Ye olde got some very cheap LED strips installed to be part of a new and upgraded TFT tinted side window project. I just need a 17" or smaller LCD screen to make one. Those things are hard to find nowdays, seriously.

- 2xHP 23xi and some Asus 27" gaming TN cheap ripoff in the middle, racing games are ok with 5760x1080 spanned resolution though

Working beta stage of the TFT tinted side window

BenQ panel (controller board wired straight from PSU so the panel's own PSU was not needed), 2x white 30cm CCFLs, 30x white 50mA smd leds and some plexiglass :P

A second of video tells more than 25 pictures and so on... :D

There was a problem with the smaller battery but it appeared to be just the low voltage protection cutoff, got it to charge overnight.

Attached with super handy neodymium magnets.

The current is 5 mA so the battery lasts roughly 10 days straight. The bigger one lasts over a month (and has battery level indicator lights, but it's HUGE)

Got a old Sony DSR-PDX10P with XLR kit, took the kit and soldered myself a nice active microphone to use with DSLR.

Found a pinout of the active shoe mount from the internet but it was wrong so I had to figure this one out myself.

HTPC drawer in my TV stand is now updated too because the GTX560 started heating things up. Dont't worry, i'm looking for a mesh to cover the fan and rough cuts.

Ringlight prototype

- 36 12000mcd 15-degree leds, runs with 3 1,5V batteries.
- CD spindle cover

The angle of the leds is way too narrow, next time more leds and broader angle.

At this point I would like to give a big loving kudos to NEXUS for having the wires colored right but in different order!

But in the end: crappy cheap fans (the most expensive 80mm PWM model in verkkokauppa in shelf), more quiet and cooler though. The wiring is of course hidden behind the card when installed.

Oh yes, my computer case.

Made from 22 mm MDF, plexi and bolted together with M6 and M12 chromed hex bolts.

Not much to say about the insides, they're a bit out of date and the wire mess is horrible :D

Cooling with fans running 5 and 7 volts. Keeps very quiet and cool due to an "air tunnel" going in and out through most heat producing components.
