    So I got my parts in :) Apologies for the delay, I had to fly abroad at short notice :/ I'm trying to make a splitter for my fan header, so I can tee off the signal wires for the add2psu whilst keeping the header functional as normal. It's the only one on the board :eek: The chassis fan header...

    Mini GPU on a diet

    It would really depend on what the card was, as it's quite specific to each model. For example, I think it'd work on a 1050 as I think the mounting holes are the same as the 750, as far as I'm aware. But, with a 1650 it may be a different layout. For example, the Zotac 1060 in the picture has...

    Same...I've not bought from AliExpress before, so I'm a little nervous to sign up. But I didn't see them anywhere else either, I'll have another browse then if not, sign up to AE.

    Mini GPU on a diet

    @cleveland I must admit I was in your thread the other day and did spot that :D Good to know! It's even the exact same length and plug orientation that I'm going to get. AliExpress too?

    Mini GPU on a diet

    I got one on amazon, an ADTlink but the cable is puny I bet it's x1 speed. On advice from @ejectbutton on the one he's using on a build, I'm going to spend a little more and get this one instead...

    Mini GPU on a diet

    Cheers buddy :) Yes and no on thermal testing... The last time I had the system running with the lid on, was before I'd finished the graphics card, and even before I had a case fan rigged up. So kind of a worst case scenario. I ran a Prime95 test on the CPU, after around 20 minutes it settled at...

    Mini GPU on a diet

    So I threw a few of the bits together, to show why I really needed the graphics card to be thinner. Yes, it's a Dreamcast, the volume is somewere around the 2.8L mark XD The whole top surface of the system is slightly domed, so the fan isn't literally pressed straight up against the lid. But...

    ***** Before I start, it's worth mentioning that this isn't an ongoing build per se. It's the steps taken to modify a component, for my build. It's probably been done before, but, I figured it might be cool to some people, and this seemed like the most appropriate space :) ***** For my current...

    That's one wiring job I trust myself not to mess up hopefully! The HDplex pcb I have labels the cables

    Well shit. I better order those parts and give this setup a try :eek: I actually want a better riser cable, so for the sake of testing the system 100% as it will eventually be, I'll bin my old one and test when I get another one delivered.

    A couple of parts I need to get. For the motherboard 19v and maybe the sync, I have plenty of old pc parts I can butcher for the right sort of wire.

    Yeah that's awesome @W4RR10R . I hope you don't mind I altered the diagram to show mine :) I think the last thing that I had wrong in my head, was that I could pass the motherboard power source through the Mini, and use 12v. But that can't be confirmed, and like people have said even if it did...

    @Kmpkt Well you may have been right anyway, based on the fact the revisedmanual no longer states 12v :/
