Lian Li TU100 heavy breather case mod. Finished! - Page 4

They are not riveted in mine either. I'll try the hammer and punch method to knock off the nuts soon. I got the same fans and grills you did. I'mm hoping they'll be enough to replace the noisy fan on the Gigabyte GTX 970 Mini-ITX.

Cool! Hmm, that loud eh? Let me know how it works out for ya. I'm, not sure i would trust the case fans to cool my gpu enough. Shoot me a link if you have a build log.

I don't have a build log. I have been posting here: http://www.overclock.net/t/1456868/my-lian-li-pc-tu-100-lan-rig/60

As you can see in the pictures I posted on page 7, There is very little space between the GPU and the drive cage, so I think there would be only a few millimeters between the bottom intake fans and the GPU's own heat sink.
Also, It's not just the sheer volume of the fan but the way it sounds. although, when not gaming though, it's far noisier than any other fan in the system.

Nice. Id like to have that kind of firepower in my rig. Ever do any custom cables? Opens up a ton of airflow with tidy cable management.

Custom cables are not in the cards right now, but I do plan on getting the Silverstone PP05-E Flexible Short Cable Modular Power Supply Set - Black (PP05-E).

Also I discovered my rad fan is pulling a ton of air through the gap between the fan and rad, so I'm going to cover the gap with some electrical tape.
Then maybe I'll be able to cool it at 4.4 GHz. Not sure about voltage though. My CPU requires an abnormally high voltage for stable overclocks.

IT IS DONE.





GTX 970 now maxed out at 66 degrees Celsius! That's cooler (and quieter) than when I had it in an big, open ATX tower.

Thank's again for the idea of using 2 fans and for helping me pick out the grills.

Nice! I wish I wasn't delayed so much on mine. Looks good biggrin.gif

would you mind posting a few more pictures of the case itself? I just really want to see how it turned out smile.gif

Sure, I'll try to get to that soon. I don't know why, but I haven't been receiving email notifications for my subscriptions.
