    Silence Of The Fans

    I just want to say that this site rocks!, I been wanting to get my hands dirty and make a cool case for my micro ATX mobo. This is going to be one of 3 computer that I am going to build.

    This computer is just going to be a media station I am building Hannibal a 1000GB storage server and Red Dragon a Xtreme Game Station.

    here are the specs:

    Intel Pentium 3 1.0 GHZ
    PCCHIPS M773MR+ Micro-ATX
    512 MB RAM 133MHZ
    40 GB 2.5" Hard drive
    CD-RW/DVD Slim Drive
    Creative DVD Remote

    I am going for a clean-high tech look the high of the case is going to be 1.5"


    the dimentions H 1.5" L 7.5" W 9.5"

    moddin the Heatsink

    The heatsink is 1/2" taller that the highest point in the mobo so we have to cut 1/2 off of the heatsink.

    Now the heatsink is 1" tall with the fan.

    Since all of you know how to cut aluminum I will not go into the process.

    after I cut the top of the heat sink I mount the fan using afew drops of glue of the four conners of the fan. I put some thermal grease and connect every thing and turn on the pc the temperature sits at a 46C at full load . so no over heating problems even in a 90F weather. I will upload pictures tomorrow for some reason my camera only knows one word ERROR.

    just a sketch like I think I want to build it but then again we all change the design along the way . On the left we have the power button the the power led and the HDD led then we have a volume control(the gray round thingy. we have a small maybe a 2x??? LCD. then we have a connection for earphones and the gray round things are where the IR detectors are going to be one for the wireless keyboard & mouse and one for the remote control. simple yet elengant let me know what you guys think on the arrangement or do I need to add something or remove.


    by the way the cd-drive opens from the lef side, the ram was in the way otherwise I would have put it ontop of the LCD.

    It does seem it would be easier if you just made the case a little bigger.
    try fitting things in using SketchUp. (see my sig)

    I might go to 2" inches but it seems a bit too high. but I would be able to fit a Radio reciver (usb FM)
