Hi

I see some threads here about cooling PPC boards....

I have one CSPPC 604e and I'm waiting a new case for my project. What's the best method to get the PPC CPU cool?

I believe the factory heatskin & cooler are too small and I want to intall lot of expansions and perpipheals inside the case (Mirage Pro 4000)....

Any idea? Just fans? Liquid system?

I think that CSPPC factory cooler is good enough - the problem is that original A4000D has very bad air circulation. :dry:
And this is the real probelm - to improve air circulation inside the desktop case.
If you are going to install A4000 into Mirage tower - air circulation will be good enough for CSPPC factory cooling.

Yes, finally I bought one (not to mention price.....) at Elbox site. But regarding prices of modified cases and Mediator 4000D..... I think is not very expensive.

It comes also with the adapted version of the Mediator 4000D. If nothing wrong, the first week of January I have the new case at home.

I abandoned the PC-Tower modification because really I don´t have time to design, metal work, .......

Sure i open a new thread when all items are ready to start..... (y)

You're welcome my friend! (y)
This particular listing ended already, but please look for the Sunon fan with the same number. Or any 40x40 fan if you don't care about height and original look.

Hi

I think I have on "stock" some 40x40 fans

Is needed one 5v? or any 12v connected to the PSU is OK? I think is the same, right?

If you do care about original look please install 5V fan and connect it to CSPPC onboard power outlet.
If you don't care about oroginal look you can install 12V unit and connect it to HDD MOLEX connector, no problem.

Hey mate, I'm truely envious its going to be an awesome setup and I'm really looking forward to your post (y)

I thought about the Tower Mod myself as you know and in the end I think you're always better off with the official kit.

Keep up the great work my friend.

Hi Steve

Thanks alot for your kind words m8 (y)

Yes, with the "official kit" everything goes more simple to do.

Without speaking about money.... I spend lot of time, around one year, collecting every piece of my big (for me) project.

But now I see the light at the end of the tunnel........... :D

Best wishes
