    A man whose priorities are clearly in the right place. *doffs cap* :Pirate:

    Quick question though... where are the rest of the bits? You know, the unimportant stuff like PSU, drives and whatnot.

    Needs moar pix.

    The TP-LINK TL-WR1043ND Gets a little too hot for my liking.

    Added small heatsinks..

    So far so good:thumbup::thumbup:

    Obviously there are better ways to actually installing the fan & cable but I'm far too lazy to bother with anything on this router. Running latest DD-WRT:thumbup:

    So you've upgraded the cooling, have you overclocked it?

    I have a TP-Link WR841ND with DD-WRT and honestly, I don't like it... It's a little too advanced for me (i'm a real lazy bastard but yet I have WC :Paranoid:) so i'm trying to get rid of it. Failing so far... :(

    HAHA!!! Agreed :thumbup:

    All it needs is a grille for protection (optional according to the latest ghettospec standards) but it actually looks pretty good.

    I did a similar thing with my Linksys WAG200G with the heatsinks, plus I upgraded the capacitors. Made it a bit more stable and l337 etc. No fans for me, I went and got a Billion before I got a chance.

    This would have to be my all-time greatest Ghetto invention - My power supply load tester. Basically, the casing is just several old PSU cases riveted together. Inside are 50W wire-wound power resistors stuck to CPU heat sinks with some Arctic silver thermal adhesive., and the fans are ultra-high speed Delta fans which move something like 250CFM each, and they are LOUD.

    You're doing it wrong. You can just snap off every third blade so it's balanced again. :)

    I also had the same case, ended up spraying the interior black.
    When I got my 800D I happily destroyed it :)
    I think I paid $80 for it off of ebay?

    Christ, I had the same case too. In fact, a lot of the mods are so similar to what I did. I took the black padding out of the side, kept the door though. Took the LCD out for an Xbox 360 case mod, which never happened anyway. Cut a 120mm hole in the front, BUT, I measured and cut the front bay covers and stuck it behind that. It look pretty good behind the door.

    In fact, I still have that case. By the way, there was a plexi behind the door mesh wasn't there? And the top and bottom LEDs made the cut out glow which I thought was cool.

    Man I bought that was when I was like, 11 or 12. Put my sexy P4 system in there with a 6600TD :thumbup:.
