The HDD coolers were a stroke of GENIUS. I'd have never thought of using them as coolers.
Yep, HDD blocks rocks!
Brilliant! Your brain must be huge to come up with something like this!
although, thinking about it, they coolers don;t have that large a contact surface area. Will it be enough?
I have no idea how much heat HDD produce, so I can't comment, I was just wandering
Well I have two hard drives stacked right above one another and each one has never hit higher than 23*C in a 19*C room.. So not much heat realistically.
That is a fine looking HDD cooler though
Wow! That's a great spot, FrooP! You definitely for coming up with that! +rep! Plus it looks great! If you needed more heat dissipation you could always add some recycled heat sinks and thermal paste (depending on your plans for mounting it!)
Brilliant!!! How are you going to mount the HDs in the case now? Will you make an aluminum cage for each drive and bolt the HDs in with the bottom holes?
The parts bin reservoir is cute.
And congrats on MOTM nomination.
Congrats on MOTM..
Your motherboard cover is awesome ........... Two Thumbs Up !!!
Man i love those hdd blocks awsome and how ghetto is that bin res!!! anyways your got my vote for sure!
WOW IM NOMINATED !!!!!!! yäy ^_^
so i started to design a box for the hdds
which will be fully vibration isolatet
but i still hadnt a clue where to actually put thesem so i designed a new floor which holds the hdds and goes under the actual case
ill have to add some windows to the front
cutting the aluminium is going to be "fun"
there are the hdds
i think ill add a cold cathode (blue) should create a neat lighting
ill try to build all this in the next two weeks
Congatulations on your MOTM nominee.. I voted for you.
For you hard drive placement could you mount them at the top of the case underneath where you DVD drive is..
You could mount one under where your drive extends to and one under the actual drive but attaching them using the screw holes on the underside of the drive..
i tried it everywhere, wont fit elsewhere than under the case
nice sketchup man and congrats for MOTM
Congrats on MOTM, I voted for you
Shame you can't fit the HDDs in the case, but that's life.
Make sure the bottom bit doesn't look too bulky and out-of-place
I love the fact that you're thinking outside the box... errr.... case on this one.
Congrats on the MOTM nomination!
I would NEVER have looked at that alum as an HDD cooler. Now I will.
You people and your skills wear me out.
Great work as always mate and excellent work. Congratz on your MOTM nomination. +rep
