By the time my PPCs orders come in, the paint should be completely dry and the rad ready to handle.
Because of the high humidity here, I learned to give painted parts the better part of a week to fully set.
I did a step by step pic sequence of the stacked fan mod if anyone's interested.
I would be interested in the step by step pic sequence.
Heck, I am interested in everything you are doingWhat was the brilliant idea that did not work...are the fittings too high on the 280
Now that I've had a good night's sleep and my morning coffee, the brilliant ideas that were squat were;1)
Trying to use the 280 that I had on hand so I didn't have to buy yet another rad, . . . (I've since concluded that trying to make this a cost conscious project will just make it a looks like kaka project . . . . and2)
Forgetting that the rads in the bottom can mount to the bottom and pull air up thru the bottom . . . .
I was thinking about slotting the lower front area of the window so the 240 could get fresh air, then fortunately for me, cgull snapped me out of my Blond Moment and saved me from going out to buy a router table. . . . though I will miss having to go out and buy a new tool
I like the aesthetic of seeing the rads from the side, but flipping the 240 to the bottom is a lot easier than slotting the window.
I'll have to have a look, once the new 480 gets here, about whether to keep it on edge which will make setting up a drain easier, or putting it on the bottom to match the 240 . . . . .
I already ordered a white HWL Nemesis GTS 420 this morning to replace the 280 up top . . . the GTS series is just over 30mm thick, so I'll have clearance over the GPUs with the thinner rad, but maintain the aesthetic of symmetrical 420's. . . . even went with Express Mail shipping so it gets here about the time everything else does before next weekend.
The 280 just looked buttfugginugly once I had a chance to really think about it. . . . . The thin 420 is going to look soooo much better.
Time to see what I have to make a PSU cover with . . .
