Picked up this old amplifier case from the electronics dump, removed everything, put a plexi sheet with mobo mounting standoffs on the bottom. The PSU is a standard ATX PSU which was selected for its small PCB size. The RADEON is mounted with a 90° AGP riser card (ebay, a long time ago, ~$35).
Silence was the most important criteria when building this case.
- All fans are quiet Panaflos or similar and run at 5V/7V.
- The video card's fan power is disconnected.
- The Samsung HDD (very quiet already) rests on foam to reduce seek noise.
