That must be really hard work cutting that with a plastic cutter!

I purchased myself a dremel; while it's pretty good it's nowhere close to a jigsaw. Anyhow, with dremel in hand I'm currently conjuring some further mods to my already moded case. Watch this space.....wink.gif

Thats awesome.

Im trying to figure out where to put a 3rd radiator as I want to run SLI setup as well.

What pump combo are you using there?

NCIX will have more cases by the end of March, and then it should be just a few days after that until I receive my case. It should hopefully keep me focused enough to study for finals, while I run my rig in a box.

Hey everyone,

My computer has been running swimmingly since I got it in December - that is, until today. Suddenly it seems like my chassis fan has stopped working - resulting in a sudden blackout and a panicked check. Everything seems alright - except for that chassis fan!

It's a Noctua NF-A14 ULN 140mm Fan @ 600rpm

I removed it from the bottom of the case and gave it a little clean up, detached and retached the cables, and still nothing.

The power cable looks like a 3 prong (there are 3 holes) but it attaches to a cable with one 2 prongs (and one prong on the far side, but it looks like a 4 prong plug without one of the middle prongs).

Now here's the thing - the computer had been making a weird noise when it started up that usually subsided on it's own, but sometimes took a little shake.. i only nudged the computer gently, no sudden movements, and it seemed like that did the trick - the computer became silent and ran cool and quiet for hours and hours of gaming.

But today, no dice. What could be the issue here? The connection? Could the fan have just died?
What is my course of action, experts?? I want to play Day Z!

Have you tried another fan?
Could be the fan just died...

anyone tried mounting the GPU in FT03-mini 180 degrees using a riser cable? so the fans would be facing inward and can get enough air to cool the gpu? or do you guys think this is a good idea?

edit:

both my noctua psu fan and my noctua chassis fan are working now. I removed the adaptor (y-cable na rc9) that apparently makes them run quieter, and now they are spinning away, and still super quiet. (both fans were hooked up thru this).

i did, however, mount my chassis fan backwards when putting it back together. despite the pleasant breeze on my mouse hand, this is probably a bad idea in the long run. haha. gonna flip it. but yeah, seems like my problem was a faulty connection, either loose or the adaptor cable is busted somehow. regardless. works. thank you!

If you are air cooling, I think may be modding the side panel to take out hot air by adding fans blowing hot air out may be better option.

I dont see how the graphics card can sit properly in a ft03 with a riser.

Air cooling breakthrough!

I've further modded my case by cutting out an intake fan to cool the GPU. Tests revealed amazing results!

By having an intake fan blowing air directly on the GPU I cooled my GTX 780 Classified on load from 83°C to 66°C. That's a 17 degrees drop! And this is with the side panel ON, no vents. My VRM temps dropped from 75°C load to 63°C.

I run my GTX 780 Classified overclocked running 1228 (1.2GHz) on the core and 425 (6840) on the memory. My temps in Valley @ 1440p on full load are 68° on the GPU and 65°C on the VRM. That's only a 2°C rise from stock settings.

These results are even better than having the side panel off. Seriously, even with a GPU that dumps heat in the case, all you need is a 120mm intake fan to cool the GPU, problem solved. I was looking into buying an AIO to cool the GPU, not anymore. This mod solves my GPU overheating issue and is definitely recommended to everyone using air cooling. thumb.gif

Results:





I've included a picture of my build; as you can see it is possible to fit a Creative Soundcard and a 120mm fan blowing directly over the GPU. All fits great. biggrin.gif
