Xim4 LEDs
« on: 08:16 AM - 05/07/14 »
Just curious about the design of the LEDs spots for the case, are these areas raised in anyway? Or do they sit flush with the body of Xim4?  Simply curious because I was thinking about taking some 3M Brushed Black Steel vinyl and wrapping Xim4.  Also I won't void my warranty wrapping Xim4 will I? Lol probalby a stupid question just checking

The light pipe is about flush with the enclosure. I have a few Edge enclosure prototypes that were hydrodipped and they look good. Logo detail was somewhat lost though -- which is why I didn't go forward with it. You could do something like that too, but yes, warranty will be void.

Hmmm I don't think I'll dip it because I don't want to take it apart lol... Will vinyl wrapping void the warranty? (sorry if you said yes to this because I thought you were referring to hydropping)

Vinyl is just a sticker pretty much:

If your XIM4 can be restored back to it's factory quality, then yes, it's fine.
