Btw the pci-e extender you used is really fragile as I killed 3 of those already don't bend it too much as the solder joint will come off. (I only use high end ones costing 8 dollars a piece such a waste if you can get a working one for 1 dollar you know.)

Already on my second extender. Haha, gone through who knows how many 40 mm fans as well

Very Cool! I've been working on an SNES computer mod myself, and I was actually going to start posting the worklog tonight. I see that when you're mounting the GPU, you're using threaded rods and metal plates. I've been trying to decide how I should design the brackets for mine, I'd love to trade off a couple of ideas.

Why a cat? Because the internet loves cats according to the guy who game me this case. Thanks!

It also makes a great comparison shot for my NES:

Daring! I seem to recall the SNES was smaller than the NES (never had one just remember it being smaller at a cousins house once, so I may be wrong)

I originally had a metal plate that you can probably see in some of the pictures to mount the gpu but the problem was fitting it in the case. Every time I went to assemble everything I was afraid the not so smooth edges would tear something. So I decided on making some brackets and rods and it seems to be working much better and there is more room in the case now.

Awesome progress. I could see someone opening the front, "Let me just open this and put the gam- A RADIATOR!?!?!?!?!" biggrin.gif Your cat is cute as hell as well tongue.gif

Was the temp measuring done while the game bay was open or closed?
As I'd figure it make a great difference.

Awww he thinks he's a computer. Did the case fit? I think you should ditch the nes idea and make a cat house out of the lenovo case........Told you they love cats.

I'm attempting to mount the GPU in a similar way, but the PCI-e extender I would need to do it may end up being too long. I hadn't really thought of using threaded rods, I have access to a mill up at school so I was going to try to get some aluminum sheets, drill holes and bend them. A lot of stuff needs to be mounted with horizontal screws, so I'm still looking for the easiest way to do it. I really like the radiator you're using; I always knew that water loops could yield some very compact builds, but with everyone wanting a double rad or bigger, I've never seen much interest in people doing it.

Made some more progress this week, nothing worthy of pictures however.
I've made a place to mount the on/off and rest switch as well as getting the pump and fan power a little more organized
