Guide: Fueler's Custom Modded Folding Rig

The Finished Case (Final Pics):


Still not completely happy with the lighting, but I think I'm making progress. This is at the 5 volt setting.















I'm sorrry guys......I went through $22.00 worth of batteries and nearly forty pics with every type of lighting I could think up but this was the best I could do for the final night shot (a photographer, I am not.... this was harder than building the thing)




I do have a few final thoughts though. The magnetic side panels and front bezel are like a god send.... I will never build another custom case without this feature.... they just work that good!! My next office computer will also be a dual PC single PSU design..... I see tons of possibilities.
  • An office computer/gaming pc with a back up pc for the second unit.
  • A general purpose PC combined with a folding PC
  • Two all out gaming PCs for the LAN party crowd
The list goes on and on, it's only limited by your imagination.
Surely the 1 killowatt plus PSUs available now would be able to handle just about anything you could think of. (I think the power requirements that manufacturers claim are way over-blown to cover their a**)

I hope you enjoyed the build....I certainly had a lot of fun (and some frustrations) bringing it to you.

Until next time cool.gif foldon.gif
