It's finally time to get this started! REFRACTION Welcome one and all to my new project, and my first scratch build. If any of you read my last log, you'll understand the common criticisms. So I am now introducing the KidMod log promise: 1) Good photography 2) Regular updates (if feasible) 3) Replies to every comment 4) Longer and much better descriptions Enough with that, I should explain the concept of the mod. We are pulling a motherboard tray from an old case and making something similar to a test bench, it won't be open air, but it will have direct airflow, a perspex roof and plenty of brushed alu! As for painting, everything will be black and the panels will have blue and white accents similar to the logo. Anyway, the first update comes to me with the help of scan, the first thing I will be working on is the intakes, which will go to the right of the motherboard tray. Oooeh! Delivery! Address not for your eyes. I can never get these things open! Finally! Too many layers of bubblewrap! The first thing out was the box from XSPC, these are the mounts for the rad grill: Unboxed with accessories: The next box out was from phobya, with their fantastic 360mm hexx rad grill. This thing is pure sex! Testing with a fan: Then it was time to put them together, the regular screws were too small, which means I had to dig in to my oversized collection : I can screw it together by myself, I need help from Doctor Computer! That's better: Done! Then I put my fan screws in, ready for my next order: Speaking of fans, I also began work on the one's I have already: Removed and ready to clean, don't they look good? If you're wondering why I have dismantled the frame, Waynio has prepared some copper fan frames for me, the same as the ones in his Stealthlow mod. I'm the process of removing the other: SNAP! But now, I have a really cool looking exhaust that shares it's looks with the be quiet silent wings fan: Ballocks! Last but not least for today, a comparison of the fans: Well, that's all for today, not a bad start? My next update will be sunday when we will have our tray and will be spraying and cutting! See you then!
