Had to replace the laser in my xbox 360 and when I put the dvd drive back together the thing that holds the disc tight in the drive didn't really work without making a ton of noise. Brick on top fixes it completely :-)

I could probably use something that looks "nicer" but I really don't give a crap biggrin.gif the brick serves its purpose quite nicely.

I'm fairly new to pc building and molding. Here's my first getho riggin done today. My pc is high on a shelf. I can easily reach the power button but I actually have to get my skinny lazy as up off the chair and push it. So I rigged this semi getho external switch that I'll screw underneath the pc shelf

Got this little harness with leds and a switch for 2$ and a little piece of metal and hot glue

Ps sorry for the cell phone pics. Dslr is out for its annual maintenance

A few more of my "shenanigans"

Light mod: Used LED Strips from WalMart that are typically used for automobiles. 12 bucks for two foot long strips containing 18 SMD LED's isn't bad at all. Simple splice, and wire turned them into a 4 pin molex blessing in disguise.


VRM Fan Mod: This fan was taken out of a $30 AC Inverter I purchased from Radioshack a long time ago whose fuse has since blown. Zip tied into place to push heat up out of the vrm's like a baws.


Rosewill Thor V2 Case Fin Mod: Several modifications were made to my case in order to allow me to use full 25mm thick 120mm fans on my 240mm radiator in push pull configuration. The modifications for which can be seen at the following link with a full instructional.
http://www.overclock.net/t/1436535/240mm-push-pull-rad-with-fins-rosewill-thor-v2

And recently used Zip ties to hole my radiator in push pull since it stripped out from having to unscrew it (oh well, easy solution.)


I'll update with more posts as I remember more mods that I still have pictures of but as of now I believe this is the lot of the ones contained within this tower.
