Well today I got the ram correctly colored, and a few minor things done, which is about all I can do until the rest of the stuff is delivered.
Started with the boring ram...
stripped it down
Properly finished, the way GSkill should have done it! Even saved the spec sticker.
Installed - I'm considering buying 2 more sticks of the ram just to fill up the open slots. It's cheap stuff.
Tested and started to sleeve up the LED wires, had everything working until I sleeved the wires and the resistors fell apart. Pulled the heat shrink off the resistors and the leads were rusted completely gone.
That's the last time I buy the pre-wired LED's, I'll stick with wiring up my own from now on. Green LEDs look blue in the picture, but are quite green, I just have a crappy iPhone for pictures.
What else can I show tonight........ Oh the Samsung 830 512GB found it's final resting spot.
Here was my inspiration for the name change to the Green Rose (wife likes roses and green stuff, so what the hell).
Then I got a little crazy with it and free handed a rose onto the back side acrylic with 1/4" pin-striping tape. Looking at it now, it looks more like a tulip.
I threw it in the blast cabinet, and etched the inside of the acrylic on the back side and the inside top. It is transparent enough to see through, and you can see the rose in the etch on the side of the case. Wife liked it, so all good. The other side will stay clear so the goodies can be easily seen.
That is it for it today. Hope to get more done tomorrow.
