[MC/Corsair] Corsair 900D "Godzilla" unveiled - Page 275

post #2741 of 5815
Guys, this is something that i wanted to show, but i've been busy with other stuff....

This is Enermax T.B Vegas Trio fans, they are ~30$ each. They have 3 colors: red, green and blue. They also have ~12 button changing mods: red, blue, green, red propeller, blue propeller, green propeller, 3-color view, flashing and off.

This is how they will look at the bottom part of 900D.

Normal mode of any color


Propellers (OCN didn't allowed me to upload animated GIF, so FILE IS HERE)






How to do this with ONE button for all fans (one push changes the mod, the view)?

It's all theoretical, but should work

What you need:

1) At least 16 fans for top configuration: 4 for bottom rad, 4 for the internal view of the top radiator, 4 for the top view and 1 for the back of the case. Also 3 for the front view, if you need.

16 fans total.... Other side of the case could be lighted up, but not everybody likes it.

2) Lamptron or Bulgin 16 or 22 mm Momentary Switch with the 2-pin cable, like for motherboard for power\reset.

3) 16x long 3-pin fan cables (extensions)

4) 1x fan splitter from one to 4-5

5) 4x fan splitter from one to 4-5

6) Soldering-iron, solder and heatshrinks. Also cable stripper or nippers

What to do:

1) Cut and strip the switch wire, then first fan splitter wire

2) Solder two wires into one to create long switch-splitter

3) Cut all fans button cables, cut fan extensions, solder them together one by one

4) Now you have 2 cables per fan: fan cable and switch cable for the Bulgin\Lamptron switch

5) Connect every switch cable to fan splitters, then connect the spliters to the main hub (splitter) in the switch

Now you can change lighting mods on all fans at the same time.

Sure, you have to look that you are soldering the same wires on differrent cables to connect the same lines, the same pins.

Hope this will help

Doesn't match at all the design of the 900D imho.

The case is designed with straight lines, the "square" shape of the case look really nice, but the LED design of those fans break everything, again, imo.
This kind of tips & tricksis nice and still good to know btw.

Think I've outgrown LED fans, but that 900D certainly is gorgeous. Thanks for the pics man, Looks so much better filled with nice red accented gear.smile.gif

So George, will we ever be able to buy solid RED top bars for the Dominator Platinum? Same RED as the Dominator GT? Please?redface.gif

Just a glance at the photos above and its easy to see how this RED build would benefit by replacing those shiny aluminum top bars with some Dominator red.

To match the fans and the cables. Yea I know we can just paint them ourselves. Looks like I'm off to Home Depot for a can of spray.smile.gif

You can order the painting in any company. Lighting is white, so the color depends only on bar. Easy to make smile.gif

As far as the fans not going with the theme of the case - I think the red (especially in the 3rd lighting style) matches with the sleeved cables - gives the impression that the fan centers are components linked by sleeved red cables... So if you had cables in a different color, just change the lighting to match!

(and this is from someone that won't personally use LED fans or interior lighting of any kind ever again...)

Not sure why, but today I'm just loving my H100i more and more. Thanks again George.




On a sidebar: It seems the best chassis designs are currently coming from California. The rest of the world just copying anything that George and Jim are producing. Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery.smile.gif Go Corsair! Go CaseLabs!

I need a decent new review, or at least a detailed unboxing, to keep the hype down xD
I want a Corsair case to fit my big xlATX!
