Default modding the wavemaster

pictures say more than words

but I think I gonna say something. The idea is to replace 3 noisy 80mm fans by 1 noisy and 1 silent 120mm fan.

The back is "unmodable" only if I remake tha backplate, but I don't have inough skills to do that. So I desided to replace the 2 front fans by one enermax on low speed and in some occasions at full speed. I also bought a revoltec 120 ledfan darkbleu. thats to replace the top fan. Because the standard mounting of the topfan causes much vibration I decided to replace it by a low speed fan which is placed better.

I also gonna replace the front leds by a 10cm ccfl but thats for later.

Now I allready have replaced the front fans It was much more work than I expected, but the result is .


link to full casemod (changed)

btw: notice that I also have made some "sfeerbeelden" of my room.

the ccfl cut out seems like a cool idea

today I did this . 2 switches for my ccfl's.

I made a scratch, but I fixed it with a small casebadge .

one of these days my dual ccfl 10cm kit will arrive and I can attach my ccfl's on the switches.

For the moment I quit because I need a fanguard. When I got that fanguard I can make the top cutout. Then I only need to finish some details like dustfilters etc and its finished.

BTW, I got some temps results.

before mod

CPU 48C 100% load 1.68V 2400Mhz
front 2x titan 80mm full speed
back 1x titan 80mm full speed
top 1x titan 80mm full speed.
sidepanel 1x revoltec 80mm full speed
CPU 1x enermax 92mm full speed

VERY noisy

After mod

CPU 45C 100% load 1.68V 2400Mhz
front 1x enermax 120mm 1450rpm (low speed)
back 1x titan 80mm low speed
top no fan atm
sidepanel 1x revoltec 80mm full speed (this fan is complete silent, so no need to control its speed)
CPU 1x enermax 92mm medium speed.

very silent I don't think I have to mod the motherboard tray to fit 2x80mm in it

edit: I only need to find some other place to put my hdd led

edit2: made the picture smaller

dual ccfl kit arrived today

whhen I removed the plastic stuff around the ccfl I saw that there was a small wire leading from one end of the ccfl to the other. I think it would give a nice effect if I would shorten it with my case, so I beter isolate it . Somebody has an idea how to do that? Just with normal tape? And how should I attach it in thet front thing. Just with glue?
