Thanks kimo. Now to actually put them successfully into practice.

And to be fair, I'm not sure I've come up with anything particularly original, yet. The bondo'ed ducted northbridge fan maybe. I've seen plenty of northbridge cooling mods to this board, but never one quite as (needlessly) complex as what I have planned.

Well, I took my toys to work. As it turns out, the ULTRA X3 PSU has a 135mm fan, not a 140mm fan. My 140mm Xigmatech will fit, but I'm going to have to do a bit more modding than I had planned.

I'm not really sure why I'm posting. Just venting I guess.

The screw holes for the new fan don't line up, so to compensate I'm going to have to gut that side of the PSU housing. My plan is to replace it with black brushed scrap, if I have a suitable piece of material. With the PSU extender I was using, part of the original fan opening was actually hanging out of the case. I suppose this will give me the opportunity to remedy that issue as well.

I didn't bring the whole shop to work, so I guess the sheet metal massage will have to wait on the PSU. I did get the fan wired up at least. The PSU had a plug, but the Ultra fan that was in there must have required significantly less voltage to operate than the Xigmatech. I compensated by soldering the new fans leads to the back of one of the 4 pin sets. Set it up for 7 volts. It moves a nice bit of air, and it's dead silent.

Thank you Fsman. I'm glad you found the thread.

Two Sunbeam Rheobuses, the silver version, make up the guts of the controller. They're a great little item. Highly recommended.

Thanks Swagman!

I think I might actually have this whole coming weekend off. So, hopefully I can play with some of the incoming equipment and make some real progress here in a few days.

Excellent work Warfarrin88! The quality and attention to detail matches well with the Lian Li.

I am also interested to see how those Xigma fans will look.

Wow, I have been busy. I completely missed your comments curly and Entropy. Thanks for the support and compliments. I'm anxious to get the fans in too. The PSU is all jacked up right now, but it's new 140mm is taunting me from the desk as I type:



No other pictures yet though, I'm sorry. I did get a little done this week on the new interior trim cover panels, but nothing worth taking pics of yet really.

I also got half my stuff in from Performance PC's, but Fed Ex didn't come through today from Danger Den.

That's a bummer, because the DD order has my tubing, and I really wanted my hands on that before I finalized my loop layout and started drilling holes for my tubing pass through's.

On the up side, I got my EK delrin reservoirs and pump top and about half of my compression fittings in from the PPC order. DANG... I'm straight up blown away by the quality of these parts. Nothing but love for EK and BP. Seriously, I never in a million years would have imagined something as simple as a rotary fitting could possibly make a grown man this giddy.

I'll have log porn for y'all this weekend, just not sure what its going to be yet, lol. Cross your fingers for a Saturday Fed Ex surprise.
