U64 - RGB LED - Keyboard Mount Set - S/N Stickers

La strip LED RGB (APA102C) e’ una features che e’ stata aggiunta a partire dalla versione del firmware V1.0D, questa versione del firmware e’ prossima al rilascio.

Nelle foto si possono vedere due modelli diversi di KIT per il fissaggio tastiera e accessori, nNelle prime 7 foto (case trasparente) ho utilizzato il KIT venduto da PixelWizard.eu e nelle seguenti 10 foto (case stile SX-64) ho utilizzato il kit venduto da corei64.com

Ambedue i KIT fanno il loro lavoro e si integrano perfettamente con il case.

Solo una nota, ma e’ stato un mio errore, non ho letto bene la descrizione scritta sul sito, il kit venduto da corei64.com non e’ compatibile con la motherboard U64 v1.0 perche’ c’e’ l’adattatore tastiera, ho risolto abbastanza facilmnete tagliando un pezzo di plastica del supporto tastiera lato DX.

I due adesivi ULTIMATE 64 personalizzati con il proprio S/N e il Case C64C stile SX-64 sono in vendita sul sito PixelWizard.eu.

Il case C64C trasparente non e’ piu’ disponibile e proviene da un vecchia campagna su Kickstarter.
