This is the best that I could do. There's about an inch, maybe a tad bit more of room behind the motherboard.
For an $80 case, it's worth it.
Spent some time this weekend working on the testbench. Drilled holes into the wood top for standoffs, so I can mount boards directly to the desk top, and mounted drives and PSU underneath, once cable management holes were added. Nice and clean now:
Cut side off so ports are not blocked, and cut a groove into the top for expansion cards, so they sit properly:
Waiting for iron-on edging to cover the cut areas.
that very nice man
how about a support bar for graphics cards?
I could, but the little groove I cut into the top seems to support them well enough.
That's real nice man, i'd be too scared of spilling my beer to do anything like that tho
I don't drink and overdrive.
I have this setup in my livingroom ATM, and have 4 kids, 3, 5, 8, and 10. Can't say I worry about myself, or them damaging hardware.
I could create an enclosure to simulate a case environment, I suppose, kinda like what Thermaltake's Lvl10 does, hmmm....
some old server case that has been painted white
I moved recently, still looking for a decent desk
Sure is dusty in the garage!
I want that bike!!!!
My current man cave / command center. My 570 is no longer under H²O
It's in a horrible state! 11 errors to be corrected ASAP... working on it as typing...
Yesterday the RAM heatsinks were done! Already running much faster!
Had to reroute some cables today to add another storage drive so I went ahead an had a little photoshoot
Bro your cable management gets better and better everytime. You definitely do one of my favorite CM ever!
Looks good, oh the PC looks good too Share with us some photo tips
Ah, nothing in particular. You've just got to have the right lighting. I make rich and crisp the colors in Photoshop, the raw photos of the D50 tend to be kind of milky.
had to add another cooling fan due to the summer heat...
Oh i had also replaced the ribbon style IDE cable with a round braided one that's covered by black heatshrink.
I think temps will improve once I upgrade the room's case cooling...
^yes i sleep on a mattress on the floor... i'm broke
the current case temps measured near the cpu socket (via case sensor) is at 104 F. current cpu load is about 10%. Outside temp is at 81F, and its 10:40PM my time. My room temp is probably 90F since it holds heat for a while (even with the window fan bringing fresh air in)
Manually adjust your white balance.
That side panel shot is fantastic.
Now for some run of the mill shots:
It's never going to be opened, so I didn't go hog wild with the CM, just made it tidy for air flow. Booted up no sweat, one of the more trouble free builds I have done.
I really wish this shot would have turned out, it is a gorgeous little case and is light as a feather.
Nice case. Do you have that rear fan as intake or exhaust?
The believe that the rear fan is setup as an intake, which is the default from the factory. Nifty airflow, since the PSU is in the front of the case. Cool air is sucked in right above the cpu, and exits out the front, where the front fan is sucking the hotter air that is coming out the PSU exhaust.
I LOVE the PC-A05
Keep an eye out on the rear top end of the case though, it might get a little warm there. I cut out a fanhole there:
Not using it anymore though...
