    :jawdrop: fantastic

    Looking at your pics it seems you used something like "fluid steel" (a glue) to connect pieces.
    The only thing that didn't make me crazy are the two small fans....i think one slim fan like scythe slip stream could be better in term of noise ;)

    I' am curious to see the case :dremel:

    Dot_Kappa, thanks!
    I use only solder iron 100W and 60% solder. (60%Pb/40%Sn) Glue is s***.

    PSU is very quiet. ;)
    Stock fan 0.18A, new 0.17Ax2. It work at 1/4 max power.(PSU have automatic control)

    I'am too.:D

    :D

    The scythe fan is a 3 pin one, like yours.... red ,black, and yellow wire.
    You need to connect only red and black to the voltage regulator as you have already done.
    Check if the power consumption of the scythe is higher or lower than the original fan in order to prevent the burning of your controller ;)
    The little green component in the photo is the sensor of the regulator.....
