Push-pull XT45 420 or Pull UT60 420 + up to 2 push. - Page 4

post #31 of 37
Thanks for the advice! Fortunately, I didn't get any hardware with the case so I have to buy new screws anyway, so I appreciate the tip.

It's all M3.

some 6mm, some 8mm, some 10mm, and 14mm for the bays . . as best I can recall.

but depending on your case color, this is available in black and white, and while it's not quite tall enough for my setup, might work fine with a short base ring below it:
It would be OK with 38mm fans on 120 to 140 adapters without the added shrouds though.

I think I'm going to order one in white, and see if it doesn't dress up the top of the case nicely.

I'll post some pics later this morning of how I fit everything together.

It looks "Kick A$$":

Here's a few pics with the leds set to red, to go with my interior red accent lighting and red acrylic:









And if you don't like plain Jane fixed color lighting, there's always the fades and flash effects to switch to:


If that doesn't work right, here's the URL:

Very nice. How are you controlling the LEDs? I wanted to put together a microcontroller to do it, but I haven't quite figured out what all I need to do. I spent most of the day working on my build as well. I think I'm doing too many intermediate trial tests of things as I'm still not done. But I keep doing fitment checks of everything in order to make sure that I haven't violated something despite all my measurements.

It's just so much cheaper to buy an RGB string or 2 and a controller than trying to make something from scratch.

I bought 2 of these:

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/14107/lit-293/Phobya_LED_Flex_Light_18_Count_SMD_LED_Light_Strip_-_60cm_-_Multicolor_RGB_83120.html?tl=g6c77s126

and 1 controller:

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/14108/lit-294/Phobya_LED_Flex_Light_RGB_Controller_With_IR-Remote_83156.html?tl=g6c77s126

The controller has connections for 3 strings.

It took a bit of modding on the grill to allow room for the led strip at the rear, but I'm very happy with how it looks, especially compared to having the fans just sticking up like smoke stacks.

Yes, but if I can figure out how to do it with those TI Launchpad 430s it should still be pretty cheap (since each board is $4.30) and the lighting I'm planning on is in parts of the case that I don't want strings of them. The side benefit is that I can also interact with it with computer on the computer and have it change the color according to set parameters or what-not. It becomes a learning experience at the same time.

That puts a different spin on it.

I love building unique one of a kind circuit boards to do something in my PC than no one else can have, or at leasst go out and buy.
