So over the weekend I got a little creative. Not too much but a big difference to me and I love it all the more for it.
For starters I bought all new Jetflo 120mm fans. 2 Black to hide in the front for push, 3 Blue LED for the inside glow for pull and exhaust.
They are LOUD at max RPM, I have one of those Molex 6 way power splitters to run all my fans to move as much air as possible. Pump runs off the mobo. At 2000rpms these things scream like a vacuum but with just them installed I noticed a 2* drop in Idle Temps. Peak is still about 36* but it idles around 27* where it used to idle at 29*. So for the looks and actual function, $90 worth of fan upgrades almost seems worth it.
Now I know your thinking, installing fans isn't very creative. Matches the theme, but not very creative. So I give you...
Top was originally mesh, sides were well you know. My Dremel hated me by the time it was done, but I think I did well enough. Cuts are almost perfectly straight, alot better than the last time I did one, but I've had alot more experience since that hack job. Still shows the metal and the imperfections, but I can order some C-channel in for that later, it's worlds better even without it. Gives it some character lol
Anyways. On to some darker photos, its blue... REALLY blue. I need to redo the tubing and couplers to give a little better look, the black factory tubes hide too well and are way too long for the short trip to the rad. Future projects.
From the top. I didn't get rid of the hump yet, because the GF was like "It'll just be an ugly box if you lose the hump, don't do it" and I like to keep her happy. So later it will get hacked away.
Through the side, you can actually see the pump in all its glory. Eisberg 240L FTW.
GPU Side, EVGA GTX 660s, not the best of the bunch, but its a budget LanBox. She gets the job done just fine.
Anywho, sorry for the crappy photos, I took the pics with a potatoe and it is what it is. I need a proper camera, but there just isn't enough money to go around for these things haha.Edited by TLSheff - 3/10/14 at 6:55am
