@ ceadderman, I have an older minolta and I too love taking black and whites with the 200 speed film lol. I took a picture (I full color with high speed film) of a F-18 being launched off of the catapult of a aircraft carrier and the front wheel was off of the flight deck and the rear wheels were still on it. To me, that was the best picture I ever took because it really took a lot to get it as the plane is moving at 200+ mph once it gets to that point. Plus, I was one of a handful of people that was allowed to be up there so it makes it that much harder to get this picture. I'll scan it and post it up here so you can see it. But as for pics of the cases, I'll post some very soon. Maybe I'll make an album here and just link to it as I can post way more pics in the album.

Post them to Photobucket. That site now has unlimited size constraints for albums and the advertisements are limited. Also there are no annoying popups for "Mac Defender" for people that wish to view your pics. Also every link is coded to make your pics easier to share. thumb.gif

@THC Butters... You can nominate me but I'd rather nobody did because it's not what it was before and won't be what it will be now in a reasonably short bit.

I'm a bit stymied though and could use some input...

Do I get the...

Black Ice Pro III Compact High Performance Radiator, which is copper, 25mm thick and mate it with 25mm fans to keep the setup out of the window?

Or do I get...

Koolance Radiator, 3x120mm 20-FPI Copper [no nozzles] which is Copper and Brass is 38mm and gives me a size of 63mm when mated to 25mm fans?

I'm leaning to the Black Ice Pro III but am looking for some input as to which is best. I'd rather have the slimmest possible but that's not mandatory if performance is less. mellowsmiley.gif

~Ceadder
if your going for a 360 whitch is what i think your saying, I'de go with the Black ICE Stealth GT It is compact yet great due to its fins per sq inch and isnt verry resrictive, I know because I own one
but if you have to pick those I always seem to lean more towards the hardware labs rads over koolance

thx
Ouch Butterz, I have had my sig link in there since July of last year so I guess you don't feel me worthy of a nomination lol.

@Ceadderman,
Isn't the Black Ice one made for low flow fans also? So it will really help a lot to keep temps down. Or is it just the opposite? Are the fins more densely packed in the Black Ice Radiator than the koolance? I'd imagine that it is the latter of the 2 because of the fact that it is thinner than the koolance so would need more fins per square inch to achieve the same or better cooling but that's just me trying to over think it again lol.

And @ Spidernose, I knew it was a 932 but somehow wrote that down wrong lol. Sorry about the mix up. Anyway that you look at it, it's a great looking case. You really did some good work with it. I forgot to ask, did you do all of the work yourself or did you have some help? I like the painting and sleeving the way you did it because it really makes it look clean and gives it a completed look.

Not sure there would be enough of a performance increase to warrant $18 more. It looks like a solid Radiator, but I'm already up to $415 with shipping. I'm gonna have to do some fast talking to get this much as it is. So it's pretty much between these two as they're about the same price. But I'm also planning on a CPU block for my Bros rid so he can use the kit I just bought once I've moved completely into a complete MainBoard and CPU loop.

Unfortunately everyone has been taking my advice and going with EK Copper bottom blocks. His is out of stock unless we get him the clear plexi over the Black Acetal Light kit.

Dude's Bday is this month and it's the 1st one in millenia he doesn't have to share with the Dipstick ExStepdad.

must have missed it or something, ill look again but idk
post #15246 of 23573
I did everything myself. Paint, chopping, re-riveting, sleeving.

Here is a makeshift worklog.

That's awesome Spidernose. Some real top notch work there. Your rig just give off the impression of what a completed computer should look like. I really like how you painted the inside of the back panel red so that it shows through the mounting holes. Nice touch there. I had a guy ask me lately what rivets he needs to buy because he's planning on taking his rig apart to paint it. I had to tell him that I didn't know because I haven't removed any in mine. The inside of a HAF X already has a pretty good completed look. If anything, I might get some stuff powder coated if I can find a place to do it locally for the right price. That's really the only way to go as it really gets hard and won't chip away like some other cheaper paints. Is there some spray paints with similar qualities? What I mean is that is there a brand of spray paint that won't chip away around screw holes when you have stuff screwed down or is that strictly a powder coat thing?

Oh and butterz, I was just giving you a hard time. I'll take some fresh pics of my dual HAF X's and submit them here. I'll just post links to the page instead of adding a ton of pics here and cluttering up the thread. That way I can use high res images.

I nominate lndlw. Mostly to stop his whining, but also since he does have some good looking cases from what I did get to see of them from his wimpy little tappatalk pics. lol *My jealousy showing?

Okay now that that's out of the way. I'm not sure about vpi on the BI Tres. The 480 low flow however has a minimal approach to vpi. 9 vanes per inch. So if the Koolance is 20vpi, it stands to reason that the BI Tres is about 20-24vpi. Either way I don't believe that the the Black Ice unit would pack many more vanes in there and restrict airflow when dust builds up. 20 is just fine for this build since I'm not going to be asking it to carry the load of a Graphics card as well. Just CPU and Full Coverage block. Graphics already has cooling and I can do without a block for that for the duration or until I can find a reasonably priced used Copper Base block.

Going to put Yate Loon High Speeds on the 360 and send a triple link to the fan controller. I'm still questioning what I'm going to do for PWM though since the CPU cooler will be jettisoned.

Oh, you guys with WC'ed 932s', is 4.5ft of tubing enough or am I gonna have to pick up a couple more feet or snag a bit of the clear DD tubing kit from my bro?

Man, seeing all these great HoF cases makes me wanna do some serious modding. But I have to agree with Ceadderman that its just not the same. We need to spice it up a bit maybe. Perhaps 3 classes for Major Mods(case cutting etc), Aesthetics(painting, lighting etc), Cable Management and Water Cooling. This way there are 3 different categories.

Rivets are easy. 1/8" bit to drill them out. Then 1/8" aluminum short shank rivets. Steel ones are a pain if you have to re-drill. As for the paint I just
used rustoleum flat black on the inside and Rustoleum black laquer on the outside.
