I also prefer the idea of velcro as it's much more easily removable in terms of the res then screws.

Yeah, I understand. Do be sure to clean the res and the case pretty good with alcohol before applying the industrial strength velcro to make sure it adheres solidly, and that stuff will hold it. I've seen a few short ~6-8" strips used to mount a 32" tv to the wall and after a yr or so hanging there it didn't want to let go. We thought we were either going to break the TV, or rip a hole in the wall, or both. We eventually managed to get it loose by using a long flat prybar like roofers use to remove shingles.

fwiw, I'll be using the velcro too, but, as I explained quite a few posts back already, not-so-much because I would really mind drilling holes, but because I'm mounting a Photon 270 D5 pump combo and I'm hoping the velcro will afford me some decoupling and be quieter than if I mounted it solidly to the bracket. That's the working theory anywho.

Have a 85 mm rad in the bottom and a 45 mm rad in the top with three sets of fans and still ~5 mm of room between the rads and my 360, just used velcro to secure it smile.gif
Sounds good. Write it up as a FAQ and I'll put it in. thumb.gif

Only potential problem is as FAQ get bigger getting peeps to use search function to find what they want in FAQ. biggrin.gif

I think I have figured out a RGB solution for the front and top panel LED. Ordered me a new strip and a controller, should be here Monday. Will update the guide with how to get RBG in the panels.

Sweet!
Is it real RGB in one LED or individual red, green and blue LEDs?

Well, don't leave me hanging. Where did you get the RGB LED strips?

I was planning on working on mine this weekend, but if I can get a look/link at what you ordered, I may hold off. I already have the controller.

USB-LED-1 RGB LED Controller


The narrowest I could find was some 3 chip 5050 SMD LED strips that were 8.1mm wide. or these 5050 SMD that are 5.2mm

The narrowest 1 chip 3528 SMD was 8.05mm strips.

My solution is based around the good ole 5050 LED strips. My quick test was successful last night. I actually might post a lil quick guide later tonight that will explain what I did (should be enough for most users). I will also be finally making a video on the RGB with Bill today so that we can get that uploaded on the youtubes.

Oh man, just when I thought my Enthoo build was finished, Jesse's gotta go tempting me with new ideas! LOL Can't wait to see what you've got up your sleeve now!

I don't think those are widths, I think the measurement you're looking at is depth. I believe that website is expressing the dimension as Length x Width x Depth

I don't think you're going to find a 6mm RGB strip

You are most likely right on the 5050 @ 5.2mm. I just saw the "Dimensions: 500cm(196.85") x 1.6cm(0.63") x 0.52cm(0.2")"

Yeah, I think that's 16mm wide and 5.2mm deep (probably measured at the thickest junctions)
