Nice modding!!
post #67 of 326
Thread Starter 
I apologize for the lack of updates, but I've got a small one for ya. I finally finalized my 5.25" cage design and got it together.





Getting those holes lined up and countersunk was a giant pain in the butt. Eventually I ripped the housing off a junk drive to use the existing holes as a template.







Press in nuts, etc, etc...



I've also nixed the idea of the Lamptron fan controller. It doesn't play well with my fans and I've done enough research to know that the frequency the PWM chip runs at it way too low to filter out effectively. So I will be using my trusty Rhoebus (after I get a new pot for it, or maybe four new ones with longer knobs on them). I won't be using as many fans as I previously thought so I will be fine with the 20W per channel of the Sunbeam. That's all for now. I still need to cut some cable management holes on one of the uprights, but that will wait until I need to tear it down. I think it's about time I order a piece of acrylic to try one more shot at it, I'm just hoping it doesn't break in transit.

Oh WoW Shinji, this log is just epic.

If I had to put simple tags to this, beautiful, classy, sophisticated, imaginative, & utilitarian come to mind.

I'm just in love!

Keep up the good work, and I'm definitely subbed to see more

I have to agree with Tot, this project is super slick. I just picked up the Black Pearl on sale from Newegg, and if I had the tools and the skill you do, I'd be doing a similar project. Amazing work so far nonetheless Shinji!
