Continuing the discussion from Super Nintendo Emulation Station! (SNES PC): I'M BACK AT IT AGAIN! Almost a year later! But I have all new hardware and a whole new plan! -No more HyperSpin -No longer limited to 16bit emulators -Now the hardware is not just a glorified raspberry pi
Lets get right into it starting with the hardware I'm using a Intel DH61AG Thin Mini-ITX, LGA1155 MotherBoard an i5 3570k 16gb 1600 mhz SODIMM DDR3 an ASUS 150w laptop ac/dc PSU and 256gb mSATA samsung evo ssd Ralink Rt3090 Half Mini Height Wireless N Card 802.11 B/g/n Wireless Wifi Card
And the enclosure setup is pretty much the same I'm using a hyperX memory cooler set to exaust and moded to the top (Unclear is this will stay with the final) And here are just some progressive shots
So I am totally unsure as of yet lol. I know for a fact that I can get it closed with the necessary hardware, but I might have to remove the top exhaust fans. I'll be posting more pictures once I get further into the build, I'm current'y having to reinstall windows, but thanks for the feedback all and all :)
Nope... I really wanted this to work. but I have spent 3.5 or 4 days getting this to work. I found out the problem is SteamOS itself. It turns out that with the board that I have I can't get any signal or sound from HDMI using Intel's iGPU(, but the bigger issue was I wasn't able to accept the EULA, it just would never pop up.) This is because the 3570k isn't actually a supported chip for my board. And so with my limited budget and therefore limited options I am going to be stuck with Windows 7 booting to Steam Big picture mode.(Because ICE looks really promising) Trust me when I say I tried to make this work. I tried 5 different remixes of SteamOS going from Legacy to UEFI but all had the same problems. It is absolutely a driver problem within SteamOS. I tied every last option on here https://www.reddit.com/r/SteamOS/comments/22pgp3/working_suggestions_for_black_screen_after/ Still no dice... Perhaps once SteamOS matures a little more, Intel releases better drivers for linux and/or I get even newer hardware and I feel up to the task; then I will try again, but for now... I'm going to make a really cool windows 7 emulator box!
Indeed! I was testing the title screen for Zelda Wind Waker and the temps were in the 50s! the highest was 70 something, but I also love that even then the fans are pretty silent, you can get a sample from the video.
