Man Chris, I see you are devoted to this rig, spending a great deal of time on it, perfecting every corner. You've been working on this thing since June! thumb.gif


Could hire an entire team with such a budget, to work faster.

Thanks Truedeal! But hiring a team would be no fun?!

Lets hope things don't slow down too much for you mail wise. That was quite a storm that hit them. I'm hoping everything returns to normal quickly in NYC! I"m taking the girlfriend there this weekend to play! Must have electricity. tongue.gif

It's an absolutely gorgeous day today here in Edmond, OK. Taking advantage of it and doing some fan prep and painting today.

These are my little baby fans that will go in the rear of the case. They are 40mm Noise Blocker Black Silent Pros. They don't move much air....mainly for looks. But they also don't make much noise. Very quiet. I think they look much more attractive than leaving meshed holes, or something like that. But since they are black and blue...we need to do a little prep and paint.







Here is how to take these little baby fans apart. First take off the sticker on the frame. I'll be replacing these with some custom vinyl stickers...but if you won't be....take them off carefully and set them aside.





Underneath the first sticker is a second sticker that covers the inside of the fan guts. Don't lose this sticker. You will want to put it back on when done.





There is a tiny (and I mean tiny!!) little round clip that secures the fan blade spindle to the frame.





Just use a little pressure with an exacto knife from underneath if, and it will pop right out. Be very careful. I lost one of my round clips when removing it. Frustrating. Now I'll have to buy another fan to finish this. Once you have them out...I think setting them on top of the sticky side of the second sticker you removed is a good strategy. It will hold it there...and you won't lose it.





Disassembled baby fans....







I'm also doing 7 more of the 120mm Noise Blocker Multi-Frame S2's. When I originally did the first 42 of them (man that sounds strange to say outloud), I wasn't planning on using any of these to replace the fans inside my PSU's (which I did), and I also didn't yet know I would order a custom bottom plate for my pedestal, which allows me to place fans in the bottom of it. So....I'm short some fans.





Went through all my normal prep work....







..and then started painting.








...I'm inbetween paint coats right now....but I'll post some pics of the fans put back together later. I need to do my 140mm fans also.

Yay more fans! Domino anyone? biggrin.gif
Also, did you try a plate with milk and cookies for the 24pin? maybe it'll sleeve itself then. IIRC music didn't work, did it?

So this weekend was really bad luck over the pond too?
Saturday my cpu imploded.. kinda... it just shut off suddenly and didn't want to work on 2 different boards. Then I came home and my projector started dieing. Lamp flickering like mad and still not getting better... sad-smiley-002.gif
Oh well, now the backup rig is up and running and everything RMA'able is in the mail. Kudos to a friend who lent me with his backup E8200 + board.

I'm glad that you could put a lid on the lost package issue and move on!

Also, with all those fans... any chance we might see a flying BBBB? tongue.gif

It was supposed to be a secret, but BBBB isn't supposed to be a computer, it's going to be an intellignent drone.

One in a million chance.

Now.....in my Jim Carrey voice from Dumb and Dumber...."So you're telling me there's a chance!" May try the milk and cookies.

Drones are so 13 seconds ago. This computer will be used to locate, map and plot exact coordinates for Paris Hilton 24/7. Just because. tongue.gif
