Hello bit-tech

Final Gallery :
Quote:






















First, if you have the feelings that's it's a 4 years old child who speak it's normal because i'm french and my english is very approximate

Also I want to specialy thanks my sponsors

- Prolimatech who gave me their support with their Samuel 17 CPU cooler


please visit : www.prolimatech.com



- Linitx also join my project by sending me a great picoPSU with an AC/DC adapter.
Thansk a lot Chris for all your advice ! (If you want to create your own tiny computer or your car pc, this is THE adress )



please visit : www.linitx.com



- Kingston also accepted to join my project by sending me one of their high performance SSD : the HyperX 120Gb and one ram kit 2x2Gb HyperX Genesis


www.kingston.com




This project is based on the Apple Cube, some photos of mine I won on eBay





As you can see, the cube is scratched, so the external design gonna change a lot to hide these scratches

That's all, next post i'll show you the disassembly of the cube

I continue with the hdd support, on the back of the MB tray

the cut lines




cutting






bending






the HDD ready (@1080p haha ... )




the mb (the real !) fix on their tray and here ...

the position of the IO Panel is'nt aligned with the I/O of the MB ...

I can't use a "normal" IO panel, because the "normal" positon is always a little more outside than the mb, i think i'm gonna create my own panel

and the HDD on the back


one overview


That's it !

Oh that looks really cool.

Are you planning on sticking with the stock cooler just minus fan or are you heading down the 3rd party route?

I try with google traduction to understand your message but I think google isn't enough geek

I'm not sure it will answer your question but i'll install the Samuel 17 fanless on my i5-760 @i3-540. If i can i'll put a slim 120mm fan, but I must be careful with the future position of the slim slot-in.

Good answer ?

Hello everybody,

first, thanks a lot for your posts, I realy appreciate !

@NoobNeb: about the 7750, I think this card is too powerfull for a htpc (I must be carreful with the consumptuion) and if I can I prefer a single slot card for the space. I plan to use a GT430 or GT520, but if you have any other idea for the card please let me know !!

@John: sorry for your lost, I wouldn't be in your shoes
