Thread: New cube computer

    New cube computer

    I just finished work on my new computer and wanted to get some input on it. I'm going with all UV lighting, and am going to install a 4" UV cold cathode on the right side to balance out the brightness, as the left side is bright and the right side is now dark.

    System specs:
    Mobile Barton 2400+ @ 2400 MHz
    DFI Lanparty Ultra II Mobo
    Aerocool HT-101 heatsink
    768 MB PC3200 ram
    GeForce4 Ti 4400 128 MB
    2 x 160 gb hard drives
    4 x 120 mm Antec fans
    52x burner
    Windowed DVD Drive
    Aspire 500 Watt PSU
    CubedPC.com 13” Cube case

    You can find more pictures here
    Here are some pictures:

    Thanks I was thinking about LED lights, but the UV reactive LED lights are complete pieces of crap, so I would have been froced to have colored LED's which I was afraid would wash out the sweet UV lighting on the mobo and wires.

    hey that's looking good.

    I was playing around with UV a while back, you can buy individual UV leds for lighting small UV reactive areas, although you need lots if it's going to look any good so I wouldn't bother with those lol.

    Things which react to UV have to contain phosphors. The more the better (or the brighter it glows!)

    I had similar problem with spreading the light around - and found that white paper, which contains large amounts of phosphors, gave off an intense blue errie glow in the visible spectrum. Spraying it lightly with a florescent paint and covering it with wire mesh created some interesting effects



    Plasma clouds I called it used it on the floor of my case for a while.

    Try standing the case on white paper, and view it in the dark, or line the floor with white paper, and you should get a nice blue glow from the stray UV light.

    It is an advertisement! Likely a moderator will kill the link in his post or close the thread all together. He has posted a total of 5 times in 4 months. His page shows pictures of 2 cases that happen to be the only products they sell (for way too much I must say).

    And that is with NO power supply or fans. Just the bare shell. Clear Case is about $100 for their cases.

    Come on... This one is only $85:



    And it comes with 5 LED fans. To top it all off when I searched for other clear cube cases, I found he had spammed another message board here:

    http://forums.devhardware.com/t13695/s.html

    and here:

    http://www.techspot.com/vb/showthread.php?threadid=9222

    and here:

    http://forums.extremeoverclocking.co...ex.php/t-74091

    and here:

    http://www.pimpedoutcases.net/galler....php?photo=639

    Of course on the first board he said they would be less than $160 and probably closer to $140. He posted there back in December there. It also looks like he does some work with Xoxide.com and they sell his case there for him here (for $189):

    I don't care much for spammers here, so I just thought I'd dig a bit.
