The Luminous Panel was first introduced in 2008, when it was featured in a murderbox build for a Customer in Frankfurt, Germany. The Luminous Panel was one of two unique innovations showcased in "Daniel's 008 Build", and one that has gone on to become an increasingly sought-after showcase feature among Enthusiasts of the most desirable custom PCs.
The concept for the Luminous Panel involves light uniformly emanating from the panel's top surface, illuminating components of the upper section, and creating dramatic visual contrast against the dark interior of the case.
The Luminous Panel is designed to fit perfectly into the frame of the MKII's Structural Midplate, and plug into a power header located on PCB2.
The Luminous Panel – White is offered in 3 versions:
• The Default version has no hole and requires one to be drilled in order to pass a tube between the lower and upper sections – unless the DDC/D5 Pump Mount Sled is used.
• The 12mm pre-drilled hole version comes with a 12mm pre-drilled hole and is suited for a rigid tubing configuration.
• The 18mm pre-drilled hole version comes with an 18mm pre-drilled hole and is suited for a flexible tubing configuration. The 18mm pre-drilled hole requires the Barrow 15mm Acrylic Threaded Insert (MDY-YKLSNYC-15).
