Ok here goes. For the base I have used full black 5mm acrylic. The mirror is acrylic mirror which is really very thin. The sides again are 5 mm black acrylic. The center block is 8mm acrylic block. And the top is 2mm acrylic white sheet. Hope it helps

I think it needs to be a bit brighter, but I don't know if there are any better led strips around. Need to figure that out at well. Secondly the strip I used has a plastic coating which is water proof. Would the normal strip work out better?

Looks very bright to me, from what I can see in the pics at least. I would leave it. I think if it's too bright, it would overwhelm the rest of the build and stick out.....I mean, unless that's your intention then go for it.

This is cool.

I too made a light panel for my ST10, just wanted to ask, do you get the same brightness in the center as with the sides ? In my panel, the center has less brightness than the part near the LEDs.

Actually you are right. I think I should leave it at this.

Yes, I get the same brightness in the center. I think thats more to do with the middle block being scored across the length and breadth then anything else. Maybe you could try that.

I am able to get a nice even glow, other than the fact that near the LED's theres some extra light like spots because of the LED's.

Am going to try and fir the mid plate into the case today and also work on a new sata power cable for the drives. The old one wont work as that was made for stacked drives. In the SM8, the drives are not stacked, but will be in different holders at the rear of the mobo tray.

The light panel is awesome! Did the middle acrylic plate come scored or did you score it? If you did it, how did you do that? Is the scoring just to distribute the light better or another purpose?

Well, cause its my 4th water cooled build in as many years. While I was quite happy with the way things turned out on the other mods, I think this time this is going to be something special. And for something special, we always have to start with a good base canvas....

After traveling 16,000 kms in the last few days, the case has finally arrived.



Ha were do you life "on the moon!!" followe:)
