    @Mankz, thnx :)

    @jokkos, thnx :), really didnt know where to put it all, glad i had the space.

    @Supra55, thnx x2 :), window molding....thnx :)

    @tranc3, thnx :), the PSU came from an aspire box, ultra have an equivalent of it, so its a 480watt PSU, 24 pin + 4 pin + 1 sata + 4 molex connectors each with floppy connector, nothing overly huge and its a bit smaller in size than a standard PSU...should do nicely for my needs.

    @DeanMF, lol thnx :)

    All day today I have been working with fingers crossed and praying that all my efforts on soldering were going to pay off, and nothing was going to be destroyed through bad wiring, lots of patience , but its payed off, it all works, every light and every fan....<wipes brow>

    [​IMG]
    Added the power source.

    [​IMG]
    Something i didnt mention before is that, one the left and right side of the controller card, is 5 volt and 12 volt, so in the winter months i can switch the fans over for a quieter winter.

    [​IMG]
    Wired up the cathodes, and added the on and off switch for it into the case, so i can have them on or off...depends if they become annoying.

    [​IMG]
    Topside rear, all connected and waiting to be turned on...

    [​IMG]
    Same with the front...

    [​IMG]
    Of the three connectors, the furtherest is the fan the middle is the power and the closest would have been the cathode, except i have attached the power in a loop with the mains power.

    These next pics arent the best but it gives you a rough idea of how the lighting looks, these pics will be update and professionally photographed in the next few weeks , once future ne[]n is complete.

    Overall case appearance...

    From the front...

    [​IMG]
    More angled view...

    I still have to stealth the DVD tray and finish off the top panel, then its a matter of hardware installation, then its done.

    So i hope to have it done before the weekend is through.

    Thnx for coming to check out future ne[]n :)

    More updates soon

    Hardware still needs to be installed, and some other finer touchups, ie: clean case again

    2nd last update, installing the hardware and re checking a couple of things, making sure its all ok and good to go.

    Had a small set back...Bulgin power switch failed to work, tried re-plugging it to the motherboard in every single way, still no luck, then thought the PSU overloaded, did the screw driver test and it fired up, more time spent trying to work out the problem, tested the reset button, no lights working and it not working either...

    <Some time Later> wired the power button around the wrong way, simple fix solution, now its 100% working including leds, as to with the reset switch.

    Lights and fans still working....good to go on the installation of hardware.
