Hi,
Nice
If you still get pump noise
Try rotating the pump 90 degrees maybe it will help
The feed/ inlet is in the middle but the out trail can differ where it is depending on how it's mounted.
Here's my d5 top as an example again, center top inlet but outlet on the side pump res combos are the same way.
So the d5 position might be in conflict with the inlet since your distro plate pump is sideways.

Case had a dead usb port, rather than leave a port you could plug things into and nothing happened I decided to try to unsolder the cable and rotate it 180 degrees to see if it was a factory flub and the little pcb got so hot the usb 3 port fell off (I got fed up trying to use a little 15 watt iron and used a torch) so ghetto mod it is. Tried color matching but didn't have the right blue so decided on red. Used superglue with baking soda to make it permanent.

One of my friends brought his old XBox 360 Arcade to my workshop. Had some bits and pieces missing, and its ODD got stuck: it was working, but not ejecting, meaning you could only play NFSMW on it, whether you like it or not :D
It was already in a rough cosmetic shape, and my friend had no money, so the main goal was to make it work without any $$$(regardless of cosmetic consequences).
The eject mechanism was literally fixed using some lube and a condom:fear:, while the missing eject button was replaced with a hole in a corresponding place and an M6 bolt. Later he put in a shorter M6x25 bolt, which made it look more "aesthetically pleasing":roll:

My internal water pump is dead/dying, vibrating and making the worst noise. Currently using paper towel and a shirt to lessen the noise until i find a new one at a reasonable price. To replace that res/pump combo currently is 3x the price i originally paid. If i have to pay that much ill just go all external. Its reduced the water flow so much my fans need to spin now :(. I still have an external pump working though otherwise the pc would be turned off. Forgive me for the dust lol, side panel has been off for 2 weeks now and its well overdue for a clean

What's up, slackers! Looks like I'm not the only one who took a couple of weeks off TPU forums...
Got a couple of post-apocalyptic ghetto-mods for today.
1) Due to non-stop blackouts had to make my UPS run a wee-bit longer to keep my server rack alive. Charging is a bit of an issue sometimes, but I may solve this in a few days with a cheap-ass smps charger.
IMG_20221111_193240.jpg
2) Got a present from a friend of mine. Of course, it was a little glitchy and required some reworking, but after some soldering and tweaking it came back to life. The only issue - it's an underwater flashlight with hall sensor instead of mechanical switch or slider, and the rubber stopper under the button is super-worn. Can turn on on its own and overheat in my backpack(it's meant to be cooled by ambient water through the metal chassis). So, rubber bands to the rescue!!! Not only does it work as a "safety", but also helps to use it in "hold/release" mode :D

Excellent! I think I might try that with one that needs a battery replacement!

I took the GTX 1060 I was using out of the relic in my system specs because it was more card then I need for the games I play, and installed another ancient relic, a FirePro W7000 (I love BIOS overclocking and undervolting GCN1.0 GPUs using VBE7). Since this is a heavy single slot GPU, I realized I needed a GPU brace. After wandering my castle, I found a new dental irrigation syringe. I cut it to the right length and it made a perfect brace for 0 dollars and doesn't look terrible. :D

If you want a nicer look/maybe more flexible, check out "Sugru" mouldable glue.

Oh no, looks like a Fractal Focus G that's the same colour as mine! I got mine in 2021 for the Comet Lake 10600K build. The USB ports seem fine on mine. I think I'll know fast, because I used it to install an OS, IIRC.

I recently get myself RX 5700 Reference model...well it was working OKish but cooler noise was horrible....so I found some broken ATI 4890 with the working cooler and decide to swap and see how that goes.....I need it to get something to cool my memory and VRM I have some small aluminium coolers and for memory I cut and modified some old standard memory shield.....

DSC_0017.JPG

Upper 2 memory chiplets are touching the cooler surface but the rest of 6 chiplets need it some "Ghetto" solution :)
DSC_0019.JPG

I used sandpaper to polish nicely surface of the old ATI cooler.........
DSC_0016.JPG


I also flash my own modified bios version on the card to keep it undervolted&cold.....all in all card is really quiet now + could be OC if I need it.....when works on 1700 Mhz In 4k benchmarking temps are Great GPU barely passing 60c with the hot spot of 71c memory when is OC reaching 81c and VRM can not pass 65c.......

I once tried ziptying a delta PFC1212DE-F00 120x38mm fan to my Phanteks PH-tc14pe along with 40mm of fan shrouds. At first everything was great but about 6 months later I noticed the zipties had loosened up considerably (probably because of the torque of the 5500RPM delta fan but had also broke loose two of the fins on the heatsink [which were just crimped on to the heatpipes rather than soldered]). That was the end of that cooling experiment.

Benchmark Scores Me no know English. What bench mean? Bench like one sit on?
Thought I'd add an old notebook drive to my server. Problem was, the case's (A beaten up, Thermaltake Element G) 2.5" mounts are on the PSU partition thing, which I had removed (long story).
With SSDs, I get away with just letting them sit unfastened somewhere (bottom drive in the second pic). Not very comfortable with doing the same with spinners though...

The solution? Grab a couple mobo risers, and mount the drive to the side of the 5.25" bay.
IMG_0271.jpg IMG_0291.jpg
Had to mount it skewed a little bit though. The screw holes on the bay's side don't match the ones on the drive. Top screw is holding to the edge of the large ventilation(?) opening. Doesn't resist much shear force to speak of, but it's holding enough. It's not like I'll be making a habit of flipping the chassis and slamming it on the floor.

Over the last few days, I've been doing some more modding. This time, my CoolerMaster HAF XB-EVO case.

I've always been frustrated by the "hump" on the top of the case. It's meant for a 240mm rad, but I've not been using liquid cooling lately. So I don't need it.
CMHAFXBEVO-Mod01.jpg


I've recently been doing some home improvements and had spare carpet tiles left over. Been using them as covers for my work benches and desks so I figured, why not.
CMHAFXBEVO-Mod02.jpg


Now I can store things on top.
CMHAFXBEVO-Mod03.jpg


For those wondering, the change did nothing to my system temps. The case is so openly ventilated that the loss of the top venting had no impact.

've always been frustrated by the "hump" on the top of the case

I've seen it, still has the hump. I was thinking about an acrylic top, but knew I'd end up stacking stuff on top and acrylic isn't that strong unless it's really thick.
