Love the re-use of the G5 bulge. I have half a dozen of those pieces hanging around the house and workshop unused and unloved.
I hope this isn't your last build for a while Neil. Always enjoy reading them and seeing your latest thoughts.
Yes this thing is made up of mostly G5 PM raw material (lowers the project cost) and is a great example of "doing it my way".
I was tempted to de-solder the power connector on the MSI GPU and solder in a cable. If the card had been a year old that is what I would have done, however being new I thought that I would not void the warranty so soon.
What do you think about the industrial look of the countersunk flat head screws? It will be interesting to some and not acceptable to others I imagine.
More to follow.
I have been enjoying all your mods, since the first ones. It's always nicely finished.
Came across this one, after reading the HiRise hack from DJ_aris (and because I'm trying to find builds with the GA-B85N)
I love the way you designed your case, just as you need, without extra space. And the tiny footprint. It looks like a FT03 Mini, but personalised.
It's good that you turned the PSU to suck fresh air. It seems better that way.
Did you place a dust filter?
How is it in terms of noise level?
