Hello everyone, im new here but i checked this thread for several months, there are some amazing mods around, i really like what people do with the FD cases, so i got tempted and got one for my needs, cuz i want to keep using matx boards only smile.gif

Pics of mine too. Currently waiting new 970, already sold one 760. Most likely I am going to stick with gigabyte (gaming g1) tongue.gif

Load of pics so put spoiler there.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

First, teenyweeny modding, I cut out the little buttons that place 140mm fans because spacing is different in fan cage and 280 rad.

I also cut out inner circles, looks better IMO. I left one ring intact so filter wont hit fans.

New Akasa Apaches in place.

The Backside. Cables are little messy and in this picture third SSD isn't secured yet.

Phantekses for colour (and pulling air trough while Akasas use their high pressure for pushing). They are hooked to internal fan controller with backmounted third Phanteks.

Closer look for this monstrosity, Nepton 280L.

5,25 Cage was removed: I plan making there SSD-cage in the future for 4-6 SSD with easy swapping/mounting. Most likely I will use CNC milling machine to manufacture it.


Last two pictures are just for overall looks now.

Just showing around, even there isn't much to show biggrin.gif

Room temperature is about 24*C, a bit hot.

And all fans are running rather low and low voice. Phantekses with 7V and Akasas on PWM control, ~600 RPM.

that's about 5 degrees lower than mine at idle, I'm assuming that is on idle?

Well I am running mostly chrome with about 20 tabs, youtube playing and few chats rolling. Counts as idle for me. Afterburner says 8 cores (=threads as HT is on 4 cores) have average usage of 3-20%

With Nepton's original fans, Jetflo 140s, it would run even cooler under high stress than it runs now, but they are noisy as old teacher screaming under PMS.

You can cut both of the rings in the front plastic fan holder, the filter has enough plastic in it so it doesn't bend to hit the fans. Oh I see you've cut only the tiny inner thing?
Let me take a pic for you what I did, you can cut the whole thing out no problem.



I don't get it why they've put the rings there in the first place. So much waste have been put by FD into making pretty rings and fan grills. Vrooom vrooom cut them out anyway.
