  2. HAF Pipe 480 (Spectrum Edition) This build is a collaboration between Richard Prins from Designs By Richard (myself) and Yorick Smilda (AKA ProAce), for the last 8 months we worked on an LED controller that could do something not possible with other controllers, control addressable LED strips and CoolForce LED fittings together to create a new kind of light show. After a couple tests and revisions we have a final one made for a project, initially it would have been a build with another manufacturer but due to unavailability we decided to not wait any longer and do a casemod with the controller, we are planning to do more casemods with this controller and we are dubbing the line-up “Project Spectrum” after the initial Project name and builds in the line-up will be known for the “(Spectrum Edition)” Yorick and myself have been have been planning this for about a month, to get this build started Yorick came over to my house for a couple days to work on the project, help out with the LED work, do some extra coding and much more, together we got pretty far and this first post will show some of the things we did on the build. Specifications: Hardware CPU: Intel 5820K Motherboard: ASUS Rampage V Extreme (X99) RAM: Klevv DDR4 Cras White LED 4x4GB (16GB) GPU's: ASUS GTX 780 DCII (x2) PSU: Cooler Master V1200 SSD's: Klevv Urbane U610 480GB (x1) and Samsung 850 Series EVO 500GB (x2 Raid 0) HDD: Western Digital Velociraptor 1TB Case: Cooler Master HAF X (modded to fit a 480mm radiator and a full lenth PSU cover) Watercooling EKWB CSQ Acrylic CPU Block (Polished) EKWB CSQ GTX 780 Block (x2 Polished) EKWB D5 Pump Block and D5 pump Nanoxia CoolForce (16mm) Fittings including LED fittings. Nanoxia CoolForce 16mm tubing Nanoxia CoolForce White Pastel Bitspower Valve fitting Hardware Labs Black Ice SR1 480mm Aquatube Reservoir Others Corsair SP 120mm (x4) BitFenix 230mm Pro fan Swiftech PWN 8 channel fan hub Nanoxia CoolForce White individually sleeved cables Custom PSU shroud Several meters of addressable LED strip. Custom designed and programmed LED controller For this new build I took to the attic to pull my old Cooler Master HAF X case out of storage after I had done 2 builds with this case before and I had been using other cases for my workstation, this case has been modified to hold a 480mm radiator in the top which I am using again. Big thanks to the sponsors for this project. Klevv sent us their CRAS RAM for a project that ended up being canceled and told me to use it in the next build we would do so here it is, sweet white LED glory to fit in with the RGB lighting (better than red lights of course) Nanoxia CoolForce has been my trusty supplier for water cooling tubing and fittings, these are the LED fittings we will be using I'll be using the V1200 which Cooler Master sponsored for a different project, due to the delay that project is going through I told them I would use it in this build. In the 2015 update build I did with it I had a PSU cover made with mounting points for the pump, HDD and an SSD, on the side it shows my old logo and the casemod name, before it had red acrylic and red LED lighting behind it so we tore it out and replaced it with clear acrylic which has been rough sanded on one side in a single direction (brushed), we then added aluminium tape which gives it a unique look, almost as if it's brushed aluminium, when the lighting is off and when it is on it reflects any light to make sure everything lights up nice and bright. *We made sure there was no possibility for the tape to come in contact with wiring or any other chance of shorting out the LED work. A quick test using the rainbow mode to make sure the LED’s all function as they should and it looks amazing, we'll definitly use this mode in the final build. 20170102_195435.mp420170102_195435.mp4 (50MB video, video is also on my Facebook page) The last time I used this case I noticed the front fan kept hitting the metal it was mounted on so a quick trim solved that. In the build we will be lighting up several blocks including the GPU blocks, these are two ASUS GTX 780 DCII GPU’s with EKWB CSQ blocks which I sanded and polished to a clear finish together and black backplates, I still had these in my collection and they would fit right in the build. This is what they looked like in my 2015 update build. And this is what they looked like with a little test for this build after we added the LED strips and hooked up the controller. We made a gif! (great to see that format is supported on this forum) GPU Project Spectrum (HAF Pipe 480).mp4 (30MB file download, video is also on my Facebook page) We hooked up all the LED strips including the ones in the case and after those 3 days it was time for Yorick to head home after all the work we had done, sadly when I put power on the controller later that day something went wrong and the LED strips (all but the PSU cover strips) got fried, we think it might have been a surge through the controller so Yorick worked on a re-design but until then we can not show the whole system lit up. There we are after 3 days of hard work in the attic where I work on systems, the table is a mess but it's worth it, we got a lot done but still a lot to do. The day after Yorick went home I started on to get back to work on the layout for the water cooling loop, a lot of puzzling was done to see what the cleanest look would be. First test to see if parallel would be the best way to do this loop (spoiler: I went with serial even though this looked pretty nice) Mounting the CPU block and this time I decided not to go with Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut like the last two times but to once again use Liquid Metal and go with Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut, we are a couple weeks further and temps are looking mighty fine, thanks to Thermal Grizzly for their support Some piping done after I decided on the layout for the tubing. After some serious bending of which the photo's seem to have disappeared (dying camera) this was the result, I've filled up the system for testing and since I wanted to use the PC until the final controller and the new LED work is done. The GPU blocks are not the only water blocks to receive the treatment, I designed this small bracket for the EK CPU block to add some LED's to it, we are going to a place where RGB overkill does not exist! The left is a Cooler mod we are doing for Cooler Master, the right is the EK CPU block bracket, all parts are designed by me and 3D printed by Yorick. I might have missed something, it's late but I will add/change anything if I notice it. The next update shouldn't take long, we received the PCB for the final version of the controller and only have to wait for a few items to be shipped before I can take it apart again and we can install everything as planned. PS: My apologies for the terrible photo's (some at least), my DSLR was dying at the time and sadly some photo's are missing, I now have a brand new one so the update photo's will all be made with that.
  3. In september i have build my own pc with a white coolermaster case and until now i've used a white keyboard that had been lingering around in my house. Now it is time to replace it but i can't find a decent white gaming keyboard anywhere. Since I'm also living in Belgium it needs to be a keyboard with AZERTY layout. It would also be nice if it had some led lights to have the "gamer" feel to it. I'm very sad that I can't find one at all :/
  4. The HDD activity LED on my front panel is not working. All other buttons and LEDs are working. Has anyone else had this problem? Any suggestions or do I need to replace the front panel? Thanks for any suggestions.
  5. Cm Octane Mouse Light problem

    So basically i turned on my pc today and noticed that only my left click light is working... Checked the cable, usb port, and drivers.. nothing seems to work.. What happens is that right light doesn't work at all, then it randomly turns on for few seconds, then starts to flickering and turns off again, and that just keeps repeating. I have mouse and keyboard for about 8months [images-on/flickering/off]
  6. USB Led doesn't light on

    Hello :) This is my problem with the case Cooler Master Maker 5 : USB Led does not work... no light on PS : sorry for my bad english (i'm french) Solved by the Cooler Master Support : Do you have connect also the Molex cable from the fan/LED control PCB? The Molex provides power to the fan controller and the LEDs on the top IO panel. Check also this link for a short explanation and check if everything is connected properly: http://coolermaster.force.com/pkb/articles/en_US/FAQ/Install-MasterCase-Maker-5-LED-Fan-Controller-PCB/?q=mastercase+maker&l=en_US&fs=Search&pn=1 >>>> Thanks a lot to the Cooler Master Support : it works ! I forgot to tonnect the Peripherial Cable connection to a 4pin Molex Connection from my power supply. I would like to wish you and your family a very happy new year. Best regards, Eric E.
  7. Hi everyone, I'm quite new to the whole customization thing, so sorry if this is a very basic question. Is it possible to change the default led colors on the MasterCase Maker 5? I really don't like the red color... Thanks in advance!
  8. I've just completed a new build with a Maker 5 case and am having a few issues with the front panel. I also have a question about fan control. The only LEDs that are lit are power and fan (I assume the "gear" shaped LED on the left end is power). The HDD activity LED jumper is plugged into the MB, but the LED does not light during activity. None of the USB port LEDs are lit, although the ports are working. What can you suggest as a possible problem with the LEDs? I am using the LED/fan control unit that came with the Maker 5. It works, but I'm not sure how this interacts with the L/H fan speed button on the front panel. Is there any doc on this LED/fan control unit? This is a great case. Id just like to get these few issues sorted out. Thanks for any assistance,
  9. Hi guys, I've just bought a Quick Fire XTi keybord and I've updated the Firmware. When I try to save a LED profile I can't set the light for the ESC button. The button's LED works, because it works with any other LED features, but not in the LED profile :/
  10. Hello everyone, I noticed that when using the "Default Profile" the led colors of the mouse change with each DPI setting change (Off, Red, Green, Blue). However when setting up my own custom profiles, I cannot duplicate this effect (I seem to only get 1 led color setting that applies to all DPI levels), so I was wondering if this is even possible or if I'm just using the software incorrectly. Any ideas are appreciated thank you for reading. -I'm using the Recon with the most up to date software.
  11. I am having an issue where I cannot turn off my scroll lock without turning off the LED on my keyboard. I am using excel and it is very difficult to work in with scroll lock on and the LED off. Any solutions on how to turn on the LED without turning on Scroll lock? Thanks! EDIT: It is the CMStorm Devastator Keyboard
  12. Good Day CM community, i am using my new quickfire tk(mx blue) since ca. 3 weeks. During this weeks i noticed something. The LED of my FN-button is sometimes not on and sometimes it is on. Since there is no such command in the manual, i wanted to ask if there is a hidden command to turn the fn-button on/off or is the led just broken?
  13. Problem with CM Storm Havoc

The red color is selected but the DPI Button stay OFF... The Yellow color is selected,but the DPI button stay green...
  14. Help! Please!

    So i recently bought the CM Storm Devastator combo and the mouse works fine. The keyboard has problems. I plugged it in and it worked for the first time. But now whenever i plug it into my actual gaming computer it doesnt work. I am aware of the Scroll Lock/LED on/off button and whenever i press that it does not turn on. I plug it in and the PC says installing device drivers and then it tells me it does not recognize the device and it says driver install failed. When i do plug it in it turns on for 1/2 second and turns off. (using windows 7 64 bit)
  15. cooler master V6GT blinking LED

    Hello, periodically spontaneously blinking (all colors) led on V6GT(MB- asus p7x79, CPU- i7 3820K), what could be the problem?
  16. Hello! I just purchased the HAF X and I decided to add a white LED strip to the inside of the case. I know that the votlage of the red LED on the front is 2v. And my LED strip is 12v. That obviously can't work, so I need suggestions! A friend told me I could use one of the power supply's cables with 12v and connect the strip to that cable, but I'm not really sure about that. Help would be very much appreciated.
