Yes. 3/8" ID 1/2" OD. Takes a lot of work but I think it was worth it. I'll never have to deal w/ plasicizier issues ever again.

Painted some of the old silver trim pieces today. I accidently bought semi-gloss instead of flat but it still turned out ok. The insert w/ the power button was done in plasti-dip first to give it the texture.





Not planning on using the other 2 front usb, audio, mic, firewire so I'm going to attempt to bondo it.

Well it seems the DDC-1T is outrageously loud and sounds even worse when slowed down. So I'm going to see if it sounds any better with one of these.




Powered on the T-Balancer MiniNG for the first time ever today. Works pretty decent in manual mode. I have found that GTs sound awful w/ a PWM signal, horrible motor noise. But in analog mode they sound awesome @ 5-7V.

Interesting. How does it sound now? Is it any quieter?

Finished the swap just now. It is kind of difficult to do for a n00b but it worked.

Now @ 12V it is about 23% more power. But the great thing is now I can slow the pump down and it sounds much better. Should be quiet enough to use in my living room.

Couple of WIP pics.

Not sure it is quiet enough now that I got the pump back in the case. Think I am going to have to find a solution to run an MCP35x. Except I can't control the pump in Linux very easily.
