Just a little mod I did to my Ax1200 as I noticed the fan controller was faulty and the fan was running at 12v constantly...
First off I started by buying a Fractal Design Silent Series 140mm Fan.
Then drilling a hole in the bottom right of the power supply so the cable could fit through and connect to a Fan connector on the M/B

Heres the finished product!



and when its installed

Just wanting to show you guys something!
I purchased my Gtx 770 around a week ago and it was a cold day (18 Degrees ambient)
So I decided to ramp up the Fan Speed to 100% and put my Gpu on idle....

1 Degree Delta running at 3000rpm on air!



If anyone is considering buying one, heres your persuasion.
Also loads at around 66 degrees clocked at 1.2Ghz

My Mdpc sleeving arrived this morning, I have to say it looks amazing.
Got a mixture of red and black to do on my new power supply that I will be ordering next week! Stay tuned





This is my first time sleeving and this was the result on a old 120mm fan I have lying around.
*tip for noobs* Don't use a paper clip to get the pins out! You can't put enough pressure without your fingers slipping....




Yea I know... Dust haha

I have a question for you overclock.net users...
Im just wondering when I get my midplate what water cooling connector would I use to pass-through the tubing to make it look professional instead of bent tubing going through a jagged cut hole.
Cheers

Okay.
Update. Decided to not sell my ax1200 and sleeve that instead. I know the pinout system isnt 1:1 but ill fix that by stitching it.
Also, the AlphaCool NexXxos UT60 480 mm Radiator finally came in stock so I quickly ordered it with a pair of 3/8 ID, 5/8 OD Matte Black Compression fittings! EXCITING! biggrin.gif

Unfortunately I didnt understand FrankNSteins method of stitching as it was all too quick so decided to improvise. I Used strong red thread so it blends it quite well except when in front of the black sleeving but Hey, Cant help that.

Anyway, the first photo is of the 6 pin and 8 pin sleeved and stitched together.

This one is slightly different... You can barely see the stitching. I used a black whiteboard marker over where the red thread goes over black and renders the thread pretty much invisible unless up VERY close.



I have lots of questions to ask but only one subscriber and no one is answering my previous question so i'll save it.

After 4 Long straight hours I finally finished sleeving the Atx 24 Pin cable. wheee.gif
Also another tip - If you want to sleeve, don't buy the ax1200....
The connection is split at the power supply into 14 and 10 whichs means it isnt 1:1 connection. Which also means crossed wires and horrible looking sleeving. You can only get it looking good for about the first 5cm of the sleeved before it starts to twist and turn....

Now I know most of you guys probably are photo jumpers so here you are. smile.gif

Subbed!
Always in for TJ07 builds.
You'll get lots of subscribers, it's just that this is a new build log, I just stumbled onto it myself.
Nice job on the cable sleeving. You picked the best sleeving for it, and Nils is a really nice guy.
You've got a nice selection of parts, and once you get the TJ07, then the fun starts!
It looks like you put a lot of research into what you want to do with Project Scullious!
I think AP-15's are the way to go for the rad fans, they're certainly my favorite.

You asked about a pass-through connector. There are a few different brands, I like the Bitspower ones myself.
Here's a link, it's at a US site, but you may be able to get them in your area:
www.frozencpu.com/products/10364/ex-tub-608/Bitspower_G14_Female_Female_Pass-Through_Fitting_-_Fillport_-_Matte_Black_BP-MBWP-C04.html
They also work well for a fillport.

Great job on the build log, and I think the photos are just fine.

AH Perfect! Thanks for the support and condolences biggrin.gif
That link is exactly what I need, Yea I've had quite a while to decide on the parts while I've been trying to fund it.
Just thinking about the Tj07.... Okay I will need to use the dremel to cut holes for the cable management next to the atx cable etc. Whats the stuff they use in cases to line the inside of the cuts after being sanded down so you dont slice the wires or your fingers?
Cheers
