I wanted to have external HDD. So I had a look what was lieing around and I noticed that I had everything to build one.
While building I changed the PSU and the HDD.
Why spend money to buy a external HDD case? So I take all the former trash in my workshop and start modding.
Time to work
Warning!The inside is a liiittle bit ghetto.
I attached a piece wood on the ground. Then I mount the PSU with a threaded rod and a cable on it. I mounted the little PCB with wood-screws.
The HDD lies on foam and is attached with elastics. A cheap supension.
Because I don't want my HW to overheat, I cut a hole for a fan in the rear.
I need to build a new bezel for the front, because I ripped the old one off some time ago.
Luckiely I had a spraycan with a nearly similar colour.
Now I have working external HDD and there is enough space for another HDD in the case. The best is that I don't spend a Euro, while building that case.
If you want more picturs, just say it and I will add some more.
