Hey guys, been really busy at work this past week and haven't had much time to do any serious modding.
The weather in NYC has gotten a lot colder fairly quickly so I had to paint inside the house instead of outside.

First off the new stuff that was sent to me from Performance-PCs.com
Thanks again Hank!

IMG_3474.jpg
Lamptron FC5 V2 silver (which needs to be repainted).

IMG_3476.jpg

IMG_3478.jpg

IMG_3479.jpg


Since ill be running a 360Rad up top and I noticed the lower section for the hard drives can hold an additional 2 120mm fans I ordered some Scythe AP-15 Gentle Typhoons, and one 120mm Scythe Kama for the rear exhaust.
IMG_3508.jpg

IMG_3513.jpg
Fan controller housing and Scythe fans removed and prepped for paint.
The plastic pieces have been sanded with 400grit sandpaper.
The aluminum Lamptron bezel has been sanded with 220grit sandpaper.

IMG_3518.jpg
Kinda reminds me of sunflowers ^^ (prepped with primmer and re-sanded with 800grit).

IMG_3525.jpg
Now since I had to paint inside due to the chilly/windy conditions, I used my very own fume hood.
These retail for about $300 for the size I needed, but I created this for about $30 It served me well for the past year.

IMG_3526.jpg
Its two exhaust fans (140mm top & 120mm rear) which vents out my window via collapsible air duct.
Its made out of two layers of foam board which were glued with epoxy and tape.
I also installed a 15inch florescent lamp on top.
If you look you can also notice that I added 1.5inches on the bottom for over spray to stay in the painting area which will be sucked out via the exhaust fans.

IMG_3520.jpg
Red sunflowers biggrin.gif

IMG_3530.jpg

IMG_3532.jpg
Final product is a matte red scythe fan!
Steps were
-Sand 400grit
-Warm wash with dish washer soap
-Two coats of primer (dry for two hours)
-Sand 800grit
-Warm wash with dish washer soap
-Three coats of Red spray paint (dry for 1hour)
-Two coats of Matte Finish (dry for 24+ hours)

IMG_3536.jpg
Its a long process but the outcome is worth it.

IMG_3533.jpg
Here is the Lamptron FC5 V2 after the same process.

Close up!

Sir, from one modder to another. The time and prep it takes to use a rattle can to paint fan blades, let alone the sickle style; is enormous. +rep for taking the time to do a clean and awesome job on those fans. That is an easy mod to do, but its a huge and difficult task to make it look good on top of it.
post #15 of 72
My Cosmos S was purchased because it could mount a 360 radiator with push-pull fans without modification - I'd call that designed for water cooling.
It is a great case, but predates the move to black interiors. Cable management while good also takes more effort than newer Corsair cases.

Thanks! Matte red always looks better than gloss red IMO.

Thanks for the +Rep Lutro0, yeah the sickle fins were a PITA to prep, took a long time but the outcome is always the best going that route. Originally was going to go Matte White but the Battleship grey made the white look dull which would require me to do multiple coats & I didnt want to run the risk of bleeding.

Yeah I had the 1000 Cosmos and it was great for water.

Scythe GT fans are held on by tiny Eclips. I usually use an exacto-knife and a thin flat head to get them to separate, but I bend them back into shape when reinstalling.

The Kama Flow fan is actually just popped off (no e-Clip) since there's no opening behind the rear sticker.

Hey guys, I hope you all had an awesome weekend, It's been really hectic at work with the stock market being erratic so I haven't had a chance to really sit down and post all these photos. But from time to time after work I do little mods here and there.
Hopefully this upcoming Thanksgiving weekend will give me the much needed time to spend with family as well as mod my computer.
Oh yeah the CaseLabs M10 case is arriving tomorrow which is perfect timing, since ill use this coming weekend to start re-crimping/sleeving my AX1200 PSU.

I recently ordered an Asus x79 RIVE board which arrived on Thursday, came in a really big box from NewEgg.
IMG_3600.jpg

IMG_3604.jpg
Had to get the BF3 edition since I didnt purchase BF3 yet. It was a good sign that I should go with the BF3 edition.

IMG_3603.jpg

IMG_3663.jpg
Very impressive board, crammed with features.

IMG_3665.jpg

IMG_3667.jpg
You can see the BF3 card on the top right, they also included a BF3 lanyard.

IMG_3669.jpg

IMG_3676.jpg
Owners manual/CD/etc

IMG_3677.jpg
I doubt id use this but they included a sheet of labels for all of your SATA cables for easy identification.


IMG_3675.jpg
I went ahead and sleeved the 8SATA cables provided with the board since I won't be making my own custom SATA cables.

IMG_3679.jpg
I used 1" clamps to hold the tension on the MDPC sleeving, I also used "The Chopper" to evenly cut my heatshrink.

IMG_3681.jpg
I wanted to sleeve the 6GB SATA cables in red so I applied red electrical tape over these 4 cables to prevent the MDPC sleeve from bleeding black.

IMG_3688.jpg
Here is the outcome of my finished SATA cables.


IMG_3588.jpg
I also purchased an NZXT internal USB header board, which allows you to add multiple USB ports internally, which will help power my USB N-wireless card.

IMG_3589.jpg
The cable on the left is for power.


IMG_3607.jpg
I purchased the Creative Fatal1ty Professional Champion series card solely for the use of the front I/O panel. I sold the sound card.

IMG_3620.jpg
I wanted all of the front panels to match so I had to disassemble the I/O panel to prep for Flat Black paint.

IMG_3618.jpg

IMG_3623.jpg

IMG_3625.jpg
The finished product after the whole prep/paint/cure routine.


IMG_3655.jpg
Since ill be now using two loops instead of one, Hank over at Performance-PCs.com sent over this new Swiftech MCP35X pump, which I will use solely for the CPU/Mobo loop.

IMG_3657.jpg
Means id have to remove all my stickers for a clean look, so the "Warranty Void if Removed" had to go (:

IMG_3655.jpg
Take a look at the Swiftech label you'll notice the pump was made in HU (Hungary).

IMG_3660.jpg
Now if you were to remove that sticker you'd come across another sticker which states the pump was made in EU (European Union). ???

IMG_3661.jpg
All disassembled.


Now for a sneak peak at my lighting system.
IMG_3557.jpg
I ordered a bunch of 4PIN male fan headers for a special board which will power all my LEDs.

IMG_3580.jpg
Originally a green perforated board, but had to paint it black to match the interior parts.

IMG_3575.jpg
Done, kind of messy since it was my very first time working with soldering on a perforated board.

IMG_3585.jpg

IMG_3583.jpg
Here is my second board which is a fan power bank for my FC5 that way ill be able to power up to three fans on each channel.
1. CPU Rad
2. GPU Rad
3. Front Panel
4. Rear Panel

Now what does the Light board do?
IMG_3569.jpg
It powers my lights (please excuse the messy wiring since its just test pieces to check my soldering job).

IMG_3570.jpg
But it allows me to switch which lights go on and off (ie. exterior/interior/etc).

IMG_3571.jpg
Tada!

I'm currently working on another light board which is controlled by frequency but currently not trying to stress myself with the wiring schematic. Hopefully this board will be complete mid Dec (:

Thanks for stopping by!
