Thanks for all who voted for me in the Cooler Master mod competition! Got myself a 3rd prize
After a very busy Christmas I've made a prototype of the ram, did not go well at all but at least i've gotten started.
This is the design. It's basically the same design as the Dominator platinum ram but with a sandwich construction consisting of two aluminum sides with acrylic in the middle.
The aluminum part
One of the aluminum parts pressed together with the acrylic. Got decent tolerances on the parts so i just pressed them together with a vice, no glue needed
Made a red light bar so the ram would match the case better. Still want a white acrylic top with it only being red when its on
Installed without a lightbar
It looks the same with a lightbar. Think there is not enough light for the light to reflect all the way to the middle of the ram. I will experiment a bit more but if i can't figure it out i will leave it with just a red lightbar
With the red lightbar and the original part it looks like this. It's not too bad but a bit of the white light shines through due to the fact that the leds are further apart than the width of the lightbar. The red bar is the same width as the original one. Also gonna polish the entry surface of the acrylig to let as much light through as possible
