Update 13

In this update I will post pictures of the stuff I did get for free and won in competitions at The Gathering. I will also post some pictures of the LEDs when I'm testing them where they will be.

First, the stuff I won in competitions:
Some of the stuff..
Image
Image

The logitech G9x:
Image
Image
Image

The Razer Orca:
Image
Image

The Silver Power SP-S650:
Image
Image
Image

The two gpu's i won, XFX radeon HD 6670:
Image

The Logitech Gamepad F310:
Image
Image


And the stuff I got for free with no competition at all:

7 mousepads:
Image

Some CAT5e cables:
Image

Razer cup:
Image
Image

And this one is hard to belive that I actually got for free with no competition at all!
Image

Yes, I did get an Corsair AX 1200W FOR FREE!! :D


I tested out some LEDs in the side on the acrylic sheet:
Image

I can tell you one thing, SMD leds is a hell to solder on a fan controller! I think I used about 20 minutes to get one SMD LED on the fan controller. I used the pins on a 3mm led to hold the smd led on its place and soldered at the same time. Damn hard..Anyways, here is the result:
Image

And thats all for now guys, stay tuned for more. :)


Thanks to all sponsors!

Yeah. I got a arduino Pro and arduino mini too. Playing with some servoes and dc engines now :D Controlling an rc car too. So it has not been much with this project lately :P A little bit led testing, but thats all.

Sorry for not posting updates all the time. Now I will be away for 2 weeks, but I can post some arduino code later :)

Have another arduino project to, an rc car. :)

Update 15

Sorry for not updating on a while. I got a lot off stuff to do at the moment, and for the last 2-3 monts I have been working and not near this computer, and now the school has started. But, I will complete it anyways.

I got some good and bad news. The good news is that I have ordered a sleeving toolkit, so it makes my sleeving easier. I am also going to order some extensions cables, or some new ones instead of sleeving the whole power supply. It makes it cheaper for me, and since I am a student, I do not have a lot of money :P
I also needs to order some new LEDs, since I was unlucky and burned most of them when I was testing my digital potentionsmeter. But my arduino code is done, but I got a problem that some LEDs does not light up on the exits on my shift registers. An unknow error.. But I will solve that too. :)

The bad news... My fancontroller went up in smoke, so I have to get a new one fast. My intake and exhaust fans are standing still at the moment, and my harddrives got a fan that is connected to the motherboard and is outside the case. And I might need a respray of the case. Lot of scratches from The Gathering, and also from some shipping, since an LCD monitor was stupid placed upside down beside the computer.

So, I hope you guys understand this, and I am sorry. I will get an update out before the end of this month. Maybe it will be some arduino stuff, or some sleeving. Who knows? Stay tuned

Thanks to all sponsors!
