Computer built inside an NES that I made 5 years ago.
In 2012 I got an NES that was broken and I wanted to put an computer inside of it.
And this is what I ended up with after weeks of work.
Motherboard: MSI B75IA-E33, Socket-1155
CPU: Intel® Pentium® Processor G630
RAM: Crucial DDR3 1066MHz 4GB KIT, CL7,
Case: Original NES
HDD: Corsair SSD Nova Series 2, 60GB
Cooling: Fractal Design R2 40mm Silent fan
Power: picoPSU 160watt
Emulator Frontend: GameEx
Cheap way to mount an ssd.
Inside when I was done with my project.
Booted to bios.
Emulator software up and running.
LED and power button is working.
NES PC booting up and starting a game.
What should I do better on next project:
- Make the cables shorter, I had so much space wasted on this.
- Want to have dedicated graphic card.
- Easy way to access hard drive when I´m not on a network, maybe sd-card or something.
