    Nice electronics skillz! I like how you made the socket from an old molex connector. Those perf board terminals are great, is there a name for those?

    you cut your threads much faster than I do. Why you don't buy a thicker acrylic plate and to counterbore the screw heads. The greatest problem is the price of the thicker acrylic plate.

    A rest aluminium...
    [​IMG]

    ...is just big enough to match the TFC Radiator.
    [​IMG]

    Here the Dremel works perfekt again. (I love that tool)
    [​IMG]

    Before the bending comes the Dremen again.

    Now it is time to bring the LEDs in place
    [​IMG]

    First: The drilling
    [​IMG]

    Of course: tree times
    [​IMG]

    The Back side view
    [​IMG]

    A other thing what will be done, ist the radiator bracket. To mount him in place I cut seven M5 threads.
    [​IMG]

    Mounted
    [​IMG]

    And here with the TFC products
    [​IMG]

    Illuminated:
    [​IMG]

    That the TFT can breathe I need some holes in the Backplate. For that reason I firt print the "COLD EYE" lettering on some labels.
    [​IMG]

    With the DREMEL and a perforated plate..
    [​IMG]

    ... I made some vent-hole-lettering

    That looks really cool, what do you think about those fans, I was comparing them to some Scythe fans the other day and for the price they didn't seem worth it.

    With the rod-nut combination I'm more than unhappy. Therefore I soldered the nuts to the rod (aua) :naughty:
    [​IMG]

    The cable from the front pane...
    [​IMG]

    ... pass thru the TFT...
    [​IMG]

    ... to connection aria .
    [​IMG]c


    For the connection I use a rest from the project "Rocklander"
    [​IMG]

    The result:
