Oddly enough you can. When Aura Sync crapped itself the other day (too much on one header, even on a powered hub) I had no other choice than to choose a light pattern from the hub. It has mode buttons etc. Well, it stays red for about 5 seconds, then a flash of white spins around it. Which makes it glisten like a Christmas tree

BTW I found another foible with the case's design. So that's -

1. Terribly placed tiny power button you can not see until it's lit (but that doesn't happen until the rig is on pmsl) that you stab around for with your fingers shatting up the glass. If you connect a charger USB cable or what not? it covers it.

2. The large cylindrical posts are not extended out enough to cover a modestly sized pump top. It didn't just happen to me either, I have seen numerous cases of people having to improvise. Usually with aesthetics coming in last, so it looks awful.

3. With a rad in the right side (the finished side) and a fan on the bottom position the metal cover (painted bit) hits the fan and it won't go on fully. There's a poo joke in there somewhere.

Now the first two? OK. The third one? where do I even begin? how the F can you make and market a "water cooling case" that you haven't fitted with F-ing water cooling gear to make sure it all fits?

Other than that it's fine. Would have liked some way of controlling the wire flow in the middle, but given you can't access it you just have to blindly keep stuffing in it. Meaning when you look over the top of the rig it looks like hell. Which is why I have been picking my camera shots very carefully. Nothing I can't fix, but yeah yet another oversight.

Why they even bothered to put a pump mount in the other side though? where I made that cover? god only would know the answer to that. My Barrow top I had was tiny. Literally as tiny as you could make a DDC pump top and it would have been about 10mm too large.

I would cut the final panels today but when I came over I forgot my meds and I am starting to go into withdrawal. Not wanting to spend £40 in taxis to go back and get them I've done 3 days cold turkey and now I gots the brain zaps. Getting a free ride tomorrow morning. Then I can cut the three small panels I want. Which will also need edge polishing and etc because they will be highly visible.

Oh, and Antec. Smoked glass FTW. You got that part spot on.

OK well she's about as done as she needs to be in order to get decent pics. All of the other stuff is mainly just for my OCD.

Light on case off. Ignore the stupid RGB on the board I have turned that off in standby so many times and it just ignores that and farts rainbows.









Light on LED on.









Night mode. AKA full evil.















Videos incoming shortly.
