    Amazing, isn't it. We have talented buggers like you - and yet you will never see creative ideas like this in a PC store.

    Way to go. :thumbup:

    Very nice execution on this.

    Corsair didn't release the red led kit for the ram yet? I know they said they were suppose to.

    Not to my knowledge, but i do have a 4mm red acrylic sheet and a newly finished diy cnc router :D But i also have more planned for the rams than just the red light bar. Just had to finish the case for the mod competition :)

    Why do you not design cases for a living? You could make a godlike company with all the crummy cases around.

    Absolutely amazing though man... that looks nothing like the testbench v1 anymore. I love it, can I get one?? :):):)

    Thanks for all who voted for me in the Cooler Master mod competition! Got myself a 3rd prize :)

    After a very busy Christmas I've made a prototype of the ram, did not go well at all but at least i've gotten started.

    This is the design. It's basically the same design as the Dominator platinum ram but with a sandwich construction consisting of two aluminum sides with acrylic in the middle.

    The aluminum part
    [​IMG]

    One of the aluminum parts pressed together with the acrylic. Got decent tolerances on the parts so i just pressed them together with a vice, no glue needed :)
    [​IMG]

    Made a red light bar so the ram would match the case better. Still want a white acrylic top with it only being red when its on :)
    [​IMG]

    Installed without a lightbar
    [​IMG]

    It looks the same with a lightbar. Think there is not enough light for the light to reflect all the way to the middle of the ram. I will experiment a bit more but if i can't figure it out i will leave it with just a red lightbar

    With the red lightbar and the original part it looks like this. It's not too bad but a bit of the white light shines through due to the fact that the leds are further apart than the width of the lightbar. The red bar is the same width as the original one. Also gonna polish the entry surface of the acrylig to let as much light through as possible

    Hey guys!
    Back now, been very busy with work and a lot of other stuff.

    Have been trying my best to get the ram working (spent well over 50hrs) but after corsairs "release" on monday i decided to shelf my idea.

    I tried making grooves and so on in the acrylic and i got the light to spread decently as far as the new corsair kits are covered. Maybe they had the same problem :D Anyways, I will move on to some other mods i want to try out instead. Updates to come as soon as i make some progress :)

    And a massive thanks to Mr Hagedoorn and guru3D for such nice prizes! The vector ssd arrived safely to Finland!

    Such an honor to win rig of the year!

    Stay tuned for more updates
