    I wanted this top light to flash with HDD activity....Proving almost impossible without advanced electronics (which is like a diff language to me)

    i decided to cheet! and use the Same idea that i had used in the "STORM'D mod!

    The easy way was to use EL wire! and a "sound sensitive power supply" the sound pickup box can be sat right behind the HDD and pick on on the noise made when the HDD is in use and flash!

    Of course! to work in with the rest of the mod.... Blue and Red lighting is needed.

    .
    The sound box! the mic will sit right behind the HDD! and can have it's sensativity adjusted for best light effect.
    .
    [​IMG]
    .

    The HDD and CDROM bay.
    .
    The sound box will be sat @ the rear and the HDD placed in front as shown.
    .

    Next is to run the EL wire thru its new home.
    .

    .

    Temp tape is used and hot glue is applied and the tape later removed.

    .

    A qick test

    The excess EL wire is cut off and the next task is to wire it into the exsisting wiring.

    The exsisting wiring? Hardly! time to make a start :p the nervous system will run in the base of HP3! this is where the bulk of cons and switches will run.

    First thing to do is to add the light switches, these will control the RED,BLUE,and 3rd colour.

    As you guys can see! thyr's plenty of free lighting being thrown out and this is all thats needed to light up the front blades!
    .
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    .

    Using double side "Clear silicon" tape the front door blade is attached
    .
    [​IMG]

    .
    At the moment there is no eject switch! but if the middle blade can be converted for the atx switch , thyrs now reason why i cant convert the bottem one for the CDROM eject button :D
    .
    The tray is ejected to check for door position and tray clearances.

    The Middle and lower blades are added for a "looksee" :) and are not as yet funtional.
    .

    [​IMG]
    .


    Again! passive lighting is all that needed for the blades to light up!

    have to agree, those black blades look 100 times better than the clear ones.
    so happy to see the case all together now, looks amazing and so clean!
    only personal gripe is the front fans, have you tried what it may look like behind some black mesh?

    Great mod, as we've come accustomed to.
    There's just one thing bugging me.
    When you light the front "fins" the middle one doesn't get an even color so I guess there's either some use to those holes or you're going to cut it later.

    Keep it up.

    cheers guys:)


    A qick update!

    Heres what i came up with for the inclusion of a CROM eject button. The obviouse choice is to use the lowest front light blade.

    Its a simple spring loaded keyed sliding cylinder design.......


    The mats needed.

    [​IMG]

    Simple slide design

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    What will be the inner cylinder is keyed and the outer is slotted.

    [​IMG]

    The inner keyed cylinder is plex glued to the Front blade.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    For the assemble to lock together a clear nut is placed inside the keyed part.
