Sounds feasible, though it's hard to judge without better numbers or pictures. There are a lot of impressive micro-ATX mobos these days, and one of those would allow an unobstructed intake of roughly 75mm by 240mm. How much heat are you planning to make? Thanks to all replies, I plan to put fullsiz...

Advice with possible air intakes on chest-PC

Hi, I will be eventually building a PC into a wooden chest that I bought from local antique-warehouse. It's nicely sized, so that i can fit proper ATX mobo and PSU on the bottom of the chest with few centimeters to spare. It has also some room in height being ~23cm top to base. Problem is that I rea...

Re: Swiftech MCP350/Laing DDC, my opinion.

I could just do it with diodes or resistors, but it draws so much power i would need several in parallell. Id also like it adjustable, at least at 12V it makes a difference of 25mHz on the GPU core from 550 to 575, stock is 400mHz. Judging by this statement, You could easily build something with tr...

Just a quick note on grounding your HDD.
