    Try lowering the voltage through them with a resistor?

    Try spreading like 9v through the 6 of them, it should reduce their brightness.

    Hey, pistol_pete - you are an expert as being gas turbine engineer, tell me please - if I make this gap bigger - 1,5cm would that be a huge difference? Would it help a lot? I hope it would - I'm planning to recreate rear panel and move PSU 1cm on the right from the fans. I'm not sure how gas is spreading and getting sucked in front of the fan (I would have to smoke a cigarette and blow in to see how its going through the fan:D) but I hope 15-17mm would be a lot better than 5mm, correct?

    I preffer the naked release, but I know that it's not like the logo you want....
    Maybe try to sand the triangles a little bit, and if the light is too much you can sand even the leds without undervolting :)

    Yeah, I was thinkning about sanding the leds, cause I already soldered them with resistors and put heatshrinks on those so it would be a pain to change resistors.
    I will try to sand thoe covers and see how it will look. If it won't change anything I'm just gonna leave those leds naked. It is soooo beautiful when they nekaed, so delicate, and solid:) I love it - in real it looks 100% better than on photos:)

    Personally I think the LEDs look better naked, without the plexi triangles, just my 2cents. I have missed out on a bit, you are making some very good progress, looking better than ever.

    Some jealous forum member came in and gave it a really low star vote. I gave it 5 ages ago.

    Small update today - I put that chrome tape on bottom panel and mounted two acrylic pieces, SSD mount frame and pump plate.
    What I also did today is I mounted Noctua fans on new Feser radiator, which was also flushed today with de-ionised water. Fan configuration is pull.
    Just for a few minutes I tried the holes for screws and screwed Vertex to its frame. Looks pretty cool! I used small 5mm stand offs between SSD and frame to leave a space for air circulation.
    Take a look on all this stuff...

    Also after a long time waiting for its turn, graphic cards water block has been cleaned (ketchup and lemon juice did the trick:))
