I wouldn't mind soldering a new LED on there but seeing as that would be my first soldering project I'm too scared I'd mess something up. By using the above switch I can just cut a 22mm hole, get a harness for the switch and have this power/reset my computer but that leaves the two power/and reset buttons on the front of the case doing nothing.

you could just use the holes from the existing power and reset. Even if you just make a plate to mount the switches, and then cut out the area around the power/reset to house the anti vandal amulets. Simples.

I wouldnt be able to handle looking at that hideous thing hahaha! Sry I only say this so strongly because I deal with those switches on the busses I work with on a daily basis. I dont want to relate my computer to a city transit bus.
That is more like something I would put on my pc rig.

But what does 'anti-vandal' really mean? Those are completely different switches... My guess is 'not easy to accidentaly turn off'

 

LOLLL. I linked you to the same exact switch as the lamptrons.

They have the 16mm and 22mm versions.

That mountainmods link is the same switches. FCPU sells the Lamptrons i'm pretty sure. That mountainmods is just the Black w/Green Circle version

The 16mm's are good because you can usually use them for either Latching or Momentary. Momentary is for like power or reset, Latching is like turning a power switch on for something and being able to turn the switch off. 

 

They call em Vandal Switches because people hide them in their cars, and you can't start the car without pressing the switch.

That first link you posted all I saw was the toggle switch with the red cover (military style I think) and just busted a gut laughing haha. It makes sense that it actually wasnt what you were posting about. I should have scrolled a little further

Get your 24 pin, GPU powers into that hole between the 3.5 and 5.25 cages in the front.
Tuck your SATA cables under the tray and then down into that slot between the cages in the front.
Tuck the front panel headers under he actual motherboard as they are thin enough and no hot components near the bottom of the board.
Any small cabling and fan wires again tuck them under the motherboard until you can route them through a grommet.
You don't need to spend money on extensions and sleeving if you just want to make it neat. My psu has the stock sleeving on it and I haven't used a single extension in this build.

I'll probably take a better top down photo and maybe some side photos when I get home with my camera Crummy phone pic

LOLLLLL. The reason i linked you to the "Switches" Category page is because it had both 16 & 22mm. Generally modding resellers carry Vandal, Military/Duckbill, & Rocker Switches. I like Vandal Switches personally.

Because you have to remove the tray to get to the lower half of the case, I don't want to have to unscrew the board to do so.

Many props, super clean. I'd love to see the bottom half of your case as I suspect that area is what separates the men of cable managemnet from the boys. biggrin.gif
