Let me allow to introduce, ahm, myself. That's my king cool Website-Server, LAN-Router and Proxy. Old fashioned K6-2 300 Mhz, 64 MB RAM, 1 Gb HD, running Windows 2000. The funny thing is that it's located inside of a wardrobe, none of my fellows can even hear it there :-) To have at least some air flow, I had to put the PSU on the top of it, otherwise it would have been blowing against the door. It's about to host three websites and will approach 50 to 80 hits per day (mine, explosionsgefahr.de and oestberlin.de)
This is the first casemod i have ever done, did it just for fun. I thought my firewall could use some color so i started painting it then i found out about casemodding so i decided it needed some fun light too. I used plastic-fiber to make an F (from FireFly) on top and put in a lightbulb with a rotating colordisc so it kinda look like fireflies ??? LOL also a few leds are behind the frontplate which blink on and of once in a while :-) so nothing spectacular this MOD, and no heavy cooling or that kinda stuff cause the machine don't need that since it is just a P75 operating a firewall from a floppy disc.... but it was just fun to do :-)
This is my first build and mod... Blue Neon Next.. Abit KT7A-Raid, 1.2 MHz 266 FSB T-Bird @ 1.333 MHz, Thermaltake Volcano II, 384 MB PC-150 Kingmax Tiny BGA CAS2, Hercules 3D Prophet II Pro 64, Philips Acoustic Edge Sound Card, 30gb IBM 7200 ATA100, Plextor 12x10x32, 330w Enermax PSU, Lit Glow Blue Neons. Panaflo fans all around.. Check out my web site for more coolness...
This is my first case mod. It's an Alienware-like case with the hydraulic sliding door. Removed the vertical vent that practically served no purpose and cut a hole for 2 80mm Panaflo fans. To make the design more integrated, I have the window installed with a corner blended into the space of the fanholes. Specs: MSI K7T266 w/RAID, 1.33 266FSB, Dragon ORB, 512MB TwinMos DDR CL2, Maxtor 2X30GB 7200rpm (RAID 0), Maxtor 40GB 7200rpm, Ricoh 20X10X40, Hercules Prophet III, SB Live! Platinum 5.1, etc... etc...
I've started but by no means finished. INSIDE---- 1G T-bird@140X10.5=1470 on an AbitKT7A, with an AlphaPAL6035 with home made 80mm-60mm adapter. An old SuperSoket7 HS/Fan on the GeForce2GTS. a home made power rail mad from a 44way IDE plug to acomidate all the fans. 320Meg megmemory. OUTSIDE From Top 2 bottom---- Hitachi GD2500 DVD player, Memorex TwelveMaxx1032 CDWriter (12X10X32), Temperatue gadge with the sensor filled down and wedged between the proccesor and HS.ambient case temp on the left and the processor temp on the right. 2 Playstation joypad converters (theese are really the best to use in game) with the ability to read the PSX memory card.
This is my faithful Hewlett Packard NetServer E60 in it's new home... a 4Q full tower. The specs are: HP NetServer E60 mobo w/integrated HP 10/100 NIC and dual channel Adaptec Ultra2 SCSI controller, 2xP3-550, 512MB ECC PC100, Voodoo5 5500 AGP 64MB, SB Live! MP3+ 5.1, 2x9.1GB Seagate Ultra2 SCSI HDD, 1x10GB Western Digital IDE HDD, 52X SCSI CDROM, 10x6x32x SCSI CDRW, 1xHP SCSI 4/8GB Travan Tape, 1x300watt PSU, 1x250watt PSU, 16 fans total including the processors and video card. Woohoo!
Color case case with a 120mm and a 92mm blow hole. The 120mm intake is a Panaflo. The 92mm exhaust is a Sanyo-Denki. This is a AMD Duron 700 on an Abit KT7. I had a Duron 600 @ 1.2ghz but I was running a cheap power supply and it literally blew up and took the CPU with it. Needless to say I now have a 450watt Enermax :) This chip will not over clock!! :( It is a shame since I am cooling it with an 85watt TEC and a Hedgehog with a Delta 38cfm fan. This fan is directly in line with the 92mm exhaust hole. Therefor it sucks all the hot air out of the case. Under load for an hour case temp is right at room temp and the CPU is 50 degrees F :) Also notice the fan bus I made :) My video card is a Voodoo 3 AGP running at @185mhz with a blue orb and heatsinks on the memory. Rest of my system includes: ethernet card, BOCA research modem, Phillips sound card, 256mb Mushkin RAM, Ricoh CD-R/W. This is my first case mod and I am really happy with it. Just a note: I forgot to wipe the finger prints off the front of the case. It looks much better in person.
The Quest for Silence. 1) Area above PSU, covered w/foam (for sound insul) w/ambient thermometer. 2) Modified front fan assembly to accept Nidec gamma radial blower. 3) The Alpha on the Athlon CPU; still looking for 60mm radial blowers for it. 4) Two radial slot fans pump the air out to keep the CPU and GeForce cool. 5) The external setup shows what everything looks like HARDWARE: Athlon 700, 512mb PC133 ram, GeForce 256 w/tv-in and out, DVD, 16x cd-writer, 19" monitor.
