Update 9

HEY GUYS!

I know I haven't updated in quite a long time due to school work and all other factors... so I had to put off this mod during school time and also I need to find a job first... and I'm waiting for the hiring manager's reply for the one I applied too thumb.gif

So my friend had a spare Coolermaster 650w powersupply and I thought it's serve better than the generic penguin powersupply and it would provide better

So... this box is pretty misleading aye? To Corsair Powersupplies in one month sounds too good LOL

img1728zy.jpg

img1728zy.jpg

img1730ly.jpg

I'd better not flip around with that red switch LOL

img1731u.jpg

An extreme power, $10 for a 650w CM psu doesn't sound so bad.

img1732n.jpg

img1733u.jpg

In comparison:

img1735jy.jpg

img1736ay.jpg

The same dimensions, hmmm so the generic one wasn't abnormall small LOL

img1737lg.jpg

img1738t.jpg

The usual cables, more Molex tongue.gif

img1739p.jpg

Mounting it onto the plywood

img1741y.jpg

Fitting under the radiator:

img1743ss.jpg

Now... I can finally model the Harddrive cage cooling system with a proper PSU with a 120mm fan:D

img1744n.jpg

So as you can see, air will be pulled from the outer edge of the HDD cage through the holes and harddrives towards the powersupply, and exit through the back of the PSU.
Fresh air will be pulled from another 120mm fan which will be mounted as soon as I get more plywood to make the final 6 or more panels.

img1745mf.jpg

The plywood square at the back will be gluing onto the back of the Plywood case (which is already attached to the end of the HDD cage)

img1749ew.jpg

So that's it for now!

Can't wait for the holidays really lol, so I can start assembling and cutting the pieces.

Stay tuned for more!

Same here rolleyes.gif

I'm waiting for the hiring manager's repsonse, so I'm seriously nervous at the moment. He said in 48 hours I would get a notification but nothing in 3 days mad.gif Probably because it's a weekend and he can't be bothered to send emails.

Anyways

While I was out jogging yesterday morning I found a garage clear-out, and dug up a pair of nice noise-reduction headphones.

Dried out after cleaning:

img1754c.jpg

img1756ax.jpg

Thankfully they actually work! So much better than my ghetto broken music-headphones + rubber band biggrin.gif

img1757zm.jpg

Well that's it for now.

Have homework and all these bits due next week so I'm going to stop procrastinating now

STAY TUNED FOR MORE GUYS

AND THANKS FOR THE COMMENTS!

Update 10

So AWESOME stuff arrived yesterday, and I dug up some very useful its and bits for the case mod! Assembling will be in the holidays, 4 weeks away so I CAN'T WAIT!!!
And also, I'm one step away from getting the job at the fast food store... my parents are okay with me doing night shifts WOOHOO so I can properly fund this mod after the phone call tommorow for the employer biggrin.gifbiggrin.gif :whee:

Mesh for radiator!
img1758d.jpg

It's the square type, I'll be making a plywood frame which will fit around the edge of the wire OR I can directly attach the mesh through the holes. I like the size of the holes, plenty of space for breathing

img1759ws.jpg

The state of my room.. LOL

img1760vt.jpg

The PSU acrylic cover from my Project Darkc0d3r mod (discontinued... in my signature) which I will be integrating into my mod.

How it will be assembled in the case, pretend the case walls are there.

img1773qm.jpg

img1774ut.jpg
