Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm starting the same time my next project.

It is a converted Coolermaster CM 690th.

Many thanks to

Cooler Master that I have the case made ​​available.

The name is the motto.

Here is an example picture of what it means.

So actually the case remains in its original condition. I cut hald many holes in, so that one sees on the hardware.

I do sometimes a small list of what is planned now to this:


  • [*:lswwhoqd]Cut case back of a corner, as well as a fan is to be halved, so the CPU also sees cooler because some fins and a heat pipe broached.
    [*:lswwhoqd]A memory is reduced by half, but that nothing can happen to be ground off the contacts, so the only the PCB is inserted.
    [*:lswwhoqd]with a graphics card the same thing happens.
    [*:lswwhoqd]A HDD is cut by.
    [*:lswwhoqd]Up front a DVD drive is installed, the will also get a cut. Whether the work is still is unclear. If not, we are including a second installed that will go then.
    [*:lswwhoqd]the ATX cable I want to cut through, you can see the cross section of the cable bundle. Since I will then concealed a 2nd Attach. possibly laterally from the connector. If necessary solder but even if not I am the friend of it.
    [*:lswwhoqd]what I will do yet, I decide then if I fall over her. Maybe yes come from you or any good tips.

Here are some pictures of the untouched state.

Today I finally started with the "Cross-Section" Case.

First, I've spent half an tape roll to figure out where I cut holes that clean: D

Then it was fate. First of coarse with the hacksaw, and then continues with the separating grinder. I also made a movie that I'm ready but not until tomorrow.

Before the question comes on ... the power supply gets a perspex paneling.

In the front hole is then later a drive that is also open. This should also work then.

The other cover was indeed such an ugly stickers on it. I did not get off. But I was still a 2nd defective 8800GTX lying around. So from then stole the cover.

To create later in the motherboard is not shorted, I sanded the pins on the PCB.

Poor GTX :shock:

Not sure if it's gonna work very well now :D

Good work until now, I like the idea. Will you use the IGP or another "full" gfx card?

I also have a suggestion for you: you could paint in red all the cut edges to highlight them.
