  1. Thanks. This is my third PC but the first one I built myself so I wanted to go all out on the setup.
  2. lol The same thing anything sparkly is for. It's fun to look at. Why do you think humans have lusted after gold since like forever ago? Thanks I only have the most basic wood working tools and already had a sheet of acrylic. But I did consider wood. That would have been the next step if the acrylic didn't work out. I needed to do things like not only mount the channel but also run the wiring. An empty box is much easier to do that with than a block of wood. lol No, I said I didn't have that option to have it made for me. I said "but if I was able to have my own
  3. Corsair's LT towers are neat and all. But not 200+ bucks neat for 2 of them, at least to my wallet. So I set out to see if I could make my own. They turned out well in my opinion. Certainly not as polished as Corsair's, but if I was able to have my own plastic housing made like they can, the costs would end up defeating the purpose in making them to begin with. But at least mine are taller and light better since they have way more densely packed together LED. I don't know how many are in the LT100 but mine have the full 60 LED that is the limit of one channel of a lighting node pro or commande
  4. So then would it be OK to tune it down low and not have to worry about it?
  5. There is no splitter. The freezer routs the fan wires down the inside of hose's braided mesh cover and runs everything into one 4 pin cable.
  6. I have the arctic liquid freezer 2 240 and both its fans, well 3 counting the little one, and the pump, are all run off of 1 4 pin header. I've heard you want your pump to be running at 100%. Is that right? And if so does lowering the fans effect pump speed? Asking because I have numerous fans and that's let me tune them all down to low RPM making them silent. But I've only kinda messed with the CPU header's fan curve because I don't what what that does to the pump. So how exactly does CPU headers work?
  7. Got tired of waiting for a 3080 to come in stock and only had a GTX 660, so I picked up an EVGA 1070 SC on ebay for cheap. The only thing I've ever changed before was to set power management mode to prefer maximum performance and texture filtering quality to high performance. What should I set the rest of the control panel settings to?
  8. Thank you sir. That's perfect. Nice and flat and easy to stack while still making it easy to rout the LED cable through. https://www.amazon.com/Accretion-Adhesive-Backed-Wheel-Weights/dp/B07RR13KDJ/ref=sr_1_2_sspa?dchild=1&keywords=stick+on+weights&qid=1608533964&sr=8-2-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUEzVVpVTjVXNDhLUEM2JmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwMDAwNzUxMlpEVkpLV0Y1M1o5WCZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwNTk0MjczWjZBQUxBTkZJNDVSJndpZGdldE5hbWU9c3BfYXRmJmFjdGlvbj1jbGlja1JlZGlyZWN0JmRvTm90TG9nQ2xpY2s9dHJ1ZQ==
  9. I like Corsair's LT100 RGB towers. lol But I'd slap myself silly if I paid 200 bucks for them. So I'm making 2. Already got the channel and frosted lens for the 60 LED each for the towers. 60 because they're going to be controlled by ICUE and that's the limit you can program LED when the RGB product is set to LED strips in ICUE. They're going to be roughly 20-24 inches tall. I've made 2 4 inch square by 1.5 inch tall boxes out of some acrylic I had extra from making a PSU shroud. So the boxes are the tower base. I've already planned out how to mount the channel and lens to the box. What I can'
  10. It works perfectly. The only drawback is mounting. Unlike the other switch which has cables that easily unplug, this one is attached. And I can't for the life of me get the 3 pins out of the 24pin header so I can feed the wires through the hole. So I had to cut a notch into the end of the desktop to get the switche's wires in the hole I drilled for it. Oh well I've been meaning to resurface my desk anyways. A bit of wood putty, a new top with some particle board I already have and then a neat vinyl wrapping that looks like carbon fiber I'm getting off Amazon, and it'll be better than new.
  11. Since that would require also buying things like the connections. Would this work instead for what I'm trying to do? https://www.amazon.com/CRJ-24-Pin-Switch-Jumper-Sleeved/dp/B01MSY4966/ Currently I'm just jumping the 24pin with a paperclip on the 4th and 5th pin to get it to power up.
  12. I was hoping I could just reorder the pins somehow. Sorry lol I don't even know what a relay is. This is all new to me but I'm trying to learn. The closest I've come is making RGB cables and it's hard to screw up connecting simple 3 wire, power, data, and ground cables with nothing else in the mix. I'm not understanding your instructions. How is switching the 12 and 5 around doing anything? They're double sided Y cables. Wouldn't switching them just put them back to doing the same thing they were? How does the grounds work? 2 grounds means 1 ground per power voltage? IE 1 for 5 and 1
  13. Running an old PSU mounted under my desk to power some LED behind my monitor and TV, and some desk fans in the summer. Using 2 Lighting node pros and an Anidees fan hub. All three are sata powered. But rather than having to reach down under my desk to power off the PSU every time I want to shut them off, I wanted to run a switch to my desktop next to the keyboard to do the job. So I bought this https://www.performance-pcs.com/diy/switches/switch-accessories/4-pin-molex-power-adapter-cable-w-remote-on-off-toggle-switch-36-sleeved-gc36ps44.html and this to run to the 3 items. https://www.amazo
  14. My bad, sorry. It wasn't my intention to post here originally. I just wanted to get it posted again in case I couldn't find it on reddit. I don't know how removed posts works over there and wasn't sure how long I'd have access. Didn't want to write all that again.
  15. I've never owned a GPU with an AIO and I've only ever seen after market kits for other types of cards. How is the Aorus radiator fans and pump powered? Do they need to go to a pump header like a CPU AIO? Or is it run off the cards PCI-E power? All my pump and fan headers are occupied. So the answer to the above question will help me pick which 3080 I end up with.
  16. Yes but the Kailh keycaps are double shot and are backlit capable. None of the aftermarket logitech keycaps like on ebay are see through for the secondary symbols. Even if I could move the symbol, light still wouldn't make it through. They're just printed on.
  17. The lack of backlit secondary key symbols always bothered me and quite a few other people. Especially considering that they're the current flagship keyboards and for 200 and 250 bucks they most certainly should have been lit like so many other Logitech keyboards are. It was almost a deal breaker for me in buying my G-815 since I'm a night owl. lol You'd think a giant 43 inch Acer CG7 monitor all of 2 feet in front of it would be enough to light the secondary symbols. But it only does if I put the keyboards legs in and lay it fully flat. I hate typing like that. Credit to the reddito
  18. Yeah that's what they're saying over at tomshardware. It works when I click it. If reddit deletes your post can you still reach it? I don't post on reddit much. Screw it I'll just copy and paste it here.
  19. Not sure if this should go here or in mods but anyways, I came across this mod a couple months back and wanted to give it a shot. I'm so glad I did. I couldn't be happier with the results.
  20. I don't have anything else that uses molex to test with so what would be the point? The closest I could do was to test just the fan hub without the 2 lighting node pros plugged in, which I did. I know the switch works. It cuts most of the power. Enough to shut off the LEDs and make the fans almost stop. In fact with the switch set to off it slows them to the point where I can stop the fans with my finger and they won't start spinning again until they get bumped or moved. So the switch is letting power trickle by somehow.
  21. No. None of the 5 are. I couldn't if I wanted to. If you mean motherboard fan header anyways. They're 5 pin Chinese fans that run the fan and RGB through the same cable. You have to use their fan hub that then has a PWM cable to run from the hub to a motherboard fan header for the PWM signal. As well as another cable that runs from the hub to a motherboard ARGB header if you want to control the RGB through the MOBO software. The PWM didn't work on my motherboard and many other people's motherboards as well according to reviews and Anidees themselves. That's why I yanked them to begin with. No
  22. Right? Hence my confusion and why I want to know how the mechanics of the switch works. There is nothing else though. The switch is the last link of the power chain to the PSU. It's the ONLY link to power I should say.
