Dumpster score!


Check out what I found in the dumpster at work Once this crappy cold weather goes away, I'm gonna tear into it, and really try and make something unique. I also found in the dumpster an old PII DFI mobo, a PII processor, as well as half of another, another old case(completely shredded). and a crap load of random cables and junk.





I'm thinking bright red with some graphics, a window, and water cooling, plus a ton of lights.

Aside from maybe the I/O ports that motherboard tray is ATX correct? That is one wickedly hefty case.

Yup. Standard ATX. I'll have some pics of the inside up in a few minutes.

Those are Nidec Beta V fans, and that controller monitors temps and voltages, as well as controls the fans, all automatically.

Nice What do those fans push / how is the noise? And where is the temp sensor placed?

48CFM @ 34.8db

The temp sensor, asuming I am looking at the right part, is located in the far back corner (where the white wires are running to in the top down view).

It wasn't our dumpster The owner of the business I work at owns the whole strip, and rents the stores out. He doesn't provide dumpsters for any of them, so anything out there is fair game
