    learning how to do something is never a waste
    - unless you keep making the same mistake every time

    I am glad that you like the case and you follow the project almost from the beggining.

    Now back to work.

    I drilled the hole for the power button on the front of the case.

    Hello everyone.

    Today i had some time to work with the power switch. As you can see below i have used a different kind of sleeve is this build. You can find it on gardening supplies stores. Its a gardening tube for watering the plants with drops. Its very cheap and durable and it also gives a very good result.

    :thumb: Black PVC hose is great. I use the small 1/4" stuff all the time instead of sleeve. It's tricky to get more than 3 wires through it, though.

    You may have to make those latches custom. All they are is a spring-loaded hook.

    I fixed the link, you can try now http://community.coolermaster.com/index.php/topic/15569-razors-edge/

    I am glad that it came out nice with the first try, because i had mesh for only two side panels, so if i messed up ill had to wait for around 20 days or more

    Cheers

    This is an old RGBW led tape i found, its super bright and it works like a charm with my RGB controller.

    Since i wansnt able to sort the things out with the LED controller, i order a new one and the mean time i decided to work with something else. I decided to change the brown anti vibration pads with the white ones. Tomorrow ill sleeve the cables and work with some custom stickers.
