Updated 4-22-11 Another HTPC MOD (Do people still have 56K?) - Page 2

Here are some pics of the fitment issues


Here is the problem with the barb on the rad.







HDD cage painted, I think it looks MUCH better now.




I will be making my own case for the PSU as it is far to long to allow my vid card to fit. I will make it out of plexi and paint it black.










Easter bunny snagged me early today but im hoping after the "festivities" I can get back to fabbing the new PSU case.

Dear Mr. Fragile Ego,

Im sorry you took my innocent comment the wrong way. I was not insulting your skillz as a shutterbug, i was not insulting your pictures in your thread. I meant fully to ONLY comment on the comment of "sorry for crappy pics" that seems so rampant on here (and elsewhere), maybe people feel inferior to MDPC type pics? Anything is possible with little to no money, ask Gus Mahon. Oh wait, you cant, he's dead.

Anywho, im sorry if i hurt your feelings and i will try to behave better in the future.

Sincerely,
Mt. Troll

Weather may delay me a bit. We had some nasty storms roll through tonight and looks like we may be without power for up to 72 hours. At least I still have the googlenets on my phone so I don't have complete withdrawal.

Well now they are saying no power here for 5 to 7 days. This sucks. Had to drive an hour to stock up on non perishables. No one really knows the extent of what's going on because almost no media here right now. I know the death toll is climbing. And to think I was driving through the storm that leveled entire towns and didn't even know it....although I felt it wasn't good when trees and pieces of peoples houses fell from the sky... I will pick this mod up as soon as power restores. Thanks for hanging with me guys.

Nice work. I did a mod on the same case when it first came out years ago. I ran into the same problem in regards to space with the radiator. I opted for mounting the RAD to the outside with fans on the inside.
