    There's realistically no reason to get a MX chip other than binning.

    Unless proven in the ranger, it is required for overclocking.

    Now, if anyone has further points they can share in pm otherwise I'd like for this to get back on topic if you all don't mind.

    Ill be grinding that out tomorrow mid morning after the gym.

    I have to grind the contact plate to accommodate the extra pipes.

    This is all of course as long as I get the fan working first.

    The g703 fan now works with my cooling pad. Getting it to work was much simpler due to the wires following the same color scheme as desktop as another member had surmised could be the case.

    Fan control also works as well.

    Do note that the fan is powered externally.

    Also the fan fits almost natively in reverse. However I want to flip that so I will be cutting off the mounts to allow that scenario today.

    Now that I have been able to confirm this much the rest of the project can proceed.

    Time to get something to eat!

    One thing I forgot to add yesterday was that the CFM the replacement fan outputs is nuts. There is no 5v fan that even compares and now I can see why they are typically used in the larger machines.

    I have been working on the chassis again yesterday for the majority of the day to accommodate the scenario. I did make a mistake and broke part of the chassis but I dont consider it a huge loss, just some additional compromise to the overall integrity that I was ideally hoping to avoid.

    Today my brother in law is bringing his powered dremel as I have been doing what I have up to this point with a file and a power drill, which can hit higher speeds which should reduce potential damage to one of the heat exchangers I plan to trim down.

    One question to you guys though @Papusan @Khenglish @Mr. Fox and any others experienced in these sort of things.

    I have one contact plate that is completely copper, however it is very slightly bent. I did put it into a vice and tightened as much as possible, and I had also planned to attempt lapping it.

    The question is this, I have two other standard contact plates (copper contact, surrounding material aluminum) that maintained integrity, would be a better idea to simply use those instead?

    Thanks

    I'll upload pictures later today hopefully, not sure how much I can complete today when family is coming over, we always do christmas on the eve.
