Just a reminder about UV lights in your case, they do make you case look cool... however you should make sure the lights from your case are not right in your face and you should not put them on your desk right along side your monitor.
Quote:
Most UV light sources have the potential of causing photokeratitis (eye injury) with only short exposure periods and should, therefore, be used in a manner which limits exposure time.
Reference

Photokeratitis
Quote:
Photokeratitis or ultraviolet keratitis is a painful eye condition caused by exposure of insufficiently protected eyes to the ultraviolet (UV) rays from either natural or artificial sources.
Reference

I am not being a nag, 20+ years being in the computer industry and my No. 1 rule was look after your eyes, I want you guys to be playing computer games for many years to come.

And just on a side note, if you are a gamer that plays through the night with the lights off and nothing but the glow of your monitor and computer case. Red lights help preserve your night vision and helps reduce stress on your eyes at night time.

Just think about the placement of UV lights thumb.gif

I guess I lean towards cold cathode because it's a little cheaper than the NZXT rope. Since I have an H100, it seems like a cold cathode in front of it would be pretty blocked by the radiator and wouldn't give much light to the motherboard and heatsink. So I was thinking something like this...



Or maybe it would be better to mount two cathodes to the actual door, just above and below the windows. Wish I could see a picture of somebody that has done that with white leds. I want good lighting, but I don't want to wash everything out.

But I'm still not even sure if I'm going to get very even light coverage if I mount the cathodes like that. Maybe I should just get the NZXT rope...but I'm just worried about coverage. I've seen a lot of pics where they use the rope and it really illuminates the edges of the window, but the center of the motherboard, gpus, and heatsink are all pretty dark.

It does seem like getting a white led 120mm fan really helps with the lighting though. Ugh...I hate this.

Hey, I put mine beside the h100 radiator, you cant see it, plus it gives light to the whole system and if you buy sharkoons cathodes, you get a handy dandy rocker switch you can put where ever you please...

Love the white! My next buy is going to be some white extensions and white tubing to put over my h100 tubes.

I have a friend that's willing to sell me an extra NZXT rope that he has for super cheap, so it looks like I might go that route after all. I've gotta install my h100 this weekend and then I'll put up some pics for everybody!

Before you start cutting, remember that because of the air path limitations on the bottom of the case, if you put fans down there you should let the front of the case overhang the table it's sitting on so it can pull air from the front of the case. There isn't much airflow in the bottom of the case, and you can actually see the RPM of the bottom fan drop if you push the case back on a table without leaving a gap at the front.

Received 2 Lepa Chopper fans over the weekend. Install was pretty straight forward with only slight modification needed.

*

*

Just a small half moon cut out was required for full ventilation.

*

Used the rubber vibration suppressing mounts that came with the fans. Doing this limited drilling to only 4 holes.
2 for the top and 2 for the bottom. The rubber inserts fit nicely into the existing grill holes.

*

Looks great with the NZXT Hue


I also got the U-Channel. It makes all the difference in the trim.

Greeting fellow 600Tians!

The called me Zax, build my competent gaming from scratch a month ago. Been into PC since 1995 (where to play Doom u have to type in command in DOS). Been a geek ever since. Currently a mechanical keyboard freak. Here's my rig.



A significant change from this...





600T SE Silver
Core i5 3570K @ 4.2 Ghz
CM 212 EVO
Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H
MSI GTX 660 2GD5 OC Edition
Corsair TX650M
Corsair Vengeance LP 1600 (2x4gb)
Corsair Force GT 120gb SSD
WD Black 1TB
Seagate Barracuda 500gb+320gb
TPLink 300mbps Wireless Adapter

I've turned the top fan to pull in air to create positive pressure. Its quite dusty here where i lived.
As always guys, feel free to comment n suggest. Any input good or bad are always welcome.

I'm sorry, let me rephrase. I intend to cut holes for fans at the bottom of the window so I have the window and the fans. Best of both worlds.
