    that pump would be perfect for a internal watercooling set up in a xbox 360!

    ok, well i've had this headset for about a year and just as of late ive broken it twice. I'm retiring it, just ordered creative labs sound blaster arena headset. the first break sucked,I dropped the headset on the floor by accident and the right cup is in a ball and socket type joint, well that split in two thus making the right cup just hang by the wire. so i quickly stuck it back together and ziptied it up(yes they're pink). then just yesterday the sound in the left cup kept shorting in and out if i moved my head, so the only thing I had close to me at the time was a used floss pic, so I jammed that in along side the wire to keep it from moving around. the headset still works just fine, but I think it's had a tough enough of a life, time for a replacement. but before I put it away i thought it would be fitting to show it off in here for a good laugh or two at my pink zipties.

    Here's a quick way to hide cables and reuse shoe boxes:

    I suppose if I'd used an all black shoe box it would look neater, but that's all I could find at home.

    Best part of cardboard is that it's fully customisable lol. Maybe you need a bigger boots box or something and cut out fan holes for your one:laugh: For this simple modem/router it was perfect

    Double sided tape for router to the wall and tie-raps for wires would have done the job :p

    But that would mean having to try to sort out the cable mess. Much easier and faster to hide it. :laugh: What you can't see can't....

    This thread shouldn't die!
    Here's something I had to whip up, since my router was overheating and causing internet problems.

    The 80mm fan seems to provide enough airflow to keep it fairly cool, but I just need to tidy it up a lot and it might become permanent.

    What to do when too much watercooling takes up all of the case front and leaves no room in which to mount an HDD?

    I just screwed it to the rear of the case where the small vents above the expansion slots are on the Nzxt Tempest. Just used thumbscrews :D

    this was a while ago,, geforce 7800gs cooled by intel cpu heatsink fan
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    recent, case is Cooler Master Elite 360, geforce 8800gts was too long and was grinding against Power Supply when sliding in, 6 pin power input completely obstructed by PSU, careful examanation led to conclusion that a hole could be cut out without damaging anything inside
