I also de-riveted the support bar that holds the motherboard plate in place, and took the motherboard plate off it was removable this made it easier to see how things would line up. So, without further delay, I present you with Favu!. Now with the above listed things completed obtain a heat pipe coolant stack for your phenom processor; I hope that this information is useful to you. Then you can reattach it to the bottom plate. Once you have riveted or screwed the back panel back on, you can put the top back on too, in my case I had to drill some more extra holes, to get the screws in. That seems like extremely hard work. I hope you don't mind me posting it here, Favu.
Thanks In advance for the help I might receive! However I will show you the basics, in the hope that you can use this as a base for other modifications, like windows, painting and such. At this point you should note how the top and bottom panels fit together, as you will have to undo them. Could someone recommend something that would work? Were the holes in the chassi backwards for sliding the sidepanel on cause problems with the panels? For me this caused some issues, as the mounting holes for top and bottom plates where not in the same place, so I had to drill out extra holes in the case, to rivet them together At this point you should also reattach the motherboard support arm. I have a few questions though. Or do anyone know of any cheap solution to this? The first installment of many projects to come. Hello everyone, I'm a long time fan of Linus Tech Tips, but quite new to this forum.
I haven't actually had the oppertunity to finish this case off yet, as it was pressed into service for my brother's retro Celeron rig. Does anyone have any knowledge as to if the adapter I linked would work? I'm mostly curious about the motherboard holes matching because if I have to drill new holes that line up with the motherboard, then I probably won't even try this mod. Did you have to adjust where the motherboard sits to make them line up? If you are lucky, your case will be screwed together, if you are normal, you will have rivets which you can drill out , and if you are unlucky it is just one single bent piece of metal in which case you should give up. Heh, yeah, admittedly, the picture quality isn't the best, but it doesn't really matter, as there was no real detail that had to be shown in the picture, just the overall case. Tatum's computer repair Well from what i understand for the Phenom provided that the processor fits correctly in the socket it should work as long as you got upgraded firmware for your current bios and chipset and make sure all options under cmos for overclocking the processor is turned off. The Mod Squad proudly present you with their first 'How to' guide, performed and written by our very own Favu. This would be a fun little project to carry out! You should find that the side panels fit perfectly, as both the top and bottom plates are in the same positions they where to start with.
Now, remove the rear panel from the bottom panel of the case, for me I did this by drilling out the rivets that held it in place if you have screws you have to undo them. And an average at computer tech stuff I guess. Next, you can remove the top and adjourn to the workbench. . .
