  1. Here's the link to my Mac Pro 2.1 Mod if you want to take a look at it. https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/1063758-apple-macpro-21-case-mod/?tab=comments#comment-12565832
  2. Even though the standoffs are made from aluminum they can be easily removed with some pliers. I did that with my old Mac Pro 2.1. Then I screwed them into the motherboard and used two component glue to hold them in place afterwards. The motherboard can be removed easily after the glue has cured.
  3. reseating the CPU? Sound's dumb but hey, at least you could try it
  4. May I present you an almost perfect Cube.. Now I just have to drill some holes in it and insert the middle plate then I'm almost good to go!
  5. 1. measure thrice! Can't say that enough, once you did a cut it stays like this forever 2. there aren't any real risks at all, biggest risk would be you did a wrong cut, can't install fans and then have a hole in the front of your PC ^^ 3. not a veteran myself, so nothing from my side# 4. depending on how good it should look/what tools you already have at hand. when you just want better airflow then it shoud be pretty cheap, some mesh, like 16 bolts and nuts and thats about it..
  6. I tried it with some tin snips, cutting was okay but it got warped in the process so I couldn't use the rest of it. I don't own an angle grinder just a dremel but I can't imagine that this would work.
  7. This is the layout as I mentioned before. Also tried cutting the steel today but that didn't really work out, probably will need ab better cutting tool, any suggestions?
  8. So I got a used Kallax 4x4 shelf for free and wanted to incorporate it into my living room setup.. Only problem was.. my case is normal ATX and stands in a place where it later couldn't stand anymore because the Kallax is supposed to go there.. So the only logical thing anyone can think of is of course to search for an ATX case that would fit inside a Kallax. Measurements are 33x33x39 ATX is 30.5x24.4 So there should be a fitting case, right? Wrong! Now I have to build one myself because I'm to stubborn to relocate my PC down on
  9. yeah those pics aren't really good, I had to close the curtains because otherwise the pics would have been even worse
  10. 4. FINISHING as mentioned before I had to cut out the old IO shield and the metal pieces between the pcie slots, also had to cut a new hole for the PSU cable the SSD's are now mounted to the old HDD cages using some simple inateck 2.5" to 3.5" adapter plates the GPU is secured in place with a standard screw and nut (not elegant but it works) last part will be trying to place the old RAM cage over the CPU Cooler (but that won't happen so soon as I won't have time to work on it) in theory it should fit, but i will have to cut out some pi
  11. DISCLAIMER!! English is not my native language, I appologise for any mistakes I make! Before I start showing yo guys what I did to the case of the old MacPro I had lying around collecting dust, let me tell you why I did it. I bought a new fan for my PC and while taking of the glass sidepanel I dropped it.. so yeah.. good job.. First I thought about buying a new one but those are quiet expensive and the case wasn't that good for cablemanagement or airflow. That's why I decided to rip appart the old MacPro (it wasn't in working condition anymore, so no pr
  12. Now I somehow got my system running while the 1080Ti was installed, I used the 960 to get some pictures of the device manager, sorry it's in german but I was so happy that I quickly took the pictures without thinking about it. I'll also make a second post with more pics of device manager and some from gpuz. reinstalling the drivers via device manager didn't help at all.
  13. so luckily my co-worker had an old GTX960 laying around and he borrowed it to me. I pluged the 1080Ti and the 960 in at the same time and windows seemed to start normally (HDMI in 960). then I went into the device manager, both cards were detected although the 1080ti was marked with a small symbol. When I opened the device in the list it said that it couldn't be installed correctly and needed a different set of drivers and while trying to take a screenshot my pc turned down and started right back up in automatic recovery which I let do its thing. Then t
  14. It doesn't smell burned or anything if you mean that. I'm not really able to have two cards installed simultaneously my case is too small for that, or atleast with the two cards I have. I screwed a different cooler onto my RX570 and now it also is a triple slot card, if not even more because of the fan. (I installed an Accelero S3 passive cooler on it with a noiseblocker fan ontop of that) And there is nobody around who i could ask to borrow a card from.
  15. Good evening my dear fellow LTT-subscribers, I've got a little problem.. I recently bought a used GTX 1080Ti it worked smoothly for the last month or so but now I don't get a signal from the card at all. Its LED's are glowing and the system works just fine with my old RX570 but with the new one I can't even see the BIOS startup. The rest of my setup is ASRock AB350 Pro4 AMD Ryzen 5 1600x with bequiet! Shadow rock LP cooler 2x 8GB DDR4-2666MHz Crucial Ballistix Sport LT (might be a little bit slow but when I built the pc I couldn't
