the next challenge is adapting the mounts from the H100i and H70 to something I can use on the PS3. I've tried to just push down on top of the H70 and that causes the top to bow and then the pump will start rubbing. Then H100i, it's top is floating and the side bracket is what's holding it together, it also has a button on the top.. so I just can't push down on that top either...
so I'll have to figure out a way to recycle the existing brackets, I'm open to suggestions on this one. But the space is tight... this will be interesting.
also, I'll be cutting out the 3/4" base board the exact size I need, then plan on painting it black to match the PS3. Once done I plan on cutting out sheet metal to fill the back and top.

Initially I was thinking what is in yellow, to help I was going to add a 120mm fan on the top to blow up and hope that was enough of a vacuum to not cause a dead-head between the two fans. But since I've gotten to this part, I'm thinking of what I have in green instead...
what do you guys think?

Once I take time to add shrouding and paint it glossy black, it'll almost look like it belongs that way.
I played Grid 2 for about 45min, and while playing I noticed the main fan speed decrease as I played, system got quieter which made me feel accomplished. But a huge thing I noticed is the aluminum casing that surrounds the motherboard gets really hot. the chokes make contact with it through a thermal pad (I replaced all of them with new ones) and that's when I added the orange fan to blow on the MB.
not sure what I'll do about temp monitoring yet. I'm working 10-12hr days for the next 10 days. So she might sit like this for a bit.
Looks good Vin, I don't forsee any problems with it and should be happy with the setup. I haven't fooled with mine as of late, been doing too many other things and need to get those out of the way first.
ATM refetting the MSI board is the big project I have going on and I'm hoping the board will be OK after it's done, it was a FSB screamer compared to my other AM3 capable boards and that's why I'm working on it instead of just tossing it. Perfect for cranking on Sempy's and X2's.
austin86: Vinster its odd here, gutters can't go to a storm drain anymore but they can drain into the street right next to one lol. I think its more of a city property vs residents property thing, IDK all I know is the town asked us not to drain my gutters into it.

austin86: zila1 dirty sumps are the worst, my parents sump is always dirty and if its not the sump is the drain from the other low spot in the basement that goes to the sump thatch dirty, they can be a lot of work

Vinster: for storms, we can still drain to the storm drains. there is a storm culvert in my back yard. everything drains to it (except sewer obviously)

Vinster: son is clear so far, baby's day 2 went overall well.. no puking today. just had to keep her fever under control. shes a tough little cookie...
Aug 11, 2022 20:58:10 GMT -5
Vinster: Thanks, 1st day for me starting to feel normal (Day 7)... Partner is still really sick (her Day 10).. Wife can't taste or smell... (her day 4).. daughter feels normal now (her day 10) but she had it the lighest...

zila1: I just want to keep everything in tip top working condition and clean at all times. I can't stand a dirty sump pit.
Aug 11, 2022 18:54:49 GMT -5
zila1: You are very fortunate to have that system grandfathered in. They are very strict now as to how and where you can drain storm water. I had a similar situation at my old 100 year old home.

austin86: I'm amazed I not been told to remove it, even more amazed that it works. We were told we can no longer have the gutters drain into storm drain witch I get. Its a big home and it was becoming a problem with all the rain we get here.

austin86: In my case my home is on a slight incline and whoever built it rigged up a gravity fed system that feeds the water table into a storm drain in the street. I been told I can't do anything with the system as its grandfathered in and is not longer legal.

austin86: zila1 My home is right under the water table and does not have a sump. There are some ways a round it granted they are not always a option or all the great.

ShrimpBrime: Dogs are always crazy in their own yard. Mine are no different and why I need a fence so bad.
Aug 11, 2022 7:08:04 GMT -5
zila1: Now they can't see me anymore cause of the fence. Her dogs are crazy.
Aug 11, 2022 0:34:25 GMT -5
zila1: But she put her new fence right along side my damaged fence. We both inherited problems but watcha gonna do? At least those trees are gone and now she has a nice privacy fence there. I'm glad cause her dogs were trying to eat me.
Aug 11, 2022 0:33:44 GMT -5
zila1: First she had to have a bunch of trees cut down around the area she wanted the fence. They were all in my yard working because the trees were growing in my fence and she wanted them gone. Now my fence is a mess.

zila1: ShrimpBrime: it never ends Jon. Just when you think you've got it all done something else happens. Home ownership is real. The lady next door to me just had her fence installed. She told me she's been waiting all summer for it.

zila1: Vinster: Oh my gosh I am so sorry you have that in your family. I will keep good thoughts for you. Covid is just horrible.
Aug 11, 2022 0:26:20 GMT -5
Vinster: only person without it is my 15yr old boy. he's keeping to his room isolating from the house plague. 0 out of 10... would not recommend... even for the weight loss.
Aug 10, 2022 23:28:57 GMT -5
Vinster: having covid sucks... whole family has it.. it's been taking 1 member at a time... we've been fighting in for 2 weeks and today we lost again today, my 9 month old now has it... this shit is awful.
Aug 10, 2022 23:27:51 GMT -5
Vinster: is there a side walk for you to take care of? only bummer with a fence is having to mow the other side of it
Aug 10, 2022 23:25:20 GMT -5
ShrimpBrime: STILL WAITING on the fence people. first it was 4 to 6 weeks. We are on week 7, I called last week, said two more weeks, this coming week I'll be calling again on week 8 then. FML. I need the fence so bad. Having a corner lot, I cant' scratch my balls.
