    Been a while since I last updated this as I haven't had much time lately,anyway I sleeved the power/reset switches individually

    Fitted back in the case
    [​IMG]

    I got two of these displays to monitor the water temperature in the two res's

    [​IMG]

    These are going in to one of the 5.25" bay covers which i've marked out

    [​IMG]

    And after a few cuts with the Dremel

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Before the displays go in I wanted to spray them white,which means dismantling them,to do this you need to cut the retaining slots on one side

    [​IMG]

    Cut out with a sharp knife

    [​IMG]

    Tha back should just pop open then

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Tha PCB removed

    [​IMG]

    Now i'm left with the piece I want to paint

    [​IMG]

    Sprayed and clear coated

    [​IMG]

    Test fitted in the cover

    [​IMG]

    Just need to reassemble them now,I hope to get this finished at the weekend that's if the missus doesn't get on my case about doing the garden,it's starting to get a bit wild out there :)

    I've reassembled the displays and done a quick test just to make sure they were ok

    Looking great so far :thumb:

    Where did you get those displays? or what are they at least? I've been looking around for something like that for a possible build on a Corsair Obsidian.

    Looking good. I like the sleeving job on the power and reset switches, very nice. Also nice mods to the LCD temp displays, you'd think they would make a white version also considering how well yours turned out :D.
