[Scratch Build] miniBorder

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

Here is two shots of my actual HTPC. I'll use this as a donor of the mod. It has an Asus AT3IONT-I Deluxe, which is a fully integrated

mITX motherboard. It only need some RAM and a hard drive to work. Even the PSU is integrated. The HTPC's case made of a faulty

Denon DCD-715 CD-Player.

Sorry for the big break. Borderlands 2 have stolen a big ammount of time.

Most of the mod will be as simple as possible. The cooling is mostly for design. It only need to dissipate 50W maximum...

This will be the radiator:


Because it has a very slim base (3,5mm) I decide to mill the routes in an 8mm thick policarbonate plate that will be screwed to the heatsink.


I've made the simpliest design, for remove the air from the water cooling. This will be very important, because the pump is very small:


Actually this was one of the big lateers. I just get it one week ago. (Thanks for the customs...)

Finally, here is the optical drive. At first I wasn't sure whether to have it but I already knew that only a slot-in version could be an option.


Tomorrow I'll start to mill out the policarbonate with a Multi-Tool. I hope it will working.
