  1. I found a good video demonstrating cool, natural and warm white
  2. For my pc modding projects I have found that i like natural white best as i think it is "the whitest" one. The cool white sometimes looks too blueish and the warm whites sometimes look too yellow. Warm white: Imagine the light from an incandescent light bulb (the ones that have a heated filament inside the bulb, not led:s or discharge tubes) Natural white: Think of the color of a sheet of white paper on a bright day (not morning nor evening). Cold white: Slightly bluer and cooler Tip: You can play around with your display's color settings and changing the color tempe
  3. MATERIALS - You can buy led strips with addressable leds that are only 4 mm (0.16 inches) wide. - Buy an appropriate led strip controller from ebay or make your own with an cheap Chinese arduino copy as i did with my diy rgbw power supply shroud. BUILD - You can use an acrylic sheet of the same thickness (or thicker) as the width of the led strip, that is 4 mm (or more). - Cut the acrylic to desired shape. - Sand the surface of the acrylic so that it is matte (for diffusing the light). - Attach the led strips to the end of the acrylic sheets so that
  4. Glad you like it! Post some pictures of your own version when it is done. Yes, I know the NeoPixel library is not great. I am writing my own code for controlling the leds. The NeoPixel library is easy for a complete beginner to install and use to test the leds with so I therefore included it.
  5. Hello, Here I will show you how I built my power supply shroud with beautiful RGBW lighting as seen in the pictures below. As I do not have a RGBW header on my motherboard i will control the LEDs using an Arduino Nano (instructions in the end). Amount of work: 2 hours (if you are fast). PARTS Acrylic glass (or similar). I used 4 mm or 0.157 inches thick. LED strip, 60 LEDs/meter. Bought 1 meter (3.3 feet) RGBW LED strip from eBay for $8.30. Note that RGB led strips are significantly cheaper than RGBW led str
  6. I'm Building my own system. Also, I'm building my own case from scratch (se pictures). By building from scratch I mean cutting out pieces from a sheet of metal, bending them and attaching them to a metal frame. The only thing missing from my system is a decent GPU. At the moment I am stuck with a nvidia gt 710 is comparable to the integrated graphics of the cpu (http://www.gigabyte.fi/products/product-page.aspx?pid=5756#ov) Motherboard: Asus B150m Pro Gaming CPU: Intel Skylake core i3 6100 Memory: 8GB (2x4GB) Kingston HyperX Fury Storage 1: 120GB SSD Storage 2:
