Thermal strips held by electric tape until I get something better.
someone needs cable management.
Im not sure i understand the point of the thermal strips, is your psu hot?
I was tired of my HDDs getting warmer than I like, so I cut a hole in the side of my case. I have an old Scythe 92mm fan wedged in between my brackets, which I will eventually replace with a 120mm x 12mm that I have lying around. The hole turned out clean as a whistle.
Looks like it belongs there. good job.
Though I'm kind of surprised you weren't getting enough airflow.
Nice rim-job on that hole!
LOL I was going to say that
As mentioned, really looks like it belongs there man, great job!
Thanks, fellas. I knew a hole saw would jack up the finish on the side panel, so I used one of these circle cutters and a drill press.
Smart thinking! Looks very neat.
Being a neat freak is a blessing and a curse... ugh.
Very very nice! The 120mm will look even more perfect too. Have you had any ideas on mounting it? Looks like a bigger fan might be bugger to get in there with the HDD runners.
Hadn't done much to my PC since I put it all in the new case a little over a month ago (Corsair 600T White), but my clear acrylic panel from MNPCTECH arrived late last week, as well as the internal usb 3.0 adapter I had been waiting for, so I powered down and installed them.
First off, I had been cleaning out the front detachable filter every so often, and was pleasantly surprised to see a lack of dust inside. a quick cleaning of the flat surfaces was all it needed. My old thermaltake with the huge side fan by comparison would have been much worse after over a month of use.
After a lot of searching for such a thing, and finally finding one at amazon, I had a internal USB 3.0 to female plug adapter to put in , as this case has one of the silly pass-it-through and plug it in the back front panel 3.0 ports. Silverstone makes it.
I wish the cords were a tad longer, but even with the adapter side of the plugs on this side of the grommets, it blends in nicely, so I won't complain too much. It has two plugs and I only needed one for the front panel, so I had an idea.
I had to stick it down in just the right spot under the top grill, but now my 360 controller adapter is hidden away inside the case, yet still easily accessible should I need to sync it, or what have you.
Then I popped the panel on. I love it. Not really much for pictures, as it basically just looks like the side panel isn't on... but regardless... really shows off the system.
I showed it to the wife, as she was the only other adult around and she rolled her eyes at me.
After that, I refrained from showing her the controller I made to match my system for fear of being called a dork.
Looks very nice.
Panel looks great! Love how it shows off the whole rig. Awesome.
that panel rocks and nice idea on the hiding the 360 dongle
Couldn't have said it better, myself!
