  1. c700p Front Panel

    I agree, I am against closed front panels, but I think is possible to detach and remove the front panel of the C700P
  2. how to install multiple case fan??

    Hi, the abilities of the airflow to cool down the components inside the PC case depends on two airflow properties which are: the speed of the airflow and the temperature of the airflow. If you have no idea how to properly and efficiently develop airflow inside your PC case, then you can install fans everywhere inside your case, install fans on the front, back, top, bottom and also on the left and right side panels. This way you can develop random airflow moving in a variety of directions inside your case at lower speed. Another method which I prefer is to try to allow All the intake airflow to come inside the case (with the help of fans) through a single intake and allow to escape or exhaust outside the case in the opposite side of this intake in a straight line (without 90 degrees deviations), this method offer the advantage of reduced amount of fans and the ability to control at will the specific single airflow speed inside the case, below I add the photo as example and a website link with more detailed explanation about this subject .....http://www.arx-group.com/airflow1.html
  3. Centurion CM590. Fully Ascendant Airflow

    Hi, today arrived here the large cheap 2mm thick thermal pads to install in between the large heat-sink and the case, now I need to cut to size, below some photos, thanks for watching,
  4. Hello, I always wanted a case with full vertical airflow and the Silverstone Fortress FT02 have basically such sort of airflow but the I/O connectors of that case are at the top, and I wanted the I/O connectors to be closer to the bottom, this is the reason I took the Cooler-master Centurion CM590 and rotated 90 degrees the whole case to get the I/O connectors at the bottom. The other important modification was the ventilation inside the PSU to follow the same ascendant airflow of the case itself. To achieve that I just turned upside down the San-Ace 80x15mm fan of my PSU, finally I want to explain that the aim of this modification is to get a case featuring low back-pressure "Impedance" and therefore nearly all grills, the mesh and the filters have been removed to achieve the maximum available airflow speed, below I attached some photos. http://www.arx-group.com/airflow1.html http://www.electronics-cooling.com/2003/05/how-much-heat-can-be-extracted-from-a-heat-sink/ http://www.em.avnet.com/en-us/design/technical-articles/Pages/Articles/Managing-Thermal-Dissipation-Tradeoffs-and-Constraints.aspx Case: Centurion CM590 MB: EVGA X79 FTW CPU: 4820K GPU: Galaxy GTX770 RAM/DIMM: Crucial VLP 2X8Gb Ballistix DDR3-1600-1.35V PSU: Power & Cooling Silencer 910W HHD: HGST 2.5" Z7K500 Travel-star 7mm Case fans: Noise-blocker PK3.

    Hi, so far one way I was thinking to transfer some heat from the motherboard to the large heat sink is by using a flat copper sheet (0.5mm thick) from below the motherboard and reaching the underside of the large heat-sink, obviously I need to be very carefully to avoid the underside of the mobo to touch such copper sheet, I dont know how much heat will be able to move towards the heat-sink, but I need carefully to try. Another way to transfer the heat can be by connecting such copper sheet directly from the CPU and after some bending reach the underside of the large heatsink, below some photos of the first idea, thanks for watching
  6. Cooler Master T4

    A while ago I chopped the alleged heat-pipes of a Thermaltake CPU cooler and later also I chopped the heat-pipes of a Thermalright VGA cooler, both were completely Dry inside, the CPU cooler manufacturers use hollow pipes to reduce cost (less copper), reduce weight and because is much much easier to bend hollow pipes instead solid copper rods which are much harder to bend, I plan to chop the end of the heat-piped of one of my CPU coolers which I have two identical here at home to allow some fresh air continuously penetrate the pipes, later I can easy compare the results of both identical coolers. In the link provided below also other people have chopped the pipes of their coolers to find completely dry, no evidence of any liquid......https://forums.anandtech.com/threads/dumb-yet-technical-question-heatpipes.2217753/page-3
  7. new cooler for GX 750w

    If the power supply release smoke, you need RMA and send back where you bought it or may be send to Coolermaster
  8. Centurion CM590. Fully Ascendant Airflow

    Hi, I am going to try to connect this large heat sink 22x146x600mm (which is attached to the case using a thermal pad) to the motherboard or direct to the processor using a flat copper sheet, as a mean to connect both and transfer some heat, obviously if connected to the motherboard I need to be very careful to avoid short circuit to ground, below some photos. I dont know and also I am not sure how much heat I will be able to transfer to this large heat sink using this method, but is just a matter to try and test the results, thanks for watching

    Hi, the newest brackets are ready punched on 2mm hard stainless steel, new hopefully this weekend I can drill holes for the new brackets on the upgraded bigger heatsinks, thanks for watching
  11. How to combine 2 rails of +12V port?

    Perhaps the separate rails are made in purpose to limit (over current protection) the current (Amps) which go through the wires, check the link ....http://www.overclock.net/t/1485311/can-i-bridge-or-combine-12v-rails-in-an-antec-500w-power-supply

  13. Velocidad de ventilador

    No entiendo la pregunta o cual es el problema, si es que el ventilador hace mucho ruido porque llega a maxima velocidad debido al procesador que se te calienta mucho, tal vez si tienes dinero disponible, podrias cambiar el enfriador tx3i con uno mas grande con ventiladoir de 120 o 140mm

    Hi, I test this modified CPU cooler in a sort of open test bench outside the case, adding the Scythe Mugen 3 attached to the CPU back plate and with with a 2mm thermal blue pad in between, so far the results are not quite special, room temperature about 26 degrees Celsius, and the CPU was reaching 40 degrees at idle even with such extra CPU cooler attached to the back plate. The next step I plan to increase a bit the cooling performance is to increase the size of the extra heat sink at the base of the front CPU cooler from 100x40x20mm to 100x60x25mm, below are shown some photos, thanks for watching

    Hi, this weekend I drilled and tap the holes to attach the brackets for the CPU secondary heat sink, may be I overkill using four screws for each bracket, some photos below, thanks for watching
  17. Old Hyper 212 to 1151 mount

    The retention bracket for the original Hyper 212 cooler was made just for LGA775, the mounting hole distance for LGA1151/1150/1155/1156, are all the same which is 75x75MM, therefore I think the new retention bracket and back plate you got must be OK

    Hi, finally the metal work factory has made me the new modified brackets for the CPU cooler, I just need to make some holes on the aluminium heat sink for the screws, some photos below, thanks for watching
  19. CM 690 iii top 200mm fan

    Hi, I think there are variety of ways to can attach the fan to the case, I usually tap the mounting holes of the fan to use 5mm nylon screws, but in this case may be you can use M4 nut and M4 screws, inserting the screws from outside or from inside if there is no space for the head of the screws from outside the case, another way is choose sort of elastic silicon clips which dont require any screws or nuts, is up to you to choose
  20. Can you help me identify this case?

    I think is the GLADIATOR 600 , you can check the link ....http://www.cmstore.eu/spare-parts/gladiator-600-front-panel/
  21. PWM fans worth it?

    I completely agree, three pins fans are better than two pins fans and four pins PWM fans are better than fans with just three pins,

    Hi there, today at the metal work factory we finally bend the latest revision of the motherboard tray and squeeze together the self clinching flush nuts for the ATX standoffs, later after I drill some holes for the screws, I still need to bring the various case components for the electrostatic powder coating
  24. Centurion CM590. Fully Ascendant Airflow

    Hi there, Yesterday I bring home the new revision of the case feet made of Stainless-steel 3mm thick, hopefully this weekend I can drill the holes for the screws, I attach below some photos for comparison between the new and the previous design of the feet which were made of normal mild steel 3mm thick
  25. Centurion CM590. Fully Ascendant Airflow

    Hi there, a bit of time available now to do some case modifications, I order the metal work factory to modify again a bit the case feet and also the cutout of the motherboard tray, the latest case feet will be made with Stainless-Steel 3mm (bullet-proof) thick, which is harder and stronger than usual mild steel, I reduced the height of the case feet by 20mm = 2cm, the original design was 100mm height, therefore now the whole case will be above the floor by just 80mm, I think this is still enough and not too close to the floor to hinder the airflow to enter the case through the case bottom, below some photos of bending/fold process at the metal factory
