Turning my PC into shuttle/lanbox

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi,

Well basically i want to build a "lanbox", and use my parts from current PC. Since i don't have any clue about shuttles or whatsoever, thats why i'm asking you guys for advice, it will be mainly used for gaming/pc will be in use alot.

My current setup:
Mainboard S-1155 ASUS P8P67 Pro, ATX
CPU INTEL Core i5 - 2500K, 3,30GHz, LGA1155, Quad-Core, Boxed
PSU ATX 650 Watt, CORSAIR 650TX, 80Plus
GFX CARD ATI HD4850 512mb&256bit
G.Skill DIMM 4 GB DDR3-1600 Kit (F3-12800CL7D-4GBRM, Ripjaws-Serie) CL7 8-7-24
DVD-+R/-+RW SATA LG GH-22NS50, bulk,
HDD SATA II Samsung SpinPoint F4, 320 GB, 16MB Cache
Miditower XIGMATEK Midgard
Mugen 2 CPU Cooler

I want to get a new GFX card aswell, was thinking about 560Ti twinfrozer, not sure yet, gonna have to take a look, but it should be able to fit a card similliar to that.

Another question about cooling/temps and so on, i will be using the pc alot and mainly for gaming aswell and ofcourse i will OC it, so a question about temps, you can't really fit a big cpu cooler like mugen 2 in it, so how does it work, won't temps get rly high?

Thanks

there are quite a few cases for micro atx motherboard, but there are only a couple that will work with a regular ATX and i do not think those are in production anymore.
You will most likely need to get an matx mobo to do what you need.

And what are the good micro atx motherboards? I will want to OC afterwards for sure aswell, well want to stay in my budget aswell and don't pay again like 200 for another motherboard.

Are these any good: Mainboard S-1155 ASUS P8H61-M Pro (Rev.3.0), Micro-ATX?
Cheers for the help

This is a very nice Mini-tower case that will fit regular ATX size motherboards. i think its one of the best lan/shuttle cases around.

You will lose overclocking with your 2500k going with an H61 board. I have a P8P67-M PRO and its matx.
