Acrylic cuts nicely with a table saw. I sand the edges with 100, 120, 200, then 320 grit sandpaper. This takes about 15 mins for a box this size.

The edges are then buffed with a cotton buffing wheel (I rigged up in my drill press) with "red" rouge which takes just a just a few minutes to get the edges clear.

I have a 4 oz can of IPS acrylic cement which will glue up about 100 boxes or more

Also needed is an applicator bottle which has a micro needle (about $2.75). The cement is super fluid and only a few drops is needed to glue up the whole box.

So little is required that I only add enough cement to the applicator to cover the bottom of the 2 oz bottle and don't bother to put the unused cement back in the can!

The 3 airboxes cost me $11 but the cement was more than 1/2 of that cost. My last can I bought lasted 15 years before it evaporated.

And, no, I won't sell these!
You can save your self a bunch of time and use a propane torch to polish your edges. The torch will turn the edges clear in short order. Practice on some scrap first so you get the hang of it.

thanks man

ok so I am done with my mod.

I got a 120mm rad from a really nice guy on a different forum who hooked it up for free if I just paid shipping. So $10 later I had a nice 120mm rad to play with. I wanted to install in my pc so I wouldn't have tubes running to the top of the case or all around... wanted to keep everything as small as possible while still improving temps to the point where they are on par with a custom loop. I think I have achieved that while keeping this relatively cheap.

H50 = $60
Res = $22
Barbs = $10
Rad = $10
tubing = $3

All in all just over a $100 for a 2 x 120mm loop. Not bad

And now on to the pics











My setup and overclock:

Core i7 920 @ 4200mhz with 1.33v
Prime95 small fft's = 100% load
Ambient temp = 25c

100% stock H50 = mid to high 70celcius
H50 with res and tubes = low to mid 70celcius
H50 with dual 120mm rads = mid to high 60celcius

So a good 10c drop over stock which is very nice and not to mention how much cooler this one looks lol

Thats is soooo, to-die-for man! Excellent work and fantastic temps!

haha thanks.

next step is to make a hole on the bottom of the case to get some legit air flow going through the second rad. Right now the fan only has about a 1/3 of an inch to get air and with a nice 120mm hole on the bottom I can see the temps dropping another few degrees.

But that will require me to basically tear apart the PC which I am not really looking forward to doing... with a case as small as the A05 its a real chore.

But yeah I can see the temps in the low to mid 60's after a few days to let the TIM cure and also to get 100% of the bubbles out of the loop

Looking at getting some anti-kink coils - what size do they need to be for the H50

the ones I saw someone using were - 1/2 OD" Tubing I believe

This is definitely on my to-do list down the road, 10c is definitely quite an improvement - now would this work with any second 120mm rad?

Do I read your test correctly that at load your 920 is consuming 95 watts? Are there other programs beside Furmark to read power consumed?

Its not the same mobo but you may get some tips...
Hope this helps

I was mucking around last night and got 4.05Ghz. OCCT Linpack tested for 30mins... went back to stock and went to bed...

Max load @ 68-69c. So, you may see something similar.

Just wish I could get a decent OC on this GTX 275
