I got some from cool-cases....brilliant blue...so it's blue under normal and UV lighting, which it's going to make the coolant look really really blue. I hope it's not too blue where it looks black but we'll see.

Also, my damn rad isn't going to be here until the end of the week cause the guy shipped it 2 days later than I expected....

Oh well as long as I know it's on the way

Also, I modded a bare 3.5 bay drive cover to fit the rocker switch for my UV lighting so it's not lighting up my whole room at night

Thats a good idea with the rocker switch, I wouldn't mind doing that. If only I knew how, i need to work on my electrical skills.

I took it off of an old Circular CCL fan. Basically all you need is a Rotary tool to make the hole large enough to fit the rocker switch. The bay cover is plastic so the rotary grinder melts the plastic and is easy to grind out. The back of hte switch has 2 plugs which I took off to push the switch through

I opened the inverter unplugged the lines going to that cold cathode and I'm going to replace the inverter that is coming with my new UV lights with this one, though I'm sure the new one will work just fine

Fairly simple case mod.

I want to get a single pole double throw switch to do the CMOS switch mod so I do not have to keep opening the case to reset the CMOS

No, but when you are overclocking a lot, sometimes you need to do a reset every now and again and with this water cooling set up it's going to get cramped in there and the last thing I want to do is mess with trying to reset the CMOS and fiddling with that little jumper, when the mod is only going to cost me $3 (for a switch) and save me time and aggrivation

Lol, on mine i have a switch for the lights, a custom PWM 5 fan controller with a toggle military switch for each, a clear cmos push button, and all 6 outlets my soundcard has, all in one 5.25 bay cover

Anyway, about the armer.
My point of view - waaay overrated.
My opinion, buy the sexiest case known to man - the Temjin07 or TJ07 as its called, from silverstone. MAN THAT THANG IS SEXEH.

As for the rad i just snatched a brand new black ice Xtreme 3x120mm for 49.99CAD

Have fun with that beast m8

Well, still no rad but I know it's going to be a little bit late, so in the mean time I went and got some Blue Electric tape to use instead of the crappy heatshrink from my wire sleeving kit and I got myself a SPDT switch for my CMOS switch mod for my front case



Now no more fiddling with the damn CMOS jumper. I can reset it at a flip of the switch

Buy a Single Pole Double Throw switch (SPDT) @ Radio Shack or at a hardware store, then cut off the tail end of a fan with a 3-pin connection (because the CMOS is a 3-pin connector)

Wire up the 3 ends that correspond to the CMOS connection

Up - selects CMOS pins 1 & 2 which resets the CMOS
Middle - is neutral
Down - select CMOS pins 2 & 3 which is the standard position of the jumper

You might need to buy some extra wire since most fan wiring is not long enough and you need to destroy a fan in the process as well, if you have one lying around

And you'll need to drill a hole somewhere in the case to mount the switch, which can be done with a rotary tool (a must for any case modder)
