AsanteSoul You sprayed the fans? With what exactly? Just regular spray paint? It's quite nice! I like that it is subtle, and very clean as well..

You provide all parts and materials and a rough idea of what you want,obviously if you dont want the full whistle and bells then i dont charge that.
This one was for a good friend so it was done for pleasure more than anything else.
As for the controller...You could get away with 2 Kazes per channel,i chose to run 1 fan per channel and have the ram fan on a 7v step down on the mobo.

Hmmm, I've got these Panaflo fans which say the input wattage is 6.5W: http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=3142

 

If I never want to run them at full speed though, could I just link up two per channel to the Recon controller and have them be basically fine?

How did you handle which fans went to which node and how limited were you by the power constraints?

Also just curious if you mind sharing what you'd charge for doing a system build like this, I've always considered the idea of getting a machine done by a pro like yourself and I think seeing this log sold me on the idea. Feel free to pm it if you want, or if it's private and you don't want to say, that's fine too.

Edit: Actually another good idea would be to use a CM HAF XB or another boxy case and mount a handle to the top to make it sort of like an ammo box.

Yes HAF XB could be really cool. I like the Bitfenix Prodigy but that doesn't really fit the military theme

If not, removing all the lower drive mounts will at least allow for another much beefier 240mm rad.

Must have.. MOAR RADS! thumb.gif
