â€œRat Packâ€ has been disassembled
to get ready for â€œBlack Ratâ€.
Assembly should start Thursday and be completed in a few days.
I went ahead and cut a 120mm blow hole in top of â€œRat Packâ€ and this small Antec case will now house an old:
ASUS A8N-SLI Premium
Athlon 64 4000
GeForce 7950 GT
2 â€“SATA II 80 GB hard drives
This will be a back up computer to backup the backup computer. â€œRat Packâ€ was a little short lived but it just could not keep its cool. Say good bye to â€œRat Packâ€ and hello to
â€œBlack Ratâ€ â€¦ to be continued â€¦ I hope it will run a lot cooler?
I used a 4.75" hole- saw
and cut a hole in a piece of .75â€ ply-wood and clamped the ply-wood to the top of the case to keep the saw blade from chattering and then cut the hole in the top of the case.
PS - I had to off-set the blow hole in "Rat Pack" a little so it would fit in the drive bay. Edited by Tweeky - 2/15/11 at 9:44pm
