Short Intro

Actually, this project was started, or should I say, plans were drafted for this project bout 2months back. But things had taken a change, hence this new thread.
Old Thread

Not much physical work was being carried out though....
Was actually more on the planning and thinking, and experimenting.


Actual work started bout 2 weeks back, and now, seems to have taken shape for me to start posting!

posting when i'm hungry....dun mind

Sleeving Part 2





Sleeved Fan Controller wires
(those I need only)



3x Zalman F3 Sleeved




That's bout it for sleeving i guess.
50ft of 1/8 definitely not enough , could only sleeved what was essential. Probably will order some more if possible




*Some of the pics dun match, but they are the same, just messed around with the contrast for some *

Main Course--Hardware, Fan Controller






Scythe Kaze Q





Simple but well protected packaging.
Come's in a foam box, with the Controller wrapped in plastic





Simple Outlook





As always, I removed the Female Molex for less clutter, and sleeved only the fan cables I need.





Tested it, everything's working well.
I believe this can be DIY, but the time and skills needed, materials too, makes this SGD$22 FC worth to get.

Installed into my 3.5" Drive Bay




Image is intentionally soften, as the drive bay is yet to be ready.
