Thread: NVIDIA ION CUBE by cheapskate and mnpctech

    NVIDIA ION CUBE by cheapskate and mnpctech

    Sure is Darth

    MB tray installed, Corsair SSD and DVD fit beneath it.




    2x cold cathode power invertors


    MB tray inside the Nvidia ION cube


    Trim piece on the rear of the Nvidia ION cube


    Assembly of some the cool exterior features of the Nvidia ION cube.

    This is the wheel located on the corner of the shell.


    I use scotch green tape 233+ to temporary prop acrylic pieces together as the Weld-On #3 acrylic cement cures. I use this syringe applicator.




    Spider-like blades are the grill for the top 120mm fan

    bill you should really polish all visible edges on the acrylic with blue compound and a buffing wheel
    Go from rough to smooth:

    In two months? :lol: Normally, I'd be the first person to yell 'polish!' I left a few hurdles in the design he hasn't shown yet too.
    Everything is looking fantastic! 8O I like that the optical is nearly invisible. I was worried that it would show through the vents. You are doing better than I would with the layer gluing.
    -IS there enough room for the optical drive cables?
    :roll: You can tell how wound up I am by the randomness of my comments.

    @ Darth, not necessary for this one, everything was painted Matte Black to match anodized Black base. That way I can eat a bag of greasy chips and not worry about finger prints :mrgreen:

    @ tech-daddy, thanks for the post dude, cheapskate gets the props for the enginnering

    @ cheaps, I painted the entire O.D. Matte Black. LG GH22 SATA Super Multi - DVD Rewriter, 22x. I may have taken photo of that. I ran O.D. cables up along the left side of the MB tray, it's all good!

    @ Thrasher2, now these photos are in focus :mrgreen: (inside joke)

    Installing acrylic switch plate for 22mm Lamptron vandal switch


    Black anodized aluminum pedestal rod for Nvidia ION Cube


    Installing left front exterior trim for optical drive




    MB tray for Zotac 330 ION, power switch wiring was shortly after, out of neccessity!


    1.6 GHz dual core Intel Atom 330 processor with NVIDIA MCP7A-ION chipset and GeForce 9400M graphics.

    I love all of the included features on this ITX motherboard.

    Everything look awesome so far!


    In the top right corner: Were the washers because of a mis-fit on my part, Or did you not find the spacer part?
    Sorry to call you out on that. -I'm still terrified I might have screwed up and let you down somewhere.
