Great work! May I ask where did you buy that hex mesh from? I've tried to find some Fin suppliers for it but so far no luck.

Well not sure how much but I believe I could find use to it.

I'll PM you later when I find some time to work on my project once again. My workshop is located about 450km away from me so no fun at the moment.

But thanks for the information!

Thanks, its a lot easier than welding, and if you make a mistake just drill it out and redo it

further progress :)

back as promised

Almost forgot to update, have another project that I've been working on for the last 5 months. Can anyone guess what it is? Just got the "table back from a workshop that leveled it for me. So now i just need to get it assembled and it should be good to go if I just can figure out how to use it


Back on topic

Started sanding the edges, tried a lot of different machines and files before getting the result i wanted. Still need to straighten up the edges but wanted to mill the fan controllers first in case i make a mistake and need to redo it.



Milled away a bit of material to get the psu as close as possible to the back of the case to make as much room as possible inside the case


Started disassembling the new lamptron's


Very easy to take apart


In the preview yday you saw the milling so no need to post more pics of that, the controller fitted!


Had to power it up





After looking for leds for the acrylic and realizing buying "computer leds" are way too expensive i started looking for other options. Found this through a company in Finland. I don't know the price but it should be less than 50€ for 5m of leds. These are 15,6W/m so should be plenty of lumens


The Leds can be cut every three leds and cables can be soldered on straight on the copper tabs, 8mm wide and 2,5mm high. The best thing with them is if you have a 2cm led strip or a 5m led strip all you need is 12V.



Also have milled the front acrylic, milled a 3mm gap to place the leds in, a nice tight fit.


From the top


Full 12V, probably need to run them on 8V, otherwise with 2m's of leds it will look like a nuclear power plant


As low as it goes.


Still need to sand the acrylic edges to make it more smooth and spread the light even better, but it's a good start.

Does anyone have a suggestion how to get good photos when photoing the acrylic? They are super red but turns kinda orange in the pictures

Think that's it for now

Awesome. I love acrylic-lit LEDs. As for photographing them...no, not really. I'm not a big photography buff. Sorry :/

Been quite busy the last few days having time off work in order to be able to finish the mod for the competition.

Started with some motherboard raisers, was gonna machine them in aluminum but then i found this nice red 20mm plastic bar. Not the right red but they won't be seen after its installed and it's so easy to machine in plastic.

First i machined them to the right diameter


Drill and tap


All done!


Test fitted the pumps and the rads to check for clearance issues


This looks a bit weird, but its in the middle of the case. Had to cut some space for the cables from the psu, this should be enough.


All sanded and ready to get glass blasted


Glass blasted and ready to be powdercoated


It looks a bit uneven but its smudges from me fingering it, i didn't see it but it shows up in the photos, will clean it off before the final shots!


Radiator box, or whatever you would call it


Rear side of the same part


Almost assembled


And some final shots of the case itself, I really like the way it looks and glass blasting the acrylic made a really matte finish which hopefully will hide the single leds and give an even light throughout the acrylic.









Still need to cut slots in some of the acrylic to be able to install all the leds.
Also need to make something to hold the GPU's in place, i know what i want now so I just have to fabricate it.

Stay tuned for more updates
