Before starting, I'm going to thank oliverw92 for the idea of a tiny watercooled computer
. What I'm going to do is similar in a few ways, but different in others. First huge difference, I'm not going to be fabricating the case myself, mainly due to the fact that I'm not that good at it and I don't have that many tools. I decided to start on this because yesterday, I finally got a dremel (like tool) yestarday
. You veteran case modders are gonna say about time
. The next difference, also big, it will house a 4870x2. Yeah its 10.5 inches long, yeah the case is like 12", I'll make it work
Anyway, the starting case will be a CheckerCube 2215 I got from another OCN'er. I'll be using the same motherboard as in project MiniMe as well, the ZOTAC GF9300-G-E. I'm going to try and implement a 850watt ATX power supply into this project... Crazy? Yes. Implementable?? If you nice people help me a little
. Enough with the words, here comes the pictures!
Here's the victim to the project
The radiator will be like this, maybe it will have to be not on the surface and exhaust air out the side instead of into the case since the CD drive will essentially block all the air coming out of the radiator.
See this video card? Take a guess at what it is. It's broken, but I have another one in my current sig rig
The bottom CD Drive frame is in the way
This won't run a 4870x2, hence the need for my 850w to be in here. I'm considering really long case feet with space for the power supply underneath
This won't be that fast of a moving project. The motherboard won't come until around after Thanksgiving probably (Black Friday
). I will also have to trade my D5 for a DDC here on OCN as the D5 won't fit.
