is laser, and that was supposed to be it's big feature but turns out it's not that great for games (too sensitive or something).

I guess infrared got stuck in my head because I burnt the board of an old mouse trying to solder in an infrared led

Welcome to the club! Post up pics of your new case when it's done. But how do you use your right hand with the mouse ?? That's impossible for me!

Doesn't it feel that way though? Everybody trying to shake your right hand, doors swinging to the right, those pants that come with one back pocket to the right. It's driving me nuts!!!

LOL fear and loathing from the left handed !

I primarily uyse my left hand, but when it comes to gaming, my left hand is by far faster at typing, and moving a mouse only requires a few different things, while running, jumping, ducking, etc. all require more button/key presses...

i dunno if im allowed to link to another forum but heres an excellent guide on removing molexes without buying a tool, instead just using a small screwdriver but it would help anyone really.

http://www.moddin.net/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=3625

goin offline now to fix up my pc with some braiding. will post an 'after' pic when done.

It's fine to link to other forums so long as the content there isn't offensive or whatever.

I know it aint as good as sum of the pics on sum of the previous pages, but here is my attempt...

It is lit by UV light, and everything inside is UV Reactive, except the PSU which gives a blow glow into the case. It looks really good at night, but unfortunately (when it works), I cudnt capture that with the camera.

heres the finished piece im sure you'll agree it looks much better. the kit was ok but the heat shrink didnt work too well so i had to improv with cable ties and a couple of elastic bands.
