POWER SUPPLY



Next thing I knew, my new Blue 420watt Vertiglow Power Supply (Provided by Voyeur Mods) was sitting at my doorstop, so I decided to tackle the PSU next. First thing I did was replace the standard fan grill, located on the bottom of the PSU, with an atomic fan grill to improve looks!






So now the PSU fans lit up blue and had a nice stylish fan grill, but the wires were still all over the place! So what I decided to do was contact Cable Organizer and they provided me with one of their blue PSU mod kits, which allowed me to sleeve my PSU cables quite easily. I didn't have a tool to remove the molex connectors, however I did figure out how to do so with a screw driver by pushing the small pins in one at a time, which made this process much easier!

 

 

 

 

 

RHEOBUS






Sunbeam Tech was kind enough to provide me with a nice rheobus to control my fans, that when at full power, the LED's lit up blue to perfectly match my case. I installed the rheobus into the case to see how it would look, and it turned out great! The color was a little different when compared to the rest of the aluminum case, but it matched close enough to not care.




Jacol Technologies was courteous enough to also provide a rheobus, which in my opinion looks better on the case… It's a Vantec Nexus fan controller with blue backlight. This rheobus does not allow the fans to be turned all the way off like the sunbeam one, but still does a great job, and looks really nice!

ANOTHER APPLIQUE




Well when I had first asked for an appliqué from Voyeur Mods, they sent me their standard size, which was a bit too large for my window, so they sent me a smaller one for the window, but I still had the larger one just sitting there doing nothing. I decided to put this appliqué on the other side of my case to give it some character and I also thought it would look really cool because of the way the appliqué reflects light. Turned out nice for a unexpected added touch.
