Looking very nice:

Temporary solution for mounting the acrylic:

I have tried to mount LEDs arround the case aswell, so i will write another update later. I bought a box of orange paint today, so maybe I can paint the front and the top finnished before wednesday.


Thanks to all sponsors!

Update 9

Image

The package from Aquatuning finaly arrived. They sponsored me with 1x Cougar Vortex V12S, but in addition they also sent me an another fan, witch is a Phobya Nano-2G 12 PWM Silent 1500rpm Red LED Double Blade and told me that I had to write a review of it. So i will write a review of it, and post the link to it here.

But enough text, here is some pictures of the fans I got from aquatuning:

And it looks like the Phobya fan has some candy with it :D

The fans, first the cougar fan:

And then the Phobya fan:

Thanks to Aquatuning! :D

Update 10

Yesterday I painted the front and the top. The temperature was not good at all, but I painted it anyway, since I want to have the paintwork done before The Gathering. So I might sand it down and repaint the case later. I did also mount the cougar fan Aquatuning sponsored me with on my cpu cooler. I hope that the the new GPU cooler is coming tomorrow. It is the same as the one I got now, but the one i got now has a broken fan. I did paint the cover on the gpu cooler too.

Enough text, some pictures here! :)

No good temperature...

Music is a must!

Ready for some paint:

And painted:

The gpu cooler cover i painted:

And some pictures of the case assemblied:

Thats all for now, stay tuned for the next update.

Thanks to all sponsors!

Great pictures and well done on your commitment!I think with those temperatures my project would wait until the summer. It's looking great. Hopefully your other bits will be with you now.

Update 12
Image

The secound package from Phenoptix arrived yesterday! :D
The content was 30 3mm Orange DIP LEDs, 12 3mm Orange prewired LEDs and 15 0603 SMD LEDs!
I guess they sendt me 3mm leds that is not prewired since the prewired is out of stock. I asked for prewired, but no problems with that, since i have changed my LED idea, so i dont need to remove the resistors now

Thank you for sponsoring me with these leds! :D

Here are some pictures of the leds:

Testing the DIP leds:

The SMD leds is damn small! I could not test and take picture at the same time. Here it is beside a 3mm led:

Thanks a lot Phenoptix! :)

Loved seeing our logo at the LAN event. Glad the new LEDs arrived ok, we have the 3mm 12V back in stock now if you need them. Let me know if you need any more gear!

I can tell you that many people was looking on my case and asked what my sponsors sponsored me with when they saw it. I explained a lot to them about the project. :) Out of the 5200 participants at the lan event, i think 100 stopped to talk with me about the project.

I dont need the 12V 3mm orange leds now, since i need the 3mm leds witch is only DIP and not prewired.

I think i need some more gear from you. Going to buy an arduino next week when i get money, unless you send me one :) Have a plan for my LED's now, but then i need an arduino mega 2560 R3, large prototype board and some solderless wires and one of these: http://www.phenoptix.com/index.php/wire ... -work.html. You are my main sponsor, since you have given me so many leds! :D
