[OCN's MOTM May 2013] ROG Gene V inspired TJ08-E mATX - Page 9

post #81 of 862
besides more distance between the LED's and the plexi, I have no idea.


Looking good so far smile.gif

What would a light sanding to the underside of the plexiglass do? To make it frosted. If this helps then maybe use multiple thinner layers of plexi with all the surfaces frosted (sanded) except for the topmost surface.

I can give this a try. The plexiglass is already white, so I do not know if it will make much of a difference.

I have also had a look at what distance is needed between the white plexiglass and the LED's, and it looks like 2cm (almost 1 inch) distance is required. I might have to rethink the design. frown.gif

subbed! also about the leds, possibly a sanded down clear plexi glass layer (or pretty much anything translucent) should overcome your problem thumb.gif

Try position the LED's on the side/edge of your frosted plexiglass. Not sure how thick of the piece you have but that should diffuse the harsh LED light into an indirect glow. You probably only need one of those LED strips to achieve the effect.

I bet if you took the thing you've got, and put another frosted (or white, whatever) piece a couple more cm about it, it would look diffused enough. Double diffusion, ha, that could be a really crummy band name.

(ps, made a build log biggrin.gif )

Update

Thanks for the tips guys, I am still inspired to fix this smile.gif

Oh, BTW, I have a small update in the form of an aluminum plate which will divide the 5.25 and PSU area with the main chamber. Looks something like this.


Thanks for looking!
