    Oh yeah. That be ghetto. What I really want to see though is the layer upon layer of tape after you've had to go in to make some changes to the hardware. Anybody can tape a fan to their case, but it requires true dedication and persistence to do it over and over again. :cool: :toast:

    edit: unless you use something like a endoscope to replace parts. Then I will be truly impressed - just by the shear, mind-bending contrast of using a $20k instrument to perform surgery on ghetto rigged PC.

    someone tried to break into my car so i removed my subs and amps (Rockford T1's on bottom powered by Hifonics Brutus 1700.1d, Hifonics 680w rms something on the lighitning audio on top)
    the LA sub wasn't in my car with the T1s the 680w hifonics was powering my back RF 6x9s

    it belongs in here because i used a 700w Silverstone PSU and 4 4ohm 20w resisters and a power cell to power both of the amps

    The chassis is a P182 from Antec. The cooler is a Thermalright IFX-14. The only problem was it didn't ship with 140mm mounting clips to hold the fans, so I simply used self-locking tie-wraps. It cooled well enough though.

    edit/ Found a better photo of the thing

    maybe its better if you place foam between the fan and the heatsink so it would help the zipties hold the fan better
    but its ghetto anyway :toast:

    got an old AMD K7(not sure) HSF.

    Its going to be my chipset cooler.
    So i remove the fan.
    mark out the dimensions of my stock chipset sink on a paper and superimpose that to the K7 heatsink.
    i cut out 6mm wide 1mm thick aluminium cut it into equal lengths.

    then i bent the strips into L's and epoxied it into calculated positions on the K7 HSF.
    waited a day for it to dry before applying final epoxy touches.

    then i layed a thin layer of epoxy on the aluminium strips to make them non conductive and paintable.

    now i have to remove my stock sink, mark the holes on the aluminium strips with respect to the desing. leet stuff :D
