One SB600 in the silver umbrella, another on the right. Air canister (to clean the platters every few minutes – even a single dust particle shows up in this light), tripod for the camera.
All photos were taken with manual exposure and manual focus (autofocus didn’t quite cut it in the low ambient.)

Gigantic 250mm fan! Moves a significant amount of air into the case while running pretty quiet and looking looking sexy with the red LEDs. I added a 12 inch extension cable so that I can remove the side panel and not have to detach the fan

I recently had to trim off 1/8 on an inch from all 4 screw mounts so that this fan doesn’t sit so deep into the case. I bought a Zalman 9900 Max CPU Cooler and a few test fittings revealed that the top of the cooler was in contact with the fan when the side panel was closed. Now the fan is still seated far enough away from the dust filter in front and the CPU cooler behind it.

Just made it! By the way, the fan is mounted ‘backwards’ in this photo just for a quick clearance test. I think I didn’t bring the bezel downstairs with me for the fitting.

Dust filter cut from a 1/4 inch thick piece of replacement air conditioner filter. Notice the thin black thread, it keeps the filter from from being sucked into the fan as it operates. A decent amount of light from the fan still manages to show through at night while catching a fair amound of dust.

I recently had to trim off 1/8 on an inch from all 4 screw mounts so that this fan doesn’t sit so deep into the case. I bought a Zalman 9900 Max CPU Cooler and a few test fittings revealed that the top of the cooler was in contact with the fan when the side panel was closed.
