(Case Mod) HTPC 7.1 AMP


Hello to all,
I am back with another Case mod.

This case mod will be different from all the case mods out there.

As you all know I am having a Corsair 300R case and a self-made 7.1 Audio amplifier since they both acquire quit a large space in my room. So now I am ordered (from whom…? You all married person know very well ) to throw one of the above out of the room.
So an idea came in my mind why not combine both in one case.



Now I am building a HTPC with 7.1 (@ 100w per channel) amplifier.
(Still hunting for any alternative case or Idea) for this build. And so naming this build as HAF HTPC-7.1 AMP.

For this I will be re-designing and building all amp PCBs, getting smaller and more efficient heatsinks.
From PC will be replacing 5.25 optical drive with a Laptop slim optical drive. In order to do so first I have to make a Slimline Sata connector.
Hunted down a faulty laptop motherboard with slim Sata connector.



De-soldering the connector using hot gun. Covered the connector with alu-foil to protect him for heat.



Done.




Now time to cut a black sata cable, and solder it to the connector.




Now added cable for power.



Perfect fit.




Added a molex connector to power the drive.



Now used some M-seal to shape the connector, let it solidify. Now filled it to final shape. Later will be colouring it black.
ALL done looks perfect works fine too.









Finally the case is on its way, will be getting it in 2-3 days.
Thanks for watching, hope you all like it.
Will update more soon

Rakesh Sharma

Man, your mods are amazing. I wonder what you'd do with proper funding/sponsoring. We could have a world-class mod.

It's so nice to see a true enthusiast. Waiting to see the rest of the build!

re: (Case Mod) HTPC 7.1 AMP

Will not be using any CM Case or Product in this build or better never
Changed the case name to HTPC-7.1 Amp.

Want some suggestion for alternative case or idea.

Till then have a look at some more cable sleevings..



Thanks
