Post your Good Ghetto mods

Recommended Posts

Added a Backplate Cutout to the motherboard tray of my Silverstone FT01.  Also, ghetto cable ties.

Let me see you Ghetto mods that look nice.  Here is my ghetto mounted raid card in my 800D.  Too cheap to upgrade to 2011 for more PCIe Lanes.  :P

You are using an USB to PCI-E adapter for a RAID card? Don't you slow down the drives heavily?

 

Here is my passive (more or less ghetto) cooling mod:

Its a PCIE extension.  It used the USB 3.0 cable to extend the PCIE 1x with out the need of emi shielding.  Coin Miners use it a ton. I get 1.5GB read and 1GB wright on 4x PCIE.  I get 1GB read and 800MB write with 1x.   Not that big of a hit.  Every thing els in my pc will be a bodle neck when it comes to moving files to any other media.

Mistakenly bought a 3 pin fan instead of a 2 pin fan to replace my PSU's dying fan. Didn't feel like buying an adapter or stripping the cable so I made this simple ghetto mod and connected the fan to the case's fan controller. Now I can even lower the fan speed down.. yey.

People don't have a few hundred bucks laying around for a new system when that one blows up because of the PSU blowing up.

My thoughts exactly. The quality of it is scary just looking at it. And on top of that you are telling me it's so old the fan inside is dying? Sounds like a time bomb.

I had a dodgy power supply before then I knew the problems it could give so I saved to buy my PC a Seasonic. It will all be worth it in the long run.

Seems like kind of a waste of resources....sharing only 16 lanes with 3 graphics cards and 1 RAID card?? Some of your cards will be running at 4x if you are running AMD...that's really bottlenecked.

 

Also, your top card needs some support, it looks warped.


Hi! If you ever need some structural, mechanical or electrical design/build help on your new rig, send me a PM and ill try and help you out!

First 2 are running at 8x and the last one is running at 1x along with the raid card.  The last card only runs PhysX and Folding at home. Nether of those will need more than 1x.  The raid card is for storage not running the OS off of it. The OS is running off the Intel chipset in Riad 0 with 6 SSD's ( Yes I know they nightlight back up to the raid card and then to my google drive)

Have been using this powersupply for 5 years now... currently running an old 1055t overclocked and a 290x. Hope it serves me well until I get some money and buy a more decent one.

Let's make a thread about the getoist (is that even a word) things you have done tech related anything with tech being part of it works.

My getoist thing is once I wanted to buy a Bose speaker (for a gift) that cost 320$ and obviously I did not want to pay for the full price. So I asked if there was any discounts or if I could match the price , and there was nothing. Until one nice employee showed me that he could buy it for 180$ because he was a employee, and so I asked if I could buy it from him (outside the store) for 200$ and he said yes. So at 10:30pm I meet him in a gas station (just like a drug deal) and I gave him the cash and he gave me the speakers then we walked opposite ways to our cars and drove away

I had some passive speakers laying around and I connected them to my 2.1 system sub. So I had 2x2.1. Wasn't the best experience, but was definitely louder.  :lol:

I once mounted a set of Noctua coolers to two Xeons in my mega workstation build. The mounting hardware was wrong, so I just mounted them with zip-ties. - Linus

Fixing my S3's audio plug with tape.


Basic guide to CPU's!

If I said I were 14, you would call me a kid. If I say 70, you’ll entitle me too old. If I say 20 you say I’m inexperienced and if I say 40 than I'm too boring.

I think the words you are looking for are "Ghetto" and "Most Ghetto"

Corsair is overrated, and Anime is ruined by the people who watch it
