    Cool story bro.
    See previous instructional post re. attaching pics.
    ;)

    EDIT: From an engineering standpoint, nothing about the phrase "SSD as heatsink" is good. In any way. Even a ghetto way. :Paranoid:
    Edit2: Yes, okay, I note that the temperatures involved are about the same as a lukewarm bath. Probably not going to shorten lifespans too much.

    Meh. My benching rig is watercooled, and yes, I can pack it up, close the lid and travel with it complete. I do like the toothpicks in his though :thumbup:

    Rearmost red is the power LED. Black momentary switch is a reset button. Red momentary switch is the power button. All set into a chunk of closed cell foam, cut with a bread knife...

    That particular board had a CLR/CMOS button so I didn't bother with one of those remoted :weirdo:

    Cool story bro.
    It looks like a bar of fancy soap.

    :lol::p

    (Seriously, I quite like what you've done there.
    Feel free to take over management of this thread at any time, You've pretty much been keeping it alive mate... :thumbup:

    Side note, looks like I'm moving from my current and fairly cramped quarters shortly, to a place that might have room for a reasonable project/workbench space... so maybe I'll be able to contribute to my own thread again soon... :lol:)

    :lol: Dad jokes are never acceptable but once you get to great grandad it becomes 'meh, ignore the old fart, he's a bit vague these days' and you can get away with it :thumbup:

    Most of my ghetto is just part of being tight and lazy, but thanks anyway ;)

    shaddupayaface ya old fart ;)

    Alright. That's probably enough of a love-in.

    House move coming up in 3...2...1... Fucking PILES of computer cases, PSUs, air cooling/WC hardware, all of it at least 4 generations old of course....
    Gotta be some ghetto PC lovin somewhere in all of that.
    Got a Cosmos S in decent knick waiting for the end result of a "proper" build. Still haven't decided if I can be fucked making it a full-on WC mod build...
    Odds-on that it will be 'NO'. I just don't have the time these days. :(
