That’s got a :nana: :nana: from me. Nice mix of LW/CGS and Slightly Nasty. Do they all work well together? When will the mysterious module get finished?
Well, I don't know yet, since:
1. The case is still not completely powered
2. I don't have enough power cables
3. I need more Pomonas

Yeah, a lot of work is still necessary ;)

About that "secret" module: soon ahah

I'd be fascinated if you were to do a time-lapse build video! This just looks absolutely insane to me.

This looks so awesome!
But I can't imagine how the hell one would troubleshoot that with multiple levels of components and all the same color wiring of all things. :omg:

Wow, very nice! I must apologise as I've been slack in updating the website, I had that switch wiring diagram done to put up a while ago, I too wired it all wrong (twice :cry: hahaha!)

Is there some secret way you can buy those knobs by themselves? I can only find that you can get them if you buy them as part of a kit. Kind of an expensive way to get not enough of them...

They have them listed seperately here: https://capi-gear.com/catalog/product_i ... cts_id=222
The smallest one is $5.
They are very nice indeed!

EDIT: i didn't read the full page. They won't sell them because of copyright.

Hi, no I'm not the only one, though maybe the only fully modular 4U - but there are others like Random Source and their semi-modular 4X4 format, also of course the full panel Serge style too. I have been doing it for maybe 9-10 years now, but started very small and not really advertising so much, like I said, I'm a bit slack! :hihi:
