    The package from Phenoptix has arrived!

    Phenoptix is sponsoring with 32 red 3mm LEDs that will be used to light up the feet and the back of the motherboard.

    Looking forward to seeing them in the feet, I see the smoked gay is in the lead, wonder if the typo has anything to do with that!

    I exclude smoked gay, so I'm pretty sure I'll go for the red plexi ;)

    Because the old feet came out a bit smal, i decided to make a set of new ones.

    This update wont be that interesting since you've seen this part before.

    This time I used a 57mm hole saw, which means that the diameter of the feet got about 1cm longer than last time.

    I got wires, tips for det soldering iron, experiment card and 3mm LED-holders from Clas Ohlson yesterday, and I've done some work on the frontpanels.

    The guy I'm planning to order plexi from is om vacation, but I think you get the idea of what the feet will look like...

    The outer frontpanel...

    I've cut the motherboard tray so it looks a bit better, and dont use to much of the space at the rear end of the case.
    [​IMG]

    And here's a test to show you how the LEDs will be mounted on the motherboard tray...
    [​IMG]

    I've also made a test on how the fan controller will be mounted on the front panel, and I hope to post som pictures of that soon.

    What do you think about the project som far?

    But anyway, here's some pictures of my new motherboard, CPU and RAM-modules :)

    I've got a pair og WD Caviar Black 1TB 64MB as well, and pictures of does might come later.

    Sorry for taking so long, but here's a new update!

    Testing the LEDs for the feet:

    Mounting and testing of the LEDs on the motherboard tray. Unfortunately 2 of the diodes seems to me a bit defect, and on of them doesn't work at all :(

    The content of the package from performance-pcs.com. Unfortunately I got a 3mm thick panel of acryl instead for 5mm thick as I ordered. Therefor I ended up buying 6mm thick clear plexi for Clas Ohlson.
