Does anyone know why the left door on my SMA8 is loose? If tap it slightly I can hear the door rattle a bit.

you can always make the lock system tighter or looser. If there is nothing hindering the closing of the door you can adjust the pressure either making the hole on the lock system larger or diminishing the hole making harder to open but also more tightly secure.

There was a build a while back that had GTA5 vinyl wrapping on it, turned out killer.

That seemed to do the trick. Thanks smile.gif However there is still some slight rattle when tapping on some areas around the door, but its not loose like it was before. Is that normal?

Thanks but don't worry if you can't. I was getting tunnel vision on white/red sleeving. The split sleeving would look awesome in black in my build too. If it's not too much trouble, if you can let me know what brand sleeving, size and heatshrink it was, I'd be very grateful.

Does it not split open when you bend it or do you use glue or heatshrink to keep it all together?

Thanks!

So my edge emitting, addressable, LED strip finally got here after wandering around the wrong postal facilities in Puerto Rico for a while, and so I did a little mock-up to see how it was going to work out for my lighted midplates in my S5 and S8S builds.

Used the same thickness acrylic as I did for the midplates and tomorrow, I want to see if it makes any difference if I flame polish the surfaces that the LEDs shine into.

The controller has 300 possible sequences if you count the color variations to base sequences, so I set it on auto to get the video, not the most appropriate sequences, but you get the idea.

It also lets me save up to 16 favorites.

This little test run has the strip connection at the lower left corner, but for the actual midplate, there will be 2 strips that start at the front center, move outward and down each side, and come together at the rear, right in front of the mobo tray.

Altogether, its about 7/16" thick, but it could be made a lot thinner, if it wasn't meant to be drilled and tapped to have pumps and heat exchangers fastened to it.

Anyway, always fun working on new ideas . . .

I don't think anyone can answer that question. I mean, are you using rattle cans? Automotive paint? What kind of sprayer? How many coats? Will you be putting in a clear coat? Are you stripping the panels first? There's just too many variables to give a good answer to that question, unfortunately.

Very nice! Do you have any shots of the controller itself?
