The Ubuntu PC Case Mod Pt.8 The handle

Hello everyone,

This week the project has progress quite a lot. To start with, I’ve finally made the case handle. This was done using a “Cobra weave” and used roughly 3 meters of purple paracord.





I’ve also soldered and sleeved the fan controller from the case. The molex power pins now just have to be glued into a plug, since i broke the clips that normally would hold them in. This will be used to control the brightness of the LEDs.


And now the big news. The UV LED strips from IceModz are now here. They appear to be a violet colour, but they also make fluorescent things glow. My strips are 45cm long, but you can buy them in Red, Blue, white, green, yellow/orange, UV or RGB, anywhere between 3cm and 500cm long and with 30 or 60 5050 spec LEDs per 100cm. They are insanely bright too.

They are adhesive backed and will come either with a 3 pin fan connector (what i got), 4 pin fan connector, or a 4 pin molex plug. The wires come pre-sleeved (in glossy black shakmods sleeve), but i will probably sleeve the wires myself so it matches the colour scheme better.
