Antec P180/P182 Cable Mod Pictorial - Page 5

post #41 of 130
Hi, spacegoast. Thanks for the reply.

Cutting a hole that size in the top of my brand new case makes me nervous, lol. But I'm quite sure I can manage i, as long as its round afterwards. On the front of the case at the bottom there is a 120mm fan blowing in over the HD cage. I've thought of sticking a 80mm fan on the round side hole in the window, which would suck air inward. Now if I stick the 120mm on the top of the case it should blow air out, correct?

ya have the top fan and the rear fan should the exhaust fans, since the heat rises to the top of the case. then you can have the fan on the side panel and in the front as intake fans.

Well, cutting a hole in the top was just an idea. All I wanted was some feedback on that. From what I've been told my temps are pretty good, especially on the Quad.

I couldn't sleep so I did some cable modding this morning and plugged a few of my peripherals into that Ultra power bar. The power bar cuts down on a lot of the dangling cables I would have had to use and I was surprised when everything fired up because there are no instructions as to where to plug things in.

Here a pic of the cable job I did. Not the greatest, but it's better than it was before. I stuck my little Sunbeam multi-port on the power bar. Looks pretty cool.

not too shabby there. ya if your temps are pretty good then there is no point in cutting a hole and gettin dirty and all. unless you just feel the urge to mod your case, lol. what are your temps by the way? you should be able to get a little more than 3ghz out of that Q66.

Anyone have any advice on a project like this?
Hiya Desktop.

Thanks man. Nice project log too . Looks sweet. That should be a lot more helpful for Desktop than my guide.

Well, it could be helpful from a stand point of tearing his case apart, but what you said here is probably the sagest advice:

I definitely fall into the "just feel the urge" category.

Idle temps are 27/28/23/27. When I ran Prime95 after an hour temps were steady at 47/48/47/42. I have done a mild OC to 3GHz. Warfarin88, thanks for the link. Can you tell me where you got that sweet Akasa pre-mod panel? I'd love to get one of those myself.

Gotta love power tools. I used to have a wood shop set up in a small house I was renting. I had just about everything, including my belove Makita cordless drill. Unfortunately I had to sell everything when I lost my home. I hate when that happens. I have always been an admirer of Milwaukee brand drills, but I could never afford them. I bought the Makita when it was on sale with a case that included a charger and extra batteries. DeWalt is a decent brand from what I've heard. Love the saw you're using - what model is that?

Yeah, I'm always on the lookout at garage and estate sales for power tool related goodies. He he, great being a guy.
