It would actually be ideal. You still need to figure a way to attach the tray to the top of the case without unsightly screwheads on the outside.

If you intend to use that particular PSU, please let me know. I don't need it, and I would be willing to sell it for $15 paypal. Intel recommends a 145w PSU for that board, but that is with a Typical configuration, and this is all but typical. I think that cutting the CD drive out of the equasion, and using only a 60mm fan (see post about alternate HDD option) it should be just fine. Not to mention you are going with a celeron, and they always shoot really high with these numbers so as not to step on their ... ummm.. .I mean "put their foot in their mouth... "

Considdering the small amount of air that is in that case, a 60mm should adequately exchange the air. If you would like, I can ship the proto to you at this point, as the next logical step is for me to butcher a case I really don't wan to butcher in the name of "Science".

It will work, and it will be a cool hack. Worth submission anyway. You can flip the PSU 90 degrees and put the cord out the back if you like. It will actually require less cutting..

I guess mistakes are what proto's are all about.

(Also, the one I have been hacking up will save you a lot of time, as I have clearanced the top section. It was a real pain in the @ss.)

yeah, if you think that 90W psu is adequate, then I think I'll pick it up from you. Is it any smaller than a 145W? Also, that prototype would be awsome because it would definatly make it alot easier to fine tune a final product if I can.

thanks much.

hehe this reminds me of one of my 3 current intended projects which is to mount a pc inside my old vcr (it'll be old soon)

i could actually just squeeze in a kg7 raid but i think i'll skip that option, the beauty of it is, it's already got a metal plate for the mounting of the board, it's got fascia buttons that will be cool, and an lcd screen I can wire to serial / paralell and write something to control them


damnit i need this job so much!!

i've actually got 2 90w psu's sitting upstairs and they're teensy, came out of compaq crappy things, they're powering 500 cellys with everything onboard, but I dunno if i'm allowed them (they aint mine)

anyway, good luck on the mod!

90 is better than 75, and that one doesn't use a wall wart

Dimm... My area of machining is a little less exciting. I mostly work with surveying systems, that I know very little about. I do know that the pretty red light will hurt yer eyes, though.. *L* Basically, any laser that needs a lense cap should never be pointed at yer face.

Okay, I have one of these things lying around:

















Do you think this would work in place of a 90mm fan?

The slot fan is a GREAT idea. Here's what I'm thinking..

Above the HDD, and below the HSF drawing air of course from the HSF. (Unless you a psychotic, and plan to to a hot drive.) If you use that slim HSF, It will fit great.

Wanted to show you that HSF in action. It is actually shorter than the caps I wrapped the wires arround.

By the way. The clip on that thing is pure hell. Now that's some serious pressure. It's a Vantec HSF, by the way.

thx. well, I'm going to finish hacking the plactic tommorow, and hopefully will have the first generation model done by then. I'm ordering the mobo tonight. where did you say you picked up the hs from? Retail Boxed Intel MO810EAL AKA D810EMO correct?

You can go a little cheaper by ordering the board OEM with retail accesory kit. It's all the same, minus the pretty box. The Heatsink came from bestbyte I think.

As far as the hard drive goes. I'd use a seagate 5400 RPM. The ones wrapped in rubber. They obviously don't get very hot if they can cover the board with rubber.

that link should take you straight to the HSF.

The clip is a real pain. I took the fan off, then put it back on after the heatsink was mounted. The geometry of the thing forces to you "pry" the heatsink on if you don't remove the fan. We all know this is not a good thing with modern fragile cores.

Here's a pic of the seagate HDD's I'm taking about. (Yes, I have a lot of stuff around here. This one is 4gig, and will be the starter drive for the XP 1800+ until I get a larger one.) They still make the rubber wrapped drives.
