    Switch over to to a video cart output box, this part:
    [​IMG]

    The front of the box rounded shape, for it has used aluminum furniture leg diameter of 40mm:

    Dismantled, prepared for cutting:

    By the way, how to mark a longitudinal line of cut (in a sense parallel to each other and the axis of the cylinder)? Found the way - put angle:

    A little hacksaw work:

    That’s all for a while.

    Combine Ceiling Turret: CPU cooler mod - update 22/09/12

    For some reasons have to replace CPU cooler by the low-profile Cooler Master Gemini II M4:
    [​IMG]

    Despite the fact that is the lowest Cooler Master cooler, I have to modify it.
    First, remove the fan, and then gave it a trapezoidal shape:
    [​IMG]

    In rotate position heat pipes run into the capacitors and the cooler base not in contact to processor
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Need to raise the cooler on the heat sink:
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Tinkering heat sink and heat pipes, a second attempt
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    To warm up the heat pipes cooler is placed in a container with boiling water on the gas stove

    Heat sink roasting

    Cooler assembled

    Modified CM Gemini II M4 tests on OCCT v.3.1.0:
    With stock fan - better then original!
    [​IMG]

    Passive –fail (even without load):
    [​IMG]

    With Titan TTC SC-04 blower

    That’s my choice:
