Case + Cooling Upgrade on Hagoromo Lala

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Last time I rebuilt my daily driver Hackintosh Hagoromo Lala with a reused tower cooler. That cooler did not bode well, leaving me with a system that overheats easily. Today's job is to upgrade the cooler to a Thermaltake AIO with 120mm fan. As a side job, the ODD need some fixup.


Overall system pic:



Execuse me for the non-existent cable management, as this is a rackmount case, which provides no space on the bottom of the case.


There are a few hacks being implemented to fit everything:

  • Flying leads galore in this build. Not only the SDOM needed 2 flying leads for 5V supply, the radiator fan in the front also needed 4 flying leads to power it.
  • This motherboard only have one front panel USB 2.0 connector. I have added a 4-port internal USB hub (the small PCB to the bottom left of the case) so I can support the two front panel USB 2.0 ports, the Wi-Fi module and the SDOM. That thing is hooked to the motherboard using yet more flying leads.
  • There is no way for me to have the original hard disk drive cage in there, as it interferes with the radiator. The HDD in the system is installed at the bottom of the ODD cage instead.

  • CPU: Intel Core i7-9700K, non-overclocked.
