As for the LEDs, I was planning on making my own as when you have most of the components it can be cheaper, provided you know what you are doing. I would insulate it all, so it should be fine. However the insulating part may be somewhat difficult, I am actually pondering drilling LED sized holes in the motherboard tray and just having the tips of the LEDs poking through, I think that is potentially much easier.
As for photos, photos of what exactly?
This begs a question.
Why would you want to take a chance on screwing up your motherboard by drilling holes in it?
Additionally, can it be assumed that you just want to have a pretty motherboard?
I personally feel that your begging for problems. Many of the motherboards are multi layer and drilling thru one of these layers will destroy the board.
Don't do it.
