My N64p

Post by User » Tue Feb 19, 2008 11:41 pm

Damn finally l was able to get into this forum,l was never able to get a confirmation e-mail to activate my previous accounts l tried creating,but anyway onto my first portable l've tried to build,and its almost done,just need a controller!!!!!!!!!
my portable runs off 6 NI-MH sub-c batteries,that l was able to sandwich in my sytem internally.
5 inch psone screen
original n64 housing as my case
fan mod
some completely random homebuilt dc-dc converter from someone off ebay,its tiny which is good,but it overheats so l had to put it under my fan and it solved the problem of it resetting my nintendo 64 every minute >_>.
and thats pretty much all, the rest is in the pics l'm posting so yeh.
A big thanks to bacteria for his extremely helpful sticky topic as well as skyone for useful diagrams as well as anyone else in these boards l nabbed info from :D

Good, pleased you liked my guide. Just a suggestion, but how about designing and making your own case out of perspex? It would look nice then...

Kind of an old thread isn't it? The electrical tape holding those heatsinks on is a bad idea, as the heatsinks now have no surface area because they are covered in tape.

Yes, old topics seem to keep being brought back for no real reason lately.

Neildo_64 - Yes, he should have used heatsinks and not tape. As the fan is directly over the chips it should be able to cool them fine without heatinks, however he should have used heatsinks as a precaution.
