Atari 2600 i5 3570k Build

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
So, this isn't exactly a new idea, especially since I got the idea and a few build specifics from the recent Hard Drives Northwest mod, but I wanted to put a low-mid level gaming machine into an Atari 2600 case. My goal was to keep the Atari as original looking as possible (i.e. looking at it head on would yield few clues that it wasn't actually a 2600). I went out and found a 2600 case in spectacular condition and then put together the parts. Here's what I put in it:

- Intel i5 3570k
- Biostar TH61-ITX + RCE motherboard
- 8GB Kingston HyperX 1333 Mhz DDR3
- PNY GeForce GT 430 1GB DDR3
- Intel 510 Series 120GB SSD
- Cooljag DEN-7 1U Server CPU Cooler

I mounted two USB 3.0 females into the two inner switch slots (they fit as though they were made for it) and then re-purposed the original outer switches to - you guessed it - power on/off and reset. Unlike the Hard Drives Northwest build I didn't want to have the entire rear panel of the motherboard coming out the back of the case, so I opted instead to cut out slots only for the power, RJ-45, two USB 2.0 slots & the DVI/HDMI outputs from the video card. I did however use their idea to mount dual fans in the cartridge slot. I also cut a slot for a 40mm fan on the bottom and then cut a rectangle out of the spot directly underneath the processor to output heat without radiating it too much into the plastic of the case. All these holes were covered with black metal honeycomb. I took the pictures below today and I will post more (including the innards of the beast) when I get the chance. I just wanted to see what everyone thought.
