  2. Tuf-est Love G5 Mod

    The fans are good. The ones on the front are silence edition and are very quiet. The ones attached to my radiator are performance edition but are pretty quiet with my fan controllers. I mostly got them for the color first performance second to be honest and they were not cheap 30 dollars for a 2 pack. Takes a lot of time and effort to finish a g5 mod to make it look good inside. I have seen a lot of poorly done g5 mods in my time because people go cheap or rush. I have hundreds of hours invested in the modding and installation of this computer. It is ok to step away and go back Regards Ricky Thank you for your comments. I bout the Cinema Display off craigslist for 400 a year ago and I love love love it. Works perfect with my 6870 mini display port or 4000hd via DisplayPort adapter thingy. I do prefer streaming my blu Ray material to my 1080p tv tho sorry for rambling Regards Ricky
  3. Tuf-est Love G5 Mod

    Tuf-est Love In this post I will be showing you the different stages of my G5 Mod. You will also be able to see how I have evolved as a modder. The reason It took me so long to come to my final result with my mod because I was never satisfied.

My first mod Rickyreall84 Uglllllyyyyy Tuf Love Mod Still Ugly Tuffer Love Mod Better….but bulky and full of metal Now Tuf-est Love Tuf-est Love Now thats better!! I switched to the Antec Kuhler h20 620 because the pump on the h60 corsair was to loud and I didn't like the hoses. I also added a 40mm Fractal fan silent addition because the sabertooth fan that came with the board was whinny and loud. I added 2 120mm corsair vaccum fans for push pull. My average temps are 28c-30c over clocked to 4.22. I am also working on painting my kingston memory heat sinks white to go along with my theme. I used black velcro cut into triangles to mount the fans on the front if you look close you can see them (I used gorilla glue for better stickyness). I used the original black screws and standoffs to mount the plastic which fit perfectly behind the front panel. If you look on the bottom of the fans you will see a switch which controls my front panel audio on/off. If you want more info on that check out my tuf love mod it will go into it in detail. The original G5 HD caddy painted black. I had to cut the front of the caddy and remount the bracket on the top back more to push the caddy forward to place the motherboard behind it. The caddy is mounted with the original screws. The fractal 80mm fan was mounted using cut strips of black velcro (Gorilla Glue!!). I like the overall look of the fan and I basically bout it because it looked cool cause my ssds do not get hot, but if I plan on switching them out it might come in handy. The XFX Radeon 6870 has a new fan that I mounted on the heatsink with (gorilla Glue). The fan is from a PCI slot fan that i took apart. The sata cables fit nicely behind the caddy and the Silvertone data power stripe is mounted on the top of the case to hide it (Velcro, Gorilla Glue) All the wires and nzxt extensions are hiding behind the black plastic. I used ersterhernd mod for the reference. I wire tied the 6pin extensions to the video card. I made a custom back panel for my Tuffer Love mod so i kept it. It was hard to fit the 120mm fan between the motherboard and case . I drilled out all of the original holes and put in the allen hex screws. Front I used the original plastic dust thingy and modified it to fit my video card. I also used clear plastic to make the top panel to match. The bottom of the plastic is lined with black sprinkler hose cut with a razor to make it flush. I took apart the dvd drive and painted the shell black to match my color theme. I also painted the bottom plate black to match which you can't see in this picture. Final Picture No Comments Thanks for looking!!! Comments would be awesome and I will update with my heatsink project when it is finished Updated Photos: Painted Memory
  4. Asus Z77 Sabertooth Build 10.9

    sorry to bump into your guys conversation but i noticed you have sleep automatic wake issues. I read around a lot of forms and how made mine sleep was disable PPL overages in the AI tweaking in the bios. I hope that helps.
