Thank you!! The changes on the inside are pretty radical. Some images are coming up hopefully before the weekend

Thank you to Josefin and Ted at Gigabyte who believe in my work, and who have provided this motherboard to my latest project. The colour scheme matches perfectly, and all of the functionality I need for a HTPC is there.

This SFX PSU SX600-G has been entrusted to me by Marie at SilverStone. Too much power for this rig, but if I ever upgrade my GPU to something more power hungry, then I have it covered

That SilverStone PSU is fun too! It's always surprising how small they are

Thank you to Inet and OCZ who have provided an OCZ ARC100 240GB SSD to this project!

Daniel at Inet has been really supportive with helping me by contacting OCZ and acquiring a sample of OCZ's legendary ARC100 SSD, which have been tested to run at least 5times their rated limit. Also, the build quality of this SSD is solid featuring an all aluminium chassis.

A powerpacket of a discrete graphics card, the EVGA GTX750Ti 2GB ITX looks the part, and fits perfectly (literally - physically!). Not to mention it is powered by the PCIE lane, so there is less cable clutter helping the aesthetics of the project!

Hope to get in the RAM soon, then I will have everything that I need to get the PC up and running. Some design and modding will come later in the week as well!

Update 3
PSU shroud fabrication



Hello and welcome my friends! This update is long overdue! I wish to have had all of the hardware photographed and posted in the build log before I got on with the real modding, but it seems that I might have a late sponsor wishing to provide some RAM to this glorious project! The communication is taking a while, so I thought that I would just reserve a post in the thread and edit that once I get the RAM in.

Well, this update is me fabricating a PSU shroud. This design process is just firing from the hip, and finding something that I am happy with on the spot as opposed to the meticulous planning and 3D rendering that I have been known to do. This is because the work computer is a piece of crap and unusable, and most of my free time I have to mod is actually when I am at work (ironically haha!).

I wish to talk you guys through the design process to near completion!


Version 1 of the shroud was with the PSU being at the bottom of the chassis, and the shroud being tall so that I could mount an SSD and do something cool with the sleeved cables. Although I liked this design, I thought that it would make the inside seem very cramped considering that it takes up a third of the inside space.

Version 2 of the shroud was created with the thinking that the PSU would be attached to the front panel, lifted up from the floor of the chassis. This is so that full GPU would have been able to be used in this chassis. Then I created this version of the shroud which went all the way to the floor anyways which defeated the purpose of moving the PSU in the first place.

It is really exciting to play around with placing the parts in different areas of the chassis, as one can open up so many new possibilities to improve on the original design or layout. At one point I was going to install dual 120mm fans in the bottom, just because I could.. I decided not to do so for the sake of clean design, and as this PC is such a power easy beast then I do not need the extreme cooling solution.

Version 3 of the shroud is with the PSU back on the floor (indecisive much?) and a small shroud that covers just the unit itself. I had the PSU rotated so that the cables would come out of the side of the shroud and back up to the motherboard. I didn't like this version though as it was the version 2 shroud cut to size and bent to fit. It didn't really sit flush with the front panel, and the black mesh didn't work with the overall theme.

Version 4 - The final version. This version is perfect Sits great, it is flush, cables show great, all brushed... Mmmm

What do you guys think?

I have made sooo much more progress already to show, like a new power button, custom cables, new case feet and much more, and will get some more updates out for your reading pleasure as soon as I have the time! Stick around

Oh boy ... you're on it again What else to say, then ... it looks awesome! I love that cage you made for the PSU, although I kind of liked the first version the most. I might have tried to put cut-outs where the VGA would be colliding with the first version of the cage.
