I used 3M automotive tape on the top of mine to stick it to the bottom of my DVD drive.

The NXT Mesh I had before this actually fit pretty well once you pried out the "tension fingers" on the right side of the opening to make the fit a bit tighter.

Currently using this unit as it allows me to thief the motherboards PWM signal and run all my radiator fans on a custom fan curve while using the 6th knob to manually control the voltage to my water pump.

Another enjoyable evening of modding has resulted in this. Not the prettiest job, but this is the test case to make sure I get it right next time. After Mr Poeticg showed the way with multiple rads in his xb, I thought I'd give it a go. Why not, what's the worst that could happen. Well thankfully not much, I cut more case away than was needed and without the sides and roof on. It's a little floppy, but not bad for a few hours work. The fresh virgin case will now be ordered, ready for a more considered chop job next weekend. Have some pics, I might even do a build log for it if I can put the dremel down long enough.

that's another thing I like about the XB. if I need a part for it, I can go to the CM store and find it for pretty cheap. if I goof on a cut or break something while modding, no problem.

As both the Scythe and Phobya fan controllers weren't that well held because of the single sided securing mechanism, looking for a more permanant quality fan controller for the next phase of the build, which will probably be a Lamptron or a aquaaero if funding allows.

I actually love my Lamptron CW611. It has six channels total, each ably to handle 20w. I have it controlling all my fans on 5 channels and the speed of my two DDC 3.25's on one channel. With the fans at 40% and the pumps at 50% the rig is like 25dbA quiet. LINK

I have a 220mm Bitfenix Spectre Pro on my top plate and it keeps up to three GFX cards 7-10C cooler.

Yeah that's what alot of people do. 3M & Velcro are the easiest options for sure :thumb:

Dude, you NEED to start a build log. You've already done more than enough modding to get it started.
