Right, I recently bought an Intel I815-E integrated board, in a tiny form-factor (credit to -H- ), and needed something to put it in. Having looked at mini-itx.com and various other websites for a small case, I decided to make my own. Not being G69T, I haven't decided to employ my multi-million pound computer CNC machine, and not being G-nome, I haven't decided to fashion things using aluminum and bent, treated and fiddled-with plexi. No no. This is a ghetto mod. All I'm using are things I've got lying around my room in various boxes. First, the components: On the left, the mobo, equipped with a 1GHz P3 and 512MB PC133 SD-RAM, in Socket 370 form. Then we've got an old 40GB Seagate HD (which will probably get replaced at some point for a more quiet one), a Samsung CD-RW, and an 430W Enermax, with braided cables (mega overkill for this, but it was the only one I had lying around). So, down to work. I'll be using a 6-bottle wine box for this, as they're about a s wide as a PSU, and everything fits nicely. After cutting out a hole for the backplate in the bottom; I set to work attatching the mobo to its home in the bottom of the box. No fancy mobo trays or anything here, just some nuts and bolts: And here we have a couple of pics with the mobo mounted: Top down: View of back panel: It looks like the mobo sticks out from the back, but rest assured that it's pretty flush. Next came the tricky part - mounting everything else. The idea is, if you look at this picture; To have the PSU just above the mobo, with the exhaust fan a couple of inches above the mobo itself, the HD right behind all this (in the 1-inch or so space between the back of the mobo and the box edge) in a vertical position; and then, finally, the optical drive mounted on top of the PSU. "But Krikkit!" I hear you cry, "Won't the PSU just bend the box where you screw it to the cardboard, because it only has holes at the front?" Aha, this is why we have the Optical drive above the PSU. The optical drive is almost exactly as wide as the box, meaning I can use all 8 screw-holes to suspend it into the 2 side-panels. Then all we need to do is attatch the PSU to the Optical drive with some kind of cradle to stop it falling down, and the job's a good 'un, so to speak. Well, continuing in our theme of not using anything that isn't in the room already, I decided to use a PCI blanking plate, cunningly holed, to hold it up. Let me show you what I mean; Once the hole was made (with a hammer and a screwdriver, no *****-whipped dremelling going on here), we had a perfect solution: The next job is shortening the PSU cables, followed by mounting, then sealing the puppy up. More soon. Thoughts? Comments?
