Where Ghetto Mods get born... Alright, before I start to ruin more topics by expressing my sometimes ridiculously off-topic fiddling and tinkering thoughts, I decided to create a special place where all of us tinker-thinkers can come and put their tinkering ideas. Wot's that? Care to elaborate on the matter? But of course! I'm the kind of guy that sees stuff lying around in his room and wants to make something with it. Many of these mods will be referred to as ghetto mods, as they will utilise zero or very little freshly bought goods. Making leftover stuff into something new, useless or not, is something of a sport to me. But how do I participate? Does it involve picking numbers/my nose? Nay, nothing special is needed. Just spare parts otherwise cluttering a random space in your room, and a little inspiration for yourself and others. This club is both for displaying ideas and to ask for them. Think of it as a think tank. Of course, input is highly appreciated. An example using two standard fangrills, eight screws and two HDD's: My current "inventory": A copper-core Core2Duo cooler Several 80/92mm fans some 80/92mm fangrills TONS OF SCREWS two big things that are meant to be fangrills but suck at it due to turbulence noice Leftover cables (16 of em) from a 20-24 pin converter plus a 20pin female/male set Some cutoff molex cabling Copper braid I just cut out of a rounded IDE cable The fanduct formerly residing on the side of my mATX case An old working PSU with a crap noisy fan (doesn't necessarily have to survive) Lots, and lots of ducttape Current ideas (in random order): Whack the aluminum fins off of the stock cooler and gaze at the shiny copper Make some interesting concept cooling using the copper braid or summit on the stock cooler Find out if mounting an 80mm fan on the bottom of the stock cooler really is as pointless as I think it is Also, the heatsink fits exactly inside the fan duct somehow Alright! I think I like this kind of stuff! Great! Feel free to show your ghetto modding here and hopefully help some fellow fiddlers to build something amazingly simple and cool!
