    You've never heard a cover of Kraid's lair like this... @GuilleAcoustic After listening to that cover, I can't help but think of this one.

    Dell Optiplex 5020 Flex ATX to SFX PSU mod

    So, finished up Friday, sorry for the late update. System works great, probably should have gotten a modular PSU so I wouldn't have the extra cable clutter, but there's enough room for it to not be in the way. The bottom vent was made by drilling holes in a row. I didn't bother marking it...

    Dell Optiplex 5020 Flex ATX to SFX PSU mod

    So I needed a replacement for my 10 year old HTPC but am on a strict budget due to COVID-19. The usb ports were going out so it wasn't worth upgrading the graphics card as I have a spare gtx1060 lying around. So I went and bought a cheap Dell off of eBay, but the problem with any recent...

    Production Velka series cases for ultra compact and portable desktops

    I did not receive any angled bracket that supports the graphics card. The only angled bracket I have is used for the 3.5" HDD mount. Also, as I explained in Update 2, removing the 4th motherboard spacer fixed the front bezel problem. Right now, the graphics card is being held by the hole for...

    Production Velka series cases for ultra compact and portable desktops

    1. Ah ok. Makes sense. 3. I'll try that. I did notice that it did start to bend when I over-tightened the sidepanel screws. That's what those were? They were so small I thought they were anti vibration pads for the PSU. I'll keep the current rubber feet I've got on now as they are much larger...

    Production Velka series cases for ultra compact and portable desktops

    So... I got my Velka 5 case today, and transferred my parts to this case today at work. I've got to say that while this wasn't the most fun case to work in, it wasn't the worst. I put the case together using the manual on the Velcase website. 1. The case did not come with 8 M3 thumbscrews...
