post #2771 of 15992
I'm in the club biggrin.gif Here are some low quality pics. However it is a very preliminary stage, I will now sleeve and tidy up the cables, and then go for some light modding and minor painting. I also have to decide how to replace the stock fan filters. The final step will be going for watercooling.

How do you find the NoiseBlocker PKs at the front? mine make a low humming noise when undervolted frown.gif

I am very happy with these Noiseblocker fans. Honestly I didn't notice ant humming noise when undervolting, but my hearing might not be so sensitive.

@carmas - Nice one so far thumb.gif Will be great to see it with the cables sorted more. I see you had to mount the bolts for the top/back fan the opposite way round like I did otherwise the top panel will not fit on. I was thinking of getting the Lamptron FC5V2 FC - How you finding it, does it work well with the NB's? I.e No whining on low volts etc?


@macarule - I now have 4x NB PK-3's 1x PK-2 & 1x PL-2 - A mate is giving me a Sycthe Kaze Q FC to use for a bit tomorrow, I will test for humming with that one. Your NB's at the front are they each on a separate channel? Also a tip from @jopy make sure the HDD's cadges are not screwed down too tight.

P.S - Really like the new tubing colour thumb.gif

I would test with only one on 1 channel - If I remember right you have 2 different spec' fans at the front on 1 channel a PK-2 and PK-3 this may be the cause of the humming issue with your fan.

Yes, I will sort everything. Unfortunately in this period I have a lot of work to do, so this was a quick installation. And yes, I had to mount the top bolts the other way round, otherwise the top panel would not fit. However, I am thinking of cutting the top panel to mount a radiator later this year.

I like FC-5v2 a lot. It works quite well with the NB fans, however now I am using only one fan per channel. I will change this as soon as I fabricate and sleeve a fan splitter cable. MAybe this is also the reason why I didn't notice any humming. Although I still thin it could be my hearing rolleyes.gif

Got my Core 1000 and all the hardware except my HDD, CPU cooler and a few fans.
10325571.jpg

Now, everything is golden apart from one thing. One of the 3 thumbscrews used to fix the HDD cage/plate is stuck. Stuck as in it won't come off and it won't tighten. The threads are probably busted, so anyone got any idea on how to get the screw off? Would be much appreciated biggrin.gif

As for the thumbscrew, have you tried using a Philips screw-driver on it?  If so, then your next best attempt would be grabbing some pliers and trying to twist the screw out with those.
