Me second:

Unit: LK204-25
Case: Custom acrylic cube
Difficulty: difficult
Other: The unit is mounted in the drive cage behind acrylic. Motherboard standoffs are threaded into the acrylic sheet, and M3 screws attach the unit from the rear. The standoffs were modified by grinding them down so they didn't extend through the thickness of the .125" acrylic sheet. The PSU for the system is behind the LCD. Serial port is wired to the pin header for COM2 on the motherboard with an IDC female connector.

Materials Needed: motherboard standoffs available at PC retail outlets everywhere and M3 screws from hardware store. 6-32 tap used for threading mounting holes.

Unit: LK162-12
Case: Microsoft Internet Keyboard Pro
Difficulty: Medium
Other: It's a tight fit, and to make room inside the keyboard, I had to remove a screw column, reposition a few capacitors on the keyboard's controller, and file down the chassis for those three Internet buttons a bit. To scale down the display itself, I removed all of it's headers and connectors, and seperated the serial backpack from the main display, reconnecting it near the center of the keyboard with some ribbon cable. I also dremelled off the display PCB's top-right corner, and took two or three millimeters off the top edge(It's THAT tight a fit). Everything is powered off the keyboard's built-in USB hub via a stripped down USB-to-Serial adapter cable embedded inside.
Hey, I finally got around to taking an internal picture. From left to right, you see the USB/Serial adapter, the LCD's Serial backback, and the keyboard's own controller.


Materials Needed: Phillips screwdriver, Dremel tool with drilling/cutting bits, file, soldering iron, hot glue gun, USB-to-Serial adapter(PL2303 chipset based), wire & drive ribbon cable.

Unit: LK204-25PC
Case: Chieftec Dragon Big Tower

Other: Connected blacklight cc, blue cc, keypad lighting and casebadge lighting to GPOs.

I separated the pcbs and mounted the controller card on the Digital Doc 5 and the display card in the front door of the case.

Materials needed: Dremel with various accessories, epoxy glue, screws, stand-offs, pcb-making equipment (for the keypad), other bits and pieces.

There will be an article about this mod on http://www.oestvang.no when I get my thumb out of my ****, but in the meantime there are a lot of pictures on here with quite descriptive names about the pictures.

LCD on Project Crucial:

Case: Modified mid-tower, unknown brand
Difficulty: easy-medium
Other notes: Fairly easy, drilled the hole with drill, used scroll saw to cut out a square then filed it down to exact. The LCD doesn't work, it is broken right now, but that will change. I plugged in power wrong.

Unit: BVK202A-4BR
Case: Generic mid tower
Difficulty: Medium (I had to relocate my cathode switch to my case door which meant drilling, then the plug on the cathode broke so I had to solder on the wires to the switch, and now my power supply fan makes a loud grinding noise for some unknown reason:) )
Other: I like the display alot but I just wish I could get it and the software to act right so I can get it to display what I want it to. Well here are the pics

List of tools: screwdriver(flat and philips)

Hey all

This is our music PC in the shop , currently hooked up to 7 demo speaker systems through a switch box. To finish the job off , we fitted a BVF-2041 - not really anything original there, but the full pc system certainly grabs some attention. The colour scheme is loosely modelled on those classic jukeboxes with the coloured tubes around them !


Thanks !

Unit: GLK12232-25-SM
Case: Shuttle SS51G
Difficulty: Medium

Since it is taller then 3.5 bay, need some case modification.
CD Drive's bottom plate must be removed or cut.

Toggle power switch is installed using original bolt hole. May be I will change them to two momentary switchs that work as keypads!
