Unit: LK202-24-USB
Software: LCDC
Difficulty: Easy <:)
Other: Had to split the LCD and controller to make it fit, due to the restricted space behind the CD-Rom drive in the shuttle, also didn't want too much of the tray to be covered when the drive is open due to the big recess that would be needed to fit the whole unit. Relocated the eject button to the back of the case in the Wi-fi hole.

My Half-Life case...

Post by Eddiie »

Unit: MX414
Software: LCDC
Case: Chieftech
Difficulty: Medium
Other: I added LEDs using the GPOs.


I was really inspired by the case here:

So I tried to make my own...

Case is not finished yet, but you can go here for a diary...

The Fan bus above the MX..... I did not have a very steady hand... and messed up the text above the switches, will redo this someday... Anyway, there is a 4" UV Neon tube behind the UV Green plastic (cut up old CD case) that makes the letters glow, kinda cool.

I made my own water temp probes using the Dallas 1 Wire things. Just need lots of silicone and a sharp knife.

The MX controls the radiator fans, fans on the RAM. 6 Temp probes, 2 for water (in and out of radiator), one on Chipset, one on each RAM stick, and one ambient temp probe just under the radiator.

More pictures soon...

Spent a LOT of time on this, sleeving the wires, shrink tubing, etc... Can tell though. hahaa over 200 rivets which did not turn out looking the way I wanted... Oh well.....
