Have a small update to bring!
The CPU arrived a few days late, but it looks good! Haven't installed an Intel CPU since the Pentium III days. I was actually surprised that this CPU didn't have any pins on it rolleyes.gif I must be getting old.
So here it is with the stock heatsink on!

I'm working on making a back-plate for the Motherboard until I can buy the PSU on Thursday. Here are some pictures of that!

I'm also disassembling the head so that I can get the LEDs wired for the hard drive.
Also, I can't mount a 120MM fan on the top because the 24pin connector for the motherboard is in the way. So the top and back will get 90MM and the video card will get two 80MM.
Again, thanks for all your support! We'll see you again soon!

Sorry guys (and gals), but I regret to inform you that I am facing a few financial predicaments at the moment. This means that this case mod may be on hold for a bit (like a couple weeks) until my family regains it's financial stability. thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

In the meantime I will be hunting for the BEST deals that I can for a power supply. My issue with power supplies right now is that the regular ATX PSU case is too big to fit into the AT-AT. However, the smaller power supplies that are available don't have the power to run the GTX 580. My hope is to gut a quality power supply that has the least amount of circuitry I can find (Kind of difficult BTW tongue.gif ) and either fabricate a smaller case, or just leave it naked.

I'm not too worried about the optical drive. If I need anything installed, I have USB. biggrin.gif

I sorry to do this, but unfortunately the bills come first.

Aww man! I hate to see this go unfinished!

As for your PSU issue. Perhaps the building of a small base to hold a PSU will be needed. Not only will it house the PSU but give a steady base in which to attach the Walker to.

I think the PSU in the shuttle z68 case has eNough juice and would be small enough for your build. Maybe they sell those separate.

That is both totally awesome and kind of depressing. My project is no longer original, but I do have someone to compare notes with! biggrin.gif

I did a little researching and this is almost perfect! only two problems: (1) it's only 500W. I know that the shuttle system that goes with it does support the gtx 580, and that the total wattage won't exceed 500w. but the noob in me is scared that it isn't enough juice, and I don't want to run the PSU at near 100% while gaming. (2) it's $175. For that price I'll just gut out either an OCZ, Antec, or PCP&C and save myself about $100.

It was great advice! and I do love the suggestions!

If you can't fit the PSU in the AT-AT, and are looking to use a second case just for that, maybe you could get an AT-ST toy and throw the PSU in there?

Or you could do what I considered.. You could make the psu into the power generator smile.gif

Really good job! Can't wait to see yours complete also!

This is amazing. Hopefully you can go back to working on it soon!
