Thanks! It has given my ears/head many hours of comfort hehe
what model headset is the mic from? think I want to do something like that too.
Don't remember which model. I just went to MSY and got the cheapest USB headset from them that had a rotatable mic. Then removed the ear piece with my dremel and use hot melt glue to attach it.
Oh Maaaaaate... Your a dead set fuck*ing legend Respect!
That is what I need. My wife is going to LUUUUUVVVE this in the study wall! I have to try this. Here's hoping she doesn't notice for a few months

Even with the AC on in my one-bed flat, my gaming corner was still the warmest place in the house.
This helps a lot, even though it's probably making the AC work a bit harder.
Helps to exhaust some heat from the AV rack in front of the window too
(which doesn't help loop temps, but when ambient is a nice 23C it doesn't matter much).
Nice job RyoSaeba with the 200 fan.
Does it exhaust right through the wall to outside via a duct, or just into the cavity?
Love the headset hack job too... almost criminal to do that to those nice ATs though!
EDIT: Just realised that the thread has hit fifty pages, nice job dudes.
Some truly wack ghetto mods in here fo shiz.
Thanks to everyone that has contributed, this has to be one of the best OCAU threads thanks to your mad style.
Keep em coming!
Btw mine is a double brick wall that I did it on. So the hot air vent into the cavity. There's also a mesh behind the grill to stop things from crawling back in.
That's a 20cm fan and held to the grill with velcro. The black strips you see are the velcro tapes. So I can remove the fan if i want to or change it at will.
Thanks mate hehe. The AT were only $120 delivered, so it was actually cheaper than the Sennheisers lol. Beside, it's hot glue, I can pry it off later when I don't need it anymore and it will be like nothing has happened.
I use poly to vent a cupboard pc. There is a notch behiond it to run cables to the top (roof) of the cupboard for modem, sub and spare network cable.
I have a vent lower down with a fan blowing in to pressurise the cupboard and push the air out with the PSU fan blowing out where the pipe is fitted right at the back. Work well too, pc used to get real hot, now same as sitting out of the cupboard.
Cables haven't been put away as I just removed a few extra bits and swapped speakers.
Well this is an old one, but I didn't have any DVD drives handy and I needed one so I um.. might have sticky taped a slimline drive into my server
(yes, that is a make shift "bay cover" made from more tape)
Not as ghetto as some of the stuff I've seen in this thread though
Not so ghetto but i hacked my h80 apart thinking it didnt work any longer killing the pump, scored a h50 pump off ASASN, chopped up some excess boost lines from the 15, with a nice bottle of listerine, probably 40% listerine 60% tap water works great
now THATS ghetto
quality first non trading post
Shit that's sweat. Now I know where I can get a cheap pump/cpu block. Time to W/C
Haha didnt think i was ghetto enough to post anywhere ;p
'Kills bacteria that cause bad loops'
is that on the delidded CPU in your sig too?
also, why 3 sticks of RAM?
donated 1 stick and gfx card to housemate so we can bf3
Edit: And yes this is a delidded 3770k..
This is how i fail
My soldering iron/solder/flux is packed away so until then, this is how I charge my headphones.
Now this has sadly beaten you.... I for sure wouldn't do it into my main loop. I would put a heat exchanger on my loop if I ever wanted to do that lol
No pics unfortunately as phone was too flat.
Retainer clips on the HSF that I bought snapped (stupid cheap plastic), so I was left with this hefty cooler and no screw/bolts/etc to secure it to the motherboard.
10 minutes and 8 cable ties later, she is all secured!
Fed the tail of the cable tie through the mounting plate then through the board, and used the head of another cable tie to pull it tight.
Seems to be working fine so far... it is only temporary, going to go get something more suitable in the next couple of days, probably just an off-the-shelf watercooling kit.
Thats a tried and tested solution, should last you years!
But we do need pics.
I've held coolers on with cable ties too. It works surprisingly well.
