    Hello everyone. I need some suggestions where I can find some stuff I need. Two years ago I modded my Thermaltake Armor Jr and made this to the side panel

    [​IMG]

    To do that I used the system that was on this

    [​IMG]

    Now that I have purchased a new case the Aerocool Xpredator White I want to do the same thing . I want to make all 4 fans of the side panel of the Aerocool Xpredator to be powered by touch.
    Now I can order the same product of silverstone http://skinflint.co.uk/silverstone-cfp52b-4-in-3-module-a393500.html so i can use that system but paying more than 120€ just for that system seems quite stupid.

    Is there a store that sells only the touch system or something similar like that so I can make my mod.

    Is there a way I can make my own touch powered system for 4 fans.

    As you understand I want to do this so I dont have to unplug and plug 4 fans everytime I open the side panel of the case.

    Thanks in advance.

    Google for (spring) contact connectors and make your own.

    What Nexxo said, Or make some using folded metal like the negative side of a battery terminal.

    Find some old mobile phones and desolder the sim card contact assembly. Etch your own PCB. Hey presto.

    There's also the option for a miniature limit switch.
