I finished the mod up about two weeks ago. I dont really have time for another guide...maybe down the road. Here is the run down.
Schythe Fan/temp controller LCD covered in carbon Replaced front fan with 120mm with Sharkoon w/isolators Added side fan exhaust (Sharkoon again) with internal ducting to cool pci bay More sound control padding Silverstone psu quiet duct Updated memory to 2GB New custom case badge Custom decal and lettering on side of case Slim usb hub w/carbon
Now the case is below noise floor (sound in room) from a distance of one meter. Temps went up a tad to 45 C running a few apps and one set of Folding@home with a room temp of 72 F. Sorry for the temp read switch but I only read C and my room temp monitor is in F.
Is it done now? Dunno. I am sure there will be something else to do. Check out some pics
