Guys question: has anyone tried to mount the 3.5 hdd drive in this place ?



On weekend i will try with this idea.
post #7522 of 11741
I was able to get a 3.5" to 2.5" Hot swap bay in there, but it required modding the bracket. If memory serves, (I don't quite remember the measurements as it was several months ago) it was about 3-4mm too short to be able to get a regular 3.5" HDD in there. (this included the rolled steel around the cable management holes that would have to be cut out.)

Hello again.

Been doing a little thinking. Did an analysis of my computing needs and wanted to bounce a few topics off of the fellow ITX board owners. ANd here I feel is a great place to ask since we all have an ITX case that fits all the bells and whistles inside without much of a hassle. I started this build solely for the looks of the Prodigy case and really nothing else. I have no need for a high end computer for work or gaming. I get by fine on this 2.1 ghz AMD sempron 2 gig ram 250 gig HDD. I'm not a gaming enthusiast even though I enjoy browsing the software manager for new little games to play from time to time. I only have a computer to pass the time. . . .web browsing, small low power games and the occasional DVD movie watch.

I chose to build a computer for a few reasons. First off, it's a new challenge to me. I have owned several desktops over the years, all which were constantly modified and upgraded to keep them as modern as possible. My first major hardware build up was on an old Apple PowerMac 9600/233. It replaced my PowerMac 7200, which offered less room for future expansion. That was a beast of a computer in it's time and it lived a long life well past it's prime. Before the board burned up, It was running a Sonnet G4, maxed out ram, 2 HDD's, USB PCI card, Firewire PCI card, Sound PCI card and a separate Graphics card. All of that was added at far more than the cost of a new PC tower, but I enjoyed keeping the old tower running. Always been a sucker for old computers even at the cost of lower productivity.

After my Prodigy build is complete, I will be retiring this bottom of the barrel laptop here. It's a Toshiba Satellite L455D. SIngle core sempron, 2 gig ram, 250 gig HDD, This computer won't play any decent FPS games without some seriously low frame rates, but I dont play thos type of games. I'm addicted to Super Tux Kart and thats the most powerful game I actively play. This computer, as slow as it is, plays the game at max settings without lag.

Just thinking out loud over here and hoping to get some feedback on the upcoming MOBO/CPU purchase. I've noticed an i3 is about half as much as an i5. We all know the i5 is the minimum processor that any PC builder will install in their computer. But I want to know how all you guys feel about an i3 for my Prodigy. It's almost $100 cheaper and its still double the power of what I have here. The i5 will last longer before it becomes outdated, but the i3 is still a tempting offer. I don;t plan on overclocking and don't have a need for such speed. Is it taboo to buy an i3 for this build? it's cheaper and still plenty of power for me.

I'd like to know what everyone here thinks about running an i3 in my Prodigy. Or do I just admit the i3 is fading technology and an i5 is the new low end standard. Should I buy the i3 or wait and save up an extra $100 and just go for the i5. i7's are completely out of the question. Remember that this is an ultra low buck build with no bells and whistles attached. Let me hear some opinions.

I'm gonna go ahead and pull the AMD card. Idk what you want storage-wise, but maybe try this! You won't need an i5, and this will give you plenty of performance. Left out OS, OD, storage for your own customization. Saw the Seidon M was cheap so added it.

Use the bracket and mount it to the front of the mobo tray/psu cover.

i was hoping someone will help me to plan the tubing

i came up with something like this but im afraid that rad → res part wont fit
- 90* fittings on pump
- 45* fittings on cpu block
- one 45* and one normal on rad



probably missed the proportions a bit
