Chaptre 3 : HAFinaX 2.1

29/04/2011
let's leave Asus for a little to join Gigabyte, sorry for the pix they were taken with an old Sony DSC-S780

Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

In work, no one to help, just an Origami to control :lol:

Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

Posted Image

Let's close the case now

Posted Image Posted Image

We do a brand new clean installation of Windows (after some mistakes with a SATA wire)
and here is the result


Posted Image

what more can i say more than, i'm happy of this "investment", it's all good, it works and i wasn't asking for more, nearly a new AirCooler for some OC ;), but this is another story :P

Chapter 4 : HAFinaX 2.2

05/08/2011

The Asus P8P67 Pro came back from RMA, I bought an i7 2600k so it's normal to be back to the Asus :P (with a mini blue mod for the HAFinaX)

Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

Like i said, a new air cooler appeared, the BeQuiet! Dark Rock Pro C1,very beautiful, but really $#!£ annoying to install, for good results and quiet, but at 12v (100%) it does some reactor noise :P (hopefully it's plugged with the Lamptron FC-2 Regulator)

Posted Image Posted Image

06/08/2011

Everything is installed (also windows :P ), so let's boot

Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

everything seems ok so let's close the beast :evilgrin:

Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image
Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

13/09/2011

some changes, like : a new DVD burner Asus (instead of LG), changed the red LEDS of the 230 Frontal fan to Blue, replacement of the 140 back fan by a 120mm NoiseBlocker XL2, and put the 140 in the 5.25" cage .

A BIG and HUGE thanks to ClandestinoDZ who gave me blue LEDS and the tools to do it, i couldn't do anything without him
and also a BIG THANKS to A13X who lend me a hand to help me working on the leds (cause i had no support to hold and do the solder in the same time :lol: ) so we did it with wooden clothespin


10/11/2011

Reception, unboxing and assembly of (03) blue Megaflow (sorry for the pix, but the cam doesn't support all these colors/lights :lol: .)

Let's Start with unboxing.

Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

Now let's open HAFinaX (like a surgeon :lol: :whistling: ) for the assembly, and here is what I discovered .... :mfp: :pfp:
Posted Image Posted Image

What the ... is this ... ? :pfp:l et's clean this as fast as possible (by the way the last cleaning is less than a month ago, hopefully it's only the upper part which is "like that", but it's up, get down with move (logically :lol:) )
Posted Image Posted Image
A way better ;) . I hope coolermaster (that i adore) will do filters that we can clean and remove easier (like in the NZXT for example) and especially more efficient filters because when i seen this .... :fp:

A fast disassembling of the Dark Rock Pro to clean the dust that felt on it. (it looks like my "old" Noctua NH-D14)

Posted Image


Finally here is the result. (precision : it's really blue not violet like in pictures)
Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

To conclude, i'm pretty satisfied with this fans, it's not really the same blue as the other lights (we don't see it a lot) but it breathes a lot of fresh air in silence :thumbsup:

actually it's a HAF-X but i also owned the HAF 932 for my previous Rig :evilgrin:

yes it's true it acts like a 2.1 setup but it's louder :P
i installed them like this because i haven't much space, and lot of wires

PS : i'll continue to post my other pictures and the evolution in few minutes (as soon as i'll found how to add a video :lol: i'm more familiar with vBulletin forums )

I think you may have misinterpreted his reply. I think he knows that it is a HAF-X, but prefers the HAF 932 more.

Personally, if I had to choose I'd pick HAF-X over HAF 932.
Glad to see another HAF-X owner. Although I despise the case's aesthetic appearance, I too will be joining the HAF-X club real soon.

Thanks for sharing your epic journey in 2011 with us. :thumbsup:
