I am pretty confident that there is already an app for that.

Yes...they were. But you wouldn't be able to know for sure from that camera shot. I won't have any stickers on the fan blades. Just the frames.

Folding is not really my thing. I'll save on my electricity bill and give more to the church. smile.gif

Made some new vinyl stickers for the 140mm fans....for my friend Pidoma. Also did the sleeving and cleanup. These are done.






The 140mm fans will go in the pedestal on the 240mm radiator. So I spent some time in that area of the build today. Try as I might...the 240mm will not fit INSIDE the pedestal....even with the custom brackets that Caselabs made for me. It would fit....but there just wasn't enough space for the fittings and tubing connections. I still want that radiator...so its going on the outside of the pedestal. Not my first choice....but still works. Back of the case rarely seen, and its out of the way still.

But to mount the radiator on the back of the pedestal, I needed a cutout so that the radiator ports were available INSIDE the case. Didn't want to have tubing running outside the case. So...took my trusty Dremel, and went to work making a cutout. The aluminum is fairly thick for the frame, and it took awhile to cut it. Wasn't the neatest of jobs either, but with some rubber molding added...it looks ok.






Here is what the inside of the panel would look like with the radiator attached. Notice the ports are accessible...and I have a little extra room for wiring runs to the outside fans.





Here it is attached to the case, and all 4 fans on. Notice the small additional opening for wiring run possibility.







Once I get the 4 additional fan on the floor of the pedestal installed....the pedestal will be the home for 3 radiators, and 24 fans. Now that's one big box-o-cool!






I like how clean it all looks also, since the radiators are powdercoated same color as case (actually the exact same powder), and the white fans and white wiring. Doesn't look as junky as it could with this much stuff down there. Will be working on the power harnesses for all the radiator fans next...and figuring out how I'm going to do the transition between case and pedestal for the fan wiring. More to come!

Don't be surprised if I ring your door this weekend holding a bouquet of roses and ask that sweet pedestal out on a date...wubsmiley.gif

PS: I always behave on first dates so don't worry thumb.gif

I would scrap that dremel for a jigsaw. I buy the high tooth count metal blades and they do a good job. For a starting point I just drill a hole(s) larger than the blade and go from there.
But that's me. If I had to cut with my dremel it would look really bad without a lot of filing.
Works good for acrylic as well.

Your pedestal makes mine look like a baby. With the UT60's in push/pull there is only 1.5 - 1.75" between the fans.
But it gets the job done. biggrin.gif

lol... I agree that is very nice looking. I have been following this thread from the beginning and wondering what I am going to do in my office when I first get there in the mornings when this build is done.
