i brushed the case afterwards before plugging it in.
No, seriously. You need to remove all the stuff from the case before dremelling or hammering on it. You hammered the case with the hard drive in? Hope it doesn't die from the excess G's. And the metal dust can get places you can't even imagine. If it works after all this, I'll be shocked and amazed.
works. im a vry good cleaner.
and i hammered it with my small hammer. see the video!
Nice work de. I remember when I did something similar to my crappy old case. I cut a hole on the top of the case, and remove the front and back hexagon mesh with an angle grinder.. The result didn't look pretty at all. Though the increased airflow really did help with the temperatures, especially during summer time. Keep up the good work! I'm really interested how this will turn out
oooohhh yes!!!! the best tool in the shed: the hammer, it's the best tool for all IT workers around the world....
It honestly is when you're de-installing ancient equipment that's getting trashed anyways
Yes a 3lb mini sledge does so many wonders.
and do you use oxi acetylene to solder ?
Don't go anywhere without one with me
You're not really qualified to use it until you can separate every Ball Joint with one swing each on an old GM car's front end
But really, take out all components before you start on the case, even I know that and I am not having any modding knowledge nor skill.
well people call me eccentric for no reason ;p
You must have had a lot of practice being able to power file
Oh do i know exactly what your talking about. We got a guy at work that is just starting into general repair (had him r&r transmission for the last 5 yrs) and he was try to seperate a balljoint on some car last week. I heard him just banging away at it with a hammer and a fork. I reached in my box and grabbed ol' faithful, then told him you got to have finese and put the fear of god in it. I hit it 1 time on the side and it popped loose. All he could say was "I hate you"
I do, is there something wrong with that or a better way to do it? Nothing like melted parts in the morning
lol that fan hole is the first thing i filed in my life
Wasnt referring to the filing, more to the movement (A)
tons of practise then HAHAHA
You can tell, hehehe!
finally after a long time!
got some stuff to work upon!
made this board
got this fan and sleeved it (though this is for my new NZXT guardian case)
images may require log in to facebook to be able to view them.
Great work! de.das.dude
completed the board!
worked first time! no short circuits
no loose solders either \m/ (sorry i didnt have 5 of 3-pin fans at that moment)
will cut out the PCB from the whole thing later in daylight.
notice the LED? i chopped off the top and scruffed the sides to make it disperse the light all around. used a dremel for that.
What's the resistor for? The LED? I really like the fact that there isn't a molex plug on it, makes it look much more streamlined with just the power coming in on the black and yellow.
yes thats a 1k for the blue led. 600ohms is reqd, but it works with a 1k as i ghetto tested before, so i used it.
unfortunately there is a molex at the end of the yellow black lines
i used a line to give some amount of flexibility to the location i can mount the board, and also so that i dont need to bring a think molex power line all the way across the chassis to where i mount the board.
i built up the schematic as i was soldering the pieces. lol.
