So, what to do when the PWMs overheat like hell due to the MASSIVE size of the Mugen II precluding any airflow below it from a standard direction ?

Throw out the I/O shield and ziptie a 92mm fan, that's what:



Instant 30c off the load temps (From around 90c to around 60c). My rear case fan is an intake, as well, the exhausts are on the top of the case. Seems to be the best setup for this combination of case and CPU heatsink.

the cap of my cheap thermaltake res exploded, and his threads crumbled away, showing me why i have holes at the bottom of my "Shark" named case...

ATI 9700 Pro Steel Shim removed w/ P4 Intel CPU Cooler Modified to fit w/ 60mm Fan sealed with Artic Silver 5

Was my first attempt at a mod that actually did something decent. :laugh: Yes it too 3 slots up and yes was heavy but it worked very well.

Maybe in an old Dresser...

I've hung one on the wall too...

I'll make a point of doing a ghetto mod soon just to keep my skills honed. Found object converted to PC use is my favorite.

I usd to love wrapping my PSU cables really tight with thin electrical tape...great for airflow...but a sticky mess if you ever want to unwrap it.

its a really easy one, made of wood and random litter from my working place.

It wont be a fashion queen, but it is sturdy as hell, and should have nice airflow when im ready.

little gehtto info:
it has got a selftightening harddrive mount, made of 4 rectangular coat hooks... and is fully vibration isolated thru polystyrol plates

material cost should be about 15-20$... affordable

im at 75%.... construction should be ready in this week

Used to house a server, but I took all the sides off it and going to cut the top bit of wood off (everything apart from where the mobo sits and the bit that holds the PSU in place).

=] Tis made of win and its a bit ghetto xD

Features:

- Full ATX mount (fitted).
- ATX power supply solution.
- Open air flow.
- Black glossed finish.

Cost nothing as I used an old shelving unit for "supplies"
