Little Update
Well I didnt' get much done last night... My hubby made a home made curry with his new curry set (new knives, curry spice set, curry pot etc for his xmas) and it was delicious! Had a nice long soak in the bath to relieve some aching muscles from pushing myself perhaps too hard at the pool and then a quick tinker around with my new goodies before going to bed.

I think it's safe to say those stock tops need to go! A nice shiny Koolance 452x2 should do the trick!

Out with the old!

Quick change of the acrylic / plugs

Add the pumps and serial connecter!

And we're done! (Don't worry, I am aware the case is silver and the front are black)

Still debating whether or not to swap the 2x 24v pump adapters for the bay version (so it matches with the pump/res) but we'll see... Means more things to do...

Oh! And for those non-belivers out there...

Yes it's currently the opposite but just to demonstrate they fit (tight squeeze!)


Until next time...

I got nothing done on my build this weekend (shocking I know) but we had to get the Xmas stuff away, clear out the junk from the guest bedroom, go to the dump with it all, organise the office (was meant to re tweak the home network and get the juniper installed but that didn't happen either!), get the new curtain rail and curtains up (which was a disaster since the wall started crumbling) and other stuff which I can't remember... Think it was something over at the parents-in-law to be house...

*sigh* but hopefully I'll find time to do stuff after work this week providing the OT isn't mental...

So after a beautiful home made curry by my fiance (cheers hunny bun!) I decided it was time to mod!

63f052172882205.jpg

MMM lamb rogan josh!



Well... I wanted to have some with this update but unfortunately there were some... er... pops, bangs, fizzles and melting!

It was meant to be a video comparing a Kaze 3000rpm to a Denki (200CFM+ model). Unfortunately 4x Kazes (which is lower amps than my Delta) managed to fry a cable...


No Fans / fingers were lost in the making of these photos / videos!
[EDIT] It turns out my chain of 4x Kazes may be dead but I'm covinced now they were dead before the testing...

c592e6172870528.jpg

Where the wires melted so bad that the 2x twisted wires welded themselves to each other :down:

a8cec3172870547.jpg

And after much pulling I finally seperated the fan header from the connector to find some nice burns...

b459ad172870578.jpg

Mmmm bubbled melted plastic...



Er yeah so no way was I going to be putting my 3 Amp denki on one of these wires! :rofl:

So instead I screwed my kazes to the rads for some videos.

ad1312172870467.jpg

Many empty boxes...

bf4a4a172870478.jpg

Some quad love...

And time for a quick test run! It's unfortunately not all 22x fans running (especially since I found I'm 3x fans short!) since I didn't have enough adapters!!!

People who mod PC's for silent builds press MUTE now!!!

Eh! ohno-smiley02.gif Mental!

Those wires will handle 3A easily. Are you sure that's what you were putting through them? I would check for shorts and get the ammeter out before running them again.

Again, it's been a busy weekend with more important jobs to do / people to see. But I've been shopping this weekend and picked up some new tools, trial fitted my radiators and started work on the side panels!


Oooo-i-oooh! What tools did you buy Bex?


Let me show you (although nothing too fancy)

fba510172870789.jpg
... Some drill bits

141aa8172870795.jpg
... Some putty epoxy (to fill some holes)

And for only £1 (~$1.50 USD)

e91d17172870687.jpg
... a scraper!


What on earth do you need a scraper for Bex?


To clean the side panels! The noise dampening foam was damaged when I bought the case and since I'm running 3000RPM Kazes, I have no need for it really... that and it gives me more room to run cables / squeeze in equipment into the basemen (more side clearance).

I've heard nightmares about trying to get this stuff off... How people have tried razor blades and alcohol based substances and what not and that it's so difficult to shift... so how will a £1 scraper do?

323273172870764.jpg
(taking to arms with the scraper - safety goggles in case of bits getting in eyes!)

366a36172870702.jpg
Well after a few initial scrapes it doesn't appear to be too bad at this...

50b03f172870714.jpg
... and appears to be able to take off the gunky stuff holding it on!

d833cb172870726.jpg
With a little bit of time I seem to have earned some technique and able to strip quite a lot off at time! biggrin.gif

407f96172870758.jpg
(Me working hard - nearly done with the first panel)

Just as I'm almost done - disaster strikes!

a658a3172870785.jpg
My trusty £1 blade has broken trying to get the difficult stuff off... frown.gif

But it's ok, the blade has done well. Almost finished the whole panel!

c6d3bc172870773.jpg
Just got to get the last of the sticky stuff off / wipe it down ready for cuts and primer!


So what are you gonna do now Bex?


First I'm going to go and do my nails! tongue.gif But I think I'll buy another 2x of those blades I think (£2 isn't going to break the bank!) and maybe see if I can get something to help strip the sticky stuff off or at least losen it or clean the last of it residue off...

Since I couldn't do any more of the case panels, I thought I'd have a go with the barbs and making sure I had all the required pieces to put the the radiator (engine) in the bottom of the case. After playing around with multiple combos I decided on this...

fa9c90172870605.jpg
Quick view from the right...

b64a7c172870640.jpg
Quick view from the left...

0839af172870654.jpg
Quick view from the top... (make sure the spacers for the drain pipe don't hold the bottom radiators too little/far apart)

11cf35172870678.jpg
God bless BP Crystal links!

The drain in the bottom will be another 90 degree rotary that actually goes on the bottom of the case. This will the drain is at the lowest point should I need to drain the system wink.gif

So until next time, I'll leave you with another image from the side of the engine!

Yeah the adapters for a single Delta work but 4x Kaze 3000RPM = 4x0.6A each and whether it was the ampage or wattage that melted it I don't really know but those fans did work in my other case fine...

The power dissipated as heat in the cable is directly proportional to the square of the current flowing through it. In other words, if you double the current flowing through the cable, you will quadruple the power dissipated as heat in the cable.

There is no way only 2.4A was flowing through that to make it melt, unless your ambient temperature is like the sun smile.gif

It already feels like it'll break my back lifting the rads in a stack when they're empty...
