    I just got a new entertainment system, and everything in it is completely black other than my 360. This makes it stick out like a sore thumb, so I want to do a case mod that'll make it black (like an Elite). To clarify, I want it completely black, not "smoke black" where you can kind of see through it.

    I found a couple sites with dark knight cases, but the only problem is that I have an HDMI port on the back of my 360 and I'm not sure if it's compatible. Does anyone know if a dark knight case will install with the HDMI port? If not, is there a case that will?

    EDIT: I also don't want a window cut in it. Just a plain black case is perfectly fine.

    I want it to look as professional and OEM as possible, so I think it's just easier to buy a new case. Plus I don't trust my spraypainting skills [​IMG].

    If the case fits the hdmi models, then it will normally say. Looking around I can only see the the xcm black knight case with no window without hdmi. Can only seem to get the hdmi one with a pre-cut window.

    Are you sure? Really, all you'd have to do is copy the ones that are on the Elite models, since those ones have HDMI ports. Doesn't anyone sell replacement cases for Elite models? If it comes down to it I'll get the one with the window, but I'd rather have it look a little more official.

    I've also read that the smoke black one (which has an HDMI model) looks completely black when nothing's shining from the inside. Is that true? If it is, I'll just grab that one and not use any lights. But for me to do that it has to look completely black without it being translucent at all (I don't like translucent things). So if someone has one can you tell me if it looks translucent?

    I have one last question. The black knight case with blue LEDs is growing on me, so I think I'm going to get that. When it says it has a window, though, is it actually a closed window or is it just a hole? I definitely don't want a big gaping hole in my Xbox, so I would hope it's just a window. Does anybody know?

    the window area is covered usually with a sheet of clear acrylic plastic
