    The antec truepower quattro is an IDENTICAL power supply to the EVGA one, you could just get that :)

    Three Kazemaster fan controllers turned up for the rad box so time to make a bezel to hold them.

    Just wish they had turned up earlier so i could have got them all mounted but ran out of time so one down, two to go and at least the weather is going to hold out all weekend so more to come over the next few days.

    I've got the exact same controller, it's a good bit of kit, apart from the bloody alarm if a fan is turned off/on.

    3 controllers what for??

    IF you are going to use 12 fans , an aquaero would have been the best solution, and there are other fan controllers that could have been used also , such a waste of space in the case and in my opinion many controllers in a case front gives an awfull look , anyway i like the project your building keep it up !

    This one might be a good choice as well. It allows 30W per channel which means you can control something around 70 :jawdrop:, 120mm fans.

    Oops, missed a couple of pictures out!

    I used my trusty Fret Saw with piercing 12 x 32tpi blades for the cut outs :)

    it's a generic Fret saw, Yaka.


    What are these carbon black fittings you speak of, coolmeister?

    Yeah, Matt's right, just a generic Fret saw though i've never used these tiny blades which seem to have a mind of their own so you got to be super careful especially on straight lines but give a great sense of satisfaction to know you made it yourself and not taken the easy option.

    I'm just checking with Bitspower to make sure i didn't over step the mark and will update on the Carbon Black fittings ASAP

    whoopsie :p

    A nice blade to use is a generic carbon coated one, intended for tiles. Makes really nice cuts with hardly any filing. Used it before on a few bits.

    WeeeHeeeeeeeeeeee:lol:

    Finished the bezel for the rad box which worked out good even though there is a few slight imperfection - fan controllers are just stuck in with Blu Tack for the time being and the whole thing still needs powder coated and painted but that's it pretty much done :)

    Coolmeister, chance of the measurements you used here? I'm building a new front panel for my pc, and this is how it'd look (minus 2 of the controllers)

    Got the exact same piece of kit (y)

    Looks epic with the bevel.
