cables shinny biggrin.gif

lol you are so right, the ASUS cards are monsters. and they require 2 x8 pin connectors. I would have paid you to make cables for me. i really like your work.

i agree with you so much tongue.gif it was hard installing those ugly fans in there, but jeez they are great. They are deff some of the best fans on the market. and thank you

EL Wire, EL Sheet and EL Ribbon are all basically the same, though the colors are not consistent across the three types due to manufacturing processes. EL is GREAT for its minimal profile and bendability. The Ribbon and Sheet aren't much thicker than paper, the Wire is mere millimeters!
Fact is, nothing else gives off light like this stuff does.
The downfall is their initial brightness, which can be equivalent or less than LEDs; the inverters can be fidgety, give off an audible high-pitch buzz when operating and die very easily; and EL has a 'half-life'.
That is, after dozens to hundreds of hours of operation, the brightness will, essentially, drop to about half of what it was when new, then half again and half and so on until it's just a weak glimmer of what it once was.I'm pretty sure it bottoms out at some point.
Like CCFL, the inverter pumps the voltage into the 'hundreds of' range and can be quite the shock if accidentally exposed. As to brightness, put a ccfl next to any EL product and the EL may as well not even be on.
You can pump more voltage into EL and get it very freaking bright, but that kills the lifespan. Running at, or below required voltage extends the lifespan, but at the cost of the brightness.
If you run your box 24/7, the inverter ain't gonna last long,weeks or months. And while the EL itself runs utterly cool, the inverter puts off a good amount of heat and needs cooling, such as being right in front of a case fan.
This is the best info I could find with a 10 minute search.
http://science.howstuffworks.com/electroluminescent-wire1.htm
But to get back to the good side, EL is really sweet, does what no other form of lighting can. Like all tools, it's good for some things and not good for others. It all depends on the usage.
Hope that helps.
Here's some vids I did 3 years and a month ago. I'm sure the tech has advanced some in that time. But the lifespan issue has not been solved that I've heard of.
This just shows off EL WireThis diorama incorporates EL Wire, Ribbon and Sheet, CCFL and LEDs so the comparative brightness is very evident.

Very nice stuff!!! thumb.gif

Haha! Indeed. I have little practice with making thinks look clean as far as running wires and cables. This is the first time I've had a case that allowed for running things through the back. If you think that's bad, you should see "behind the scenes" lol! I'm considering losing the PATA optical drive which would help out immensely, but that's not set in stone yet. I'll have to look for some kind of "guide" on cleaning up.

However, I did have a thought (nothing short of a miracle for me) in class this morning. I'm wondering if I could mock up some sort of fan assembly for the lower end of the case. There's a considerable amount of empty space above the PSU since I am not using the expansion slots. Because I don't really intend on doing Crossfire 6950s, I may look at something to do down there, but then again, it doesn't seem very necessary.

As far as external themes/mods, I also decided I want to do some sort of Battlefield 3 theme. I haven't put much thought into it, but I would like to incorporate the orange streak/burst. A soldier, though cliche I think would work too. And, once again going with functionality, I'm considering installing a removable headset hanger/holder. I say removable because I don't see myself engineering a retractable piece on the backside of the case, and I really don't want to risk damaging the case or the hanger when I move the behemoth around.

Of course, if I do go with this theme I will be putting "Armatus" in an appropriate style somewhere on the side.

Just initial ideas. Keep in mind this would be the first time I've modded a case, so I need to be rather careful so I don't do something I will later regret. Any thoughts?

I don't mean to be a critic here, but holy buckets! Please, for the sake of everyone's sanity, use punctuation! The only punctuation you used was an apostrophe, and that wasn't used correctly! GAH! Sorry, just a huge pet peeve!

Hello, by the way!

Well I have been thinking along the same lines ... My Idea emcompasses the additon of a housing from two fans mounted on the side panel. Then, a housing or air current could be diverted to any place where you need lots of air. Or you could make a PSU Cover out of acrylic and cut a fan hole pointing upwoard, then have two fans inside on the bottom sucking air into the chamber and lett it out down the edge like a defroster on a car window or a Vent deflector that would be tube like.

I just ordered one the other day and wanted to tell anyone who might have been waiting for it that they are out.

I look forward to posting my finished product when my computer is finished. Thanks for all the idea's i have gotten from all of your Rigs.

No problem.. I am glad you informed us on the New Windowed side Panels. We here in the USA do not have access to the new Panels yet. We have to wait but thanks for the heads up.. thumb.gif

Hey guys, I've got an idea:

How about everyone posts a single overview picture of their cable management on the back (behind the motherboard).

I could afterwards make an imgur album of all the pics as inspiration for new members.

Then we could have a "beauty contest" with users voting once everyone has posted their pic.

The winning pic could maybe earn a spot in the first post.

If you feel like it maybe label some cables with paint.net or whatever .

New members (or those that have redone theirs) can then post a picture to contest the current number one.

Anyone think this is a good idea?
