    [Project Log] Wife said, 'Get rid of that nasty computer case' desk pc

    now that I have moved house and got things a little settled. I spent the xmas break doing the desk build. I am happy to report that I have now completed the build. A full gallery of the pictures can be seen here. Unfortunately I had a bit of a mix up with my web hosting solutions so have...

    adding an extra LED to an LED strip

    Pretty much what I expected at this point. Moving house right now so everything is in boxes. The controller I have at the moment is usb, so 5v. The 5mm led is four pin 3 anodes and a common cathode. So I'm off to a good start

    adding an extra LED to an LED strip

    I have a d5-photon-270-reservoirpump-combo. it has a hole for a 5mm LED. It came with a boring one colour LED which obviously my first thought was to swap it for a nice RGB one. In my build I already have a 5050 RGB LED strip in my case and I was considering connecting this new LED to the...

    NVIDIA Announces The New Titan X

    I never saw a hint of the board on that promo video. I think it was all just shots of the cooler.... after the 1060 not having SLI. That was the first thing I was looking for

    so with the USB port issue still rolling around my head I decided to crack on with another portion of the desk computer, the front fascia. After measuring up the size of the rad I cut out a new drawer front The rad has to be mounted slightly off centre as the chambers for the inlet and outlet...

    Thanks. That type of cable was my first find and I was going to screw it to the plate but, on reflection, I liked the cleaner look on the front portion of the plate. I've already found a slight variation on the cable posted in your link here. My thoughts now are to get some square nuts or...

    taking advantage of the long summer evenings I have surged on with preparing parts. I got these sexy lian-li fan grills which proved quite hard to find in stock anywhere. I love the honeycombesque mesh and the rounded edges. But I could not find any templates for cutting holes for them and the...

    a flurry of activity recently. I started work on the top section that would house my exhaust vents, fan controller, power button and USB ports. I cut the rough design but have left the back long so that I can bend and trim it later. I started withe the hole for the 5.25 fan controller The edges...

    I found a great site for getting pre-cut shet acrylic and other materials plasticsheets.com. Great site with lots of customisations on the order form: at 10mm thick I'm told that this sheet may be bullet proof!! not going to try it though :)

    still tweaking the design so no real life photos yet. Itching to get started on this but, as with all projects, get things right before you pick up the tools. The top section had to be a window as this was one of the main features of the desk build (plus the boss wants to see lights), but along...

    Where are the pretty pci-e extensions

    guess I'll be buying two ugly ones then, in case I ruin the first one when I add braiding to it. thanks for the info. Kind of makes me want to do a poll now to see how many modders would be interested in this product.

    Where are the pretty pci-e extensions

    For the first time I am considering adding a pci-e extension to my build (for a good reason) but there do not seem to be any on the market that are anything but plain old ugly. In this day and age of braided, coloured, uv active cables, has no one started selling aesthetically pleasing pci-e...

    I considered this for a while, but when tested in the mock up several new problems came up. Simply shifting the mobo right until it touches the mounts for the res did not give enough clearance for cables running into the I/O, putting a lot of stress on them. I thought about raising the res and...
