Fan is now all lit up and works. Hope the fan connector of the power supply gives out 5V and not 3.3V smile.gif

Hi.

I started to work on lighting... So aim was to create something that would give the light to the under side of the motherboard. Like you see under those tuning cars.
Heres the first try.

Cabling design sucked due to can't insulate the connectors easy enough.
Heres the second version.

Now this you can't short even if you wanted to.
I gave it a small go and I think I need to do some work on how bright the LEDs are. So the ones I bought I just got white LEDs and did not care of the other values. Might need to get some that are more bright and operate closer to 5V range. These burn in 5V and are not too bright under 3.3V.

Two things.
  1. Is the idea sound?
  2. How to get them more bright?


All suggestions and tips are much appreciated smile.gif

Added all cooling elements to the motherboard...

Not happy with it... Hardware is a bit old so the chipset cooler is chrome and different brand then the rest. Still better then the original blue heat sinks. Wonder if I should paint them white...?
Also noticed after installing and ripping the package open that I had ordered the wrong CPU cooling block. Brand is EK and it is acrylic but the metal bits are copper and not nickel like all the rest.
Hope the Mayhems Aurora red will cover the copper bits and while the system is on no one will notice.

My advice on the LEDs- run them on 12v, 3 in series with the appropriate dropping resistor. Should be around 86 ohm. You should have the specs for your LEDs, and you can toss that information into any online LED resistor calculator to come up with the resistor value.


You should also build them in bars and mount them closer to the edge of the motherboard. Use some frosted acrylic, 20% white acrylic, or a sheet of matte mylar film as a diffuser.

Subbed, great work keep it going! thumb.gif

Thanks TLHarrell for the tips. I'll give this a go in Version 3 of the motherboard under lighting smile.gif Good thing I superglued the Version 2 in place biggrin.gif
When in doubt, SUPERGLUE smile.gif

Did some tubing and noticed that it flattens super easy when bending... Some say fill it with sand and warm it up and bend. Some say use a cable inside while bending and warming and then pull the cable out. Hmmm....


Did a holder out of Acrylic for the Reservoirs. Got two cos it just looks better than just one smile.gif
I'll put LED lights on the Holder so it will light them up from the back of the res.

I use 3M silicone tape for mounting. Grips like crazy to even wavy surfaces, the LEDs, everything.

Sorry for not posting anything. Finished the water cooling loop.

Here is a small video with some BeeGees smile.gif (Randomly picked)

This video was shot right on the first go. After a week or two the tiny little particles the Mayhem liquid had in it are now all having a party in the GPU cooling block smile.gif Liquid looks thinner and more translucent than on the video.

The power supply is a lot of work. Sleeving is not easy. Redone the whole thing at least 3 times. Ordered more heat shrink and all. This quality just needs to be enough smile.gif

I'll post some pics ones the thing is ready.

Also working on the lights. I now have all the needed components for this.

Yeah, the irridescent/pearlescent particles fall out of suspension in a pretty short time. I wouldn't recommend using them except for showing off for a couple weeks, then drain them out and put in fresh coolant. When I go watercooled on my build, it'll be clear colored only, no other additives.
