    Just thought you all would like this.:laugh:

    This isn't the final configuration, the fan isn't staying in there, I was just messing around with it today. The fan is being replaced tomorrow with a 150CFM Delta fan that is PWM controlled to keep it quiet during normal use.:D

    Full specs on the machine as it sits:

    AMD Phenom II x4 960T(Unlocked to x6 and overclocked to 3.6GHz but was at 3.4GHz for the videos)
    Thermalright Ultra-120(Old School Non-Extreme Edition)
    8GB PNY DDR3-1600 CAS9
    ASUS M5A99X EVO
    nVidia G210
    1.5TB Seagate SATA Hard Drive
    Corsair CX430

    This machine will be replacing Rig4 in my sig. It is set up now just for testing, but eventually the GTX465, DVD-Burner, and better power supply will be moved from Rig4 to this new build.

    As for the processor, I've been extremely impressed with it. I'm surprised it hasn't received more praise with only costing $125 and unlocking to a full x6 w/ unlocked multiplier. It is probably one of the best bang for the bucks, IMO.

    Next, get several of these fans and bolt them back to back (a-la push-pull config minus the heatsink) and run them at 18V

    Leafblower? Who needs it? I've got PC fans! :roll:

    OT, how much do the high CFM deltas cost? I'd like to have one in combination with a controller just as a means of testing how much my WC system is limited by the fans I'll be using

    When I first bought the fan I under-estimated it and was careless with it. It cracked the fingernail halfway up the nail and the nail started to bleed from the nail-bed... Needless to say, several obscenities were yelled that day.:laugh:

    The 1.5TB is just the OS drive, but it will be staying like it is now for a while. As soon as prices on 3TB drives come down, I'll be putting a Highpoint RAID card in it w/ 4x 3TB in RAID5 for 9TB of usable space with redundancy.

    They tick when heavily undervolted. You can find them cheap on ebay for used server fan pulls.

    $7 a fan off of ebay. The nidec's are like 255cfm the 3.9A delta's are 276CFM

    [​IMG]

    Cool thing is mine were PWM which means you can run the power off of the PSU and use the mobo headers for control.

    I wonder why some jeepney drivers over here have such fans, usually Delta or San Ace, sometimes a Yate Loon or Nidec.

    They also like to burn up fan controllers.:D

    I wish mine was PWM controlled like that, that would be sweet. Mine's just a straight molex connector with a RPM sensor wire.:cry:

    Well at least someone I know didn't burn up his NZXT Sentry, the fans just didn't start at all. :p

    I usually take a 3 pin to 4 pin molex and change the 5v to the 12v side and run them at full 5 volts. I have the 115CFM models and they are quite and push a lot of air at that voltage.

    I like my Pana fans even more so the 38mm ones although you still need some speed control on them but if you need that extra cooling ( like in summer 100f+ days ).

    that isn't a monitor, its a mirror!!! lol, i would not be able to use it.

    and while the fans are definitely loud, they sound awesome, like a jet taking off. *imagines flying a jet in BF3*

    Well that sucks I picked mine because they were 4pin

    115cfm that's nothing :p I know for a fact the deltas tick at 5v.

    It isn't so bad when you are sitting at it straight on. Though the shop has all HP glossy monitors throughout, glossy isn't my favorite I definitely prefer matte, but you get used to it.:ohwell:

    Plus, I bought a pallet of them for like $250 at an auction, so the price was right.

    That won't be a problem for me, I plan on using my homebuilt bench power supply to power it if/when I do get one to test with.

    As for you, you should be able to power it off a 12V Molex from the PSU, utilizing a high-current transistor of some sort (or a linear VR) to regulate the voltage via sampling the output from a fan controller or motherboard header (or even just a cheap potentiometer, since that's what a fan controller is anyway). I'd estimate total cost at around $5 depending on where you got the parts. Somebody like Lazzer would probably be a lot more helpful in building such a device than I would, however. It's been a long, long, time since I took electronics.

    A pallet? That's a wicked deal! How many did you actually get for that? Wow.

    About half were broken, some where older VGA 5:4 HP monitors, and there were only a few newer 16:9/10. I sold the 5:4 monitors pretty cheap $20-40 each and kept the best ones for the shop. The ones I kept were 2x23" 1680x1050, a 21" 1920x1080, and the 19" 1440x900 screen you see in the video. In the end, I made the $250 back by selling the crappy monitors, and got the shop monitors for free.:laugh:
