  1. Stock cooler make to much noise, so i remove him and add Cooler Master fan, also slow down rotation speed 50% (BIOS option). Now northbridge and cpu is cooled without noise:
  2. Inside case not so much space, so i made 2,5 inch HDD holder from plexiglass and HDD fit just perfect. Also added internal bluetooth dongle:
  3. Received PicoPSU so small and so good..... but wait, where is P4 connector ....after little PSU modding and case semiassebling, system is ready for test run.
  4. Assembled LED lighting for 2 USB ports on front panel: Atached USB port (with rivet) to side panel:
  5. LCD and sensor power button attaching to front panel with hot glue. Successful Power button and LCD test (with Atmega) :
  6. Yes i know about that solution, but i can't use internal usb header because i use that port's for front panel usb. Also using usb for LCD is complicated on LinuxOS (LPT and linux much easy for me).
  7. For different usable information i use 4x20 character LCD. Standart solution use LPT port is acceptable for me but external wiring not. So there come's idea make internal LCD port with pin to pin wiring Ups, where is old good LPT port Here come's new LCD port
  8. For power on/off i use unusual own design touch sensitive button with LED lighting. There are two lighting colors for two modes: Power off/hibernade and Power on/standby. Power off/hibernade mode : Power on/standby mode :
  9. Next step is electronic part. Important thing is PSU, and there is 2 choices: buy PicoPSU or create my own PSU I choose to get more experience building psu's and spend less money. My PSU design is based on buck-boost controllers with max. power ~80W (enough for Atom). Mobo with created-assembled power supply start like a charm. After deeper test i measured to big voltage spikes and was disappointed because i don't have time to fight with them. Also i think that overall looking must be much better with PicoPSU so ordered that small good thing. Experiments with own design PSU:
  10. Cutting top and bottom cover: Added special mobo holders:
  11. Preparing front panel for LED lighting: Gluing transparent epoxy - look's like plexiglass:
  12. S.Steel is still hungry and eats last useful diameter drill bits so back panel drilling i leave for later time. Next step is aluminum profile assembling for sides from smaller profiles to get desired case length. Profile example: Assembling idea: Gluing with Epoxy: Painting:
