the only problem i have, is that the laminate on both the "door thingy" and the shelf itself is amplifying the sound the pump makes (seidon 240m mounted as exhaust) and all 6 fans...
currently working on the solution to rectify this situation - mind you, it's not bad, but noticeable...

Stick some Dynamat to the inside of the door... or at a push, you can use this:

Dynamat works quite well. I've used it several times to dampen sound with good results. thumb.gif

For sure, for me it's the best platform of all time.

I acquired terminal illness from trying to help my friend.

1 like = 1 prayer.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
He fried all his hard drives by plugging in a incompatible SATA power cable.

He used wrong screws for the case.

We had to remove and install the mobo into the case multiple times. He probably bent the mobo which caused a connection problem, which prevents the mobo from starting 80% of the time.

I got annoyed and tried to use the iGPU instead of the R9 290, and it doesn't power on.

I gave up.

He is going to burn his case.

Well, there is this home-made VGA extender I made for a briefcase computer build where the PSU was so close to the back of the GPU that a "real" VGA cable could not be persuaded to bend sufficiently to fit into the GPU. I made it by meticulously connecting scrap cables to the DVI-VGA adapter and then to the VGA cable, pin by pin biggrin.gif. In the end the cables were secured with hot glue. The system worked perfectly well for over a year, when the GPU was replaced with one that had native VGA, allowing me to dispense with the adapter, which meant that a normal VGA cable would fit.



Then there is the slightly less homemade-looking mounting bracket I made for my SSDs:




As my Corsair Obsidian 800D case doesn't have any more available hard drive mounts, I had to make this bracket to mount my SSDs. I have four of these in RAID10; one is not shown because it is mounted underneath the black plate that the bracket rests on, just above the power supply. I could not mount them all next to each other as that would obstruct the fan. The mounting bracket was made on my CNC machine, a tabletop model called 3040T.

It has 6mm thick SAN feet glued onto a 4mm solid SAN plate, then to hold the SSDs in place there is a second 4mm SAN plate with slots for the drives and cables routed into it. The drives have glue pads on the bottom so they won't jump out during transport, but these are small enough that it's not too hard to remove the drives. In addition to looking pretty sweet, the bracket ensures that there is sufficient clearance between the drive and the bottom of the case for the power cables to bend without too much tension (similar problem to the VGA cable above, hence the 6mm thick feet). Looking back I should probably have used black opaque plastic for the feet so that the white glue pads holding them in place would not be visible from above, but oh well. (Also red SATA cables... I know... tongue.gif)
