Slight Case Mod Idea (Wii U in NZXT Phantom) 56k warning

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I shoved my Wii U into my Phantom, it fits very snugly under the optical drive in a vertical orientation, with the power, HDMI, and sensor bar cables routed through the watercooling holes. This is just a rough draft, so to speak, I need some ideas of ways to really mount the Wii U in the 5.25 bays so that it looks nice and clean. Also, would this cause any problems for anything? The power cable is very close to my PCIe power connectors on my graphics card. And would this harm the Wii U's wireless reception at all?

Inside of a metal enclosure, you will notice a small drop in wireless signal. With it sitting directly behind the front door, which is entirely plastic, there should be no issue at all.

As far as power/signal cabling... don't run any power wires parallel to any signal (audio or data) cables. 60Hz AC will induce a small current in those wires and cause all kinds of hard to diagnose issues (dropped data packets, audio noise- buzzing). Just need to route the power away from other things is all.
