New case, and boggled!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey there all, first post here, nice to see some extreme rigs to give me ideas!

I have just invested in a Thermaltake Eclipse DV (Windowed ofc) and basically it doesnt have all the necessary bits to make it all work >_<

The 3.5" brackets for HDD werent there, and for the LED Noise Level Indicator I have a 3pin power but only a 4pin to connect it to from the Mobo. Anyone have any quick solutions for these issues?

Also the exhaust fan at the back is gonna be a ***** to put my ThermalTake Blue Orb II fan on the new cpu im getting soon. Will hopefully be a beauty rather than a beast once I have it finished, but its a loooong way away. Im more of a gamer than a modder but Looks count once the gphx are cooled

edit: Seriously tho guys, LED / UV / NEON which is the path to greatness?

First off, welcome to OC.net

When you ordered the case (bought the case) did the discription say what was supposed to come with the case? If it did, contact the vender who sold you the case and let them know you're missing parts.

LED, UV or Neon? Umm Cold Cathodes are popular and I believe that there are UV+ CC bulbs for sale. You should also try to combine colors for uber sexiness.

Thanks

bought the case mail-order, and when I described the problem, they replied with 'It comes to us boxed, and goes to you boxed' so they weren't helpful in terms of supplying me spare parts. As far as the manual goes, they appear to come with the case, but try finding an authorised ThermalTake Dealer in the UK who will supply you the spare parts for them .....

CCs are coming on the weekend, and using LEDs for all the fans, except the front Intake fan as this one is covered by the external NoiseLevel Indicator (which I cant get working with 3 pin to 4 pin!!!!!). Probs gonna go Red for the CC bulbs, with a UV thrown in for good measure, and then all the fans will have a Blue Led to them (including the TT BlueOrb CPU fan which comes when I install the new CPU/Mobo on the weekend).

After that it is cable tying/hiding, and then sit back and enjoy the show

PS - If anyone knows a dealer in the UK who supplies ThermalTake spare parts for drive bay installation please post web details, thanks!
