Day 17

so after my whole mobo thing, i got with dell and they sent me a new one the next day. switched it out and all is good. but i did notice somethinga bout the NB heatsink. my first one had the foxconn logo on it and this time. they sanded off the foxconn logo. heheh. i just find it funny. cause there are still stickers saying its a foxconn mobo.

and here it is with everything in! yea.. i know this isn't my project rig but i don't mind.

anyways on to whats important to you guys. valkyrie. here is a design i made for the led scheme. i went through quite a few revisions of how many leds and where to place them. there will be 3 white leds, 3 pink leds, and 4 uv leds.

and here is my victim. my ocz memory cooler. there will be no fans cause i like switching lights on and off. i cut off the tabs in the back and got to work with some sheet metal and a L bar.

here it is next to the original design sheet with pilot holes drilled. i won't be drilling it again until i get the LED holders so i know how big of a hole i actually need to drill.

a perfect fit into the memory cooler! no need for screws on the side like i thought i would need.

and the front of it. i hope this lights up as well as i think it will.. haha... thanks again guys!

here is a picture of my power supply that i was talking . see how it extends out? i've mentioned that i'm getting a ps extender from iandh. do you guys think this looks horrible? and if you do, should i just make a small tower for my psu?


so stayed tuned for the finished led module and the extra gpu.

I don't think it looks that bad, it's in the back of the case too. As long as its secure it's fine

OMG!! so sorry sledge!! i missed part of your post! as for the terminal board, you can find it at a radioshack. i'm sure there is one close to you too. as for how to hook it up.

you could just get a male molex end and use one wire for ground and one wire for 12v or 5v (depending on which you want to use) then get some spade ends and hook that up to the other end of the wires. then from there its just connecting or extending the voltage to the other terminals on the board.

Looking good. Yea, the PSU doesn't look that bad at all. Lol, of course there is a Radio shack near me. About 7 minutes away.

Day 18

so i am around 90% done with the led module. as it stands, i have all the LED holders in but i killed all of my leds cause i am an idiot and i forgot where the resistor was. but here is the back side of the led module.

front side of it. looks pretty good huh? well iono about you but i'm liking how it looks.

then an artistic shot of the front.


hope you guys like it too. now i'm just waiting for new LEDs to come and to start wiring all of it this weekend

well.. i actually have to empty out my loop on wed too cause of my new gpu... god i hope it doesn't kill my temps by too much.

and i love hex screw caps... yes! they are a pain in the ass but they look so damn good!


edit: question time! so.. the middle strip LEDs, top left LED, and bottom right LED are UV. should i wire it so that they all light up at the same time? OR should i wire it so that UV lights up with all UVs (like with the cathodes)?

thanks nate!!! new LEDs should come in by friday or maybe even thursday! i hope thursday!!

my question is this: i have two switches one for the UV cathodes and the other is for the LEDs. so with my LED module, i have UV LEDs and other LEDs. so should i light up all the LEDs on my module using one switch or should i use two switches, one for other LEDs and for the UV LEDs, i'll light up with with the cathodes. i hope that makes sense.

light the cc's off one switch, all the leds off the other, it will make your wiring easier me thinks, and doing it the other way has no real benefit
