From my previous build I re-used my sound and graphic cards although I did a bit of painting on the old gtx560 ti to fit more in line with my color scheme. Hope you like it and let me know what you think! smile.gif


A sound graph display scavenged from my previous build and painted to match the black and white scheme.

Yes, it could use some straightening up tongue.gif

The 600t se always seemed to remind me of Flynn's white light cycle so I had to get that usb thumb drive and its connected to one of those NZXT internal USB expansion devices which I will also use for a micro bluetooth adapter. I have some decals too that I will be decorating the case with which should add a little more Tron flair in a subtle way.
461
My galaxy gtx 560ti gc edition is now white and I also mounted one of those black evga 560ti back plates on it to cover that blue pcb that was throwing off my setup.
397
I was thinking I might also spray the shield on the sound card white. What do you think...leave it black or white it out?
700
Also sprayed some white on the mounting frame of the h100 to give some contrast.
700
I put the power and intensity switch for the NZXT sleeved LED lighting kit in the lower 5.25" bay...just made a makeshift mounting frame with some xtra parts that came with the H100 cooler.
442
I got rid of the stock h100 fans and got some PWM capable fans and set them up as intake however I put a couple of filters on them. They seem to perform well and someday soon I will be fooling around with temperature monitoring and will post my results. For now the rig runs very cool at stock speeds.

To me it looks like an identity disk...its one of those cooljag programmable fans.

Definitely need to do something about that constrictive window.

This makes me want one of those all acrylic side panels thumb.gif If only mnpctech would do smoked acrylic it would be a done deal. I got to think about it a bit.

Well that's all for now...this was a great case to work with and I thoroughly enjoyed the process. Thanks for looking. smile.gif

Awesome, nice color and great attention to detail also love the look of the radiator. And since you asked I vote for painting the sound card white too. biggrin.gif

Hope u like it! Need to paint that noctua fan!

That is freaking amazing. Damn nice job.

Hey guys, some of us need to go to the op and read the rule on not re-posting entire series of pictures.

Alright alright many thanx for bringing that to my attention. I fixed the issue by digging around in the editor a bit, my bad, it was not intentional. And by the way I am working my way through this lengthy thread backwards so I haven't gotten there yet and had no idea there was such a stringent rule set to follow. I am just amazed at some of the things people have done with this case and my excitement got the better of me rolleyes.gif

It's also really too bad that Corsair didn't make a PWM version of their new Air fans. I was all ready to purchase a set of the high performance/static pressure models, which are in-stock at a local computer store, when I remembered to check. Too bad. The funny thing is that, with a simple little adapter, any PWM fan will plug into any 3-pin controller (or 3-pin to molex adapter). Considering these fans are pretty pricy, I would have thought they would be PWM so they could suit every use instead of just being 3-pin.
PWM fans can be controlled by anything, 3-pin fans can only be controlled by 12V regulation. Most motherboards use PWM, most fan controllers use 12V regulation, so PWM fans would work on both. My H100 is using PWM fans now, and it's very quiet and only gets audible when the CPU is under full load. I would have loved to replace the Slip Stream fans with the new Corsair Air fans.

Is it really a problem that corsair fans are not PWM? I am considering ordering a pair of SP and AFs and because I am on the quiet (Edition) side i assume that its not going to matter whether they run at full speed all the time or not.

Cool thumb.gif I'll be looking for that 600t when you post it.

Thanks for looking and for your input. There are a lot of other rigs in this thread that also have great attention to detail. I will most likely will be painting the sound card shield white wink.gif

There are definitely some advantages to PWM fans, check this thread for a few... http://www.overclock.net/t/790283/pwm-fans-whats-the-deal ...but it basically just comes down to a personal preference to what one is wanting to achieve. I for one set up my aftermarket h100 fans with motherboard PWM control.

That's OK man, I have taken some advice to cut you some slack 'cause you're new.

Consider the slack cut.....wink.gif

Not really. I'm just a PWM snob I guess. I love plugging the CPU cooler fans into the mobo so they can be controlled over their entire RPM range. Most people, from what I've seen, get along fine with three pin fans. They work great on fan controllers, and if you're doing the molex thing they are fine too. I just like quiet under low load, and I like the system to control the fans instead of me (at least the CPU fans).

Personally I find it odd how many people are OK with the molex thing. It's like driving your car around with the pedal to the metal all the time.

Although you wouldn't know it from that thread, high quality PWM fans are not all that easy to find, especially if you're looking for high static pressure. The Arctic fans they talk about are OK fans, but their static pressure isn't the best. If I could find some locally, I would pick up some high speed Scythe GTs because they have high static pressure, high cfm and they can be modded to PWM. Haven't seen any around though, and I don't really want to place an order for just a couple of fans.

http://www.overclock.net/t/1045524/gentle-typhoon-pwm-mod

Also, someone in the thread given above mentioned that "most mobos" now will control 3-pin fans. Personally, I have not found that to be true. Some mobos will control 3-pin fans and some won't. Those that do will require a fair sized MOSFET or transistor to regulate the 12V unless they have a fairly low limit on the fans power requirement. Different fans require different amounts of power. Most are fairly low, and some aren't. I personally think it's best not to draw fan power from the mobo. For example, the 110 cfm Slip Stream PWM fans I'm using now draw about 1/2 Amp each. Since I'm using two of them, at full speed that's an Amp which is 12W (P=IE). That's a fair amount of power to be pulling from a CPU_Fan header. So, I use a splitter that draws the 12V from the PSU, but still allows the fans to be controlled from the CPU_FAN header.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812119248

This is why I was saying it's too bad the Corsair fans are not PWM. They look sweet, and they have good specs. It's just a matter of control preference.

Small cautionary note here. The PWM signal from the CPU_Fan header should go to all the PWM fans on your cooler. The Tac signal that tells the mobo how fast the fans are turning should only come from one fan. Otherwise the system will get confused because there will be more than one RPM pulse. Most splitters take this into account by removing the Tac pin from all but one fan connector. So, all the fan connectors will have three pins (one pin missing) except for one. There is a slight disadvantage to doing this because if any of the fans fail (except the one with the RPM signal) you won't know it. Make sure the fan with the RPM signal (Primary Fan) is in the most important location (cooling the CPU). Some PWM splitters do not remove these pins as they should. Just watch for it. If you get really bizarre RPM readings when using a splitter, it may be due to this. Of course, in most instances if a fan is going bad it will become noisy. Also, if you're using two or four fans to cool an H100 (for example), and one goes bad, it should not damage anything. You may notice a small increase in temperature, which is a hint to check your fans. Also, we all clean out systems fairly often and will likely notice if there's a problem with a fan.

Actually I made the one I use. I didn't discover they were available for sale until later. They're pretty easy to make if you have spare 4-pin connectors, a molex connector, some heat shrink tubing and a soldering iron.

Here's the diagram I made when I made my splitter:

It's pretty easy to add more fan connectors if needed.
