A few of you might remember this thread:
Anyway,a few days ago I was considering getting a new case so I could use the HD5850 and the Core i3 together. However,the cases I wanted were either too large or too expensive.
Then,I realised why not mod my current case some more??
However,ATM I lack sufficient mod tools so I got Bagnaj97 to assist me.
I have added some pictures to show the new changes.
I replaced the Corsair HX520W with a Shuttle PC63J 500W PSU. The existing Corsair Vengeance DDR3 was replaced by a some Corsair Vengeance LP DDR3 and an 80MM fan was inserted as a system exhaust.
I had to cut some more of the case so I could insert the HD5850 1GB.
The system has two hard drives,but the newer one decided to start having some SMART issues the moment I put in the system!! It had been in an external caddy before.
The 5.25" drive is only occupied by an SSD ATM. I am thinking of adding a card reader or VFD display. I will also need to get some shorter SATA cables too.
The new system is smaller than the Shuttle P2 chassis.
It also smaller than the current H3 and H7 chassis too.
