"Hello Choice, welcome to OCN. smile.gif Good choice with TX10. You could get a hold of Bill over at MNPCTECH, he may be able to help you out with a mod that suits your needs. Hope to see a TX10 build log from you."

any "lock" you can put in that system can easily be circumvented by a pair of pliers biggrin.gif

if someone REALLY wanted your data that badly, they take the whole machine with them.

i can appreciate the motive behind wanting extra physical security, however unless you are willing to bolt that case onto a concrete floor and do some additional welding to put a real thick steel lock mount, you will only be getting a false sense of security...

i know if I really wanted to steal your stuff, i'd bring a dremel with me when i come rob your house biggrin.gif

I don't really see this as a valid argument against having a lock on a case containing very expensive computer components. Every security that is manmade can be circumvented. So should we completely do away with security? Is there any sense in locking my car and rolling up the windows seeing that even that can be circumvented? Is there any point in locking my house doors and windows considering that even that can be beat by a determined thief? Let's make it bigger: is there any point in having police on the streets considering that the police cannot prevent every single crime?

 

The whole point is just to make it harder for people to fiddle with your stuff or to prevent the casual thief from carting away things you've spent thousands of dollars on or to prevent inadvertent damage to your expensive computer.

 

Given a choice between a computer case with a good native lock and another identical case without such a locking mechanism, I'm sure most people would prefer the one with the lock.

a thief won't steal a caselab , do you know how big it is ? and how heavy it is ? and how hard it is to sell back entusiat computer hardware? they want gold , cash , and small electronic not a full size server case ,...... but any small steel cable and a lock can do it like i said before just need small hole. if you have some real sensitive data (meaning not your familly photo , amateur video edition or p stash ) they will come only for that but they won't come, they would hack your computer insteed so put has many lock as you want it s doesn't protect the data anyway. and a burglar don't give a **** about your personal data , stop thinking your the center of the world.

Give me a small opening and a flat head. I don't need to break the lock...I could easily bend the metal and work around it, there is plenty of room.

Small children around the TX10...It is bigger then they are! They should know not to touch it. I know my 2 and 4 year old know not to touch daddy's toys. biggrin.gif

Worried about them rolling it out of your house and taking information?? Take the wheels off and put it on a mount.

Still worried. Install a camera inside of it that turns on when the case is opened. That way you at least know who did it.

last but not least....

I agree with delerious. If you want to, spend the money and go for it, but I really think that either way you'd be fine.

Like everything else in life some people would like to have a lock on their pc; some don't care a hoot about locks. I have not suggested that those who feel fine without a lock on their pc should now go ahead to look for one. It's a matter of choice and personal preference. The objective of this thread is to create a pool of ideas for those who would like to have locks on the pc - whether it is a mechanism that secures the entire pc casing or a device that merely prevents easy access to the interior of the pc. Some people have locks on their drawers and cabinets at home, especially if they keep valuable items like checkbooks and jewlries in them; some don't have locks on anything else besides their doors. Either way, having the choice to have a lock and various options to choose from should be a welcome thing. Even if you disagree with this, questioning my motive by asking if I'm a troll is antithetical to the spirit of this forum which, I suppose, encourages ideas for customization options for pc enthusiasts.

 

So far, some very good suggestions for installing a lock have been generated and I thank those who made them. At the same time, those who see no benefit in installing a lock on their pc have every right to feel that way. Those who think it's a good idea to have some form of a locking mechanism on their pc should be allowed to seek out good ideas for doing so.
