im in awe!
I am sorry but I am gonna be on the sidelines for a while due to illness. The fans take many of hours of work each to make so selling them is not an option.
I am designing a line of custom fans for Integrity PC so when I get back to working there will be an affordable version.
To the jetfighter switch yes, you need a momentary switch for it.(momentary switch for the on/off button)
MNPCTech has them
Its a bit hard for me to even go online right now but I hope to be able to be of more use in the next few weeks.
lilkiduno, I am really looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
CD, as usual big thanks for posting your awesome work
Sorry Sniper for not responding sooner. I really could use a pict showing the case and rad together.
I would not block the rear vent as cases need all the airflow that they can get.
That's a damn fine switch setup ya got there. Are those all for fans and lights?
Glad you're posting again CD. You've got some of the most amazing stuff!
I'm playing around with plastic lately...I've made dozens of reservoirs for people and now I am trying out some ideas for lighting effects. I'll post some pics when it's up and running.
Yeah alcohol will eat a lot of plastics if it is left on them for to long.
Oh weak sauce the forum didn't email when you posted this. Alright so I talked to my boss about my idea (He is a machinist and mechanical engineer) and he really does think my 120mm psu fan should move enough air out of my case. If not I am thinking I can add another 80mm off the top of the case.
Oh yeah I will try to get a render done of my case this week. I was sick all the other week and getting back to work this past week was kinda hell.
Edit: So MKmods when do I get on the members list???
I think you may have missed the point...
wow that's crazy, I guess no ethylene glycol for that res.
No I got the point that you shouldn't put alcohol on acrylic that you just heat treated. I was just stating that alcohol left on plastics of long periods of time will also damage your plasic.
I had one RMAed that looked like it had been hit with a hammer...and that was a laser cut unit.
Since then I went back to making them by hand on the tablesaw and using the buffing wheel.
I agree. it will make it fog and look nasty. Polycarbonate can handle it though.
I think im going to use just distilled water next time.
Well polycarbonate can handle it to a point. Over time it will also fog also if left exposed to long . The best way to clean polycarbonate is really mild soap and water. Thats what we use at work.
I use purified water and nothing else. I think all the additives are a joke. Especially the Algicides and Biocides...this is not a damn fish tank.
agreed. its not like we have any fish swimming around in our res, at least I dont.
Agreed. PolCarb scratches so easily that I only clean it with Novus and Special Lint Free wipes.
Yeah it can be a bitch to work with. My favorite plastic to work with is delrin. It cuts like butter and you can pretty much cut at any RPM with no issues. On the other hand ABS sucks to work with because it has such a low melting point.
that would be cool... hmm *thinks to self* *get water cooling add beta fish and see what happens* jk i think it would be a waste of time money and a fish
it (fish) would get sucked into one of the reservoir fitting and your pump would overheat and explode! so add waste of pump to the list
Working with acrylic is messy. I only do it because I have too.
I forgot about it could get stuck into a fitting also don't forget the food and the crap wouldn't go too good in the loop...
Also could i post pics of my Xrocker i have been working on?
for those of you that don't know what it is...
It is a rocking chair that has speakers in it. Mine sits on the floor and has new wires/speakers/amp also i added a cooling fan and made (vary cheap and fast) panel for the controls because they wouldn't fit where the others did i also had to make the hole for the sub bigger and had to repair the PCB board on the amp for the sub.
May i post picks of it please?
Sure, I have never seen one of those modded before.
