First and number one. I love the aluminum standoffs you used for the radiator. It is perfect. They allow the case to breath normal and it is stands away and close enough to be part of the rig and properly cooled.

It's like a booster device on some sort of inter galactic space transport

what exactly do you mean by a blowhole fan? Kind of curious now. I have both fans on the radiator pushing air into the case as of right now.

Blowhole, like in a Whale or Dolphin, the hole on the top of the case. It takes the hottest of the air & pumps it up and out!

^^^^ Which suddenly makes me question why the back fan blows out, if it blew in, wouldn't it increase the airflow through the blowhole? I mean in the picture above, there isn't much choice using an H50, it has to go out & the Noctua creates a 2ft draft above it. But.....thinking.gif

Yes, yes yes, it depends on your motherboard or rivet removal skills but yes we've done it. I think I was first.

Other, bad news. Ok, know all the problems I've been having?? Three HDD's toasted, lots of other seemingly random stuff happening? My mobo is wracked!! Gotta send it back to Evga for the RMA process. Just trying to get one to take it's place in the meantime. Not much money right now, some strange stuff selling the trailer which amounts to theft in the minds of everyone around us. I've been gutting the place so that if they do take it, it won't be worth much! gunner.gif

Edit: Oh, that rad with the standoffs. Primo idea!! The fan blowing in instead of out? Hmmmm, see above.

BrendenB.. I have to say quite the opposite. I think your chisel work was just what the Dr. Ordered.. The cut looks good and you got no filings everywhere. I am very proud that you got that big card in there.. Very nice work.. I am much like you. In my life I have used a lot of strange tools to complete a job.. People like us are the innovators of tomorrow.

Well I guess I need to put some pics up so here yall go. I am hoping to do more later down the road.

I am not sure if any one has said this or not but as you can see in one of my pictures I have a mesh grill on the back of my side fan, I store this off the bottom of the case since I'm not using the dust guard they supplied for the PSU all I did was trim it up a little its not 100% flush but gets the job donw for now.

Yeah, I'm kinda missing it right now. Then again, what would I mount it on once I send this puppy off to Evga? Then again again, how are they going to replace an LE (limited edition) motherboard? Ooooh Maybe they'll give me a classy in it's place! Naw, not likely, I'd love the FTW3 board, that would be sweet.

Oh the video card, running these 480's gets expensive, looked at my little app that APC provides, PowerChute & with 2 of these monsters running it's a big part of why my power bill has been high. Then again, they do keep the room warm!


Edit: Ok, SHHHHH! The plan is, switch out my motherboard with Mindy's, say I'm fixing her DVD drive.... it's been under my desk for 2 weeks. Then, hey hun, your fan is broken!! Guess you better send it in to get fixed, after all you have the lifetime warranty!!

Something tells me that you have it all figured out in your head. There is too much thought in the parts. Don't be silly.. You are going to be wonderful.
Now where is your Teflon Tape. You can get it at Walmart or any hardware store or Auto parts dealer. You wrap it around the treads of the mounts to stop leaks from the start. And then do at least a 3 hour leak test afterwards.
