Got a plan for securing those conduits? That much loose metal next to a powered up motherboard makes me a little fiddly.

Great question, I'll be using cable ties

There will be an MNU logo painted on this optical drive. Christopher likely traded something towards it, so he could view cd rom archived files from MNU perhaps?

Image

More rust effects occur..

The new 600W Cooler Master Silent PRO didn't look right in a POS computer, it was treated to "rust lovin" as well.

White with rust is cool.

This method can be combined with 4.5" flexible tubing to isolate cool airflow. Imagine one end of the tube attached to a 120mm cooling fan in front of your case.
The 4.5" Flexible tubing can be found at Mcmaster, http://www.mcmaster.com/#duct-hose/=4zltce or you can "try" the "Heating & Cooling" department at hardware or home improvement stores like Home Depot or Lowes.

Supplies & Tools:
120mm Modder's Mesh Round fan grill, http://www.mnpctech.com/120mm_Custom_FanGrill.html
4.5" fan duct, http://www.mnpctech.com/FanDuct.html
4, #10 x 5/8" fan screws, http://www.mnpctech.com/thumbscrew.html">#10 x 5/8" fan screws</a>
120mm cooling fan.
Paint pen or pencil.
Tin snips.
Wire cutter.

Using a paint pen to trace the duct onto the round mesh grill.

a small wire cutter and Tin snips used to cut the 4.5" opening in the 120mm Modder's Mesh Round fan grill
Image

You'll need to use the small wire cutter first, to make the initial cut before you can use the Tin Snips to cut the 4.5" hole.

Using Tin ship to cut the round mesh grill.

The result of you cutting should look like this.

120mm cooling fan. This fan has enclosed corners, you will need longer fan screws if you're mounting the fan onto something like a cpu cooler.

Well, you shouldn't have any airflow problems :lol:


Unless you're going to put a window in front of the canister. NOT a good thing if it gets knocked over. :o
