    Default Maximum Security




    I was asked if I'd be interested in modding Thermaltake's new Level 10 GT chassis. Of course I had to say yes. A case like that may be hard to mod, but I've got some crazy plans for this thing. It involves liquid cooling and LOTS of electronics.

    First off, a HUGE THANKS to the current sponsors!!

    Thermaltake hooked me up with the Level 10 GT chassis, a Toughpower Grand 1050W PSU and some liquid cooling goodness.

    Kingston hooked me up with a 96GB SSDNow V+100 96GB SSD and a 6GB DDR3-2000 HyperX H2O Kit.

    Gigabyte sent me a G1.Guerrilla motherboard.

    Microchip sent me one of their new chipKIT Max32 development boards.

    Trossen Robotics hooked me up with their RFID reader kit and a discount on their Firgelli L12 Actuator.

    Auto Air Colors sent me a few bottles of airbrush paint.

    NZXT hooked me up with a white LED light strip.

    Protostack sent 2 of their ATMega8A development kits.

    PCBoard.ca sent me one of their new individually addressable RGB LED strips.

    Thanks

    And here's those teaser vids for those who haven't seen them




    The issue I'm having now is porting everything from the Arduino (which doesn't have enough i/o for everything I need) to the chipKIT. The issue with that is the Arduino runs an AVR and the chipKIT runs a PIC, so they handle the code differently. I've been working closely with the guys who designed the board to get this sorted, and right now they're redoing the servo code (was never done originally to work with the PIC) and trying to figure out the addressable RGB LED strip issues.
