Dust Filters

One problem that I faced with my old build was dust, even though I cleaned my case and the case dust filters once every week my top radiator (exhaust) on my Corsair H100 collected loads of dust within only four months.



So what I want to do with this build is to incorporate some dust filters between the inside fans and radiator as a secondary line of deference against dust, the first line being the intake filter.

One thing I have noticed with every build out there, is that they have no filters on there exhaust radiators and normally these radiator are squeezed in and you have no chance for maintenance... if you have ever cleaned a radiator covered in dust it is not fun, you can not use a can of high pressure air as it just sits there and you have to clean manually.. and the risk of bending all those fins is increase. So all these builds look great now, BUT what about in 6mths time.. if you don't keep your radiators clean from dust your temps will rise, if you don't make it easy to clean you will never clean it.

The tools I used for this project (Click to show)


Tools for cutting and scoring.
G Clamps
Guide Rail
Cutting Disc's
Rotary Tool
Safety Glasses
Face Mask - Ensure is adequate for metal cutting







As you can see there are four 6mm holes on the out side so you can insert your counter sunk 3mm screws through these holes and then use the inside mount to attach to the radiator, these large outside holes will be covered over by the dust filter tray once inserted.







Dust filter tray, just needs to be sprayed and dust filter material glued on.



As you can see, once the dust filter tray is inserted the 4 outside holes are covered over by the internal tray.





Can support up to 5mm dust filter material if needed.





Dust filter tray closed, nice and flush with the mount.



What the tray and mount looks like in the system before I spray them both matt black and add some dust filter material.



What the two top trays look like attached to the top radiator.

NEXT SECTION IS NOT YET FINISHED

How I made the Dust filter mounts and trays (Click to show)



Cutting the metal in a straight line. Sounds simple right!! well I tried 2 times doing this by hand and it just does not work and its even worse when you try and fold on the metal scoring you do.

So all you need is two G clamps, some wood as the working base (so you don't damage your cutting disc's) and a guide rail of some sort, hard steel would be better so it last longer.

Position the section you want cut or scored just over the edge of the working base so its easier to cut, then line up the guide rail with the outside marks of what you want to cut. For other words the edge you want to keep and want straight should be underneath the guide rail so you don't over cut.

Now run the blade backwards and forwards along side the guide rail, first off you will be doing scoring. Which is taking off a couple 100th of a mm or inch. This scoring is what you will do when you want to fold the metal, when you do this scoring you are making it easier to bend and keep a straight fold. The trick is to find the right amount of scoring without going to deep.. if you don't do it enough you wont get a clean fold.

Unless you have a sheet metal bender, I found this to be the only solution to do what I needed to do.



As you can see, a near perfect straight line cut when using a guide rail.



As you can see, I have scored on the fold lines which you might want to practice before doing on your final piece. This scoring will make it easier to fold the metal, but also at the same time make it weaker.. but then the fold will add extra support and strength.. so win, loose, win, win.

Initial Testing
So i have been running the custom dust trays for a couple of weeks now, and all has been very good. I did start to get some slight rattling noise from the front trays, but after a couple of Martini's it came to me.. I have added some magnetic tape on the inside of tray latch which touches the radiator frame.. this has now removed all traces of rattles and the resistance of the magnetic tape is so slight it is still super easy to open. thumb.gif

Lights

Well, everyone has there own feeling about this and I really wanted to accomplish the best of both worlds. Maximum lights for showing off, minimal lights for normal use and then stealth.. no lights so my Son leaves my computer alone wink.gif

This is one of the reason why I chose the BitFenix Spectre Pro series, as they break out an extra two wires which act as On/Off, I then want to connect to some switches so I can choose the lighting affect I want.

I wanted to go for Red lights mainly because the only time I get for myself if late at night, so all my gaming is really done at night time and Red helps with your night vision as I normally have no other lights on.

I really liked the look of the BitFenix Spectre Pro 200 fans with the clear plastic center, White LED version. But when I looked at the Red LED version they came with red clear plastic, which I thought that this would be too much red in my system... especially when want to turn some of these LEDs off... So I went through the expense and time of changing all my BitFenix White LEDs to LED 5mm Red Waterclear 12000mcd one, which almost cost the same amount as the fan was worth to start off with..



White versus Red LEDs, was toying with the idea of having White LEDs on the outside and Red LEDs on the inside or vice versa.



Changed all the LEDs to Red and the Jerry rigged the PSU so I could see all the pretty lights.




Fan Lights Off

This is how it looks normally biggrin.gif



Fan Lights On

Crazy!!! I know, but some people like this... its good to have the option to have either on or off.




Fan and LED circuit board

This circuit board was made so I could remove a large section of wires coming from my fans, each board powers 4 fans and can return the speed of one fan back to the main board. I also wired up two points for the fan LEDs, this way I can control inside lights and outside lights.



As you can see from the following photo the board fits in between the two inside fan on the back side so they are not right in your face when you take the main side cover off.

Fan Power / Control

I only want my fans to be using either Low or High voltage, this being +7v on low and +12v on high.. as I see no point in any voltage in between. This should work out to be either quite and loud or slow and fast operation on my Fans. Additionally I would like to control all of this from just one switch, and I have no space for a normal Fan controller. So my investigation begins in how I can accomplish this.

7 Volt Push Back Method


Further Information: (Click to show)
The popular '7 volt fan mod' is produced by replacing the ground wire with the 5V rail like so:

7V = 12V + 5V

The 5V 'pushes back' at the 12V, giving an effective voltage of 7V (12-5).
Quote:
Mini Article - The 7-Volt Mod
only use this mod with a decent quality PSU as it may damage cheaper, lower quality PSUs. Also, if starting your PSU with the wire trick, do not use this fan mod, as there will be no additional load on the PSU (this could result in physical damage to your PSU). ithinkibrokeit

Fan Controller - High / Low Voltage

What I experienced with the 7V push back method. As I wanted to be able to control my fans with either 12V or 7V and I really did not want a huge fan controller taking up needed space I thought this method of getting 7V and 12V would be good, as the supplier of the fans give a connector doing the exact same mod. What I noticed was that when switching from 12V to 7V the Sense speed reported to the mainboard stopped working, this raised a concern with me as I suspect the way I am getting 7V is not liked by the fan sense. So I have now opted for Low Voltage Adaptor Kit to regulate a correct 7V and then bypass for the 12V depending if I want to run my fans on low or high voltage.

Low Voltage Adaptor Kit / Versatile Regulated Voltage Adaptor Kit CAT. NO. KA1797



Wiring Diagram



Of course I am running one bank of fans from one Low Voltage Adapter Kit (4x Fans) and then the other bank of fans from another Low Voltage Adapter Kit (4x Fans). With the above wiring diagram this is using one Single Pole Double Throw (SPDT) Switch, but if you wanted to control two setups off one switch all you need to use is a Double Pole Double Throw (DPDT) switch instead of the SPDT. With the SPDT switch you will have three prongs on the bottom of the switch as I have shown, the DPDT switches have six prongs so if you looked at the above wiring diagram and then mirrored it, one side would be for one adapter kit and the other three prongs would be for the other adapter kit.. this will mean I can control all my fans with a single switch for low or high voltage which works out to be either low or high speed or quite and loud.

Switches
Fan Lighting
DPDT Sub-Miniature Toggle Switch - Solder Tag CAT. NO. ST0310
SPDT Sub-Miniature Toggle Switch - Solder Tag CAT. NO. ST0300

Fan 12v to 7v Switch
Sub-miniature DPDT Panel Mount Switch- Slide style CAT. NO. SS0852
This is my favourite, and will use this type.

Sleeveing

Sleeving I purchased from http://www.mdpc-x.com/


  • Sleeve Kit - MDPC STIMULUS PACKAGE
  • Sleeve Small - Color-X Cinnabar-red, known for centuries as the "dragon's blood"
  • MDPC Crimping Tool + 160 Crimps
  • 4-PIN MOLEX BLACK - JACK
  • Cable Clips




As a comparison I am also using some Bitspower Delux Sleeve. Bitspower 1/4" sleeve on the left and MDPC small sleeve on the right.



Size Comparison




Bitspower Delux Sleeve 1/4" = 6.35mm
MDPC-X Sleeve Small = 4.4mm
Bitspower Delux Sleeve 1/8" = 3.175mm
Bitspower Delux Sleeve 1/16" = 1.5875mm - Way too small for 18AWG wire

Note: 18 AWG wire is from my Corsair AX1200

As you can see they are very close, I would say the Bitspower sleeve is much tighter than the MDPC and you can get the sleeve in a better size range and the black color is exactly the same, however the color is currently very limiting.

I will still be proceeding with the sleeving when I get a chance.

Sleeving Scheme



Corsair PSU AX1200 Modular Connector (Full Set 16pcs) from modDIY.com



Don't make the same mistake that I did, a Modular Connector set means the Power Supply Unit side only, not a full set from the PSU to the Main board. So I really don't see a purpose in this set as you will need to use the connectors from the original cables any how, or purchase all the other connectors..

Wiring Diagrams

Took my cables apart for my Corsair AX1200 PSU and did the following wiring diagram, also checked with a couple other sources.



And here is a good printable PDF Corsair AX1200 Wiring Diagram.pdf 48k .pdf file

Let the Sleeving Commence

So now I have watched all the videos that LutroO has so kindly created, Video Sleeving Guide Series, and many thanks thumb.gif

I did not have one of the correct Molex pin remover tools, which I have since ordered. I did make up a temp pin remover from a small paper clip, I used a thin small one and then flattened the metal down with a pair of pliers.. it work rather well.



After doing my PCI-E cables with heat shrink, I decided to try doing it the Heatshrinkless Method. As you can see from the photo below the heatshrinkless method looks much better and is much faster to do.. well I found it much faster and the results speak for themselves.



ATX 24 cable done, and as you can see it matches in with the color scheme spot on. Almost the same red that Corsair use on the Memory and what ASUS use on the ROG boards.



How I am keeping all my sleeving together, I have not seen anyone else do this so it might be wrong to do but I like things hidden.

I have done some light stitching on the inside of the sleeve trying to keep all off one row in alignment, the other row is then also done but lined up and stitched as close as possible. Then once I have done all the stitching on the inside I then put the two rows of sleeving together as they should be and then did some very light stitching in between the sleeve holding the two inner stitching in place.. just really looping around the two inner stitches.



I know the following picture is really bad, I will take another one when I get a chance.

This is my Y split on one of my ATX cables. I put all the ends of the sleeve together and then used some heat shrink that did not close fully so I could melt all the ends toghether, once cooled I could then pull the sleeving and do the heat shrinkless method on the connector ends.



Got my second lot of MDPC-X sleeving



And even forked out for the Molex tools



Nils was even nice enough to draw a custom dog for me... how special do I feel now thumb.gif

This is my shinny new water block for my ASUS Nvidia GTX 690 from http://www.bitspower.com.tw which I have to thank Lily and Vincent for selling me one as they are yet to arrive in Australia and stock is very limited.

Been holding off for sometime getting a water block as I wanted a nice looking acrylic top so I can see the radiator fluid. I did look at the EK ones, but really!! Frosted and crop circles.. no thanks.. and then I found this.

Coolant & Tubing

System with Red Coolant



  • Koolance Fluorescent Red Liquid Coolant 700mL (x2) LIQ-702RD-B
  • PrimoChill PrimoFlex Advanced LRT Tubing Clear 1/2ID 3/4OD


48 hours latter and almost 40 liters used and all (well almost) the red coolant is gone
I am thinking of doing the system now with clear cooland, black piping and colored LEDs on the important stuff, CPU, GPU and RES/Pumps and having my Fan LEDs off.



  • Distilled Water
  • PrimoChill PrimoFlex Advanced LRT Tubing Clear 1/2ID 3/4OD

System after flushing of the Red Coolant


  • Koolance Fluorescent Clear Liquid Coolant 700mL (x2) LIQ-702CL-B
  • PrimoChill PrimoFlex Advanced LRT Tubing Black 1/2ID 3/4OD
