LATEST PICS 29.08.2012

Pictures of side panel wiring.

looking below see how i wiered up & tidied up the wiring


Ok looking below you'll see that ive marked out 12 Volt & 5 Volt rails

Looking at the top block at the bottom you'll see to the left is 5V+ & the opposit sied is 5V-

7 on the bottmom set you'll see you'll see to the left is 12V+ & the opposit sied is 12V-

Some peripherals require both 12 Volt & 5 Volt rails to fuction. bSo it's it's important to wire

up has you see in the pics, see how i've use wire i.d letters. So BD = BLU-RAY


Again looking at the image below the main power feed comes from

The PSU from a molex plug,


Below is a standard molex plug with the volts shown

Hi Cybernetix

I got to say is I love the way you put to getter the wires. you got more patients then me :)

9 X Fan enermax everest silence custom rebuild.

Bought 9 of the enermax everest silence fans has seen below.


Took the fans to bits give the aluminium ring a very fine blasting for the spray paint to adhere to.

Has you can see again below.


Process treatment for spying hang in oven for about 20 secs on gas mark 2 :lau1: dont over cook lol


Starting to look better after being reassembled.


Night vision of illumination, now where i come from that looks BANG TIDY :lau1: lol


Now after looking into things like CFM's these are probably not the best, when i've seen

Others that will out perform these claiming to deliver just over 100CFM's i'd like to

Have fans with LEDS, i may change these towards the back end of the year but not yet

What would you recommend.

More pics coming soon

Bolt process:

looking below you'll see a plain type allen key head bolt
to which i have used for bolting the fans to the rad & to the case.


Here we can see that i have now created taper head bolts by using the lathe
you can also see they have had a light blasting for preperation for spraying black.


below the bolts have been sprayed and placed in the oven to help the drying process
gas mark 2 for about 15/20 seconds turn gas off & leave in the oven for about half hour to dry fully.


There ya'go finished item think they look much better than a plain cap head bolt.


I'll post a few more pics of some of the smaller projects before we start on the good stuff

its all the small things that make it look better on its overall finished build.

every little helps as they say :lau1:

Home made L.E.D. bars

I purchased some 1/2" square aluminium bar off ebay, cut to my required size. I start by

giving them a light blasting so the acrylic paint will adhere to, i've made a few of these up

for the new build due to having issues over the last few yaers with cold cathode lamps,

as sometimes they seem to die at one end and with this build i didn't want any problems

regarding lighting after completing the build.


As you can see below the L.E.D.S. seem to imit enough illuminance

forgot to mention the L.E.D.S only cost me £1.49.00 GBP off ebay


More pics to follow :dance:

looking sickage lol. I like how you worked the radiator part as well. Even the fan wires look good lol. Are those fans good enough for the radiator? Im assuming you set them in push/pull config right?

HI Neuro. Well you maybe somewhat surprised to read this but no m8 they are not in a push pull configuration.

When I started liquid cooling PC's some 6 to 7 years ago there was no such thing as push pull configurations

The theory behind the fans on a radiator was to have fans blowing into the center, creating a cold spot

That's were I'm staying m8, if you think about it you really only have 3 fans which are cooling and the other 3 are pulling

Well air rises so why pull? so I don't see the theory behind push & pull I find it a load of cobs wallop in other words bull Sh**

I'm a old timer I.e. You can't teach a old dog new tricks - lol -
