Case: Free
Fan: $20
internals: $300
psu just to run the fan: $350
Result: f***ing loud

the fan ran at 32 amps, which had its own 750w enermax psu (not pictured)

case has 2 x 60mm rear fans, which spin at about 1750rpm. turning the radiator fan on over spun them to 4500rpm and reversed the front 80mm fan. infact putting it on a skateboard the computer would move forward slowly

also who could forget

Nice pipework on the 'Airbus' case. Time for a 787 mod too?

I've scraped the idea of using the dodgey fucking PCI-E riser cable and went full rambo on the x8 PCI-E slot.

Butane torch?

That some proper ghetto right there. Couldn't you have just taken the stupid plastic shroud off altogether though?

I reckon two Povo Points for this one!

To heat the scalpel to slice through it, besides to get through the plastic cover took a minute, to carefully cut the slot took 45minutes

Classic! Only one Povo Point though, cos they're such nice-looking cans.... unless you stole them
