Silent Gaming. Strix drives DirectCU technology further with 0dB-fan technology that lets you enjoy games like League of Legends and StarCraft in complete silence! And during heavy loading, Strix performs 30% cooler and 3X quieter than reference. Acclaimed DIGI+ VRM with 6 phase Super Alloy Power technology offer precise digital delivery and enhance overclocked headroom, compared to 6 phase power design in reference cards. Fractal Design’s new Define S Mid Tower Case is aimed at DIY liquid cooled PC enthusiasts looking for optimal space and value for their money. The Mod Zoo Staffers, Mosquito and Captain Curry Sauce give us a tour of the Define S and it’s variety of options for liquid loop layouts. $79.99 Retail for Non-Window version. $89.99 Retail for Window version. Mnpctech is modifying the Define S from the video review for Fractal Design's Party Event at 2015 Computex. Mnpctech will be installing a custom liquid cooled gaming system for Fractal Design to give away after their event. All of the stages of this project will be documented on this webpage, so Bookmark it and check back often for updates! We're starting out with a Do-It-Yourself guide to modifying Fractal-Design Define S case bezel for additional airflow Supplies & Tools Needed for this Case Mod: 1. 3M Scotch 233+ Green Professional Masking Tape, http://mnpctech.com/case-mods-gaming-pc-liquid-modding-custom-computer-mnpctech-overclock-cooling-fan-grills/3m-scotch-233-performance-green-masking-tape-roll.html 2. 12" Measuring Square and Pen or Pencil 3. Dremel or Rotary Tool with Reinforced Cutting Wheels, http://mnpctech.com/pc-mod-tools/cutting-wheels.html 4. Jigsaw with 18 TPI or higher Bi-Metal cutting blade 5. Hand File 6. Medium Grit Sandpaper or 3M Red Scotchbrite pads, http://mnpctech.com/case-mods-gaming-pc-liquid-modding-custom-computer-mnpctech-overclock-cooling-fan-grills/3m-scotchbrite-pads-sanding-buff-scuff-scotch/3m-scotchbrite-pads-en.html 7. One sheet of Mnpctech 24" x 12" Round Modder's Mesh Sheet, http://mnpctech.com/case-mods-gaming-pc-liquid-modding-custom-computer-mnpctech-overclock-cooling-fan-grills/modders-mesh-perforated-aluminum-steel-honeycomb-grill-intake-front-fan-slotted-diamond-round-hex 8. 3M ScotchWeld DP-190 Two Part Epoxy with Applicator Tip 9. Wire Clip or Tin Snip (Optional) Fractal Design's Define S chassis allows you to mount three 120mm or two 140mm cooling fans directly behind the bezel. This feature allows more interior space for larger radiators or push-pull fan configurations. The bezel's ventilated sides provide sufficient airflow for the factory default fan locations configurations. Opening the front of the bezel will improve airflow even more. The Define S bezel is factory molded from ABS plastic, which is very durable and resilient to cracking. Removing a majority of the face plate didn't effect overall rigidity. The backside of the bezel shows it's simplicity in design. The first step is to cover the bezel with 3M Scotch 233+ Masking tape. This allows you to write measurements onto the bezel and protects it from being scratched by the Jigsaw. Measure and mark off the portion of material you wish to remove. This cut-out will have 1" bordered frame of material remaining. Put on your Safety Glasses and use Rotary Tool with cutting wheel to make incision cuts in each corner. This will allow you to use a Jigsaw to make the long straight cuts efficiently. Use Jigsaw with 18 TPI or higher Bi-Metal cutting blade to make the long cuts as straight as possible. After finishing all of the cuts with the jigsaw, use a hand file and medium grit sand paper to clean and fix all of the edges. Inspecting progress before moving onto the next stage. These are two of the multiple mounting pegs on the backside of the bezel. We've chosen to remove the inner facing base support of each peg with a Wire cutter, so the mesh can be cut as rectangular piece. This step isn't required if you cut the Modder's Mesh sheet to fit around each mounting peg. Use medium sand paper to smooth over the surface after cutting the one side of each peg base. The Define S bezel's new intake grill will be cut from a 24" x 12" sheet, http://mnpctech.com/case-mods-gaming-pc-liquid-modding-custom-computer-mnpctech-overclock-cooling-fan-grills/modders-mesh-perforated-aluminum-steel-honeycomb-grill-intake-front-fan-slotted-diamond-round-hex This material is 22 gauge perforated plain steel. 5/32" holes 3/16" staggered centers. 33 holes per square inch. It's great for creating custom fan guards, grills, and cooling vents like this. It does need to be painted or clear coated otherwise it is a bare steel and will oxidize over time. The mesh grill will be attached with 3M Scotch Weld DP-190 two part epoxy with mixture applicator attachment. Place bezel on it's face. Apply the epoxy with it's applicator over the mesh overlapping the back of the bezel. It will ooze and sink into the individual holes of the mesh. Use c-clamps or spring loaded clamps to hold the mesh in position as it cures for 24 hours. Place some heavy objects on the mesh. This will prevent the mesh from bowing or warping as the DP-190 epoxy during it's 24 hour cure time. The bezel will be ready to handle 24 hours after the epoxied mesh has cured. People have requested PETG tubing in 12" & 24" length tubes and to be individually wrapped $1.99 per 12" long tube, http://mnpctech.com/pc-computer-alphacool-ek-bitspower-hardwarelabs-heatkiller-liquid-cooling/petg-tube/24-mnpctech-petg-1-2-od-x-3-8-id-clear-rigid-hard-line-pc-liquid-tube-clone.html $3.98 for 24" long tube, http://mnpctech.com/pc-computer-alphacool-ek-bitspower-hardwarelabs-heatkiller-liquid-cooling/petg-tube/ Mnpctech offers 1/2" OD x 3/8" ID PETG clear tube for Custom PC liquid cooling loops offers the same clear quality as standard Acrylic with an excellent impact strength and easy bend-ability. Mnpctech's PETG Clear Tubing works with these 1/2" hard line compression fittings that include, Monsoon Free Center Hardline Fitting - 3/8" ID x 1/2" OD Monsoon Chain Gun Hardline Fitting - 3/8" ID x 1/2" OD Primochill Ghost Hardline Fitting - 3/8" ID x 1/2" OD Primochill Revolver Hardline Fitting - 3/8" ID x 1/2" OD
Our Mod Zoo Munky Laboratories are always experimenting and sharing new discoveries. Manufacturers are recognizing that The Mod Zoo is a very influential source for developing new products. Last week ago we showed you how to thread 3/4" OD acrylic tubing to make your own loop. XSPC contacted us to mention our idea of longer male-to-male fittings had been shared with their engineers for possible production. Primochill is another manufacturer that follows our experiments. They recently started offering PETG tubing because of our video guide to PETG. This week Captain CS and Mosquito receive the first retail samples of Monsoon’s new “Economy” hardline fittings. They also share Bitspower’s new “Enhance” fittings and guide you through steps in gluing the optional collar on Monsoon’s “Free center” fittings. A lot of you have expressed concern about how safe this method is, watch their video and find out!
