OMG that fan grill looks frikking awesome
keep up the good work man
what mr_carl said ...........
Yip have to agree with those guys lol
Now that-- is bad-ass. Sweet fangrill, Cheapskate. You're back to stylin' with that new rotary table!
you may have wasted alot of material for those standoff, but they are totally worth it. i agree with all the guys above. just hope that fan grill doesnt drive you batter after a while. be a shame to see it have to go.
Fortunately it will be inside the case, so when I put the side back on it shouldn't be too noisy.
finally a case spezific update
that fan grill is really sexy or should i say pure porn
It looks like it took a lot of work, that's my style Great job Cheap
That's what I'm talkin about. Rotary table put to great use
That fan grille looks terrific cheapskate, and now I know
what a rotary table is/does.
RESTECTP.... JUST LIKE ALI G WOULD SAY WITH HIS HEART.
looks crisp as allways.
Are you gunna try to fix the whoosh? It would suck if a system that has this much time and effort invested in it would have to stand on the ground because of the noise...
Thanks everyone! After being quiet for so long it feels weird to get this much feedback again.
@Xtrafresh - I think it will be OK. When I was testing it I put the ring right up against the fan. The rings will be mounted much further away from the fan. The case walls block a lot of the fan noise too.
@brinkz0r - It was really very easy. -A lot of 'turn handle, pull knob.' Getting set up and finding the center point was the hard part.
Edit: -yes, another loaded statement ^
If the fan's too loud, you're too old.
or something like that
I dunno... if the fan's too loud, be happy you don't need hearing aids yet? heheh
That's a way cool grill, Cheapskate! Thanks for introducing this girl to the awesome ways of power tools.
to see if its centered i love to use a tool like so:
@Jhanlon303 - You have obviously never had one of those 3-bladed 80mm delta fans.
@Scirocco - Thanks! (notices 'nother loaded statement.)
@Teyber - Just what I need to get within .0001" accuracy on a rough pencil line.
I have decided the wire snarl around the dvd drive is too much to rework. I will make a coverplate to hide my shame instead.
Nice fan grill.
I don't think any other fan could be louder then the one I use to have on my video card. Sapphire X800 GTO Fireblade. Always sounded like there was a rock or someone trying to stick a finger in it wile on low speed. Now I am running a Gigabyte Cyclops and can't even hear it run.
The deltas are pretty freaky. There were 2 of them in a server unit a friend had. I remember thinking they were at the same db level as a gas weed eater.
