Window Mod - OCZ CoreXstream 500W

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Quick little mod I thought I'd share with you guys, as I don't see this often (maybe not looking hard enough?).

Got down to business to create a window mod by request from featherlouis199 in his power supply.

Perspex cut to size for window.

Window secured by strong double sided tape.

White LED strip fitted.

White LEDs connect OUTSIDE of power supply (Soldering iron was unavailable at that point).

Enjoy.

That unit is a unit made by HEC without a single review

Everything tells me this is a crappy PSU unless you know its not?

Doing fine does not make it good

If its bad enough it could die without warning

I was joking about you being mad biggrin.gif. it's not a hard guess as to whether or not the psu itself is to be considered "crap" as I think it's a fair assumption that it is given the players involved, but that's not the point of this thread man.

nice job on the window mod thumb.gif
