Cut the PCI brackets off on each side of the PCB


Drill some holes for the knobs


Hot glue or strong adhesive tape to mount the controlles



Didn't really cost $ me nothing biggrin.gif


really love the idea thumb.gif an improvement to this would be to add a HDD or a dual SSD mount in the same bay (which shouldn't be too hard)

not sure if you are considering some more of these, but if you do here are some things to consider: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


_
The Sunbeamtech Rheosmart PCI Fan Controller (_LINK_) which has 20w on the single channel (at least 2 powerful fans) and PWM control:





_
The Silverstone FM121 fan (_LINK_) which is a great fan spec wise, dual ball bearing fan with 800RPM to 2400RPM and Max. 3.26mmH2O & 110.03CFM and comes with this controller:

(the controller also comes in black AFAIK)

with a bit of spray you can make this fan great looking if White isn't your choice of color and the controller is great for your mod scheme.

Here is my final build and work/play area:

post #2743 of 8430
Here's some updated pics of my c70. Installed full window (thanks sebar), upgraded from a 560ti to a 680, added the nzxt hue and mounted my hyperx 3k. also a custom backplate for the 680 (copied the sapphire toxic) which i think came out great.

Great idea thanks smile.gif
I'm pretty sure I can get a HDD/SSD in the bay without a problem.
I'm gonna be powering 2 fans off two of the controllers. Not sure how well they will hold up to the task. I got the fans with controllers for $4.99 each

I like the smaller form-factor of those you mentioned...they're most likely better quality too. May consider them if mine don't hold up.

sebar a member on here has been making them for the C70. I'm not sure he is still taking request but give him a shout.
I had mine cut at my local glass company and just had to drill the holes for the trim.

You did the backplate or someone else's custom work? (by your design)
nevertheless, great idea for a backplate. Sapphire knows their looks sometimes (when they aren't doing blue PCB cards)

those roswill fans look good (i guess they are especially when spun up in your rig). again, best use of those PCI controllers i've seen in a while and it is not like anyone would have actually used them in a PCI slot. but for the price i think those included controllers may be only like 10W which is maybe enough for two fans (it would work but not on really powerful fans) so the Sunbeam PCI controller might be good.

also, i suggested the SS fans since they are great and if you are willing to get the spray can out again the could be great for your build and front controller. biggrin.gif

Thanks....there's a guy named dwood who laser cuts backplates and other stuff so i ordered an all black 680 backplate and did the paint work myself then slapped on the sabertooth decal.
