Thanks Guys. Thats 16AWG.

Time to cut after putting everything in place.
8084636713_7c62fdc9c5_z.jpg
8.5 inches

Placed in grooves to cut.
In background...the Lutro0 parts to get, scissor, nippers, knipex wire stripper ($90-but worth it)

Used heatgun too fast, and superglue did not hold the orange sleeve place (last one got too excited)..bah

Thought of another idea...just go wires from last Sata connector of blu-ray drive to 1st P-Clip, Then Single sleeve (Sata data sleeve) for all 5 wires to 3rd P Clip and then branch to 5 sleeved wires to PSU.
This time I'll go reverse starting from PSU and back into bluray/disk drives.
Meanwhile sanded down the MNPCTech 5 22mm bay for vandal switches:

And painted bright white with matte finish:

Decided to do some acrylic stuff...since all the bonding takes a day, a good way to kill weekdays. All these shots are in the garage.
Got me this dremmel saw in the weekend:
8092465231_f789a854e7_z.jpg

Lots of acrylic dust flying off: Smooth cuts if you use a T with this dremmel saw. Better than using a jigsaw, and better than a circular saw due to small size of unit and small size of circular blade.
8092468557_9f4c8e7236_z.jpg

Perfect fit:
8092467203_8c3d81bff2_z.jpg

Preparing sandwich....0.25" White Acrylic on two sides, with 0.125" Transparent Acrylic:
First part:
8092466207_5fbdafa18b_z.jpg

With ccfl light in between , still need another 0.25" spacing, probably nylon spacers at bottom:
8092464351_b77e8e9839_z.jpg

This is how smooth the cut is with dremel saw without router or finishing:
8092469120_8fc7de9989_z.jpg

Sandwich without any polishing....This is the prepolished side, have to polish again because the liquid cement kind of seen:
8092467974_6a31ee1e78_z.jpg


The sides are pretty wide..As I want enough spacing to put bolts through in original holes....Probably not the best idea should have made it less wide.:
8092466862_07f325ff70_z.jpg

This is the effect with CCFL light in between a sandwich:

Not sure why I can't edit earlier post...But this is the effect on the side,
8092458403_a0d143cf4b_z.jpg
This is without polishing. Not that it would be really seen. But the cutouts which is yet to come, it will be seen nicely.

Ok day 2 of playing with acrylic and lighting:
Used jigsaw to make those pretty sharp bends for U. Metal blade set at 5 for turns:
8095872366_ecc5c26123_z.jpg

Used different dremmel to file/smooth/sharpend edges; multiple top bits:
8095865095_440bc5e8df_z.jpg

This is how smooth it comes out:
8095870568_64cf468630_z.jpg
Here the finish is so fine, that white light from garage is not letting me take a good shot:
8095863461_a0c559d082_z.jpg

After 2 days of work, I don't like the output; and have to cut out the whole thing as underside; and then put another layer of 0.125" (not 0.25") and this time I will try with Transparent White Acrylic, instead of Transclucent White Acrylic:
8095868020_976d03d0bf_z.jpg

On the bright side, I learned a lot of acrylic. sanding/polishing acrylic

Good news is that AQ D5 Pump Adaptor for Aqualis is now ready and has shipped from Germany. The last piece i needed since August 14th to get mobo/gpu on. So next week different types of updates as I will have to clean the radiator and so on.

Meanwhile I figured out the white acrylic issue. I need the entire lightbox to almost 1.5" high to get the light going properly:
8101628801_46770e1e91_z.jpg

That would be the height. The supporting underside has to be shortened significantly. So I have to order new acrylic... frown.gif

Realized center push button was 16 mm...an error in ordering along with the fact, that the replacement switch for the default blue ring for STH10 power on/off switch was wrong finish (silver).
8101641036_6f818ea9d7_z.jpg

With MNPCTech front (above) and back (below). Empty holes filled with supplied plastic caps.
8101640160_27c832547f_z.jpg

Cap + Orange + White + Red + Cap is the order of layout

Thanks.
Who sells this product in the US:
Illumination-insert G1/4 incl. gasket

Need to insert RGB Leds into the base for Aqualis and realized I need a G 1/4 adapter/gasket.

Or if something else can work.
