It’s not an easy task to visualize lighting effects either in your mind or in a CAD program. Best is to try it IRL. As I’m using the Enermax RGB fans I need to use their fan/led controllerbox, so started out with testing LED strips both custom and common without a result I was happy with. Turned out the box is 12v and isn’t supporting addressable LEDS. I love the fans and the brand, but this will not work for this mod.
8 fans and 2 LEd strips, but no addressable…
Last out of the common strips was a Phanteks led strip. Nice light, but not what I need.
After a placement in Sweclockers mod of the month I got a Lighting Node Pro from Corsair (thank you so much) and though I might as well give that a go (was saving it for a future mod).
Very compact, yet so powerful. Starting to go from liking to loving the more I played with it.
After som fiddeling and moving the magnetic LED strips around from Corsair I decided that I definatly with mount 2 LEDs under the case for some nice floor- and indirect lighting effect. I don’t want to interfear to much with the mattblack interior that will come, but need light inside the case to make it shine. Will prob mount a rail around and to the side of the MB to give that a nice shine. I do HATE LED spots, so they will be hidden or I will coat them in a sillicon tube to ensure they shine smooth and clean.
