Looks great, but move the light. They look so much better ambient than as a lightsaber. Unless that's what you were going for, Skywalker.

Looks really nice :) Might want to remove the..err..loom? or w/e that is for the 20-pin connector, and sleave that.

I'm probably gonna grab one of those mini-fit (the pins in a 20-pin connector) remover coz my fingers were getting really sore last time I took one apart w/a staple..

Keep it up :)

You should still work on hiding that beautiful sleaving job tho, because it will kill the air flow threw your case.

/\ I'm 31C idle and my smart fan isn't that audible. So I don't think it matters.

@eobard Crazy would make a great senior. Heck of a personality. She's lovable one minute and the next she's just what her name is. Bounces all over the house and is quit entertaining. :)

Hey guys it seems that I can hear one of my wd 80 gb se spinning. Haven't noticed it before. Maybe b/c my fan isn't going as fast as before???

The only way the cabling could have screwed up is if I got the red and yellow reversed right? I tried to keep both the grounds the same. I'm pretty sure I did. Just a littel worried I did something, but I don't think so. Do I have reason to worry?

If you put +12v through the +5v connector on your hard drive the only noise you'd hear would be the noise of your smoke detector going off. It'd kill the drive within 5 seconds. I did it to a floppy once, trust me.

As long as the red and yellow wires stay where they came from, I dont see a reason to worry.(You triple-checked them, didn't you?)

Unless You've got some special power supply that seperates the grounds, most PSUs have one tie point for ground on the mainboard of the PSU.

BTW, sleek job with the light and all. I would have put the light up high in the case to make more ambient light though.
Still, a nice job just the same.

Why does it seem that a LOT of overclockers have cats?

Nice job on the sleeving. Now you might add a CC in the bottom to get a clear light on everything.
