Quick Blue Case Mod

Recommended Posts

I wanted to do something quick and easy so I took a 12 inch blue LED strip intended for a car, took it out of it's tube, and wired it into a molex connector.

The light had different flashing settings controlled by a switch, but I had no place to run a switch to on the computer. As a result, I soldered it into my reset button (Pic 1, the soldered wire, Pic 2, the Reset Button on the front)

Pic 3 show the case lit up with the blue bar - I wanted a low effect since I have two other cold cathodes in there (turned off for this pic) that light up the room.

Also, the cables are messy because I recently installed some temp gauges in the empty 5.25 bays (in regular PC Support forum)

*** - I got bored with the colors in about 30 minutes so... without further ado

MULTI COLORS!

So - once again a completed project! "Why all the lights in your computer?" - you may be asking! Well, I'm DJ'ing this Friday night and I had to get the rig ready for a party.

The flashing mode in which the lights go from top to bottom, to top, and so on (one LED at a time) looks great since the lights change colors!

That looks sweet, Where you get the music from. I like your case.

All ripped from CD's and the magic of the Internet - it's all 80's music though, so I had a lot of it on my PC already

Don't be knocking the 80's music - it's the best because anyone can sing in (anyone could make it) and the words are easy to understand!
