A detailed look at the power switch sleeving. All the wires that must show are sleeved with the carbon fiber.

GTX 470 with triple fans will handle the video. Of all the 470s reviewed, this one was cooler and quieter.
Hopefully one more will be added soon

Some of the pins on the back end of the middle sink had to be shortened a bit to make clearence.
The middle sink had clip hole extensions on the ends that were removed also.

Blue anodized thumb screws will secure all doors. Chrome allens will make door knobs. As you can see the
chrome allens have a shoulders. They only come on long screws, so these were cut to fit. I tapped the
aluminum so they screw in right up to the shoulder. Perfect little door knobs that work and look well.

I originaly had silver stainless thumb screws,but you can spot the blue ones easier for quick removal
They look better securing the doors in my opinion. They match the blue on the mb pretty well.

Here is a brand new named mod !!! Invented by me. Shown here first. It is called......The SPUTNIK MOD
Almost anyone can make it. It doesnt cost much. It doesnt take a very long time to install. It can be done on almost any large case fan.
The following pics will take you though the procedure. First, I took an RC plane nose cone. The one I used is screwed on to a base.
I then filled in the propeller holes with sheet aluminum and smoothed them over with plastic filler. They also make ones without holes,
but I wanted the biggest one possible to fit my grill.

A hole must be made in the grill slightly bigger than the cone. I painted my grill high gloss black metallic. Scroll down

The base was centered and epoxied to the fan. The cone was then marked in four evenly spaced places for the antenna holders.
Using a ring that fits about mid way down the cone really helps with the marks.

Ball point pen ends make (antenna holders) use the kind that taper that look like mini cones to go with the big cone.
Screw off ballpoint ends of pens and glue them on the marks. Make sure it clears the grill.
Use all plastic pens so the glue will stick better and be lighter than metal ends.
I also glued the clicker ends of the pens between the ballpoint ends (antenna holders) for added effect. Although hard to see in this photo
because I masked them to keep the chrome look,
in corresponding photos you will get a better look at the ballpoint ends.

Although not nessasary, I painted the frame flat black. Then masked the black off and painted the blades and cone
high gloss extra course silver with a splash of blue pearl to match the mother board.
