Hey MK, do new fans require a burn in to loosen up, maybe causing a bit more motor heat for the maiden voyage?

They shouldnt need a burn in. Those fans are pretty cheaply made, while they are off:laugh: spin one and see if it spins freely or if there is any resistance or vibration.

One of the reasons I work a lot with the Silenx fans because of my mod to them as well as their quality internally is pretty good. I disassemble each one, clean it good (remove the grease) and replace it with different lubes (depending what I have laying around) My fave is high temp brake grease (comes in little packets from my local auto parts store for .99)

what gauge wire are you using to run all the fans. And are u using a controller or just straight?(controllers get hot when you turn them down)

It dosent seem like its too many fans on 1 line at all. Remember just because a fan says .53A dosent mean its that all the time.(usually its less)
I used 22g wire. The normal fan gauge wire.. I didn't use anything besides scrap wires from cutting..

I'm not using a controller, don't like controllers since I did it with my Cosmos system...

I did a second run for 15 mins and the fans wheren't as hot as the first time..

Glad it fixed itself like SP mentioned....

22ga is the min I would use for 120mm fans (18 is better)

If you get bored here is a quicky on greasing the fans

first find the back side, remove the sticker


Than the dust/grease plug


Than the small white plastic snap ring (I use tiny screwdrivers)


Than I use brake cleaner to clean the parts (evaporates quickly with not much residue)


Than I just grease the shaft(just a little) and a dab in the bearings hole before installing the blade


Than just reverse the assembly and voila!

anytime...I just happened to have a bunch of those fans laying around...

In the first post I put a link to a wiki that shows how many amps for each wire gauge
http://wiki.xtronics.com/index.php/Wire-Gauge_Ampacity

Just because you can run wire at it limit dosent mean you should, I always try to build in a bit of leeway by using the next larger gauge wire. Also wires that are tightly wrapped and in tubes wont run as much current as wires in free air (thats how I did my GPU power wires on the Qpack mod) so take that into consideration as well.

Fans where running last night while I was cleaning up the mess I had on my desk from all the wiring.. No heat from the fans.. Don't know quite what it was..

Now, if I can get a straight answer from MM on the custom top I'll be almost all set to go.. And start my next project.. Mini water system in HTPC! glah....

Thanks for the fan breakdown Mark. But the Silenx have no rubber plug right? They are just sealed with the sticker I thought. Hence the inevitable leaks...

I should try rebuilding them (as expensive as they are).

On the 25mm ones (thickness) I actually had to drill out the center. The 38mm versions have a small plug under the sticker.

Because of the cost ($$$$$:eek:) definately rebuild them.. Il take apart the green one I got from you last week tomorrow.

Ok, so after building my first case mod (Freeman's Box :rockout:) I got a taste of the how much fun it was to take something and make it your own. I have enough extra parts to build another pc and decided to make a custom case. Not my own constructed case, but an object that was meant for something else. After lots and lots of idea's I decided to transform an old type writer.:) I am tying to be original so has anyone ever seen a type writer mod? I hope not cause I am starting a project log soon.

Here is an example pic of my idea, what do your guys think?

(Image is just a rough draft)

@t77snapshot, ROFL that pic is gold, nice one dude.

Great idea; the key is definitely to get the original keyboard to work with it. You want this thing looking STOCK. That's what I would love to see anyway.

I am in the middle of doing it. I changed my direction a bit (economy).

What I have come up with is what I think is pretty cool, basically the hardware that I use in my Qpack mod will be removeable and fit into the Tribute case. Basically it will just pop out and plug into the Tribute case so I will have a choice of using SFF or the Watercooled Tower.

I owe a large part of it to you and my friends of BBoCMC....:respect:

My thought is (this is gonna be so amazing) Imagine me at a Lan party with my Qpack mod, Pretty sweet right, no wiring running cool and someone says "Hey you should water cool that"
So I reach under the desk and pull out the shell of the tribute case, I unplug the hardware of the qpack (takes about 25sec to remove all) and basically plug the same hardware into the Tribute shell (takes about a min with all the water cooling stuff) and voila!

Imagine a line of cases that are modular so the parts are interchangeable...when you want a new face piece you just swap it for another.. Or want a CF mobo tray just pop out your alum/steel one and replace it with a CarbonFiber version...How about if you want to change from air cooling to water, just pop in the new panel designed to mount the rad fan assy...

Thats my thought

I am about to try and add a W/C loop to a NZXT Panzerbox. Anyone have any recommendations on where to place the parts. The 2x120 radiator will go up top (on the inside), I have a EK-150 resevoir I'd like to put in and a MCP655 pump. I have an idea of where things could go, I'm just wondering if anyone has any creative ideas! Here is the review for the Panzerbox with all the pictures needed: http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/NZXT/Panzerbox/4.html

I love cutting, beating and banging my cases, so any input will be very appreciated. :toast:

I am about to try and add a W/C loop to a NZXT Panzerbox. Anyone have any recommendations on where to place the parts. The 2x120 radiator will go up top (on the inside), I have a EK-150 resevoir I'd like to put in and a MCP655 pump. I have an idea of where things could go, I'm just wondering if anyone has any creative ideas! Here is the review for the Panzerbox with all the pictures needed: http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/NZXT/Panzerbox/4.html

I love cutting, beating and banging my cases, so any input will be very appreciated. :toast:
thats a hard one because its so different than existing cases, I really like the way CD mounted his res and pump on the Antec 900 he did.
