It's a little different, works a treat! Thanks for the kind words.

The decal may be causing me some Instagram problems, my photos of MODZERO X all disappeared this morning.. If you search for #modzero all the images show up, but they are not on my profile. I've no idea why. Copyright maybe? I don't know... The black white and green does look great! I'm very happy with it.

UPDATE 4.0 - ADDON CUSTOMS


The guys at Addon Customs sent me a PM over on the LTT forums around the time I was working on MODZERO FORTY. They kindly offered to get involved with future projects. Addon Customs (check them out on facebook HERE) sell handmade LED strips (among an ever expanding range of other products). When I started this log the build was set to be complete in 48 hours, all the pieces were falling nicely into place and the 1070 was set for release. I reached out and sure enough, 48 hours later, I'd received a selection of made to order custom LED strips.

Addon Customs have a pretty cool tag line, 'OVER 1000 Possible combinations' just provide 'LED Colour - LED Strip Length - Cable Length - Sleeving Colour - Connector Type' and they'll get em made. I asked for bright white, 20/30cm, 40cm, black, 3-pin and that is exactly what I got. The LEDs turned up well packed with some tasty Haribo candy. I didn't have a spare PSU knocking about to get shots of the strips lit up but I've no doubt these will be used in my next few projects so it's bound to happen eventually.

STANDARD LED STRIP - I used the fan controller on the Phanteks EVOLV to control the lighting, all the strips Addon Customs sent me terminate in a 3-Pin fan header. This way I can dim all the lights through a single PWM header on the motherboard.

STANDARD FLEX UV STRIP - Same thickness and quality of the standard strip but in a white pcb UV, I toyed with this in the build being that the Mayhems Pastel green is UV. They packed a punch with a single strip behind the top Rad lighting the whole loop UV style no problem.

They also sent me two new products, which will be hitting their webstore upon it's relaunch on the 29th of this month.

Their new thin ultra bright strips are 250% brighter then the standard strips at only 4.7mm wide. Each LED is a beast. All their strips use a 3M foam tape adhesive, I'm fairly confident these wont peel off after 6 months. I put this one along the roof panel behind the RAD, it certainly is bright. I may be wrong but a ridged PCB version may be on the horizon.

SIDE EMITTING LED strips - I'm loving these! I had two Dazmode ridged strips cut to 15cm, one either side of the Rad. They looked great but IRL looking at the build with the side panel off hit you with direct sight of the bright strips. With this I was able to adhere them tighter into the corners of the chassis with the strips placed on the front/back panels rather then the roof, this meant the LEDs were pointing directly down toward the build. This made a massive difference, no more eye strain.

I've used a number of LED strips over the years, made my own, had them made custom and bought from the big brands. I'm digging these. Many thanks to Addon Customs. I'll be coming back for more.
