This is my temporary case I have been using. I had this for 7 years, and the thing has held up good, even with two kids abusing it. It has been passed through everyone at least once, and finally back to me. This will be my next project I do for the wife when mine is done. Enough of memory lane. Jeesh look at that dust
I needed to reuse some of the components that are housed in here. I have a 5850 that I planned on using, but I also need a power supply and a harddrive.
So I needed to do some work. The power supply has blue leds in it, and I of course can not have that. I was going to just get rid of all the leds and, but decided to put some small 3mm yellow in there, just for a soft glow.
So I broke the seal (good bye warranty) and pulled the fan out.
I really struggled getting these leds out...they must have known they where doomed.
They fought me every inch of the way. I tried everything, nothing worked, except
Some Gentle Persuasion with a screw driver. Luckily I didn't need them for anything.
Soldering on the 3 mm yellow leds.
Made sure I used some heatshrink to cover any of my mistakes with soldering.
All done getting ready to install the leds back in.
Had to use the glue gun to position the leds as the where smaller the the hole.
Once done, tested it all to make sure I didn't screw anything up.
You can barely see the yellow leds, they are brighter actually but I cannot turn off the flash on the camera (ever). But they give a soft glow, and that is all I wanted.
Back together, and working. Now I need to start to sleeve tonight.
