Ok, I'm not going to do photobucket or anything like that because it's another thing I'm not ready to learn and sign up for yet.
So, here's part #2


Then, the new stuff an Enermax Apollish 120mm fan, a Noctua 140 with 120 mounts and a Mountain Mods acrylic adapter, plus some screws and rubber fan holders.
Attachment 144742


Enermax fan mounted in the Acrylic adapter:

Attachment 144743

Mounted with a foam barrier on top for dust:
Attachment 144744 Fan not running


Now, power to the fan and all 15 LED's:
Attachment 144745

And after all the handling I polished the blades with a soft clean t-shirt:

Those are cool fans! Freaked me out when I first seen how bright they were, I wasn't expecting that.

Kev_b Said to cut this thermo bulb off the Apollish fan so it will run full speed, so I did. Oh, then strip the tiny little wires, tie them together and tape them up.
Attachment 144747


This is now how the front looks until a 140mm (Blue) fan comes for the lower front on Monday:
Attachment 144748


The Noctua NF-P14 FLX, replaced the weak blow hole fan, it's strong and quiet but there is blow back caused by the fan grid that I can't take off 'till we move
Attachment 144749

And last if you get the Acrylic adapter to put in the top, you have to knock down the tabs on the right side of the drive cage, a tap hammer got it started but these babies are so handy for so many things, like the finishing work of bending the tabs down. This is a pair of jewelry pliers that we had when we used to make jewelry for a living.
Attachment 144750

As I said, the rest should come Monday, I'll show you the finished product. I also haven't taken a side pic yet which is quite a bit brighter now that there's 15 more blue LED's in the case.

Yeah, well I had you to tell me and there were a few reviews that said they're bright. It's an amazing concept, they actually call the fan a "sputtering fan" the LED's don't make the streaks of light. The 15 LED's are mounted in the ring around the fan blades and the blades are so extremely reflective that they make the light look like it's being streaked around the front of the blades.
It's a very well made fan, it moves a lot of air (about double the stock fans), it's pretty, and it comes in 4 colors. They're very sturdy bearings that they call a "twister bearing" and it's just as quiet as the stock fan but it's rated for a life of 100,000 hours. So, if you keep it clean it should never have to be replaced.

Kev you are The Fan Man!! That fan is a 4 watt fan and I love it when they reference the hydro dynamic pressure. If these fan companies want to remain reputable, they'll drop the CFM ratings and switch to the hydro rating system.

Got a pair of silent eagle 1000 fans on the panel which are also keeping it nice and cool and moved the red 120mm fan to the front below the optical drive and put a generic exhaust fan in the rear waiting to be replaced by the H50...
Hey & Welcome, you haven't filled out your sig lines rig specs yet but I can see you have 1 WD HDD and 1 Seagate, how long have you had each and have you had any troubles with either??
Oh, BTW nice Red White & Blue combo even if you are from Scotland. Are you keeping that theme? I'm betting you'll go Blue & White.
