May 17th Update! Well, here we are again. Another update. I'm going to take this opportunity to state that I will be doing this particular log update with a James Mason voice. Let's get to it shall we? These Gelid fans look nice, but let's make them fit in a bit more with the theme than they already are... Let's peel off the stock center-cap stickers, here. And a nice little swipe with some rubbing alcohol will get rid of the rest of the gooey sticky crap. And presto....we have an official CheckMate case-fan! I'm not sure you've noticed yet, but the white is actually a psuedo-carbon fiber white instead of plain white. Just wanted to 'jazz' things up a bit, is all. Let's do something similar to the top rad fans... I think I'm leaving these plain, since you really won't see the tops hardly at all through the radgrill and mesh. Trust me. With the light from the fans themselves running up through the openings will make the area glow a bit more, and any black in the area will probably retract from that. I cut a custom rad gasket out of sound-deadening material like I always do to make the fans seal a bit more to the rads, cutting down on possible pressure leak as well as rattling operating noise. Doesn't have to be perfect, but enough to do the job right. And applied to the top of the rad... I needed to tap the fanholes with a 6-32 tap to make sure the threads are right and clear of debris. I laid out the fans on the spots they're going to be installed at... People have different methods for fan mounting on rads. I tend to use 3/8" length 6-32 socket-cap screws for open-cornered fans. It's just easy and I know the screws won't go into the rad's fins when I crank them down on the fan. Plus it's easy to stick the Allen wrench through the top of the fan to get at the socket-cap screw itself. After a couple mins, the fans are all installed. And a small test... ------------- Until the next update, I got nuthin'.
