After a good long couple of months, we have finally finished our LAN Box Project! Yup, we could have done this earlier and faster, but it is nice to take it slow and careful. Here are a few pics of our end product.
The above pictures are the high, off and low speed settings on the Bay Bus. The LEDs are surprisingly bright. The pictures don't really do it justice, you have to see it for yourself in person.
Here's a side shot of the Liquid Neon. I personally think it's a lot brighter than most regular tubes and with the wave that goes through it, it sure is different.
And finally, what we have been working on through these three parts. Our completed LAN Box made with a sweet Lian Li All Aluminum Case:
There's our rig's new home, complete with Window Kit, Stainless Steel Handles, Laser Cut Grills, 3 Intake and Exhaust Fans, Liquid Neon Tube and a 4 Terminal Bay Bus. It is one serious machine to bring to your favorite LAN party!
Here are some temperatures coming out of this box.

Hey, our case is damn tight! Those temps are not getting too high, close to ambient so it means that those fans are doing something. All fans were run at full speed, none of that quiet stuff for us! We're going to go and bring this beauty over to our next get together, make sure you swing by!
Hope you enjoyed our three part guide in making this lightweight LAN Box. If you got yourself a Lian Li and you've been following us, give us a holler and tell us about your own project. We'd love to hear from you.
We would also like to thank Carl and BJ from PCMods.com for providing us with all the products. This project would have gone no where fast without their help. Thanks once again!
