Do I have to say more ?
If that bit he is using is #561 then yes it cuts alunminum. Here is a small description of it.
That attachment you have for your dremel, is that the router type attachment? And did you cut your whole window with it? Does it cut steel?
The PSU is complete!
Basically, I planned to replace the fans. When I did, the LEDs weren't geting enough power. The fan speed was variable. I've isolated the fan LEDs and wired them straight into the 12v rail of the PSU. I originally used the fan only connector on the PCB, but this only provided 5v along the 12v rail. I'm beginning to think I had it plugged into the spare fan connector instead, but now the LEDs are connected straight to the bottom of the power supply's main PCB. Here are some pics:
Blue LED fans and ugly gold grills removed
Blue tinted plexi removed
New clear plexi (still with protective cover)
Fan only connectors removed. I used these to wire up the LEDs for the fans
Testing the fan LEDs on the chosen resistor
Stealing 12v from the PCB
The whole lot wired up
PSU as it was before any modifications
In the dark
Grills replaced with chrome wire grills. Ugly 230v sticker also removed.
Some night shots
I dunno something about white leds is just so silky smooth and elegant looking. Much better than before I think
White LEDs do look very good. Nice work.
Hmm nice Any plans on sleeving it's wires?
Awesome! White is the new blue tbh
PSU definately looks better than before, the white really brings out a misty glow
You will find out soon
Why didn't you remove all stickers? That warranty and Active PFC? I think those aren't much prettyer than the 230V-sticker
You can't see them when the PSU is installed
that sounds logical, but IMO you anyway should remove them ]:> 'Cause if you leave them there, someone'll anyway see them
The white LED's look sexy in the dark. How do they look in the light?
Love the way this is turning out man. I am either going all whit or all black in my next project. This is making me lean towards white, although my current project is white with UV green.
Those white LED's look awesome!
Why'd you put windows in the PSU if the case door covers it? lol Sort of a waste.
If you look at the before and after shots, you will see the PSU came standard with blue LED fans and blue tinted windows. Also, I'm not explaining what I plan to do next, so you don't really know it's pointless. It might not be
A small update, I've received the PSU sleeving and the fan controller. I've begun applying the braiding and will post pictures in a day or two when it's complete.
