It's the start of a new year, and since it's MY section I figure I can chop the massive GG thread up into more manageable bits. (and I haven't had a chance to sort through the 1000 + pics and stuff.) -When we last left our hero, he was fighting Ming's atomic robots- Wait... No, I was mounting a shroud on the side of the recently RMA'd power supply. Here I've removed the label so I'd have a nice indented spot for... wait for it... velcro. A great way to remove tape residue is with some naphtha on toilet paper - if you don't smoke. -POW! Real quick, and the paint is intact. :D/> -Currently, I'm making little holes so I can sneak wires into the motherboard cover. -Before I can cover the motherboard, I need to make a little room for one... Time to tame the octopus. -Some idiot didn't rotate his pictures. Here I've cut unwanted wires, and have marked the wires I want with what I want them for. -First, I sure didn't need a foot of cable for each drive. A little black paint takes care of any exposed red or yellow. -Now to cannibalize the low speed cables that came with the Noctua fans. To get those pesky male pins out, jam a paperclip in the hook side of the connector well. Don't so this with a live connector, of course, you have to lick those first. I had a Maalox moment for a bit when I noticed the PCI connectors were wire coded like there were 2 rails. Two cords had silver/yellow, two were normal. It hasn't burst into flames yet, so I guess all is well. I used the extra PCI wires to save space. I didn't need any 5 volt wires, after all. -I saved a few of the tach wires. -No real speed control, though.. just a, "why, yes. You do have a fan." -Looks fine to me. This was, what... a week after RMA? That'll bite me in the ass later. The PSU in Bloo tanked already too. -Ooh Yeah, a slim,sexy, two-wire molex connector for the pump. Guess where that came from. While buying shrink wrap, I made an impulse buy to check out something Brother Mach taught us... Yep. 1/4" lamp fittings ARE compatible with G1/4 fittings. :D/> If you can get them in solid brass it means that everything you need to make a badass metal reservoir can be found at the hardware store. I'd like to thank my sponsors here for all their support. :D/> RIP
