So, if you can't tell what this is, i can.
It's the cigarette lighter known from car consoles :P
One day i just thought that hey, car and computer use the same voltage, 12V, so why shouldn't i make a cigarette lighter to my computer?
It's pretty useful, too. I can use all kinds of stuff from travel TV to keyboard lights from it, pretty useful at LAN party's.
The first pic is a close-up of it, second is where it shows among the rest of the computer, and the third one is the wired side of the lighter, inside the computer.
Have fun building your own!

I noticed that too, but i don't need any fan controls in my case, it stays cool enough just by the processor cooler :P
Currently, i'm making another cigarette lighter on the same panel. Also, on my spare time, i try to continue my serie of car mods, but i won't reveal anything yet :)

it looks lonely there by itself on that drivebay, maybe you could turn that panel into a little control bay with lights control and fan control.. look like you've done a good job, fairly basic tho, so 3/5 still a bit more you could add in

PenPen19.07.2004 02:30
yeah.. that is smart, never thougt about it, but its true that you can connect almost everything in those :D
nice cutout too
good idea :)
