First things first: Take out the power supply and rip it apart (well, unscrew it and take the cover off)
Image
I took the fan out and made the proper connections to the wires. (I didn't know which wires were which on the fan leads, so I just tried each one out till it worked.)
Image

Next, I painted, the whole thing, so I had to take the inards out of the mounting plate. But, one problem. Can't get it out all the way. So, make sure you use newspaper to protect the components.

So, let's slap it together (once the paint dries of course) and see how it looks.

See the reflection of the mobo? I like...

Now for the fan...

Now you have a nice blue light lurking behind your comp.

NOTE: DO NOT TOUCH THE CAPACITORS, they still have enough charge in them to kill you, so either discharge them, or don't go near them. I was lucky enough to not know this and not get hurt, after I found out, I felt very lucky! So be careful!

I may end up putting a window in also... but that will be later this week or next week. I want this this up and running for Half Life 2 Friday!!!!!!!

Nice Pics,

Good MOD list here White! - I might suggest however that you edit your original message and change the subject line to something like:

PSU Mod - UV Fan and Paint Job

Or something like that to make it a little more descriptive - since their are other PSU mods you can do :)

Good MOD though!

thanks tuathal,

I had a bit of spare time, so I did this, besides, my PSU was just about the only thing in my case that didn't have a paint job. I chrome painted the whole inside of the case for more reflection of the LEDs. I may post that too... should I? Too late, I already did...
