    Project Scarlet Cardinal

    Short Intro

    Actually, this project was started, or should I say, plans were drafted for this project bout 2months back. But things had taken a change, hence this new thread.
    Old Thread

    Not much physical work was being carried out though....
    Was actually more on the planning and thinking, and experimenting.


    Actual work started bout 2 weeks back, and now, seems to have taken shape for me to start posting!

    posting when i'm hungry....dun mind



    Starters


    Current config:
    AMD P2 940BE
    DFI 790FXB M2RSH
    Team Xtreem Dark GB 1066
    PC HD4670 PCS
    Seagate 500GB .12 + WD 320GB
    Seasonic M12 430Watts
    Lian Li PC7-FW









    Will be focusing on these 4 points.

    • Addition of new Hardware
    • Sleeving
    • New Color Scheme
    • Lighting


    With an unconfirmed 5th point, Custom Panels



    Aesthetics is the goal for this project.

    Sleeving Part 2





    Sleeved Fan Controller wires
    (those I need only)



    3x Zalman F3 Sleeved




    That's bout it for sleeving i guess.
    50ft of 1/8 definitely not enough , could only sleeved what was essential. Probably will order some more if possible




    *Some of the pics dun match, but they are the same, just messed around with the contrast for some *

    Main Course--Hardware, Fan Controller






    Scythe Kaze Q





    Simple but well protected packaging.
    Come's in a foam box, with the Controller wrapped in plastic





    Simple Outlook





    As always, I removed the Female Molex for less clutter, and sleeved only the fan cables I need.





    Tested it, everything's working well.
    I believe this can be DIY, but the time and skills needed, materials too, makes this SGD$22 FC worth to get.

    Installed into my 3.5" Drive Bay




    Image is intentionally soften, as the drive bay is yet to be ready.

    Simple, but would be brighter if had redone the whole wiring
