Hackintosh is a PC running Mac OS.

Can't offer anything erudite, just learning and not sure this is how I post.

Anyway, had problems understanding how the mobo controls fans so thought I'd do it myself and bought a thing called, 'XTunner' from Thermaltake mob here for $10 Oz. IR controlled.
It didn't work and when looked at the 12v wasn't connected vis the Molex, so I made it so:


Physically this thing had to be double-sided taped on the right as the HAF requires a solid 5.25" bay the leftmost pin dodgy and rivets at front are maddening

Full speed, notsure if so need to measure fan volts. Very quiet, much moreso than iMac at medium speed.



Slow, not really any air movement?



Bodgy Vcc. Back 80mm fans suck; Front suck and H80i will pull thru radiator using Feser tunnel-thing. Not sure yet but Demi-filters on order. Logic is fill the box with air and pump-out via the mobo controlling the H80i push-pull radiator bit.

Just wating on some Artic PWM fans for the H80i radiator.


BUILD CONTINUE:

Power Supply in:


Sort-out cables.

Mobo mounted:
Found the HAF 'A,B.....etc.' had one extra pillar that wasn't needed.

HAF front fans:
Changed to 140 mm Cougar Vortex but had to mount from inside.

Fan Controller:
The $10 Thermaltake XTuner IR Wireless Fan Controller pcb was tracked wrong. Fixed and a 12V battery used to test.


Rear Fans:
2 80 mm Fractal fans mounted at lower rear.

H80i radiator:
Used the supplied Corsair bolts to mount the Corsair rear fan directly to the rad. Intent was using self-tappers to mount assembly to HAF case due to poor thread design of Rad.



Tapped fan front 6 mm to use Feser Shroud supplied bolts. Assembled this assembly and mounted mobo+mobo plate the H80i heatsink then screwed fan assembly to HAF rear:




Had to remove fan assembly to connect Corsair heatsink connector.

Assembled HAF:



OS Install:
Using the ORICOSSD/HD caddy (USB) installed latest Mac Mavericks OS on SSD. Had problems installing Win7 on Barracuda and had to search for convoluted method that installed but couldn't be tested:



(Salt lamp globe (bulb) blew!)

Boot:
Booted with SSD and USB dongle to get Mac OS going. Went ok but had to fix 'boot0' error on reboot.

Win wouldn't boot so have to install from DVD. Now waiting on WiFi PCIex card.

Been a bit hot lately (43 degs C .. 25 degs C inside with swampy) but quiescent BIOS showed 27 degs C so it appears working.

TBC

That's why you need to be careful when ordering stuff off of eBay. If the price looks too good and the person hardly has any seller feedback, then it's more than likely someone just trying to rip someone off. Just stick to retailers such as TigerDirect, NewEgg, or Amazon if you can, especially when it comes to critical parts like a power supply. There can be counterfeits on eBay as well, which can pose a safety risk.

Not many eBay sellers are out to scam these days with buyer protection.

My best guess would be rivets.. in any case, they are easy to get off and replace with new ones..

It's just an M4 screw. My chassis has Lian Li spacers in the feet. I have a set of Lian Li SD-01's, SD-03's (Spacers), and SD-04's. I wish i knew about FannBlade when i did that, woulda saved myself some money

 

 

 

The bottom of the chassis's tapped with M4 threads. I used a nut and washer with mine, but it's not necessary
