Remodel standard power supply unit into a fanless one.


    Draw the radiators together until the pipes flatten up to 4 mm: if you squeeze them more, this can affect the further workability of the pipes. Spacers prepared in advance can help to keep up the proper gap (you may use washers; see press for pipes).
    Now the device is ready for final assemblage. We proceed to it. At first, paste the heat pipes having spread them with thermal adhesive.

    If you’ve flattened the pipes correctly, they must fit in with a little strain, that’s why you can not rely on your fingers strength but take the mentioned above pliers and press the pipes in up to the stop. If desired, you may fix them in such position with suitable clamps and leave for a night. Next morning take the halves of remote radiator and a tube of thermal paste…
 


    … and use them for their intended purpose.
  


    Take some more thermal paste and spread it on the upper end faces of radiators and angle bars withdrawing the heat from the throttles.
 


    Fasten the radiators-extensions.
 


    Take up the dremel tool again :). We have to close the cover by some way assuming that the extensions jut out of the case for one centimeter. Properly mark the window opening and cut it out:
 


    In my case it turned out to be a bit extended diagonally with respect to the power unit walls: I evened the extensions by the main radiators of the power unit, and they proved to be soldered in quite crookedly. But this doesn’t affect the speed :). Close the cover and admire the result:

Really, really, really cool mod
Non-constructive thoughts about modding...

    All began when one day my neighbour, he is Automatic Control Engineer, came and started to beg me to give him one diode. When I asked him why, he typed modding in a search engine. And it had a great effect on me. I was sick about it. Maybe there is nothing accidental in the world and this modding seed fell into good soil. All my life I was interested in design.
