Post your "ghetto rigging" shenanigans - Page 82

post #811 of 7143
Sorry I dont have a pic, but I used to have a Dell office machine that had the flat case so you could set a monitor on top. I added a Geforce back in the day and the case wouldnt shut anymore so it always sat half propped open on the GPU lol! I also had to take a hacksaw to the back to make the dual slot card fit.

I put a piece of cardboard between the mb and mb-tray

Function over fashion. It works! I could zip tie better so mb is straight and level, but for now is sufficient. wink.gif

Man, IMO that's ghetto DANGEROUS!!!!!! eek.gif

Glad to see everything is all good though. wink.gif

Me too. That mount takes ghetto to a whole other level. Kinda taking ghetto mainstream. I like that idea though.

The only reason I don't have a pic of mine is because I nearly set fire to my case fans wink.gif

I was limited on 4 pin molexes and was attaching a retro PATA hard drive to my PC which required 4 pin molex (I use old hard drives for backing up my data). The case fans also required 4 pin molex, except for one of them which could be powered either by plugging it into the motherboard or by 4 pin molex. So I plugged that into my motherboard, saving 1 molex.

But due to cable lengths I had to plug my back fan straight into another fan. the plastic part came off so I had to plug each wire in directly. I plugged the earth into live and live into earth. Turned my PC on.

*smoke* /FFFFFFUUUUU.jpg, my wires half melted. Now however, all my hard drives and fans are working at the same time fine.


TL;DR
Don't plug black into yellow and yellow into black.

I just did some ghetto rigging yesterday. I got my 800D but I wanted to put fans on top for now since I still have to order my water cooling parts. I got some el-cheapo kingston fans from frys, only problem is they have 3 pin AND molex connectors and are super ugly. Solution? Mount fan controller from NZXT phantom on the back side of the case to hide the wires biggrin.gif

Ugly fans:

So lets use this:
2011-09-03_17-08-02_21.jpg

Where should it go?
2011-09-03_17-04-54_819.jpg

I win!
2011-09-03_17-13-00_299.jpg

After that I just tied up the wires neatly. It works great. I used some stand offs that went to something in the past and the spacing was almost perfect for the screw holes.

If this counts as ghetto rigging then here we go:

Decided to get rid of my old fugly case and just make it open-air in a shelf style. smile.gif Much better than earlier.

I drilled around 40~50ish holes in the bottom of my case to mount a 120mm Fan there, Until I could get a dremmel to cut a hole out there.
