[Build Log] NES, The little Beast

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys!

So I've had a project for an year now. Trying to fit my PC, inside my broken NES. I'll try to remember to post my progress here. I want to create something small, without removing too much of the pure power.

Workday #1

I stared with removing all of the old ****ty, broken hardware, removing all of the unneccesary plastic stuff with my Dremel. I'm not a experienced modder, this is my first project, please dont forget that. I'm learning by my mistakes ^^


I bought a sheet of plexiglass, I dont remember, but I think it's 3 or 4mm thick. It looks green due to a thin layer of plastic protecting the plexiglass, the plexiglass itself is transparent thumb.gif


I have no idea what I'm doing at this point. But it worked out!


It ended up quite pretty, huh? happysmiley.gif


Workday #2
The stuff I've got so far :
-Asus Z170I,
-Intel i5-6600k,
-2x4GB Crucial DDR4, _
-Samsung 850 PRO 256 GB in raid with 840 EVO 250GB (will be replaced with an M.2 SSD)
-Cryorig C7
-3x Delta Fans
-HD Plex 260W with an HP Firebird powerbrick
-MSI 750 ti

BIG Thanks to Cryorig and HD Plex for their awesome products, this project would not have been possible without these two awesome providers. HD Plex is a manufactor of cases and tiny power supplies, go check them out! Cryorig makes quality products that's easy and time saving to install.

I didnt take any photos of me installing the stuff, I guess y'all know how to build a computer. I'm sorry for forgetting to take moar photos, but this is what I've got :


^ Sadly, I cant use the Cryorig C7 with the low profile fan, I'll have to rely on the Delta Serverfans I've got lying around.


^ Ignore my bad paintjob. I will fix it, I promise! ahahah


^ There's TONs of tons of work left, but it do look quite promesing if you ask me :3 It do fit just perfect inside the NES. The cables will be sleeved and customized to a shorter lenght to make cable management easier and to maximze airflow.




^so far, so good. This with a closed case. Max. 55 degrees celcius, lightly overclocked, low-noise. I think I'm in love with my NES.

To do list :
-Sleeving
-Making it prettier
-Front panels and buttons must be working and functional.
-Installing the new SSD (M.2 500gb. Normal SSDs wont fit)
-Dustfilters

What do you think?

Stay awesome, dont do drugs thumb.gif

Anyone got any ideas for how to apply the dust filters to the fans/case? I'm not sure what I'm ordering yet, I'm thinking about superglue it stuck but that might make dust cleaning hard?

Thanks

This is what i am using - http://www.demcifilter.com/

they have a magnetic ring around them to stick to a metal (ferrous) surface and come with a magnetic peel and stick part you can stick on a plastic or aluminium surface.
They come in a ton of different sizes and shapes as well

I'll take a look.

I did a Fire Strike benchmark, take a look at it here, max temp on 40 degrees celcius ish
