I need to redo the panhead screws Phill or just grab some nice anodized black ones online, the Plasti-Dip came out terrible , but the rest of the black-out is a big Yahoo!As long as it's the heads and not the thread that has the coating on, you should be good to go!
The big white Lamptron reset dot, and those all black SilverStone sleeved front panel cables, woohoo!
GF says that white thing is "The All Seeing Eye."
Had to connect the front panel PWR and RST LED + and - pins on the motherboard with solder drops (pic below) so the white Lamptron Vandal switch led would illuminate.
Since, as anyone who's been running their Primary OS drive in NVMe PCIe slots (instead of SATA ports) will tell you - the HDD/SSD activity led will not flash at all - ever.
So to get the white Lamptron lamp to glow, modification of the Maximus X Apex motherboard (below) was necessary.
I'm happy with the results. Go silver solder!
Batman and Max.
Two office computers. So much love.
