Attila,

Truely inspirational, very few people would take a break from a mod with a mod.

You have the eyes and the hands of a master, and this is another oldnewby masterpiece.

Nice to see you again in a project, better yet in a HTPC.
I was wondering, isn't this a good time to update your guides at your personal home page? I am sure that people here would love to see that happening!

Pleaaaaaaase?

BTW, I saw ARRAKIS, the I was mentally saying:
"Planet Arrakis, land of sand. Home of the SPICE..."

I didn't know that there was another meaning for "Arrakis"...

Cheers mate!
Thanks Yemerich. Yeah I know I've been lazy in regards to the guides. As soon as I can find some spare time I'll add to it.

Thanks Wayne and quizz kid.



Started mounting components to the underside of the chassis. The TV card was simply screwed into position on the side of the chassis and a small plex block was made to secure the open end that usually fits into a slot in the motherboard tray.
For the hard drive, a plex mounting was made to secure the drive in two places to the chassis.







Then the OD was put into place to see how much room was left.



And another 15mm can be shaved off the height.



So the sides are trimmed down.





And some braces fitted to the sides.



And another to the lower rear.



Here the OD needs to be mounted in a way that lets it sit inside the chassis for fitting to the shell. And then it needs to be able to be lined up nicely with the front/top panel.



Because this part is small and does not need to handle a lot of load, it will be made from 1.6mm sheet.



So some slots need to be made for this part to be adjustable.



A few 2.5mm holes are drilled and the rest of the slot made with a hacksaw blade and files.





A couple of holes are drilled/tapped into the side braces for fixing and adjusting.



And now, after the OD is fixed to the mounting plate, it will be able to slide in and out.





And looks as if bracing for this part won't be necessary. (at this scale 1.6mm is really thick and strong. ).

OMG, that's brilliant mate ! Each update is a real pleasure to read. I'm looking at how you build this thing since I'm going to build one soon (but more elec/dev lab oriented). Very interesting.

Keep up the good job

I keep trying to think of my own version for nice strength supports than the ones you been adding lately in your projects & nothing better comes to mind without getting unpractical so you lead the way & I'll adopt the technique for future projects where extra support is needed, it's a simple & great use of materials & works & looks good .

Anyhow loving this & very nice work on the slots on how you did them .

Very compact and neat, just enough room for cables.
I like the TV card support and HDD under plexi shot is beautiful.

Great work overall

Wow looks really good as always. Looks like you don't need to use thick material to make things look good.

Nice work! I'll be watching this one closely, as I may be doing something similar with a mini ITX in the near future.

Cheers

Thanks and sorry for the lack of progress but this year has been very bad, health-wise. Just when I feel terrific and get stuck back into life, I get knocked off my feet again.
But I'm feeling optimistic and should have an update soon.

At the start of the year I played around with this board for a while to see if it could actually run 'fanless'. Just performing minor tasks took the temp up to 86 degrees and just resting a fan on the heatsink dropped this temp dramatically to usable levels. So I've decided to run a fan on this even though this kills my ambitions of a totally silent machine. I'm thinking I can play with the fan speed once the build is complete and with a shell, intake grille and filter, this should dampen the db's still further. I'm actually hoping it will be very close to silent.
I'd be inclined to swap that HDD for an SSD if one of your main goals is silence.

Awesome build thu, keep up the good work
