Thanks for the comments!

I've got a lot of things done lately, and I hop you are ready for a new update!

This update includes the mounting of the feet, hole for the fan controller, testing of the front panel, and cable holes.

First some soldering to do...







Then I had to lower the screws.


Finally ready to be mounted!








I've also milled and drilled hole for the fan controller in the outer front panel.




The result!




Holes for the cables, and testing of the hot-swap function...






The holes for the hot-swap connector looks pretty ugly on the photos, but they actually look quite good in real life.

Now, what do you think?

I like the clean look that you're getting on the front panel. I wouldn't have had the patience to make those wiring channels for the feet
I do recommend however that you cover the channels with some thin film so nothing get in or the wires are not pulled out.
Keep up the good work!

Yes, I'm planning to use some kind of filler or something to cover it ;)

WARNING: Lots of pictures (114)!

I have decided not to comment the pictures because of the large amount. Feel free to ask if you wonder about anything!


















































































































Here is a video that shows one of the features I am working on for the feet: YouTube - ‪INVERTED by ToB1 - LED Test Music‬‏

Nice use of the Arduino! I've used microcontrollers for some personal projects myself, and its nice to see them going into case mods. <subscribed and voted>
Are you leeching off the front audio or using software to tell the microcontroller to change the lights?
Is the rectangular line of LEDs going to be used as some sort of chasing lights or "visualization" for the audio?

At this point I use the 3,5mm jack from my loundcard, but I really want to do it just using USB. I just don't know how.

The LEDs on the motherboard tray are also connected to the Arduino, so they can do all the same things as the LEDs in the feet.

If someone know how to send audio signal values over USB, please tell me! :)

I believe the end of this build is near... Here are some more pictures:



































Hope you have enjoyed reading this worklog! If you wonder about something, feel free to ask!

(I will probably upload a video of the case in not too long, but it is pretty much done now)

Now I have to thank my sponsors for helping me out on this build. Thanks for all the support I have got from you! You have made this a lot easier for me!
