    Great work.

    A comment about the Lamptron 611, great unit when it works... I have one, and the display almost immediately flaked out on me, pumps and fans appeared to keep working but the display show gibberish, and I was unable to adjust the settings. A bit of checking and I found that the face plate was shorting the contacts of the display. Easily resolved with some electrical tape and x-acto knife to insulate the face plate. The other thing I discovered with the unit, is it is very hard to plug in fans and sensors once the unit is installed. I had to unmounted the unit and pull it out to modify the the wiring, unfortunately, one the cables I had was barely long enough so I only had a couple centameters of play. I had it installed in a full 5.25 bay, you might be alright with the smaller mounting tabs you built.

    Thanks Dr. Coin..
    “ A comment about the Lamptron 611, great unit when it works... “

    This is the last word that can really be said about 611.

    Most of 611 controllers that my friends use , are problematic.

    611 was my friend's preference ,not mine

    I am using only FC5V3 at my worklogs , which I prefer.

    Our current assignment is to make front and rear side doors

    First thought of using special metal corner pieces at the corners to make the case more solid
    But the case is already solid.

    [​IMG]


    It was abandoned and Designed such a sidedoor and It was cut with laser from cardboard.


    [​IMG]


    Sidedoor is designed to be 1 cm smaller than the sides of the case.


    [​IMG]

    And it is thought to be unconnected and floating in space.


    The ears of the plexi doors will be bended at the corners.


    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]


    The plexi door drawn at corel . according to the cardboard and cut off with laser from 5mm clear plexi.

    I will to give a disconnected and floating in space view to the door
    To achieve this, long thin metal ( bras) feets were considered between the plexi and the case .

    [​IMG]


    These legs were made in 2 parts and mounted with screw.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]



    When these feet are connected to each other and to the case

    [​IMG]



    Such a view was obtained on the front side and on the back side


    [​IMG]
