    The space inefficiency thread

    Can't wait to see how space inefficient this thing is when it's done

    Log 6L Vintage Radio FULL SLEEPER build featuring the GE Superadio II 7-2885 F

    Thanks! I have considered this cooler. Judging by the photos on their site it would be cutting it awfully close (looks like its as tall/taller than the wifi ports). Even if it did fit, it would sit very close to the back panel potentially generating some whirring sounds. Also given the fan's...

    EK sells their supremacy plates a la carte as well if you need a spare these plates have jogs in the outer edge that might limit your cutting surface though. Velocity plates would probably work the best if you can get your hands on one

    Lots to get into with this update. (pic heavy post incoming) First I'll start off with the more boring one. My RAM was also going to be too tall to work for this build so I was able to deshroud it using just a heat gun and some tweezers, and it comes in just under my max allowable height...

    The space inefficiency thread

    Personally, I can dig the aesthetic, but it definitely belongs here (and 7 intake to 1 exhaust... yikes)

    Got some NF-A4x20s in the mail yesterday so I got to work on my low profile cpu cooler concept: I was going to attack these with the dremel but they ended up being soft enough to just cut with some snips and finish the edges with a file. These left and right handed tin snips ended up being the...

    Time for a quick but important update. I haven't been able to work as much as I'd like on the build lately as I've been mostly laying on the couch sick for the last 4 days (sinus infection). However, yesterday I did finally feel up to installing the AXP-90 X36 which finally arrived, and taking...

    Discussion Unconventional PC cases

    I had a long rebuttal typed up but I didn't want to be mistaken for losing my cool since this is something I'm passionate about. I'll just say that I recommend doing some more research and maybe take a shot at building one yourself.

    That A37 is a great idea. I ordered an AXP-90 to test more thoroughly but if it falls through I'll definitely be looking into that, thanks.

    Update time again! I was able to take a dremel to the inside of the radio and remove enough of the inner bits for a test fit of the components and cut out a "proof of concept" inner tray using a sheet of acrylic: Looking at the perspective below, I'm confident that everything will be able to...

    Discussion ENP-7660B from SFFTEC

    Sorry I'm very late to the party on this but I bought my 7660b limited back in Nov 2020. Iirc it took just over a week to get to me and I have had absolutely no complaints and It has been the psu for my daily driver since then. I did a Noctua fan swap on it shortly after I got it. I can't...

    Time for another update. I finally had some time to open the radio up and assess the design, as it will determine how I incorporate all of my design ideas. As soon as I flipped this thing over to examine the back panel there was an immediate, glaring issue. Unlike older radios I've used in the...
