You may need some I beams on the case sides to keep case from imploding or exploding depending on fan orientation.
Good thing this is OCN or I would mention the overkill!

Nice work...I love the "overkill"!

Quick update from last night's progress. I couldn't make it through all of the fans last night. The stripping/crimping/taping process took longer than I thought. But I got up this morning and made it through the remainder of the fans, so now they have all been through this process. Ready for sleeving/heatshrink/connectors now! Updates later.

You spent over $1K on fans? headscratch.gif
I still don't get it.. I have a single CM fan in my case, and I still think that's noisy! How on earth can you live with 50 fans!?!
Pretty sure you'll have to bolt your case to the floor, otherwise it'll fly away tongue.gif

I've never owned a Cooler Master fan, but all I can tell you is that these Noiseblocker M12-S2's are absolutely silent when undervolted, and incredibly quiet at full speed. And when I say silent, I don't mean pretty quiet, or I can barely hear that.....I mean silent. You would have to put your ear about an inch away from the fan to even tell it was on if you didn't see it spinning. I'll do a video once there are all powered up, and I'll drop a pin or something, so you can see how silent these things are.

I'm trying to find a single thing I dislike about this build... but still can't find anything.

Please tell me that this box gets to have some living room time hooked up to the big screen and B&W surround after it's up and running.

Thanks Electrocutor! Good eyes, ....picking up the speaker brand. Those yellow cones give them away. And the downstairs TV is nice at 55 inches. But the upstairs TV is amazing....at 70 inches.

In the middle of a media room redo upstairs, so its not done. But this is also where I setup my "faux" studio. I can dismantle it and put it in the closet in less than 5 minutes. Its pretty sweet. Pics below:

You'll also notice my fondness for crimson extends outside of this computer build, as evidenced by the walls and entertainment console. And the blanket. smile.gif
