    sorry for the crappy image :toast:
    since my case has limited airflow i add heatsink to cool the chip. i use old heatsink from broken psu, cut it and make some fins. add little glue and so far it works pretty good

    I used a bunch of leftover ramsinks that i bought and stuck them on just about every chip on my mobo
    I only needed four on the GPU so the other 4 went on the mobo

    nvidia logo case wood edition

    hey guys
    i have made this case by my self
    and this picture i take in the competition in isreal at 8/22/12

    [​IMG]

    i took the 3rd place :)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    it is and 32 inch tv
    [​IMG]


    i ask my self why there is no nvidia logo case ? just cases edit by nvidia and CM
    so i start build by my self this case , first of all i build it to my self and when i almost finish the case i see the advertisement that tells there will be an OC and MODING competition
    so i finish to build this case and took the 3rd place in the competition
    i built this case slowly and it takes me like 4-5 months to finish it

    i built a stand too for this case that allows him to spin 360 deg by a 80mm fan

    [​IMG]

    and i also built blinds for the front case tho hide the 3X80mm fans , i make it from blza

    [​IMG]

    this case can contain an a micro ATX mother board
    to close the fans and protection from dust i use "Mosquito net" at the front and top
    and to allow a good air flow , the temp inside the case is the same like the room temperature +\- 2deg on idle temp

    all the cese is made from wood except 5 aluminium parts that i have made from cd reader
    3 alunidium parts hold the PCU and the 2 others holds the HDD in place


    the full gallery you can see here

    enjoy

    Love this thread! to me functionality trumps aesthetics everytime when it comes to hardware, wish I still had pics of all my skt 939 mods! at one point I had a donated mini fridge I converted into a convection/push'n pull fan refrigerator cooler for my pc lol that mini fridge is now reincarnated into a mini keg cooler for my lil brother's college draft beer setup :p

    edit: Ingenuity combined with a logical imagination is a wonderful thing, don't ever let stigmas or complexions get in the way of maximizing performance/bank. The more you save by adapting stuff you already own, the more disposable dough you'll have to spend on the next gen stuff of tomorrow is my motto

    I got that one. Don't get it. They also make a front device that comes without the HD stuff and without its own fan. Since the EX-33N fan was so weak, it was a waste.

    But you have the right idea: both bay devices hold fans and are filtered.

    Here is what mine looks like now. Special Thank You to, You know who you are. How does it look? This is the first time I have used the HDMI cable for the Monitor, It works GREAT! And it has a lower profile! Sweet!
