I’m exploring the possibility to integrate a hidden RGB LED strip behind a front case cover. Complete with accent sprockets to go with the ASROCK Taichi X399 motherboard.
Started with creating a 40mm wide (half of the Red backside bracket) angled piece in 3 mm acrylic.
I plan to use the existing mounting holes of the be quiet! Dark Base Pro 900. Drilled 2 holes with the Dremel drill press in the right location.
Tapped the holes…
Added a third hole for the tempered glass mounting screw and fastened the bracket to the case. Really snug fit and feels sturdy.
Created a quick template in Illustrator, printed and fastened with masking tape.
The Dremel Moto-Saw did the job. One large sprocket to be divided into angled pieces.
Had to create one more large sprocket to have enough pieces for my mod. Due to the rivets in the corners of the case, I had to add a small indent to the large main piece.
Something like this is the plan. Testing mounting positions and the overall look. Would be very interesting to hear what you all think about this solution. Got any suggestion?
The plan is to paint all the pieces black (or dark grey) as the Shroud and paint the edges the same red as the accents. Addressable RGB Led strip goes behind the large piece between the front angle and the radiator.
Got an opinion? Please share…
