Well, time for a new project after ages of no modding This time i'll be building a HTPC. So the design will be very clean. No Fance LED FAN's, fluorescent tubing or whatever. No, it should have the same look as my onkyo amplifier & CD player. I think that'll look awesome together. So generally it's all about the front panel which should have the same power button, brushed aluminium, and maybe i can find an extra Onkyo logo? During all the years of modding, i collected a lot of parts, fan's, casings, power supply's, aluminium, mesh etc. I want to stay as much as possible with those parts instead of buying new. It's cheaper and helps to clean up my garage Let's roll.. Part of the stuff i had laying around. If you're wondering what happened to the Praetorian, check this PSone display, might be usefull First thing to do after disassembly was shortening the case. It was 44cm high, my amplifier is 43,5cm wide. Between the motherboard tray and PSU was some space which was unused. I removed that part, and had to move this rail 1CM upwards. This rail holds the motherboard tray. Here it's done. You can see that the PSU hit's the backplate directly. Original here. Tray is held together in the 2 rails. After all those years i lost the plate which holds the PSu. Well, lets make a new one. As you can see at the fan on top: I'd also reversed the PSU. The air goes in at the side of the case, instead of the case itself. Looks good Fits like it was stock A small part was then cut away to create some space for the sidepanel ... ehh... bottom panel which i can bolt into that nut. Here I've bend the panel, fits perfectly along the motherboard tray. Then i played a bit with the possible positions of HDD's, optical, pump, radiator, PSone screen etc. I think it will be something like this. Preferable with the optical in the middle, like my CD player has. That's it for now. I've made some more progress, but done enough for today. Wasn't sure if the 120mm rad. could handle the CPU (E6600) and VGA(simple ATI x1650). I think it can, maybe not with the lowest temperatures and high OC. But i'm aiming at silence, not speed. Anyway, i have some aluminium cooling profiles and copper HDD coolers. I will combine those to some kind of passive radiator.
