New items received in the mail including:
- Robertts25 Molex pin extractor
- Phobya 480 RAD mount
- Both phobya cables
- Rheostatic controller for 480 fans.
Over the weekend I began working with the practice sleeving on an older power supply. I tried the tape method and it's not going as great as I was hoping. There is a tool out there by Robertts25 at pccablesleeving.com called the Anti Kink Tool
I will be ordering as it looks to really speed up/simplify the sleeving process. I'll be ordering that tomorrow and will be sure to do a review on it.
The 480 Radiator has been taped down on the inside and I will be going to the hardware store for black matte paint and sandpaper to give it a nice finish. I plan to work through the painting and begin taking a dremel to the case over the 3 day weekend.
I received the package I ordered from aquatuning.us with the rad mount and cables yesterday. I had to check in on my sponsor discounted order of the radiator, reservoir and some other fittings and Pascal informed me they haven't shipped it yet. So I'm probably looking at another week or two before getting it in.
For the side-mount rad cage, dwood has completed the framework and we are working on the cover/shroud now for it. One curve ball is that Phobya supplies a single fan plate for the 200/220mm fans. While this isn't ideal for those who want to do a push/pull configuration (which one would think, why not maximize the cooling potential even with low flow fans) we are working on a remedy to correct this and make it available. More to come!
I've got a need to design a solution for some backlighting of a cutout. Solutions include either an EL panel
cut to shape, or an acrylic block highlighted with LED's similar to this
. Still undecided as of yet.
Power supply: Still need to mod power supply. Think Dremel and LED.
Case side: To dremel a big window and remove the fan or not.
Need some ideas.
