Let's keep it worksafe. No one wants to hear about your rubber bung plug.

So Im about to start modding my rig (nothing terribly drastic though) and I have a few questions. Im thinking of adding 2 more 120mm fans to my V8. I am going to add 1 on each side for a much better push/pull. But i dont want to just zip tie them. I was thinking about getting some long bolts that will fit through the screw holes on the fans. These fans would go through the screw hole on fan 1, go across the V8 and end after passing through the screw hole in fan 2. The only problem is that the V8 is bigger than the fans themselves. So does anyone know of anything I could use to make a bracket for these additional fans? Or have a better idea of how to attach them in general?

Secondly, is the top rear 140mm fan a proprietary design or can I buy a standard 140mm fan and stick it in there?

Just to give you guys some heads up on what Im planning to do initially. Im going to do the V8 thing. Im going to completely re-sleeve EVERY cable in the case to all black. Im going to mod the cable lengths. For example: my sata power cable has enough power connectors to hook everything up using only one cable BUT, the distance between the power connectors for the HDDs is too long and it bunches up between the HDDs, and it isnt long enough to reach to disc drives after connecting to the HDDs so I had to use an extension. Im going to cut the cables to the exact proper length, solder it back together and sleeve it. Im going to do the same for the PCI-e cables and the 8 pin.

I would LOVE to take out the blue LEDs from my PSU and put really bright red ones in, but Im new to soldering and I dont know if i can handle that or not.

Any ideas or suggestions?

Thanks!

Well, I finally got my new GTX 280 installed about a week ago. I've bee super busy with flight school, though, so this is the first chance I've had to take some pics and get them posted. Even with the size of the 280, the Scout accommodated it very well. I also sleeved another power cable, seeing as though this card takes 2 cables. So here's the pics (sorry about the wait, Enigma, I got your PM):







And while I'm at it, here's a pano of my whole setup. I made the desk myself, along with the wallmount triple-screen bracket. I also have the laptop set up with an external keyboard, mouse, and monitor (rotated 90 degrees for easy forum and comic viewing). And for anyone who's wondering, on the left is my helmet from primary flight school, and the tie from my tie-cutting ceremony (after my first solo flight).



Overall, I'm pretty happy with everything, seems like I've been tweaking everything for like 2 years now. Only other thing I might do is make an LED back-lighting strip for the monitors. A standard florescent back-lighting setup is too thick to fit between the wall and monitor.

Oh, and BTW Enigma, I just noticed there's no O-6 rank on the front page. It goes straight from O-5 (commander) to O-7 (1 star admiral), any reason why? Just an observation

Thats a really nice room you have there , wonders where you sit though lol.
Very nice mate, soldering is fairly easy, if your not very good or are very rubbish you can get better easily within a few hours by watching the tuts on youtube and using a circuit board from something old/dead/ect

Thats what i done before chipping my first xbox many years ago, i remember that silver based solder was awsome to use, it was more expensive but it flowed very good.

Haha, yeah I moved my chair cause it's super-high backed and blocked everything. I'm decent at soldering, just need to finalize my design and get the parts for the LED setup. And spare time would help, too...

I am wondering about the same thing. I dont think it can be done because the heatpipe fins are smaller than a 120mm fan. But hey i could be wrong, good question though.

Yes you can put any 140mm or 120mm in there.

With the V-8 I wouldn't try useing long screws thru it, I think tie raps are the answers but not on the outside but threaded thru the fins on the cooler. I remember somewhere on this forum somebody else did a push pull on the V-8 and it looked like sh** with the tie raps going around the whole thing.
With the tie rap being flat I'm thinking it will thread thru it with little or no damage to the fins. JUst cut the locking head off a tie rap to lock the thru tie rap down

Ok a couple questions I can comment on. First, the top 140mm fan. You can change that to anything you want. I use a Xigy 140 for mine. Way better fan then the stock one. Second the LED's. Is it a LED blue fan? If so, why not just replace the fan with a red LED one?
