OK, and an update of sorts

On the condition that you get photos that is Well I've been having far too much fun with the AcRyan fans and grills I've got my hands on to get anywhere with SFF, but there has been some progress

To start off, with me being skint my dad had said he'll pay for the acrylic sheet I need - 1000mm x 600mm x 3mm, which will be about £15 ($30) with delivery. It'll give me enough acrylic for the side panels, a new window for Hellcat (hopefully) and some spare for the future. I'm going with clear, and then the front panel is either going to be fibreglass or I may spray a sheet of acrylic black.

I *think* I've designed a front fan grill for SFF too...



Well, thats not quite accurate I've replaced the silver mesh with black mesh, and it looks sweet Trust me here, I can't get pictures because I've not got the camera and I'm not installing the software for my phone onto this slow as hell Pentium 3 I'm using while I wait for RAM for my main rig.

There is a SLIGHT problem with the grill though...the fan is designed back to front :| As shown in my AcRyan fans thread, they have designed the fan the wrong way round. When trying to use it as an intake or an exhaust, the design of the actual blades and the placement of the UV lights causes the blue colour from the UV surround to "leak" onto the main blades, so you have these nasty blue strips. Short of turning the fan blades themselves round, which may not even help anyway, there is no way of changing this

So, just when I thought everything was going well something screws up. I have an idea though - I want to use the fan + grill so much I'm going to redesign the entire airflow of SFF

Its like a big puzzle I have a fan which can only blow one way (which is out of the front of the fan) and I can't mount it as an exhaust on the front as the graphics card rises to 90C... Theres not enough room to mount it on the left side, and it cant be mounted on the right side as, guess what, it would be acting as an exhaust. I need to test mounting it as an exhaust on top of the case, but I very much doubt that its going to be good enough...

So, TBH, I'm in a bit of a sucky position. I really don't want to have to settle for putting up with the strips of light, as its going to be one of the main features of the case.

Update

20 minutes after I wrote all that, I've been testing using the fan on top as an exhaust. It keeps all the temperatures perfect, apart from the graphics card which after 7 minutes or so of ATiTool was at 80C and climbing. However, I have an idea on how to cool the graphics card Stay tuned!

Lol, OK, I think I've got it sorted

The 120mm will be on the top, as an exhaust, and will be slightly towards the front and centred horizontally.

In the back corner of the left side, between the back piece of angle and the hard drive, will be a 80mm blowing air onto the graphics card.

As for the centre of the front, I'm not sure what to put there any more Brain-storming time I think *weeps*

Recharging the camera's batteries so I'll get some pictures of the black mesh grill later.

Also - had a recommendation from the AcRyan guy who I talk to that the light issue may be due to the fact the blades are glossy, so I'm going to have a go at hitting it with some fine sandpaper and we'll see what it looks like

My dad's mate mentioned he might be able to get some acrylic for cheap so I'm going to work out the dimensions I need and shoot them over to him, and we'll see

This has got to be finished by August 12th, so not long left

Welcome back!

Your project is moving along....Yay! Gotta that honeycomb grill!

Aug 12, eh? What happens then?

Heh...! "Puzzle"... ain't that the truth when it comes to homegrown designs.

Chat? I'll be around.



P.S. Take care sanding the blades, don't want them to be unbalanced. It probably won't make a difference as you will be removing very little mass...

Yeah, it is *tries to work out what you mean* You want one? Doesn't really apply to you but I think I've managed to persuade a retailer over here to start stocking the GlowFX surrounds, which is good

Indeed it is I've stuck pretty well to the external design, especially if I can sort out the fans, but there were some things which I didn't plan out like the mountings of the side panels which I'll need to do in the future. Other things include the improvised mounting of the PSU and HDD

Yeah, I'm not planning on going hard, just a very light roughing up - shouldn't affect the airflow/noise either hopefully

Over and out for a while
