Accident Turned to positive results NH-D14

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have an Nzxt Phantom case with an NH-d14 in it loaded with 3 fans 1x120mm 2x140mm fans noctua ofc. and 1850rpm Schythe gentle typhoon Exhaust out of case after cpu cooler.

well today while changing direction on 1 of my top 200mm top fans i accidentally poke my finger in the 120mm noctua fan and it broke off a fin and almost made my whole cpu cooler jump off my board it seemd like.

so i went crazy and threw things around for a while then i Thought i had to run my computer anyway so i got my other 2 gentle typhoons (AP-15 1850 rpm) and mounted them on the D14- with som modding ofcourse.
The modding was cutting the plastic between the two sides by screw hole so the cplip would fit. no drilling needed. mounted those puppys on there and still had the third Gentle typhoon as exhaust.

results was a drop of 3C in idle and 4.5c in load temps

so just Thought id share my result of my mishap to ppl thinking of trying this, beacuse modding the AP-15s did not make the ugly or destroy them almost u can still move them if u dont feel that it works for you.

if u have any more questions about it just give me a shout in thread or pm!

Interesting.. I've got my case full of ap-15/14's but haven't tried some on my D14 yet because I thought it wouldn't matter much, but perhaps I was wrong. I as well would appreciate some photos of the modifications you made to the GT's.

Don't know what he did, but I also did some GT mods for the D14 here.

Yes, thank you ehume, I didn't miss your great thread. Still I'm curious how he solved it, perhaps differently?

Cheers.

I am curious too. We learn from each other. For example, my initial approach to modding fans for the D14 involved filing down flanges until they were are thin as Noctua flanges. But then I saw unfiled-down flanges on another website and asked the poster how he had done it. He told me he had used a drill, and I went from there.

So if there is a third way, it'll be great.
