Thanks for the parts list, will look it through. I really wanna start out and try something like this, but i have no idea how to plan such a thing. Maybe I just get the case and go from there haha.
It is a sick build though. Trying to get all black as well, but maybe highlighting it with some pink sleeved cables or something
keep us updated on how it runs
once again well done!
Just let it take the time it has to, my last project lasted almost two years of on and off time. Sometimes the skill and vision have to evolve (super deep lol) in order for a project to get where you want it to go.
Blacked out with pink highlights sounds awesome, I'm a sucker for pink and purple in clean, dark builds. Again, thanks!

Thank you very much! Sadly, yes. It's a rubbish strip that I made from recycled leftovers, I already managed to break it and repair it three times over a day or two. It's not glued in place, just placed between two P-clips.
The new plan is to make some sort of angled acrylic piece that I can glue a new strip onto, that should focus the light at an angle and hide it to the eye. I like the idea with a diffuser, but under testing it removed that sharp, star shaped highlight in the reflections of the nickel, it didn't look very "sharp". Maybe I did something wrong, or need to combine the two.
Either way, I really need to work on the whole light design, would like to give some light to the bottom parts of the case too, something subtle.
