tough to say how much time i spent on it
sleeving has taken alot of time
last week one modular cable took over 2 hours to do and i think there is 14 more
24 pin was a long day
I have alot of custom modding planned in the next week or 2
and have a huge order arriving next week
is going to be 3 loops and I just might be able to achieve 44 fans installed
yeah its a little overkill lol

Rig of the year.....well that would be awesome

My System Specs

Default Heartbreak Ridge

Back to the Typhoon Modding
At the beginning of the project I did 16 GT Fans this way
Now I need 10 more
you peel back the sticker on the shroud

Then you see the tiny horseshoe clip holding the fan to housing

I tried to buy a proper spring clip tool but the smallest out there was too big for it
so i used 2 precision screwdrivers to undo the clip

out of the first 16 I lost 1 clip and broke 2

Note to self
dont have typhoons in a box with the heatgun cord behind it for sleeving
move the heatgun...typhoons hit the floor

HEARTBREAK RIDGE


Because they are made of a composite material they shatter

I quickly fiqured out I should have a massive magnet to help catch the jumping clips
and used a magnet tray to help and it worked great never lost any after that

Lol @ those IDC bottles. Seriously a good chuckle. Thankfully none of mine ever came frozen. However I doubt it would have any impact after it thaws. I don't suppose you know exactly how tall your case stands?
