Not sure if this is ghetto or not, but it was fun to do and watch it die when it got too hot after a short while ( passive cooling an Intel ), take a turntable, remove the innards, drop some PC bits in, wire it up and plug it in.....





and finally....

it lived!! ( briefly )

you should have removed the round base on the electric turntable motor and replaced it with a fan...you could have used the same motor and everything...shame it had to die =(

It actually died or just shut off due to overheating?

My ghetto cooling system for my Macbook while folding. If you look closely there is some hammermill paper lifting it up off the desk so it's closer to the level of the house fan. Also my laptop cooling pad with two 80mm fans is in there. Also right in between the cooling and the laptop there are four rolls of cardboard propping of the laptop so I can get more airflow going underneath it. Rig dropped it down from 94C while folding with it on my lap (resulted in a few black screens, lol) to around 78C now.

shut down to Overheating, the PSU was moved outside ( i had to strip it down to get it in the space available to start with ) and the components used were what i had lying around at the time.

Tbh it was a quick idea, took me a day or 2 with other stuff, i wanted to see if it was possible, but using a standard ATX board and any components i could get my hands on wasn't the best options.

I looked into doing it again with a micro ATX board and several other cooling options, using the power on buttons on the turntable for the usual Power on, as well as what you cant see in the limited pictures, was the start/stop turntable buttons actually open the CD drive.

It is a possible mod in the future and if a micro board lands on my lap and another turntable of similar design ( Tech 1210's aren't that viable ) i'll consider taking time to do it again.

I live on the modding rule that i rarely buy anything when modding ( hardware at least! ) and use what is around me for inspiration and use, so who knows?

This was done apprx 4 years ago.

Today I stepped into the world of ghetto modding!

Ok so was looking through the pile of wires on the floor because i was trying to find my cellphones usb but instead i found 3 little blue led fan's (I think they are 60mm) from one of those usb laptop coolers i plugged them into my computers usb and i was like "DUDE THOSE LOOK ****ING AWESOME!!!!!" I ran around the house and found an old molex to sata cable and ran around some more and found the all mighty silvery goodness that we call DUCT TAPE! so i attacked the wires with some scissors and connected the fans to the molex and secured it with some all mighty silvery goodness and hung them from one of the cable management holes and switched it on and i was like " DUDE THAT IS MORE ****ING AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!"
