    Cool I AM 1337! (great pics)

    It's almost done, I'm working on the lighting and the external power supply will be here this week. It only weighs 10 pounds and it's outer dimensions are 12 x 10 x 6.

    I used screws instead of glue so I can change any of the individual panels when I upgrade. In a few more weeks it will have a matching 1337 LCD monitor.

    I RULE

    Nice! Keep it coming!

    Lawrence: No. No, man. ****, no, man. I believe you'd get your ass kicked sayin' something like that, man.

    Hehehe, I'll have the lighting done this afternoon and I'll add more pics by tonight. I LOVE THIS!
    I've only been planning it for the past 4 months...

    I'll also have a tutorial available soon.

    I've got a recommendation to make it all look a bit cleaner and prettier. Paint the motberboard rack. It appears that that's the only thing that looks too normal.

    I love the rest of it! Is that a laptop cd rom in there?

    Countersunk allen bolts would look sweet.....but the rest of it looks great....

    What about chroming, or nickel plating the mobo rack? Nickel plating is relatively cheap

    Thanks guys!
    These pics are of the final test-assembly to make sure everything fits. Next comes the real trick-out stuff.
    I haven't gotten around to painting the motherboard tray because I delayed it until knew it was cut down to the right size. I had another one which I already painted black. But, I found this one worked better and took up less space. I will be reassembling it when the lighting is added, at which time I'll paint the tray.

    Since I'm using a laptop hard drive (which has a breathing hole on-top) I am NOT going to be adding a HDD window. Once the lighting pics are taken you'll see why I don't need one anyways...

    I'm too cheap to buy EL cable so all of the lighting will be from an 8,000mcd blue LED with a softener lens.

    This whole tiny PC (so far) cost $200.

    awsome!! I like the laptop cd-rom (same as me). If you ever was to do a HDD mod some people will tell you it's EXTREMLY dangerous. It might be, but from my experience i had the cover off for at least 5 or 6 minutes in a room that wasn't that clean and it worked fine when I put the top back on.

    Oh yea and thanks for the sponge bob avatars i'll have to use the fighting one :-D

    Pick you some of this, they have black 10ft lenghts at Radio Shack which are perfect for those wires.

    I just bought some heatshrink to put on all the power cables. The external power supply is pretty tiny and will be in-line with the power cord.

    I should have more pics on saturday, IF I can find the resistor I need for the lighting before then.

    In order to be used with regular IDE cables, laptop hard drives require a 44-to-40 pin IDE adapter which supplies power to the drive and adapts the cable standard.

    Laptop CD-ROMs require a different type of adapter.

    I bought my IDE adapter at a local computer store, the CD-ROM adapter was ordered from baber.com

    I'd go with water cooling if I didn't have such a desire to have mobile computers. Water is much heavier than Air

    Both of my computers were made to be moved in one trip. My main Computer can be slung over my shoulder while my arms carry the monitor. My second PC will be able to be carried with one hand, and the monitor (once finished) will be slung over my shoulder.

    Plus, water cooling is too expensive for a cheap-skate like me.


    P.S. Aaaaaaah crap, nobody in town has a wide enough selection of electronics parts. My case lighting will be waiting for completion until the order arrives. Atleast that gives me some time to get the tutorial finished...
