    Thank you all for the comments!
    Excuse me for I am a little diffused nowadays so thats why the lately answer. :rolleyes: And the PCB made last week.. it has a malfunction.. one wrong resistor, so it made some smoke. But it'll be fixed soon. :)
    In the last weekend I was at an event directed by DREMEL so thats why no answers and no time for continue the Gymkhana Mod.
    Here are some photos from the DREMEL promoting event so you can see what I do with other modders. The show was used to entertain the regular people. (so low-tech modding what you will see :) )

    Every spectator had the chanse to try out all the the DREMEL tools showed on the event.

    Some days ago I ordered cable sleeving (3 threaded like the mdpc-x but lower budget). The colors are green black and white. They will used to sleeve the entire PSU cable-to-cable.
    Still don't have PSU but I'm on it. I bought the sleeving earlier because it was a good deal :D

    Updating soon...

    -WORKFLOW-

    Day 26: 2011-09-26 / Task: ODD covering plate, Monster logo lighting (at last!)
    The cover made for the drive-covering. Its a bit translucent so it got a black paint-layer on the inner side then after it dryed its got a white layer paint on all the two sides of it.

    After some try I turned the lights on to see how its work. I was so curious about the lightning so I hope you like it too:
    (not final pictures - Just WIP installing)

    BTW: I glued some thin magnet-layers to the PCB-s bottom. Its a cool way to make it temporary sticking to the sidepanel. If I need to repair or modify the lighting it's just one easy step to get it off.
    I used the same magnetic way for the ODD-covering so when I need to screw someting in or out the ODD cage it'seasy to reach it. :)

    In the beginning of the week I got the package with the cable sleevings. I'll take som photos of them. In my plan I will sleeve every cable from the PSU to the fans. I hope it will be a perfect-looking quality sleeving but it's my first cable sleeving. Never ever have to sleeve :)

    Day 27: 2011-09-29 / Task: PCI Brackets
    Today I visited a nearby shop called Pc Gear. They got some modding stuff beside hardwares, PCs etc. I take the previously ordered SilverStone slot covers. I didn't have to pay for it because the shop's owner give me them as a support for my modding project and we talk about firther supporting. :clap:

    Awesome logo - how much G-force can the magnetic strips endure, before the LED strips fall down?

    Thanks all! :clap:

    Nutman - I can't tell numbers (Just thickness - 0.5mm) but its has the correct adhesion. Not too loosy and not too hard to remove - It sticks just the way I hoped. ;)

    Thank you for all your comments! :)

    I am back soon (hopely) with the cable-sleeving. I successfully get in contact with some famous HW manufacturers and it's looks like they will help me to put hardwares in th case. I am very happy and grateful about them because I am in need to them. To their support. Sadly my sources ( $ ) finite and I couldn't buy the stuff. Who is them? I'll show them for you if the sponsorship is confirmed and in process. ;)
