Hardware transplant

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Im currently planning to transplant all of my hardware in my optiplex 990 space saving into a bigger case. Im doing this so i can fit a full sized graphics card inside the thing. Note: im going to using a new power supply and im going to get rid of the CD drive and replace it with a normal SSD. Is this possible and is this a bad idea? Im currently on a VERY tight budget,

Is this the motherboard you're transplanting?


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B


Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.


Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)


How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Not a standard sized motherboard and other connectors for front io so won't work.

new power supply


They usually have a proprietary wiring 

So it's not advised 

Also did you repost this ?

My favorite case is the mechify c and it is the best case and if you say otherwise you're lying 


@TofuHaroto so I can see your post
