Cool. Nice to hear that you breathed new life into an old computer! One less in the scrap heap.
Haha, no, it's smaller than you're picturing it. That's a 3.5" drive on top--so the entire case is only maybe 7" wide. It's just wide enough for a mini-ITX board, which is 6.7" wide. Thanks for checking it out!
I'd agree with that; there was a Dremel tool and a hacksaw involved.
Thanks! How did you manage that laptop upgrade? Did you find a new BIOS? Nice going, don't fear doing the unusual.
Thanks for looking! I added a picture of the heatsink; sorry, it's not a great photo.
This build also features such high-tech materials as door/window weatherstripping on the fan housing to dampen vibration where it touches the case.
Nice build, and those pics... I guess you really are a photographer. Looks good.
Thanks! It was fun.
Props for photos that don't look like they were taken with a ham sandwich.
