I know about your post, I had already posted there.
BTW, do fans zip tied to the HDD bays in the middle of the chassis for better cooling count as ghetto mods?

Yep it was hot because you have a card there in the way. I have the M4A785-M and the chip under full load is like 45 with the stock "winged" cooler. The southbrige cooler is only a 1 inch square metal piece but the guy at local computer store told me you could get it up to 60c without problems as long as you dont hit the 100c. So based on him the Asus board we got both have the mobo temp sensor in the NorthBridge. But I tried the SB temps with a thermometer and its going over 45 celcius so I try to find a cooler that fit there.

Put a PNY blower fan on an ASUS 8600GT, it didn't fit right so i had to modify the shroud so air actually went over the heatsink rather than blown back out the intake. use an index card under the electrical tape. sucker is noisy... runs at 53-54c idle.

From the other thread:

I managed to scrap together a MicroATX test bench today out of a year 2000 HP Pavilion case. It can safely mount 2x 3.5" drives, a single 5.25" drive, and has a removable floor with padded feet. I would have much preferred a nice acrylic bench that can hold more securely, but this will do for now :)




That motherboard sitting on the top in those pictures is one line of screws less wide than a normal mATX board.

Now I'm looking for a good PSU with long wires to leave with it. I found a 550W BFG modular on here for $45 shipped, and then an OCZ 600W modular for $55+shipping. Maybe I can get some goods sold soon so I can afford one:rolleyes:

Note: I got a tad OT I think so .. Sry about that but I havent actually slept and I tend to ramble in such instances.. .. LOL

Well.. Im new here and have been lurking for a day or 2.. Decided id actually sign up and show off my Ghetto PC which I love so much

I had finished these mods months ago but never got around to doing any cable management... IT WAS BAD TOO.. Look like someone threw up a mess of wires in the case...So I disconnected everything at 3:30 this morning..LOL.. took the PSU out.. broke out the zip ties,duct tape, and the split tubing and went too work. It took around 1.5 hours and a bit of frustration as the PSU wires were a bitch to get done but im happy with the overall outcome. Not too bad for an amateur.. The idle temp of the 6800 actually dropped 3 degrees because of the cable management.. Increased airflow from the 60mm's I bet..Wires were so messed up that the airflow the 60's produced was nil.. MUCH better now.. The fan cavity is void of wire:)..

This PC kicks ass.. Not as fast as alot of ya's but it sure ain't slow either




With all these fans.. I'm sure some are asking what temps I am running...I havent configured Speed fan yet.. Just reformatted like a week or so and im lazy


Under load my processors never goes above ~44C and my video card under load hits ~65C (i.e. Modern Warfare 2 at max settings)

One final note.. I saw someone post a fan control that he made.. Sure would like to get the schematic for that if possible... Graduated electronics like 2 months ago and I'm looking for another small project to keep me busy.. Last board I built was an Electronic Fuel Injection Enhancer. A guy wanted me to build him one and this was a money job.. I downloaded the schematic,made my own layout and took a few hours to actually build it.. I found a flaw in the design based on what the expected voltage was suppose to be... R2 for the 555 (8 pin DIP chip) was of the wrong value.. 15K instead of 23K.. I calculated the value and confirmed this in MutiSim 11 circuit simulator.. Found this out after I built it:banghead:.. Was wondering why my voltage was 40% off...Dude wasn't happy with it IMO.. but that's his problem.. I fulfilled the assignment to the letter.. Dude wanted something a 3rd the size and SMT.. I laughed at him .. He never said this when I took the job.. He showed me a pic and a schematic and said "I want this".. I told him not a problem and I would make a prototype NOT a production model..


I also modded my guitar. Totally revamped the electronics which is a big improvement..Sounds SEXY as hell...The back pickup is a Gibson 1979 T-TOP Humbucker.. came out of a Les Paul I used to own
