Really cool thread. I have had some really Ghetto rigged things in previous builds, just never took the time to take pictures. Its pretty funny thinking about them tho, cuz they worked for along time.

It's not ghetto unless it's done with duct tape.

I disagree I like to see random stuff from the yard. Example rocks, sticks, mail boxes, old tires.

Blower held in with duct tape, and a piece of copper wire tied to the back of the case. $1 mod that took 7C off my GPU load temp. Win.

All of my fans are held on with zip ties. That's about the extent of my ghetto at the moment.

I do have a ghetto-as-hell DVD drive around here. I took the drive out of a DVD player, popped a housing and bezel on it and stuck it in my machine.

That's before I rewired everything. My case isn't ghetto anymore, but that's how it used to look
