I figured I should share as I design this version.  :D

The RGBW strip I bought is 12mm "tall"  yikes.   so I folded the edges and got it down to 7mm  ;)   I will touch up the solder joints before I install them to make sure.

mine is also 12mm. but it fits in the case fine. I have also added 3mm to the bottom half of the case to minimise hot spots. and this seems to reduce hotspots. I have also used 3 per corner, but i might change that to 1 per corner as 3 is a little overkill

cool,  I'm going for less than 10mm total height with my variant design.  we will see how it works.    I'm very torn right now.  I am very close to getting PCB's made to get the strip height down to 6mm..   
There is not enough demand to have a lot of boards made.
