    Thanks for the reminder.. (but I have done this many many times) My trick is to put colored shrink tubing on the terminals

    I am figuring about the front of the case connections right now (fan controllers and iMON Ultra)

    Ok I am waiting on the pins to show up (prob tomorrow or tues) so I thought I would look at the front.
    [​IMG]

    I am thinking of making a CF panel for the center part, painting the Black part Candy apple red.

    I will eliminate all the holes (not needed) And really just need a power button and a control for the CPU fan (1A:eek:)

    And since the handle is plastic I was thinking of making a CF alum one in its place

    hi Mark!
    pro work on those pins ! pro color code!:respect:

    Also, nice ideas, especially the CF alum handle.:cool:

    question... are u doing a throttling controller or a switch?
    I was thinking of a 3 position switch 7.5volt - 9.5 volt - 12volt .You can use a zener diode (select one for the desired voltage drop). would be sweet!

    Maybe one day Mark can design an off the shelf case worth buying. Think Mountain mods, but with his unique touch of magic. Don't know who'd make it, but it would be a godsend.

    count me in to buy one when and if that ever happens!

    however, I think it would be best to see an MKmods mod kit, on the shelves... just an idea!

    I was thinking of that, there isant any need for unlimited speeds so maybe a 7V and 12V switch (high/low speed) with a dual color LED for each speed.

    The design is such that only the CPU has a fan that needs to be reduced. The fan below can be a silent one as the laptop Hdds and DVD make practically no heat.

    The 140mm fan in the PS will be controlled by the PS itself. (even on full speed its pretty quiet, not to mention it is buried inside the comp (further reducing its noise level)

    For the handle I was thinking of using heim joints and a CF rod in the center. (definitely look cool)

    LOL, I was working with a few companies but the silly Non Disclosure forms/attorneys sucked. Add to that their slowness to react and failure to see the future (I refuse to make cases that suck) it just took all the fun out of it...

    I have been designing a case for mfgr. it totally kicks every other cases ass so bad the other Case Mfgrs. will be embarrassed. My family keeps bugging me to shut the hell up and stop blabbing...lol...

    Just know the case is in the works and "You" my loyal minions will be the guinea pigs...:respect:

    Thanks Brian...

    My friend Brian dropped by today, I have been building/fixing comps for him from the beginning. He said he had a present for me and I figured it was more silly stuff from his closet (like 24V fans and old 512mb Hdds)
    Than he brought me this....
    [​IMG]
    Its from 0 to 15V and up to 35A, Looks like its gonna be a lot easier to test fans and stuff...

    Thanks again Brian:respect:

    Thanks guys... I got the Pins (finally) 200 of them should keep me busy...
    [​IMG]

    I have changed a couple things...I ordered the heim joints yesterday for the handle but kept looking at the face and thought why not make a whole new one (Instead of using the plastic Qpack one) so I am figuring how to do it...

    I also ordered one of these to replace the iMon
    http://www.pyleaudio.com/itemdetail.asp?brand=&cat1=Mobile Video And Navigation&cat2=&model=PLVHR75
    (they were $62 online)

    I got the idea while looking at stuartpb's Qube mod
