In another attempt to appease my modding urge, I’ve redone Plague again, this time adding the temporary array from the old Headcrash setup to this box. Basically, I wanted to see if I could stuff four 10,000 rpm SCSI drives into a space designed for two while maintaining tolerable case temperatures.
What I ended up doing was purchasing four wood reinforcing strip from Home Depot and doing a little bit of trimming and clipping to the case to make it fit properly.
Then I drilled two holes in the front of the case for a 120mm and an 80mm fan. The two fans blowing at 7v are sufficient enough to keep the case at ambient without sounding like a vacuum cleaner. Unfortunately, the ball-bearings on the 10k drives whine like madmen.
Here are some pics from the project:
