Update: Drilling holes in my case directly above the fan reduced overall temperatures 10C, it went from 70C down to 60C during the same one hour drive. I have speedfan 4.34 installed and noticed if I change the fan % it makes the fan run harder -- I'll have to look into this more.
No pics, but I used a punch tool before drilling so the drill bit wouldn't wander. Drilling aluminum is really easy with a hand drill.
Anyone think it would be possible to fit 2 2.5" harddrives in the mo-co-so case?? or is it just too tight?
I have a mo-co-so case (and system) and I have two 2.5 drives mounted under the M2 ATX. Fits fine (with their mounting bracket).
PDP1170/TRS80/Atari800XL/Amiga500/286/486/P2/P4/C2D/i7 still a newb (but an old newb, been doing this a while) working my way up to "Complete Newb"
Yea what mounting bracket? There was no bracket included with my case.
I talked to the guys over there at mo-co-so and they basically added the capability of adding a second 2.5" harddrive for only 25 bucks. I just wish i bought from them to begin with to be honest. They have the best customer service of all the MinITX equipment suppliers i've seen.
$25 is quite a bit for a piece of bent metal. I wonder if something diy can be fabricated...
