Ok Coach - put me in !!! I'll get around to that, soon enuf, one way or t' other. Knit1 pearl 2, right ? wink.gif

Ravens are gonna do it aren't they, too bad I don't have tv programming, I'd luv to see that 108 yard return, and the 56yard pass for a td. I'll be seeing it soon enuf on the highlights.

I'm so happy right now it's ridiculous, but I near had a heart attack every minute in the second half! tongue.gif I wish I was back home and could celebrate in the parade... Also, maybe now everyone will believe me when I say Joe Flacco is an elite QB (been saying it for 5 years, and people just laugh). He is going to get a big contract this year, that's for sure! thumb.gif Go Ravens!

The power outage was a trip for sure. Those kind of lights need a while to "reboot" once powered back up, we had similar in the factory I worked in.

I thought the Ravens were going to blow it, knowing how the 49'ers love to come back in the second half. Looked like everyone on the Ravens sideline was holding their breath in the last 4 seconds, lol.

Interesting about that obscure rule that prompted the Ravens to punt rather than place kick at the end. That was news to me, and I been around a while.

I'm just raggin on ya but it's seriously nice to be able to make your own custom cables and sleeving, only limited by your ability. It's true I've spent way more than if I had just bought or paid someone else to do it, but I can say truthfully I did it. But on the other hand I bought a bunch of stuff premade that was trash.

On that note I finally threw away the one fan header pcb I bought, it was serious trash that would come loose at the solder joints, and I got tired of resoldering it only to have it fall apart again. One of those Modmytoys widgets. (MMT-PCB-5WAY)
But I do use something similar by Bitspower (X station) on my other rig for a power bank of Molex 4 pin connectors.

Hi Addiction (and everybody else giving great advice and encouragemen!) applaud.gif

I've been following your log from the start, and it is truly amazing!!! What a nice build, and from what I read you really enjoy doing this stuff, and that really reflects!

Anyways, I've been trying to read through all the posts as you've been progressing, but I must have missed the parts where you describe how you prepare the fans for painting?

Is there any sanding down of the blades
Is there some fans that aren't 'paintable'?

Other considerations you had doing it?


I got so inspired by your build that I wen't ahead and bought myself the Merlin SM8. Although I haven't done a build log (the guts really isn't that impressive redface.gif ) but now i might do one when I'm doing the full-monty water cooling!

Keep it up!

Hey foffer! Thanks for the very kind words good sir! smile.gif I really appreciate you following my build log the whole time, and it's great to see you post and that you also got a SM8 (and that I even inspired it! That means a lot, and I am glad to have helped in your decision process on buying such a great case)! Welcome to the club, and you should definitely do a build log in the future. thumb.gif I decided myself to do my log so people like you could get the same out of it that I got out of logs from others prior to mine. They are great at sparking ideas (and interest in the hobby as a whole) for people in their own builds. thumb.gif


As for my painting of the fans, the only reason I ran into a few snags was because of the type of paint I had to use for the green fan blades (ceramic based enamel spray paint which is meant to be used on things like car engines and the such). I didn't do any sanding to prep them, and I have now painted 5 different brands and styles of fans with great success. thumb.gif The only things I did was to disassemble everything and clean all the dust, dirt and debris that may have been on them prior to painting. As for any fans that can't be painted, to be honest people say the GT "shouldn't" be painted (it seems it is the only one that, as far as I could find, shouldn't be painted due to balancing reasons). I had zero issues with balance though, as after I painted each fan I tested it in every possible position and went through the whole range of speeds to see if it would be off balance. If it was, it would be noticeable mostly due to extreme sounds that it would make as it wobbled, but no issues there. I even used a paint that is way thicker with one coat than 5 coats of "normal" spray paint would have been. It is just all about consistency when applying the coats of paint IMO.


If you are careful and attack it with a plan, you should do just fine. The only other consideration I had really was how to go about setting each fan blade and frame up to paint to be able to maximize the area I could spray on each coat, while still having them mounted stably while drying (as well as to have them covered between coats since I had to paint outside in the dusty environment, to keep debris from drying in the paint).


Hopefully this covers what you wanted to know, and if you need anything further answered or clarified on it let me know! thumb.gif Thanks again for the comments, and I look forward to seeing some pictures of your SM8 build soon (even if it is before you water cool it-all SM8 pictures are welcome here!).

Me too! I will have some (hopefully) soon though. Between watching the super bowl (hell yeah Ravens!!!), and the amount of schoolwork and testing this week and the coming week as well, I have been extremely busy. I will try and get some things done this week/weekend though and post some updates then. I don't want to rush things if I don't have the time to do it properly, as I want this build to be flawless in the end (to my standards anyways). thumb.gif Rushing and skipping steps just to get things done and on to the next step are not things I will do, and I hope everyone sticks it out with me on this build even with a little downtime here and there. tongue.gif

Take your time and do it right.
Seems like a lot of build logs are slowing down right now, for whatever reason.

Not that its cold - now - where I live, but its typically CABIN FEVER season - whether you've had the big winter or not. Need More Light !
