Are all the connection available and id blocking the ports?

07-12-2013, 05:05 PM
no it is a clear path out the back (well after some handy dremel work) I put a small extension usb cable on it and a bigger hdmi cable so I shouldnt need to get in there too often. it has alot more room to breathe now too!!

Pretty cool. Dremel up the two lights on the front of the cockpit, and add two leds for your power lights :thumbsup:

Can't wait to see the finished product! :D

well here is the finished product!! added a higher rpm LED fan. it gives me visual confirmation that the fan kicks on by lighting up the cockpit blue! the fan really pushes the air and is louder than the stock one but it only kicks on every 15min or so for about a minute :)

08-19-2013, 05:43 PM
That is awesome man! Mad skillz yo!

08-20-2013, 07:17 AM
wow, that is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. my new main goal in life is to do this with a model of serenity.

Well its been a few months now since I completed my Tie Fighter mod and it was featured on Ouya Radar http://youtu.be/FK7KBBq80Dk and I figured I would give you peeps a little long term update. Everything runs great with no overheating issues whatsoever. even with heavy HD streaming on XBMC for hours at a time it takes the ouya 15min or so to creep up to 136F (that is when the fan kicks on) and takes less than a minute to cool it down to around 112f or so. Im kinda bummed that very few people have posted any case mods... fellow nerds unite!! lets see what you got ;)
