That doesn't belong in this thread. It's not ghetto, it's fucking brilliant!
I'd do the same thing.
You know what will be a better solution rather than all those books?
Get a bit of a longer screw and attach it one bracket below the graphics card.
The bolt is now supporting your graphics card.
This was the ghetto window mod on my old emachines case
i carved it out with a kitchen knife, a screwdriver and pliers
i used clear plastic from a calculator box ( LOL) and i stuck it on with normal tape
wow that sure is ghetto but not bad work for what you used
yeah, you even had the decency to bend the edges LoL.
thats true ghetto lmao ....
Quoted for truth.

Old PSU fan moded onto HIS HD5770 heat sink ( as original fan was farked)
it works but make the card take up 3 slots instead of two
No point in making small ghetto mods, make your PC ghetto
This is my old PC from around 2004
Those 2 fans (yes there are two of them ) in front are actually 24V fans, so I hooked them up to a separate power adapter, and made a switch to turn them on (the switch is right above the HDD)
I love this thread
Any reason those fans are blowing out of the case? Cause I see the little transparent 80mm fan in the back blowing out as well... I'd have used that front fan as an intake instead
Otherwise lovely ghetto modding there
Actually what would look really funny as would be to stick an brick into the hole so it looks like it's been thrown at it (insert it at a slight angle)
The rules of physics don't apply in ghetto
On a more serious note I have no idea why did I put them that way, I think i turned them around later on
Here you go, my ghetto side case fan arrangement. My GPU temps were rather high, so I tried this with a spare fan I had from an old Antec Sonata. Worked quite well, GPU temps went down about 5C. (And I know my wiring is ugly, the case isn't very good for it)
Side of the case. The fan is held on by duct tape; I tried to use screws but my fan had those stupid plastics standoff things, and I didn't want to remove them, so I resorted to duct tape.
Close up of the fan. It was actually spinning, but my camera shutter speed was fast enough that it doesn't look blurry.
I think it would have looked much better blurry now you can see the dust clinging to the leading edge of the fan blades
as for the cables ZIP TIEs mofo
nice nice this is what the mod is
show your creativity and your madness
i spy a ud3, loved that fuckin board, owned a few ud3r's oc'd like a gorrilla on crack.(9650)
I suppose so. My camera takes blurry pictures when I don't want it to, and clear ones when I do.
Yeah, it's quite a nice board. Overclocks very well.
This thread just keeps growing
damn i could have so won the gheto comp.
A few years ago i was running a very hot over clocked athlon 700 slot A. to cool the case i took a 240V fan from a microwave, and spiced the internal 240V supply on my psu then ran wires straight over to it on a light switch housing screwed to the side of the case.
The fan use to make the monitor wave it gave out that much interference! and i later electrocuted myself removing said fan! good times!!
Was so gheto it burned literally!
the fan looked like this
and the switch looked like this..
was a very very sexy mod. Wish i still had pictures!
I don't have any pics, but back in highschool, my buddy's XBOX (the original XBOX. Even had the gay huge-ass controllers. WTF were you thinking microsoft?) started overheating. Both of us being new to computer modding, we took a somewhat less than scientific approach.
We cracked that sucker open, dremeled out the XBOX logo, mounted a clear Sunbeam fan with a green circular cold cathode on the outside of the case, and put the XBOX logo back on top of the CC. We then proceeded to "Modify" the EMI shield to allow air to pass inside the XBOX, and I plugged the fan and CC inverter into the XBOX's power supply (dang, microsoft! Thanks for the standard Molex!). The CC had a space between it and the fan, so it drew air in around the CC. It even looked pretty cool.
Best part of the whole story was when he, looking at the unused second port on the output side of the POWERED ON inverter, pointed into it saying "what's this for?" and burnt the crap out of his finger
(although, to be fair, that fan's blades claimed a sizeable chunk of my finger before the project was finished, too. )
Here's a Paint to give you the general idea.
After another year or two, it started overheating again so he (without my help, I thought he was an idiot) took all the hardware out of his xbox case, tore the guts out of a perfectly working computer, and put the parts in there. He then pointed a table fan at it. Still overheated. *slow clapping*
I'm currently in the process of dremeling a grid of holes on the top of the plastic case for my Netgear WGR614v9, does that count as ghetto? Will post pics when done.
Well, here's the result:
made some clamps, to hold an AMD K6 HSF over the NB using the stock Heatsinks mounting system(spring pins)
previously idle temps for mobo was 45C and load temps were 55C+
now loads are max 45C
the cellphone camera sure is ghetto
no camera sorry.
I don't think Ive ever seen anything so ghetto... love it, lol
