    Question overriding the necessity of a CD drive

    Do you mean an internal ssd instead of or along side of a disc drive? As far as I know there is no way to mount any other type of storage to the disc drive connection... Otherwise, an entirely internal ssd would have to be converted to usb and soldered to one of the usb ports, so you're really...

    Worklog The Slimboii - Passively Cooled Wii Portable

    Looks like Wii have an update! (don't worry the rest is cringe-free) Finally got the aluminum part of the case milled for free at college, so those memes are attached. Little chonkier than I was expecting, but this is as thin as a portable can get with 18650 cells. There are little bits of...

    Worklog First wii portable for final paper

    A 6-layer draws quite a bit more power and therefore needs more cooling, so a 4-layer is highly recommended and will greatly increase the usability of the portable. The 4-layer is not much harder than the 6 to trim, only the bluetooth relocation comes to mind where you need to scratch off solder...

    So you're tellin me putting the bluetooth right behind the middle of the screen like this won't kill the signal like ten feet away? Would it help if I soldered a wire to the antenna to run closer to the front? The screen is big enough I'm imagining some group playing with Wiimotes would be...

    Worklog The Slimboii - Passively Cooled Wii Portable

    I've got a good layout now and drew in some power and data lines, but I'm concerned about how the bluetooth data crosses like all of the main wii power wires, is that going to be a problem? And since I think I have all the parts now (except for the c-stick), tell me if I'm missing anything big.
