    My hyperx oc'd to 2133 finally got unstable (started at 1.65 and kept lowering volts all the way to 1.51) I'll just bump her back up to 1.575, seemed to pass 99% of all tests and its in the spec range.

    I have some samsung 30nm greens, 2 matched pairs and an odd, pm if interested. Stuff all performs identically but it just doesn't like my motherboard. I run them at 1.4v 2133 in my Asrock (sandy doesn't go higher for some reason) but they don't like running 4x4 on gigabyte.

    Its looking good bro. Nice job.


    Just ordered an SSD (Seagate 600) and I'll probably make an acrylic 2.5 to 3.5 spacer so my Cosmos can fit it in the drive cage. Don't like using velcro unless I have to. I'll get some pics in here when it comes. Cosmos is getting a major update:
    3x120mm rad grill up top and on bottom (overlapping with the PSU mount I figure) and a 2x120mm rad grill on the drive cage interior. Lets get some flow in this thing. I hate having a 5.25 bay intake fan, ugly.

    I love to see people keeping old hardware instead of sending to waste.

    I have many old computers here but I use mainly the one under my avatar. Since I use only for internet surfing I have computers for couple of years until they stop the updates of Windows 7 pro.

    Real men don't ask themselves what do real men do. They know that real men do exactly what they are doing at that moment. In this instance real men write forum posts :laugh:

    Heres the first coat of the stain
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Might be kinda blotchy but its pine so I'll probably just keep staining it darker and darker. Its not too bad actually and adds a nice rustic look to a high tech steambox!

    Heres the other project, adding more fans to my Cosmos 1000 to bring it into the 10's decade
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    These are Phobya Hex Grills, should add a total of two fans to the bottom between the power supply and the cages instead of just the single inside that white box, probably a 120mm cougar fan on the upper drive cage outside and the lower will be a cougar on the inside of the HD cage.

    I'll have to disassemble this thing some more first before I'll get it all mounted and I may have to trim the metal down a bit. The goal for the two 360 grills will be more airflow to my videocard and more radiator options. The 360 grill on the bottom is just so the power supply could be run the stock way or flipped like it is now. I will be removing the bottom of the case so the stupid stock intake ventilation system will be gone, replaced with just a simple silverstone filter and rad grill and a fan on top on the inside of the case with a mesh finger guard. I am hoping the two fans will squeeze nicely between the PSU and the HD cages.

    The top I will probably only run two fans on it but I want the option of a larger radiator in the future or going with a 3rd fan. I'd have to modify the louver design if I went with 3 fans though. It made sense to go with 360's over 240's for the top and bottom just for the expandability of options. The 240 will help cool the HDDs for sure!

    Looks good... even better if u can mount an SSD at the empty space near the intake fans.. my 2 cents..

    Yes true but neither can exploit in an intelligent way you choose to have a good ventilation (which in this chassis is very bad) or fill it with hard disk.

    A 140mm fan as intake is there for ventilation.



    yeah nice idea I thought before but the SSD is located in the middle of the 5x 5.25 bays there is a fan controller too.

    Yes they are the Noiseblocker 1500 RPM PWM attached to the motherboard CPU FAN/CPU OPT FAN. They speed up slowly not the best for PWM fans. Sometimes you get error from BIOS

    Cut out the bottom and put in a 2x120mm horizontal rad grill to intake, then put taller feet on it. Especially since its on a wood floor in that pic, so the dust out shouldn't be bad with a set of Silverstone magnetic filters on the rad grill exterior. Once a week just vac off the bottom of the filter. Then you'd have plenty of airflow.
