Remodel standard power supply unit into a fanless one.


    If you have no broken Powerman on hand, you can mash the pipes straight on the radiators inside the power unit with the help of pliers with regulated jaw opening (by the way, we’ll need them later anyway):
 


    So, after several hours of torments you must get the following result:
  


    Bind the pipes with the same pipe-binding device by means of which you straightened the pipes; do this again little by little not to make damages. The ends sticking out of the power unit must be at equal vertical level in order they could be clenched with radiators. It is desirable that the “cold” pipe ends would be higher or at the same level as the “hot” (think over the position of the power unit in case beforehand). As a matter of fact, Zalman device can work with a little “negative” incline, but we don’t know at which point this workability ends. But its workability has the limits for sure as the wick is too simple. It will be a pity to do anew the finished power unit, that’s why it’s better to play safe. By the way, one more important detail: at first bind properly the end of the pipe which will be fitted in remote radiator, and only then start flattening the opposite end. The point is that the process of pipes binding is much more puzzling than unbinding because you have to bind in three dimensions. Taking into account that our tools are rather primitive, it’s difficult to predict what we finally get. If you’ve started from the “cold” end and can’t fit into the groove finally, it’s not a problem – you can bend it more; it’s quite another matter if you’ve flattened the “hot” end in wrong dimension – perhaps you’ll have to make another pipe. It’s difficult to explain, I think you’ll understand this when you start this modding yourself.

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.
