Would there be a large difference between the clean cut sleeving you got and THIS sleeving? It's cheaper per foot than the other one so I figured if I could save $7 why not?
PET sleeve is crap. you can see straight through it.

I have another question regarding the sleeving.

Do you have any clue what the difference is between the "clean cut" you used and this:http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1-8-B...fAudioQ5fVideo

Both say they are manufactured by techflex, but the not "clean cut" is significantly cheaper.

if you read the description it is more of the PET sleeve. it is just a dark Grey color.

If you want black sleeve get the clean cut. it is WAY nicer than PET.

the only reason to get PET is if you want color.

Got the beginnings of installing the loop for yall.

I installed the Rad and fill port into the case.

first i marked out the screw hole locations and drilled pilot holes:



Then i drilled out the holes to full size and test fitted the rad:







(yep, that is a freind's foot)

Then I took the rad back off and marked out the holes for airflow:



next I drilled some holes so i could get the jig saw blade through to start cutting:



cut out the circles:







Then I marked out and cut a 1" hole for the fill port (not easy to do with a jig saw, it's too tight a turn):





with the tape off:



After a bit of sanding:



after a lot of sanding:



with the fill port in:





with the rad and fillport both in:







added some fanage:



Powered them up to see how loud they were (couldn't here then at all over my current delta fan that was across the room):



and a final outside shot:




I am quite pleased with how it turned out, particularly since I could not afford a big hole saw.

The holes will not always be sitting like that uncovered. I plan to get these from MNPCtech.com when I can afford them:



Let me know what you think!

Looking clean

Are you absolutely positive than these grills fit next to each other considering the fan spacing ? Better double check with Bill...

I will check with bill, but I know they do because they where used in Project PURE.

Oh ok, I wasn't too sure.

May I ask what overall rad+fan thickness you end up with?
May look into a top rad solution on my 2010 too but it looks kinda tight. Does it overlap your motherboard a little?

How easy was it to cut out those holes with your jig-saw? I'm in the same situation, six fan holes to cut and too cheap to buy a hole-saw. I have a dremel too, so I'm torn as to what would be better to use.

It looks great! i Think I'm going to use your worklog as reference when I start cabling my current project. Real good stuff so far!

The rad + fans are a total of 60mm thick. the fans being 25mm and the rad being 35mm.

This rad is one of the thinner ones though, so others will take up more space.

the fans do overlap the motherboard a little. the fans edge is right above the topmost standoff.

Thanks! i'm honored.

it was not hard at all. Just use a decent blade. And i would not reccomend using a dremel for this.
