    External HDD enclosure made out of a tissue box and cardboard from the previous ghetto HDD enclosure I had. I find this one quite an improvement over the other one (of which I don't have pictures). On the first pic you can see the cardboard & tape height increaser (to allow air to pass underneath). The fan is an exhaust fan, BTW and not an intake one.

    I like that it has a grill on the fan. The cardboard cases seem so fitting somehow; like not out of place at all. Maybe its just me lol

    Thanks Irony. Cardboard is a great material IMO and really underappreciated.

    I would have thought an HS from a mobo chipset would have been a better choice / fit but hey if it works right who cares

    yeah but basically they have the same function, chipset heatsink would be clean than this one :D yeah but it works well

    actually that chip isnt too hot, but i have unused heatsink why dont give it extra cooling. its kinda nice solution to have better cooling with some effort :roll: :roll:

    another ghetto, but not related to pc
    this is my ghetto blitz diffuser, actually the blitz is ok for mid range but when the object closer like under 2m it would over exposure. so i decided add some plastic and tied it

    Probably to keep pressure between the cooler and the CPU.
