Did you finish installing XP? I was wondering what your temps are like?
I never expected this to work, but it seems that there are a lot of people in this forum with plenty of time in their hands.
I am starting on my new box and i am going to try and make everything "hidden"
Intel 945G mobo
E1500(just to get it to run am going to put a PD 925 in soon)
2gb DDR2 800
500w OCZ modX PSU
old achievements were mostly to answer a question. dice is fun and when i use it normally i can pull off some fune stuff as for the overkill water i really want it but i wont have it for a little bit money needs to be in other places right now so i will be saving up for it.
I haven't seen anybody stealth their DVD drives yet :shadedshu
I would say a majority of forum users have quite a bit of extra time on their hands..
Now add to that that cardboard is almost free and can be cut with any sharp knife or scissors and held together with tape it allows just about anyone to participate.
Throw a few prizes their way and watch this thread explode..
One idea that may be cool is the winner gets his cardboard idea made by a pro in alum or material of his choice..
Project got back-burnered because I'm busy with some other stuff on my main rig. (That and I do have to get SOME work done to get paid. )
I have a new unassembled system in boxes.......X2 245 microATX....bet I could mount it in a box on the back of the monitor.
I said fuck the hidden look and i am working on something not all that great but i think better then my other box...
Anyone willing to donate prizes?
I think i win this
Do you have ALL of the parts to have a PC run in that box and working?
btw i am almost done with my box.I found a cool way to start it too lol Just need to put the fans in.
The rules don't say it has to be running
It may not say it has to be running but hard to follow this rule if it isn't
after looking through all the submissions only 1 has posted those
but anyways i was doing it as a joke
alright, im looking forward to this
what me ultimatively will bother, will be your choice of parts for that WC
well it made me laugh
If you could get this accepted by TPU
Im sure something could be worked out.
Sweet, I will stay tuned!
I am thinking of building a 2nd box and this one will be 100% original, I promise.
here is my box
Intel something 945
80gb WD HDD (SATA II)
2gb Patriot DDR2 800
500w OCZ ModX pro
now the way this turns on is kinda cool. My other box you shorted 2 wires to get it to turn on.well this one still uses the same wires but in a different way. You see the 2 thumb screws in the front..Well you short those to turn it on. IMO it looks better and is kinda cool. I haven't seen anyone do something like that before so i thought i would try it...this box can sit any way you want it too and still have support for everything even the big CPU cooler and PSU i made a little support for the the bottom of the PSU allowing the box to be laid down and not have to worry about the PSU falling on the mobo. CPU temp sits at a cool 18c idle in a real case cpu would idle ~25c so looks like temps are going to be fine. also to top it off and end the long post the box is almost silent too...Now here is what you all have been waiting for..I present to you the box v2
LOL, Freezer FTW!, cool idea with the 2 screws
Just thinkin, we should get the USPS to be a sponsor....
Awesome v2 box p o s! just like MK said, I love the power button, that is great idea. I also like how you flipped the psu and left it exposed. But.....it's not a "full" pc without the optical drive, lol...we can let that one slide though. amazing temps too!
Imma do UPS, uhhhhhhh!!! LOL
thanks i thought having the PSU showing would look better and help the PSU stay cool.
Just saw your new one Tim, even better, good job
Hey that's right, everyone is using USPS boxes. No Fedex, UPS, or even DHL. I used then box from then ac unit in my window, I knew it would come in handy one day.
