    Thanks. Surprised you haven't seen it on Facebook lol. When I asked if anyone had found a way to go around that, some clown had the kindness to remind me these brackets are not to be installed on x3m fans because it is said in the manual.He even had the kindness to post a pic of the yellow sticker stating it haha. So I made this just for him! See how kind I am..

    Poor guy probably never had an good idea of his own lol... It's exactly why I asked... because the x3m are not built to install a bracket on them. But it doesn't mean no one had found a solution. So anyways, I've got suggested a couple solutions but none appealing to me. But when the person suggested the spacers, I remembered the fans came with nuts to be used with short screws and it became clear. And as you can see it worked hehe.
    Another idea that will be used in the future where I wont get any credit for it or not even a little thank you haha.
    Been seeing a couple of my ideas/designs being used lately without a single word from the person grrr... like the carbon fiber rads and PSU or the mod I did to mount the PSU horizontally in the TT Core P8. Even just a simple badge on a radiator placed on the side. Easy stuff, I know it's not big mods and doesn't need a big brain but still, when I take the idea of someone, I say thank you or mention it in my post. I don't take ideas of others often but it happens and I will always show my appreciation!

    Ok sorry, I had to whine a little. I feel better now!

      3 x XE 360 and a PE. All going in push/pull.
      If anyone need stuff 3d printed let me know. Can even have resin stuff printed now.

      Cleaned up everything properly since I'm changing for clear coolant... even the fittings one by one lol.. started yesterday... Just the cpu block left to do. Here's the gpu block looking like day one even after using Solid Azur Blue liquid. Two little stains but can't see em too much.

      • I finally tested out mayhem xtr 4nm out. I probably see improvement of 2degrees at most. Not sure its worth its price honestly.

            By the way, how much did you pay for that?

              Not cheap at all. Each bottle is about 37usd. The major cost though is shipping. Only Mayhem UK carries it and shipping not cheap. Modmymods has small stock and restricts you to 2 Bottles per order.

              I may have to order more but i am holding off long as possible.

                  Yeah, you order a lot from outside so you know what you are doing lol. Freaking customs are expenssive from UK. 37USD is not that bad but once you add the extras, each bottle become expensive. Deff not worth that price imo. Once webstores like MmM starts having good stock, it should become more of a solution. But still, two bottle per order is still decent. Most rig won't need that much. Not everyone run big loops like us haha. Any idea if Anatoly plans on getting them?

                    Just a couple more covers...
                    I have to paint the logos but I'm out of spray so gona have to do it by hand. Sadly, no white paint so I can't do touch-up either... Here's a couple tests I'm doing.. not sure if I'll keep them all white or paint like that...

                    Beside that, nothing much have moved except the 4 rads are installed. But I won't show it just yet because I still waiting on that XE radiator.. Afraid my friend might not keep his words and I'll be forced to buy one.. Will see... Giving him a little more time.

                      • Well, I guess I can let you guys in my little secret weapon!
                        Like mentioned before, I still need one more XE radiator and 12 X3M fans plus bunch of controllers but here's where I've got so far with the new design and upgrade..

                        Obviously, with the top radiator removed, I can't keep the side ones raised up like they were. Not cute on the left. Sadly, I was going to use one poet on the rear of the radiator but dropping it won't let me do it so I gota find another way...

                        So here's my little secret. If you can't figure what I'm doing, it will be more obvious on the pictures to come.

                        Cable management is going to be a real pain. Probably one of the hardest I ever have to do lol...

                          I've decided to not use fan covers on the back until I get them all and have all the X3M I need...

                          higher point of view... Build name is now "Projekt Bahamut 2.0" but I'm thinking I might need to change. So far it's either that or Projekt Megaflare, Projekt X, Generation X, Captain X and Factor X. Maybe some have other names idea?

                          My tests subjects. Trying my own mix of colors. I wanted a blue to go with the theme which is Bahamut/Final Fantasy. The blue is based on the colors we find in the Bahamut Megaflare attack.
                          I don't know, I might end up leaving them all white...

                          • Half way there with the cable management part!
                            But I got put everything on hold again... Had the great idea of testing the lighting stuff before co.plering and found out the led strip of my Formula bridge is dead... can't change it without removing the darn thing from the board...

                            There with half cables done..
