    i just ordered a "Rockford Fosgate PRIME" 10 inch sub. I only got one right now but i want to try them out before i get a 2nd and i don't have the money right now.

    now what this has to do with anything in this thread is i am going to use it on the setup i have showed above. Also here is a shot of the setup now kinda cleaned up and out of sight somewhat

    well yes i mean below.
    yes it sure is. I have a Silverstone 700w that has had all of the extra wires removed and the 12v rail raised to the max voltage(13 something)
    works wonderful so far.

    I had the problem of my Onkyo TX-SR507 getting too hot in my entertainment console. I wanted to cut the back of it out but there was too much dispute over whether this would decrease the value of the hand-crafted piece. Consequently I had to come up with a cooling solution that fit the very narrow tolerances of the console, did not ruin aesthetics, was incredibly quiet and also didn't rely on much user intervention. As a result I came up with a 250mm x 30mm fan and a passive thermal switch. I wired the fan up to a 12V@1A AC adapter. The result is:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    It cools absurdly well and is very quiet even though it only has around 5mm of space above the fan to draw air. Best of all it's barely noticeable unless you're right in front of it. The thermal switch doesn't work very well though and seems to click on and off with no recognizable pattern. I've used a multimeter to verify that it does not perform as expected. My only guess is that the thermal switch has an absolutely insane hysteresis.

    My little moded psu :p

    EXTERNAL CASE: Deer psu company and it's metallic shiny new
    FAN: ADDA from a Sparkle 250w psu
    SLEEVED WIRES: OCZ STEALTH XSTREAM 600w
    INTERNAL POWER: L&C computer co. Model: LC-B450E

    1- Cleaned everything
    2- Tested the fans to choose the one i'll put in.
    3- Cutted all wires then figure out which wires would be useful or not.
    4- Put back the 20+4 main plug, 4 pins cpu plug and a serie of 3 molex plugs.
    5- Cut excedent wires at the source to be sure they don't ground somewhere.
    6- Reassemble everything and test.

    Just to show that you can get a good psu for free and with some spare time and a local computer store that give you their scrap for free. :p

    Now I have a 450W psu that can throw 230w combined load on the +5v and +3.3v or 422w combined load on +5v, +3.3v and +12v with a 18A on the single 12v rail.


    I also did the double power on the cpu plug to handle the overclocking. The cpu plug has 2 yellow and 2 black wires but i jointed the 2 yellow to 4 yellows wires on the board and same thing 2 on 4 for the black grounds.

    I would bolt the PSU under the shelf where the car amp is. dont bolt it at same level as the car amp but on top under the shelf. Twist the car amp in front so you can acces easily the adjusting screws and tyo finish oyu make a wood panel to hide it but holes ..one for the intake of the psu fan and 2 others for 2X 120mm fan to cool down the amp. If you need acces just flip the front plate and adjust the screws on the amp.

    Well, if you could figure out the bases of cases having something around it.. Think of Sunbeams Whereever Rack.. if you could base something that can cover the mobo in a case.. I think it would go.. The Whereever rack only goes up to 2 fans. If you get them fixed right... a cover like that could have some oc'ers going for it, or even people that live in the heat and get problems due to their mobo's overheating..

    Could it be a good idea to buy the new 250mm fans and put it over the motherboard on top of an old horizontal case that i previously cutted the hole on top ?
