    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! :thumb:

    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:

    Oops :blush:

    Blue LED fans and ugly gold grills removed

    Blue tinted plexi removed

    New clear plexi (still with protective cover)

    [​IMG]
    Fan only connectors removed. I used these to wire up the LEDs for the fans

    Grills replaced with chrome wire grills. Ugly 230v sticker also removed.

    Why didn't you remove all stickers? That warranty and Active PFC? I think those aren't much prettyer than the 230V-sticker ;)

    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.

    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.
