Looking for insight for etched lighted plexi window

28 September 2018 - 03:53 PM

Toying with the idea of etching a design into a plexi case window and edge lighting it but can't seem to find anything that's been done before to help figure out a good way to do this.

Any help would be great.

Dell Vostro 400 case mod

11 September 2018 - 10:07 AM

Well I ended up picking up some extra parts and decided that I didn't want to buy a case but instead to just mod this old Dell case I've had setting around.

So far I have
* Ripped it down cut the front and welded in a 2x120mm fan mount (left over from the side of my tower when I added a window).
* Cut out most of the goofy "drive bay" (2 3.5" drives were mounted to the outside edge) I still need to trim a bit more there but now I think just about any GPU should fit as there is a hair over 13" between the back and the front fan).
* Cut out the built in I/O so I can put in a aftermarket mobo (using old dead parts atm for test fitting).
* Cut out and welded in a filler plate between the mobo tray and front of the case that I'm planning to mount 2x 2.5" drives on.

Let me know what you think and any other ideas. Hoping to get a lot more knocked out this weekend.21025e1358630bf8ace95cf9ff5b787c.jpg5795b065761ae110751e72cb5d61cd07.jpgf50cfdddafd6058cee4a02215d205f59.jpg4dee94dcb629cea432577f1f0b51d899.jpgadde2d70761bbb3ed3bb1f150a3ef63d.jpg973f9f3c863aded7a5da8b00d0ed1423.jpgd7eb230103724cd4bff5a39c6c7489d3.jpg9ca34c5ed7a9594b188118469889bbb3.jpg8bc81cee0599feba131a46f2d941cf41.jpg9a04c32da15ff664b9eb73b8ca03a299.jpgc7dc549947dd1ac1ad31144cf251fbc4.jpg

Wanted to add that this is going to be for my girlfriend to replace the AM1 Athlon 5350 build she currently has that cannot play the games she is now into.

Gpu pcie 6 pin to 8 pin adapters

20 February 2018 - 10:57 PM

Was just given a Zotac GTX770 (regular 2gb version) to replace my HD6870 (1gb) but my psu only has 6 pin cables (modular psu) and I've been looking at adapters and only seem to find goofy looking ones that are around 6" long and will totally muck up my cable management.
Is there any nice short ones? Or maybe sleeved that are not $20+

Could use some ideas getting an old game running

01 November 2017 - 09:11 PM

So while cleaning I found my old copy of Elder Scrolls Morrowind and decided to install it but for the life of me I cant get it running on windows 7. I've managed to install & play Diablo & Diablo II with tho good old install to c:/game and little comparability settings but all I'm getting at best when i try to play it is the screen going black and then acting as if I never opened it.

Any help would be great

WTB laptop 16" screen

11 February 2017 - 11:48 PM

Figure I'd take a shot at seeing if anybody here has a good screen that will work for my (new to me) ASUS ROG G60JX laptop.

The factory screen is a 16" Hannstar HSD160PHW1.

Attached is a pic to show the connector.
