    What's up guys ... Starting another project and this time based on Destiny 2. This time will not be scratch, it will be based on the cool H500P from Cooler Master. Seriously, I'm not exaggerating, live this case is very cool, check what has arrived for the project:

    Yes, the project will be based on the case H500P Cooler Master, which in my opinion combines much with the theme. Here are some pictures of this case:

    To load this machine, I received from Gigabyte the Z270X-Gaming K5, which is a beautiful motherboard and has the necessary for any Gamer:

    And starting a fantastic partnership, I received from Ballistix this wonderful memory kit of 4 8GB DDR4 2400MHz combs. This memory gets a lot of praise in the reviews, almost always highlighting the heatsink well design and the reliability of the memory, and being a Crucial, I'm content to equip this project with them. A very interesting thing is that I received the memories with different colors, being 2 gray and 2 red and without having requested colors and will combine very much with the design that will have as basic colors the gray, red and white. Thanks Crucial.

    And also from Crucial, I received the SSD M.2 Crucial MX300 from an impressive 1050GB, that is, 1TB of SSD to spice up the game. Look how beautiful

    Beginning to sand the carcass for the painting. Every structure will receive a dark gray. This part was made with 4 hands, according to the photos, because my teenager loves to play the projects with me ;)

    Well, that's it for now ... I'm a bit late with the project due to the rains, but as soon as I publish the continuation ...

    Placing neodymium magnets on the LED strip to facilitate placement and removal of the case, as the tapes end up over the covers.

    Welding the LED strips. I used an RGB addressable

    I used a sheet to mark the recess of that cover that covers the wires. I'll go over that to the acrylic and cut it into several pieces.

    Masking the case with a carcass already mounted, to make the details of the dirt, which is in the armor of Titan in the game

    As the Airbrush pen gave trouble and I did not have time to fix it, I ended up doing the dirt effect, otherwise ... I used a spray to throw water under the surface. I passed the spray in gray. And I came scraping with the rough side of the sponge.

    Follow a little of the electrical part. I used the RGB controller on the motherboard to control the color of all project fans. Here are the Y [/ B] photos I needed to connect them:

    I used an Arduino Uno to control the two LED tapes. Although they are RGB, I will use only the white color, but I will use the fact that they are addressable to make an effect.
    I used the empty HD bay to install the Arduino

    LED Strip Result:


    For anyone who wants to know the code I used, this is the one below. Obs, you need to use the FastLED library.

    Code:
    #include "FastLED.h"
    
    #define NUM_LEDS_PER_STRIP 107
    #define BRIGHTNESS  200
    #define FRAMES_PER_SECOND  140
    CRGB leds[NUM_LEDS_PER_STRIP];
    
    uint8_t gHue = 0;
    
    void setup() {
      FastLED.addLeds<WS2812, 3, GRB>(leds, NUM_LEDS_PER_STRIP);
      FastLED.addLeds<WS2812, 5, GRB>(leds, NUM_LEDS_PER_STRIP);
      FastLED.setBrightness( BRIGHTNESS );
    }
    
    void loop() {
    
    sinelon();
    
          FastLED.show();
    FastLED.delay(1000/FRAMES_PER_SECOND);
    
    }
    
    void sinelon()
    {
      // a colored dot sweeping back and forth, with fading trails
      fadeToBlackBy( leds, NUM_LEDS_PER_STRIP, 1);
      int pos = beatsin16( 13, 0, NUM_LEDS_PER_STRIP-1 );
      leds[pos] += CRGB( 255, 255, 255);
    }
