Not much progress been made in some time. I have been busy selling stuff so I can finance this project. I ordered Gigabyte Z77N-Wifi, Alphacool VPP655
and Alphacool HF D5 top for pump
I also have been made progress with fan controller and with its colour scheme.
I didn't like the original light blue backlight so I decided to change that to red. I tried different ways but I found this way best for me.
Here is the BitFenix Recon in it's original condition. It is nice but it's backlight isn't good for my case.
To disassemble this, only 4 screws needs to be removed from the corners to get it apart. Touch panel was glued to the front so I had to be careful to remove it so it wouldn't broke.
This is what it looks like without covers.
Next step was to get plastic film what I was going to use to make backlight red. Film wasn't red enough so I decided to use huge sharpie to color it more darker. But where is this going to be? I bet you will guess wrong.
Red film goes between backlight module and screen itself. I just slide the film between those and it goes there pretty smoothly.
And in my opinion it works great!
I left 5.25" metal piece out because I wont be needing it. Unfortunately as I was putting it together, I applied to much pressure in touch panel and heard the worst sound ever *SNAP* and touch panel was broken
I have requested new one from BitFenix so it will be in working condition when i need it
Thanks to BitFenix for sponsoring my build
