This mod is all about the lighting so check out this 30 second gif to see them in action: https://imgur.com/YxVzBaV
This is my second 3D printed case I designed and I wanted to try a more traditional shape for my case by having it in a rectangular design. I haven't got into RGB setups before so I wanted to try my own take on a RGB setup. I hit the ground running and went for it with this mod and love how it came out. I'm using ASUS Aura Sync to handle all the component side of the RGB. I have 440 LEDs inside the case, which allows each square to light up individually. The wiring for the LEDs took about 20 hours to do. You can see an in progress shot of the wiring with the LED strips in the photo gallery. Its programmed by an Arduino that is connected to the PC and is able to be programmed on the fly to display other lighting patterns. This build took about 5 weeks of printing on my printer (CR-10) and about 9 rolls of plastic.
I designed the model on Tinkercad. I've made one other case in this style which was a Metroid. It was featured and can be seen here! https://pcpartpicker.com/b/LpV6Mp
I made a video of the cases light patterns being run here: https://youtu.be/uxdkyVeb_QQ (disregard the sounds great audio from me ha, didn't realise until it was in there until it was uploaded).
I'd like to thank ASUS Republic of Gamers, Team Force, and Raidmax for assisting equipment on this mod. Very great people to work with and patient! This pc is a beast and has been handling games exceptionally well without issue! I have it setup now that the lighting will glow red as the components heat up when I'm gaming. Has a pretty cool effect and can easily see how things are running at a glance.
Cool info: - 440 Leds powered with its own power supply. Took about 20 hours to do all the wiring and soldering. - 600 hours of printing time (including errors and reprinting of failed sections)
This has been an awesome motherboard. Its overclocking great and with the ASUS Aura Sync its really going well with the case mod.
I have the white versions and they go great with my mod. Syncs up with ASUS Aura and match with case great. Performance wise they have been handling everything I throw at it.
I wasn't aware SSD's had RGB until I started this mod and I'm not sure I'll go back after seeing this in action. Goes great with it synced up to the other pc parts.
Absoulutely crushing all the games I'm throwing at it! The Strix line has always been about gaming and this is no different. The lighting on it syncs up great with the rest of the mods.
These fans are quiet and put out great colors that are matching up with the mod awesomely (is that a word?). Really satisfied with them and the white look on them is very nice and a good contrast to most other fans in the market.
