Yeah, but that way I'd be losing internal volume that way, thus having to make the case larger. The way I have it in my head right now, it is a very simple design, using only 16 screws for the frame itself. I think it should be sturdy enough, because 8 of those screws will also be attached to solid front and back panels, and sides are a single solid piece, with only one cut (if I can bend it tight enough, that is). I certainly don't plan on kicking it around. I'll post a close up of a joint once I get back home tonight.

Weird as it sounds, reading the last few posts inspired a solution to a sticky problem on the case I'm building, even though the problem and solution aren't even remotely. This is why we post build logs, etc.: to inspire and educate others and to seek help, not just to show off (although there is nothing wrong with the latter). Thanks, guys!

Come on! You can't bait us like this and not tell us what you are doing.
I do it to show off.

Glad something good came of this smile.gif

Anyway, like I said before, here's the joint. The holes are numbered. Hole "3" is 6mm on the outside, 4mm on the inside, it's for attaching the fans to the frame using rubber screws. Hole "1" is 3mm and it's going to connect the two frame pieces together and also screw into the front panel. Hole "2" is the same as "1", except it doesn't connect to the panel.

Actually, I can. devil-smiley-019.gif You'll just have to follow my build log to see what it is since I haven't got that far yet and it's a bit difficult to explain.

That works quite well. thumb.gif

I was asked:
Quote:
I'm looking for new fan for my Mugen 2 rev. B and someone on reddit advised me to contact you.
I'm currently thinking about few fans, but can't decide which one should I pick:
- BeQuiet Silent Wings 3 120 PWM
- Thermalright TY 127 120 PWM
- Noctua NF-P12-PWM
- Enermax T.B.Silence PWM ( UCTB12P )

Silent Wings 3 should be quietest, but I'm concerned about it's performance. As far as I checked Noctua is louder, but have much better performance.
It's hard to find anything about TY 127 and UCTB12P looks like something in between SW3 and NF-P12.
I want something at least as "powerful" as stock Slip Stream (preferably better) while quieter.

What would you suggest?

Considering the Mugen 2 rev.B is fairly common cooler I'm posting answer here:
I don't know what your case clearance is like or how your fan clips work, but if clips would work and 140mm fan would fit and I probalby use TY-147A. It's 140mm instead of 120 so needs more clearance, but your Mugen 2 finpack has a 130x107mm face area. TY-147A is 152x140 outside measurements with 120mm fan mounting holes.

Possible problems:
Fan frame is not square cornered so not sure if fan clips will reach mounting holes.
Could modify clips or use zip-ties.
Fan 140mm height may not fit between RAM and case.

Advantages are:
Increased airflow area in corners of finpack
Increased airflow area over heatpipes in these corners
Increased airflow below finpack to improve motherboard component cooling (if RAM is not too tall)
One of the very best airflow to noise ratio fans there is.

@doyll
Unfortunately my ram is pretty high (Corsair Vengeance Pro Red) so I had to mount my current 120mm fan a little higher than normal. Currently with 120mm fan I have ~3mm from fan to case (CM 690 II Advanced), there is just no place for 140mm fan. Could you recommend some 120mm fan?

be quiet! Shadow Wings 3 appear to be very good.

I've used TY-127 on Macho SBM and liked it.

Gentle Typhoon 1850 or 2150 rpm PWM are arguably the best.
Phaneks PH-F120MP is quite good.

I have used GT and F120MP and find them very good. I have not used Shadow Wings 3, but geggeg tested it recently and likes it. I trust his judgement.
post #660 of 1067
Hey @doyll quick question, I thought I would put it here for general knowledge.

I'm needing a second Phanteks PMW adapter, the one that used to come with the tc14pe so I can control my non pmw fans with the pmw header on my motherboard. I contacted their support and they said they don't make it any more, and pointed me at their splitter hub, which I don't really care to use for my small case. Is there some where where you get them or some other brand of them you use? What would you recommend me for this situation?
