    Okay I see you guys with these switches in the front of your cases to control your CC's and fans and so on, I searched over google and here for a bit and found nothing on whether I can make them or buy them or if there are kits. Sorry for the noobish question.

    An on/off fanbus is pretty easy to make - there are some guides on how to make them floating round the main bit-tech site - had a homemade one in my machine for the last 2 years and it worked a charm. Just replaced it with a 5 channel fan-speed controller which took a lot more work to make, but still cost less than to buy one. Failing that, you can find them at pretty much any PC hardware store these days. Depends on yr soldering/leccy skills or yr financial security i suppose ;)

    i built that one and i love it... for power, instead of a molex connector, i yanked the power conenctor off a floppy drive and hooked the rheobus up to the floppy power cable, that way i didnt lose a molex.

    If you want something really cheap that can switch high currents you could try a Diobus.
