I wanted to extend the card reader's cable to allow nicer cable management, but when I spliced it I saw the foil there. Now this project has been on halt for weeks.

The foil is to shield the actual cable from possible interferences. You can test it without the shielding to check if it works

I'd probably advise against that. Those rpms can explode a cd muchless a fan.

It's not going to have much torque to spin a giant fan though.

That's what I guessed, cause I've seen the same thing on TV antenna cables, but thought I might confirm my beliefs. Back to soldering my extension.

Moreso for a possible mining rig. if I can turn the bucket sideways and cut holes in so the cards fit in exactly with their blowers facing down, they'd get a ton of air.

That's actually pretty cool, wish I had thought of it 22 years ago when I lived in a house with no AC. Might come in handy this summer, my office gets pretty warm.

Fiber-glassed "Skull" to Front Panel wink.gif :









Should I re-paint it? Or keep it black? tongue.gif

Was bored and missed doing custom glass work.... lol

Also added a side window as the case came OEM with "mesh"


This was my "old" rig...now used for "back-up" and 3D media streaming to my TV's.
Sadly...My new rig isn't "ghetto" at all (too pretty to be ghetto)...need to add some "Ghetto-ness" wink.gif

**Edit** Will be adding some "ghetto-ness of sorts very soon for you guys wink.gif

Suggest you paint the skull using some Phosphorescent Lightning Bug Glo-Juice .... smile.gif

although... since it has to be ghetto... you'll have to scrape the Radium from some old watches and the like in order to create the powder for the paint smile.gif
