Wanted to remove unused firewire/audio cables from my case front panel to help with cable management by not being there. But then found the USB connector would come off with the slightest pull.
Solution: Zip tie and a cut-up to size PCI bay cover to stop it. No unplugging however hard you yank it now
Well the fiancees case has had a busted up front for a while, hinges snapped off and it no longer wanted to stay clipped shut either. Finally got bored enough to rig up a fix for the cheap case, the inspiration to fix it.... zip ties
Now it has a solid hinge, and some nice bolts and a rubberband to keep the door shut, lol. Case has had a rough life as you can see.
Thought i would post my ghetto watercooling setup
That is pretty ghetto Why not move the pump/res in front of the PSU and hang the rad off the back 120mm fan spot then run the lines through a empty PCI slot?
i just sold that res so you should see my new ghetto mod in the "Your PC ATM" section
Modded a 120mm fan to suck air in the front of my crappy case.
Sucks in a ton of air and doesn't look to shabby.
Also rigged up a small 60mm fan to where the floppy drive use to be, as well as a old CPU fan on my GPU's heat sink.
not bad for a ghetto mod. Replace that stock heatsink. Seeing stock CPU heatsinks drive me crazy
It's on the list. Sadly my list keeps getting bigger and bigger these days.
As some of you may know the front mounting holes on the Casecom 6788 are awkward and only support 20mm thick fans.
so i had to cable tie, blu tak and tape down (bandage tape!!!) my 25mm thick xilence red wing 120mm
Well, I got tired of being poked all the time from the fan in the front.... SO I got to redoing it's mount and ended up managing cables too. Also mounted a bigger fan on my GPU'c heatsink.
(This larger fan lowered my GPU's temp from 40-45c idle, to 35-36C idle. )
What about cars? Does PVC piping and a DIY manifold count? 6psi baby!
cutsom turbo upgrade ftw man
ye with wome pvc glue, nothen can take that shit apart haha
Except heat and eventual degradation. How much heat can that PVC handle?
Enough to school some Civics.
EDIT - It lasted all summer. Eventually the pipes started to crush at the clamps.
i see no cable ties in there man, not true ghetto without em
Way back in time I've made myself a ghetto mod to my case/airflow looking for silence.
There are some pictures if Google translate fails.
Pick a color.
haha you win, on a slightly different note, there seems to be much 'more' under your hood then mine. I mean ive got a citroen zara but until just now i thought the mouse in a wheel was how it worked?
Jesus I thought I was bad, here's one of my entries:
That's ethernet wire if you couldn't tell.
Notice the bracket's reduced size here:
BTW, this is for sale right now. It needs the home of someone like the people in this thread
check my [FS] thread
Nice Nissan, looks to be a ka24de? Nice job on the manifold as well.
