FalloutBoys HAF 912 Build - Page 9

So the fun part...

P6280012.jpg

I've always wanted to try out the xigmatek thors hammer and I must say, I really like it!

P6280008.jpg

P6280013.jpg

Downside of my hammer, the self adhesive is on both sides of the universal mounting bracket and I cant get it off! Oh well. frown.gif

P6280016.jpg

P6280020.jpg

Heres another unexpected problem.

P6280023.jpg

I'll sort that out later!

P6280024.jpg

P7060001.jpg

Because of that VERY tight squeeze and the fact my fan won't fit next to the ram...

P7060006.jpg

P7090004.jpg

The best part is that the top 200mm exhaust fan sucks enough air to keep the hammer cool. The 120mm isn't really even needed. Anyway, thats all for now.

Your sister now has a system of similar stature to me, and more powerful than the large majority of OCN'ers. You better teach her how to use it tongue.gif

Oh she knows how to game but I still wouldn't call her a gamer!

Now I got asked via PM how I wired up my hummer switchpanel. This is how.

P7110001.jpg

The molex power connector from the power supply plugs into the short little molex power cable that is connected to the switch. The hummer itself actually comes with 5 of these cables which are longer than the one shown. The next pic shows the longer cable which I have sleeved.

P7110006.jpg

P7110008.jpg

I just happened to have some of these shorter cables I had cut off some fans. I cut the yellow wire just like the longer ones and pressed a couple connections onto it as you can see.

You can then plug in LEDs, ccfls, fans, pumps or whatever you like. I just use 3-4 pin adaptors to connect my fans.

Hope that makes sense!

Thank you, it was really helpful. I have one question though, did you use a parallel or serial wiring for the led's?

*Edit* Sorry, stupid question... You have to use parallel wiring when using 4 led's or more... Could you take a photo of a finished led fan that has been connected to the Lamptron Hummer?

OK, so with that mammoth cooler on it,and I do gotta wonder how it stacks against Megahalems, Silver Arrows, Venemous X's etc...... what is the CPU clocked to? Those boards, for being simple... and basically a X58LE with extra SATA/USB clocks REALLY well.

And I thought the build for my other half last year was overkill. X58LE, 920 (no clock....only because she specifically requested it), 9800GTX (likely to become a 560 when Diablo 3 comes out), my old 1st gen Raptors on RAID0 and the CPU on water (she wanted QUIET, and I wanted cool.... this house is an oven in summer). I thought hers was overkill.... I stand corrected.

Good god man, your sister is one lucky girl! My poor sister is still stuck with the Athlon 2600+ build I put together for her as a birthday present a few years back. Prior to that she didn't even have a computer of her own haha. Takes 5 mins to open Photoshop on that thing.

What's the final spec list for this beast? (Excellent colour choice might I add tongue.gif)

Tell me if I'm wrong but do you want a working fan that has its LEDs wired up to the hummer so they can be turned on and off while the fan keeps spinning? If so, I haven't done that. I've just got a stock LED fan connected as you can see. However I am going to perform that mod in a build coming up in the next few weeks. Should be sweet! Oh and don't even get me started on how awesome the colour choice is! (Its still a secret.)

First of all, when you mentioned how hot it gets in summer there, it reminded me of when we first started modding our HAFs together. Man I love that memory! Makes me want to get out and paint something!

At the moment I haven't manually overclocked the CPU at all so its at about 3.3 I think. I'm pretty sure I'll leave it stock as I don't want my sister ringing up asking me why her machines bluescreening or anything! That said, I might just have to have a little play with it before I hand it over again!

I don't think I ever did tell everyone why shes getting this big upgrade. Its because the 780i cata-exploded. Well not really but for some reason it would no longer display anything no matter what. Dead... At least your sisters rig is still working!

The new specs.

CPU - Core i7 920 D0
Motherboard - EVGA X58 SLI3
RAM - Corsair Dominator 1600 C8
Video Card - EVGA GTX 295 Co-op Edition
Power Supply - XFX 650W Core Edition (or something like that)
CPU Cooler - Xigmatek Thors Hammer
Hard Drive - Samsung F3 1TB
DVD Drive - LG GH22NS50 (I'd laugh if that is the correct model no.)
Case - Cooler Master HAF 912 Advanced
Switch Panel - Lamptron Hummer
Case Fans - Cooler Master R4 Green LED

Green ftw!

Hows about a little fan mod?

I poked the stock LED out of its home with a screw driver. It was easier than I thought it would be. I then cut the old LED off.

P7150012.jpg

After making sure I had the LED on the right wires, I soldiered on one terminal. I then used small heatshrink over that terminal to stop it shorting.

P7150016.jpg

I then did the same to the other terminal and used larger heatshrink over both terminals. This was just to neaten things up.

P7150007.jpg

I then just pushed the LED back into its hole and moved onto the next one!

P7150010.jpg

P7150027.jpg

P7150022.jpg

The next pic is without the dust filter.

P7150031.jpg

If you've ever wondered about changing the LEDs in a fan, I say go for it. You'd be suprised by how easy it is!
