    So, what to do when the PWMs overheat like hell due to the MASSIVE size of the Mugen II precluding any airflow below it from a standard direction ?

    Throw out the I/O shield and ziptie a 92mm fan, that's what:

    Instant 30c off the load temps (From around 90c to around 60c). My rear case fan is an intake, as well, the exhausts are on the top of the case. Seems to be the best setup for this combination of case and CPU heatsink.

    the cap of my cheap thermaltake res exploded, and his threads crumbled away, showing me why i have holes at the bottom of my "Shark" named case...

    how could i fix that? the easy, but durable way?

    Maybe in an old Dresser...

    I've hung one on the wall too...

    I'll make a point of doing a ghetto mod soon just to keep my skills honed. Found object converted to PC use is my favorite.

    Id like to have a Benchtable and have thought about making one. Im waiting to see this Ghetto one. :D With a little luck I wont need the chair CyberDruid used. I just cant see spending $200+ for one of any count.

    I usd to love wrapping my PSU cables really tight with thin electrical tape...great for airflow...but a sticky mess if you ever want to unwrap it.

    And not so good really, the joys of melting really thin copper cable in school and still failing to pick up that damn paper clip -.-

    Good times.

    its a really easy one, made of wood and random litter from my working place.

    It wont be a fashion queen, but it is sturdy as hell, and should have nice airflow when im ready.

    little gehtto info:
    it has got a selftightening harddrive mount, made of 4 rectangular coat hooks... and is fully vibration isolated thru polystyrol plates

    material cost should be about 15-20$... affordable

    im at 75%.... construction should be ready in this week

    Used to house a server, but I took all the sides off it and going to cut the top bit of wood off (everything apart from where the mobo sits and the bit that holds the PSU in place).

    =] Tis made of win and its a bit ghetto xD

    Features:

    - Full ATX mount (fitted).
    - ATX power supply solution.
    - Open air flow.
    - Black glossed finish.

    Cost nothing as I used an old shelving unit for "supplies"

    youre right, the table definetly goes in the direction of your shelf.... but it definetly looks more like a case than yours ;-)
