Cooling



Titans

For cooling this case, I bought some pretty fans. Titan´s 92 mm aluminum fans provided good looks, and of course they will not be run at the regular 12 volts, so noise should not be a problem.



Stuffin´ leds

The fans conviniently had suitable holes for adding leds, so I only had to solder the wires and stuff them in.



mmm.. pretty light



Getting there...

Here are the new components attached to the case. As you can see the case will be a tight fit. Wondering where the fans are going to go?



As there will be no additional fans for the CPU and the GPU, the casefans will blow air directly to the respective heatsinks. Partly for the tight fit and partly for looks the fans will be tilted a little. The fan blowing to the cpu will be attached to the motherboard´s cpu fan connector, thus enabling Amd´s cool and quiet fan controlling. The graphics card also had a temperature controlled fan so I connected the second fan to the graphics card´s onboard fan connector. Since the graphics card´s own fan was rated 0,36 A, and the titan only 0,15 A, replacing it should not cause problems.



Underneath

Wires for the leds and fans were glued to the inside of the plate to avoid clutter in the already tight case.



Handle

I built a retractable handle for easy carrying. It is constructed out of two bolts and three brass pipes. Inside the case there are two wide washers to keep the handle from coming out.
