CFW-6.20 PRO-C Permanent Patch for some apps
FiiO e07k as headphone AMP

The psp itself has a pretty clear sound but it doesn't have enough power to handle 64ohm headphones. With AMP the sound quality is just incredible for such old console.
I think I will buy one of those cable remote controls to allow changing tracks without pulling the console out of a pocket. But I will cut off the 3.5mm jack because the cable is low quality. I just need the controls.
That is some creative insanity. I've got a psp go with pro c 6.20 permanent, pretty good SNES machine.

Well, I ordered a $1.6 USB wifi dongle off eBay two weeks ago and it came in today. Plugged it in, connected to my router, 17% signal strength and it worked like crap, took it nearly five minutes to load Google. mad.gif

So I did some thinking and decided that I need a can.


I had a can of peas I used for screws which was perfect for the job, I already made a hole for the USB before I took that pic. Then I drilled two more holes to screw in a USB header from an old case to it, and this is how that looked.

And yes, those are leopard-pattern sheets on my bed. cool.gif

With the dongle inserted.

Removed the plastic case from the damn thing which yielded a small boost in signal strength.

Here's the finished product inside the ermm... case! biggrin.gif

Canned wifi, the best kind there is. thumb.gif This thing went from 17% signal strength to 45%, it's now almost as fast as the wifi card in my desktop.


By the way, that fan on the CPU heatsink is the latest addition, there was an 800RPM 120mm GlideStream mounted there before. Now I have a 2000RPM Arctic F8 PWM Pro shoved into a shroud of some cheap piece of crap Chinese fan that died, just ripped out the fan's motor and blades along with the motor supports and left the shroud. I broke the frame on the F8 a while back and now I wanted to silence the cardboard PC with it, that stock AMD fan from those 125W coolers is screaming fury. But I had no zip-ties to fasten this thing onto the heatsink and it's Easter, no stores are open, so I had to sacrifice an old work boot and tie the fan down with it's shoe lace.

The fan shroud is tied to the heatpipes and it's pressed nice and firm against the heatsink, the shoe lace is also pressing the F8 into the shroud so it doesn't fall off which is a double win. Works better than the stock 5000RPM fan too, CPU got 5C cooler. smile.gif

I like that, not only did you try this, but it's a viable solution. I need to keep that in mind.

EDIT: The antenna, of course.

i just had a quickie idea for supercooled rig.

Put your mobo inside of airsealed lunchbox, cut out hole for cpu cooler on the cover and make a seal there too, then put it inside of freezer.


pro paint sketch by me:

You would be better of hacking the freezer and using its coolant and radiator.

Well, it was easy and inexpensive to make so I took a shot and it worked surprisingly well, the only hard part was punching holes in it for the USB and screws. No matter what anyone says, holding the blade of a swiss army knife against a tin can and hitting the handle with a speaker is not a very good idea.

By the way, my first try at improving the signal strength was using a cigarette box with a cut-off top and a hole in the bottom to push a USB through. That thing got 36% signal so I went all-out and made it out of a tin can thinking bigger is better, and I was right. If wanting the dongle to remain small/mobile, a cigarette box, or anything with an aluminum wrapping, can be used and be quite effective at boosting the signal while remaining small, a tin can is all around much better but it's more of a stationary solution.
