Hello to all,
I am Rakesh Sharma from Jodhpur India, Came here 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 wink.gif) 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.

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.
