Description

This was a quick build of parts I had laying around, the motherboard, CPU and 4 gigs of ram were a co-workers that didn't know if they worked. The rest are spare parts or were castoffs form other upgraded PC's. The only real cost was for the toolbox and a some time with a Dremel.

It has been tested with Bad Company 2 and works well. This isn't for hardcore gaming but will probably sit around my office for grab and go box that is far sturdier than most cases. I need to install a power button, currently I short the pins to boot it up. Going to install a full retail copy of Windows 10, incase it does die, I can transfer it without issues.

How do you open the case if the screwdriver is in the toolbox?

So did you use a Dremel or a beaver to cut those holes? ;)

The new Beaver by Dremel!

It was cut quick and dirty, late one night, most of the cuts took less than 20 minutes. I did have to open up the GPU slot when I finally install a GTX 660 SC (not pictured).

nice tool box :P

you should probably take care of the exhaust fan or cpu fan because they are fighting over air in the position theyre in

It has been corrected. The fan was originally for drawing air away from the stock cooler. When the new cooler was install there was a fight, some might say...a shop...vacuum. When I fixed it, Ny-lock nuts to prevent loosing too.

great! what CPU cooler is that?

Corsair A50, it's older. The A50 "only has 3-8mm heat pipes" according to a reviewer, max TDP is around 130w. It's a Monster. Originally the build was to be X58 based with a 3.2ghz Intel W3570 Xeon which had no heat sink/fan. Unfortunately,that motherboard was bad. (Side note: it would have been too wide for this tool box)

How did you make those holes ?

  • 44 months ago

Very, very carefully. They are 120mm fan grills by Silverstone. Microcenter has them by the fans. I was going to cut grills by hand but these look so much better and have a finer mesh.

Nice, I never thought about drilling into cardboard to use as a stencil / template

It can save drilling by sensitive electronics, use a small screwdriver as a punch. I do light fabrication at work and mounting a circuit board can be tricky, this can be a real handy, man.

Thank you, it was a fun build. The ones pieced together from used/old parts seem more rewarding.
