I am using a 77 bonneville heater core as the radiator. I had it running on 2 loud 120mm fans to cool my xbox 360. I also used an electronic junction box and a fountain pump for the pump and reservoir. That setup can be found in a thread that I posted here a few years ago. I decided to buy a pump and they threw in a broken acrylic reservoir for free. I crazy glued it and taped it which sealed it well.

I decided to up grade the fans to 2 140mm Noctua NF-a14 pwm fans. I used some hot glue to seal any openings.




As bad as it looks, both the cpu and gpu run cool even when ambient temps are high.
That is one killer setup. Have you considered doing a push pull setup?

This was my temporary setup for about 9 months.

Thanks, I've thought about it but it works great as it is. I had a push setup when I had the 2 120mm fans installed but dust built up on the inside and I had to destroy the shroud to clean it. After upgrading to the 2 140mm fans I changed it to a pull setup. Still works great but MUCH quieter. One of the 120mm fans that I had installed was a Delta WFB1212M which are kinda loud.

Hey guys, made some changes to speaker setup. Went to goodwill the other day, and my jaw dropped when I saw this receiver, its a harmon/kardon AVR 300. Ran optical to it, speaker clarity is now much better than using sub amp on my speakers. Also, learned how to properly setup a sub so I put in my JBL 10in, who's power supply died awhile ago. So now I have the sub powered by the zombie psu/car amp setup. The sound is great now, I can set my speakers to focus on only mids/highs now and leave the dirty work to the sub.

Edit: also forgot to say that I have setup the receiver to also turn on the sub when powered on, so no more cherry switch to turn it on, just one button press.

I think this is another appropriate thread. I decided to ditch the 1TB HDD in my laptop upon realizing I could fit almost everything on a 120GB SSD. Black Friday came around, and 240GB Seagate 600s dropped to $130. Naturally, I got one. That's in my rig, which meant I had a spare 250GB Samsung 840. I imaged my laptop's drive to that and I got an additional 130GB out of it. I copied all of the media over to the SSD. Piece of cake. The only real issue was more time-consuming than anything: getting all the libraries to point back to the user folders. No big deal. I stuck the HDD in my desktop, so now I have three drives in the only two 3.5" bays that cannot be removed. Convenient, right?

But that left me with an unused SSD and an empty ODD caddy. What to do? Why, a hot-swap bay of course, or as close as you can get in a laptop. The only problem was that there's about 10mm of height for drives but SSDs are 7mm. Since I want it to hot-swap, I don't want it to flop around. Solution: foam.

Oh, and pro-tip: if you keep all your music in one big library and move that library to another location, open it up in a text-editor, hit whatever command allows you to find and replace text (Ctrl+H in Notepad++), and replace the necessary part(s) of the file location by using the "replace all" option.

ANYWAY, sorry for the tangents, here are pictures:





I tried to modify a Nerf missile gun to increase airflow. The missiles are glued together in two parts and several tore in half. Oops. I ripped off a couple fins from one and Gorilla glued them in place. There was tape over the SATA connector on the SSD while it was curing, thank you very much. Then I took about ten strips of electrical tape and layered them on one end of the caddy since it was still rattling. I can shake my laptop like you don't want to shake a baby and there is minimal if any rattling. I call it a success.

Nice! That's a really sweet hot swap setup, plus it's an SSD? Can't get better than that. When I eventually get a laptop I definitely want to do something similar, and be able to swap between my desktop and laptop for speedy transfers.

It isn't hot-swappable, but it's more like a big, internal, really really fast flash drive that can be used as a scratch disk. 120TB is a lot of writes. I've got a hot-swap bay for my desktop in the mail with a slim ODD slot and two USB 3.0 ports too. I've run out of USB headers and got a pass-through cable since I'm waiting for 3.1 before getting any PCIe card.
