Holy crap, you ain't kiddin'.
I truly did laugh out loud when I saw that fan bracket.....
This makes me wish I still had pictures my Abit NF7-S system in the SuperMicro tower laying around. I had a few ghetto mods on that beast. Used a PCI Slot cover from my case and made a fan bracket for a card cooler and zip tied a fan to my HDD mount. Don't really have to be creative like that these days, most cases are built with those things in mind.
Sat for a while like this.
Finished for now. The Battery was garbage but will not fit anymore with it setup this way. I also need to power supplies now to run this.
Hey you do realize that XFX has lifetime warranty on their video cards right???
I have a thread for this, it's here: http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1642510
but since I think it also qualifies as a ghetto mod, I'll post some of its pics here.
This is how I vent the hot air from the PC to outside the room.
This ghetto brought to you by FrozenCPU.
The contents of this thread are graphic in nature, viewer discretion is advised!!
You just gave me a great idea. Thank you sir
this doesn't come anywhere near the ingenuity displayed throughout this thread but it's dodgy so i guess it has a place here...
due to space limitations (radiator blocking pimary PCIe x16 slot) had to install the card in the 2nd PCIe x16 /3rd PCIe slot. at least with the card lower in the case, only needed to use a small box of paracetamol to prop up the arse of the graphics card.
any one else think it said Crosshairy?
sure the 'V' looks like a 'Y' tho i think there might be a subliminal link to my dusty/furry case?
Not sure if this qualifies, but retired cable tray game/dvd shelving thing.
def qualifies, particularly if you snaked the tray from work
yes, most def. 3 food stamps to you sir.
What does the warning label on the side say?
paint that thing, it might actually look good.
Its just the manufactures specs, saying whats its rated for, what its made of, who make it, ect.
I thought about cutting the ends at an angle, so it lays flush against the wall and floor. But, I have another tray, and plan on making a 'real' shelves unit out of them. Just need to salvage the right material to go across the two rack to make the actual shelves.
I'm a fan of good home cooling -- and the upstairs of my house is not air conditioned (it's too old and we're too poor, so ducts were never installed). So I made a cool desk fan for myself...
Rigging cool stuff is fun (but my puns probably are not)
Nice, Ill give you you 4/5 food stamps because of the lack of ducktape.
Garage big screen. $8 sheet and some rope makes an alright screen for playing SNES on a Benq W600+
Efficient use of all the empty space. I laughed.
I got nearly a whole basement of computer junk from a friend who was moving out of the state.
One of the boxes had 5 old AMD stock heatsinks (had a retention clip similar to Intel's socket 370... can't remember what the AMD equivalant was at the time).
"What can I do with these?" Aluminum fins... seemed kinda decent. And all these little 60mm fans...
Hot glue them all together obviously and make one super-fan!
Size comparison with a 120mm fan I ripped out of a dual P3 Compaq tower server. Really thin, same 120mm wide. The screw holes however are a little too far apart... but works fine with heatsinks that use metal clips. Or a more ghetto means of attachment (tape / rubber bands)
I soldered this stuff up correctly and used some electrical tape.
This thing running at full blast moves a FUCK ton of air. More than that compaq fan does. Running at 5V it's still pretty audible, and still moves a decent amount of air.
Was a fun little project
I'm pretty sure those betas run at 24V which is why the output would be weak. They're also PWM. Nice job though, serious lulz.
Nope, 12v .8amp.
I replugged this fan in... it does infact move more air than my ghetto one. But still... those 4 small fans together are pretty impressive.
I'm loving the ingenuity here .
Had to think of a way to apply more pressure to my HSF since some plastic clips are broken.
Does it work?
Yes it actually worked, still ran hot but a lot better then without it >.<
This server was too damn loud. I had an extra Kuhler water block thingy, the screw holes didn't exactly line up but it was close enough.
This isn't all that ghetto, I was too cheap to buy a bigger case so I made an addition to the top. I had to stuff cardboard under the reservoir because the air pocket kept getting sucked back into the loop otherwise. That's electrical tape around PVC piping holding the radiator and fans up.
I really wanted to lose my case and try something different. I was looking at
tech bench setups when i had the idea to make it myself.
The blue lights are antec 6 led usb strips. i got at frys. Other than getting sloppy on my cutting i think it turned out pretty cool.

These Mods are the best! Very original
I needed antennas for my pci-e wifi adapter , so i made em and saved $$
pic speaks for its self. quick solder to the middle pin..walla
Did you at least measure them so you got the proper wave length?
measurements aren't ghetto !
Not sure how Getto this is..But this is my new res for my chiller setup I'm building..
Not sure if I posted this. I have a portable USB drive that did not come with any way to power it. If I use a spindle drive it draws too much power from the USB and often fails to spin up. So I modified the cable to inject 5 volts into it with more amp capacity.
I ended up having to redo it as there was a short and it would reboot the computer if the cable is moved the wrong way. It works better now and actually looks better.
