    we used to do something similar with old CPU's cut all the pins off and very carefully drill a hole in them then add a spring clip and keys

    HDD cooler/silencer combo. Simple, yet extremely efficient.

    Temps drop from 38-40 to 30-32. Almost inaudible.

    EDIT: forgot to mention it fits in 5.25" bay like a charm.

    laptop hard drive, nintendo vid game case

    I took an old 60 gig laptop ide hdd and put it into a gutted nintendo game case (Airwolf) .
    the nes games had sum special screws holding them together so i ripd the case apart and added my own.
    notice the screws on the back in ghetto fashion, do not match and aren't even the same kind of screw head.
    i connect this to my wii an play games off it using an ide to usb adapter, works excellent

    if u didnt appreciate the first one.......

    people dont appreciate mutilated nintendo stuff ,
    but heres the mario/duck cunt - 80 gig sata laptop drive mod i did at same time as the airwolf junk mod
    haha, i had multiple copies of the games and a need for hard drive enclosures.
    they go perfect into the old NES game cases for added protection, and have the right mix of garbage and nostalgia

    I need to do this, mine broke over a year ago.
    I like the excess of TIM and how it looks like it could amputate a limb if you touch it. :)

    A little too much thermal paste, otherwise a pretty good mod.

    Both of those are great! I need to get me some binder clips :cool: BTW... is that speaker the iCrap brand?

    agreed
