HSF mod to ys-tech 120mm 131CFM!

i just finished it earlier today, made an adapter from the OCZ goliath to a 120mm fan. made it from the sheet metal of an old case. i just tin-sniped the one piece adapter and folded it to size.

temps are down, way down. plus its even quieter than the delta 50cfm fan that was on it.

load temp never goes above 104 F, and idles around 90 F.
also the case temp went WAY down to around +1 F of ambient, 69 F in my case.

any one intersted in seeing pics?

So the moment(leverage) of the big fan on your HS doesn't bother you? Does the OCZ Goliath mount via the Socket A's lugs--or does it use the four holes in the mainboard?
I ask because the moment of a Delta 80mm 68 cfm fan(these are extra thick, and heavy) gives me pause. I'd like to put the Delta 80mm on a Vantec CCK-6035D(that uses the Socket A's lugs), using a short aluminum 60-80mm fan adapter. TIA!


And yes, I'd really like to see pics!

Funny you should mention that cloasters.

I used to run a 120mm sunon on my CPU.

The fanadaptor was a cardboard and tape construction and about 10cm in length.

It worked very well for a week or so untill the tape came loose and the whole lot came crashing down.

My PC turned itself off once it hit 60*c

It was quite funny

When it worked however it was eccelent..at 7v the fan was fairly quiet yet the temperatures where great.

One tip is to have the fan sucking not blowing..i found it to be both quieter and more effective.

I ducted one of my 120mm NMB's onto the opening in the sink for the fan for my Volcano 6, it worked like crap. It was worse than the Volcano II fan I had on it. Next up for me is putting a pair of my 120's on the case for output and really upping the suction at the cpu duct.

actually the OCZ Goliath mounts via all six 'tabs' on the socket.

it's quite strong and i wouldn't have dared to do this if it had any other hold-down method, other than the 'lugs' or holes in the mobo.

i will have pics very shortly here, just gotta get my friend to bring the digi over.

Nikon Coolpix 995e, so be prepared for some high quality pics...

Thanks for responding to my Q's, samsonx. The Vantec CCK-6035D only grabs on to two lugs(1 on each side) of the Socket A. It's heavy, too. Maybe I need to heft the Glaciator--then the Vantec will seem light!

I could build a safety tether for the big Delta, but that's not an ideal solution. It looks like I will have to cut a hole in my left case cover, mount the Delta there and run a duct to the Vantec. Or, maybe a Pabst or other ~33 cfm 60 mm will spare me the shriek of the Delta 60mm Screamer. They do get tiresome!

Thanks again!

that site has some nice fan adapters, but the 120 to 80 mm adapter cost ~$20! Way more than i spent... $0!

:edit:
oh wow! i just realized i actually did a 120mm to 60mm fan adapter... they dont even sell those!
:edit:

anyway

it actually did allow me to oc my beast a little more. but mostly i need to volt mod to get any high speeds i think.

Wow. Nice pics, thank you for posting them! Hoo-wee that's a big fan! The 120 to 60mm reduction is very short. Perhaps this let's turbulence be a bit of a problem(it will be, no matter what). The good point is that the leverage exerted by the fan is on a very short arm. Weight x Arm= Moment, aka leverage.

I'm not confident of my Vantec's use of only one(x2) of the Socket A's lugs. The 80mm Delta will have to wait for a PAL-8045. I really don't want to buy a new HS atm. Looks like a ~33 cfm 60mm is the answer. I haven't listened to the Screamer since last year. As I won't be OCing the Duron 950, 33 cfm should be OK. After a year and a half and more of Delta Screamers, I don't wanna hear them! Thanks again for the pics!
