After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration. 

Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at

  • Stealth Mod Project

    Published: Wednesday, January 24, 2001 - Modding Stealth Mod Project

    This is an interesting project. We decided to make our modifications look as if the factory wanted them that way. The "stock" look if you will. We added a total of 5 fans to this case 2 92mm, 2 80mm and 1 60mm.

    The end result was a stealthy looking mod that brought the internal case temperature down 10 degrees!

  • Lexan Window and Fan Install

    Published: Tuesday, November 7, 2000 - Modding Lexan Window and Fan Install

    The first attempt at a case mod was a simple one. I opened up a few problem points to allow a free airflow thought my case. This next mod was in preparation for my new computer. I added a window to show of the insides and fixed the airflow problem that arose in the previous project. In a way by doing this mod I am countering a previous statement I made during the first project, but not completely, I only used 92mm fans.

  • HDD Cooler Installation

    Published: Saturday, July 8, 2000 - Modding HDD Cooler Installation

    A simple project of installing a HDD cooler. Recently I upgraded to a 15gig 7200rpm Maxtor Hard Drive to replace the 5gig Western Digital drive that I was going to use in my Linux box (The project will be posted soon). When transferring the O/S and programs to the new drive with Norton Ghost I couldn't help but notice how much heat this drive produced.

  • Case cutting mod for better cooling

    Published: Wednesday, June 28, 2000 - Modding Case cutting mod for better cooling

    In this project I take my dual p3 450 machine and open up the fan access holes to allow better airflow. For the project I added 2 Evercool 80mm fans to vent the processor section and accomplished this in such a way as not to destroy the look of the case. The "stock" look if you will. Now granted grilled fan holes poking out of the side and a 120mm "blowhole" cut into the top of the case would be quite impressive, I felt it was a tad overkill for this application.
