You need to post a few times before being able to use the forums image upload. But I think you can get around that by uploading an image to a free image share website like https://imgbb.com/. I think you can use that website without creating an account. I'm not sure how long the image will last, but it's a good way to quickly share your image if you're in a rush to show us your cool stuff!

These all look really cool. I've not yet tried to build anything that looks good, but I did add a few things to my MiSTer setup. I added a powered USB hub, and new 5v - 5Amp power adapter to power both the Nano and USB hub, and a power switch. I also extended the HDMI, power, Ethernet out the back, and the USB and power switch is on the front. Hopefully I'll get some time soon to build a real case, but this functions just fine.

The reason I bought the bigger power supply is because I'll probably use this same setup with different single board computer eventually. I may want to run a couple external HD's for some future project.

Since you are mounting stuff, you can add external buttons and LEDs. If I'm not mistaken they are direct pin connections to the DE10.

Good idea. I'll keep that in mind if I ever start using those DE10-nano buttons!

My MiSTer Build in a Case

Post by rockotiger »

So I ordered a DE10 Nano board and one of Jim Drew's DE10 Super Expansion Boards: https://www.cbmstuff.com/proddetail.php?prod=DE-10-SEB

I added an RTG plug and a powered USB Hub. Then I bought a SERPAC A31,BK project case and fit everything inside:

https://flic.kr/s/aHsmzur5Tv

After that I cut out a vinyl label for it using my Silhouette Cameo 3. It's not super pretty, especially inside the case, but it works great and I'm happy with it. I didn't like having the board without a case and didn't care much for the 3D printed options. It even has an opening on the side for microSD card access. Anyway, I just wanted to share in case someone was considering case options but didn't want to 3D print one.

rockotiger, that's awesome.

I've been working on something kind of similar. I chose wood. It's not done. I still have to change out the front black placeholder craft board with wood and sand the entire thing, and maybe stain it, but it's working great.

I also need to add a fan.

I haven't built something custom like you talented people, but I put together this power trio using existing parts. Now that I have the 486 core sorted, I just need to solve MIDI output to the MT-32. So close...

Thanks for sharing! You should probably pull jumper JP2 if you intend to use the external LEDs.

Some simple case I built for a friend's MiSTer.

Just some acrylic, some plastic ledge (I don't know if this is the right word) and hot glue.

But it looks better in reality than in these pictures:

I will built something similar for my own MiSTer, but I am still waiting for my USB hub.

Thanks, MattE888. I like your wood case, too.

You're welcome. It's a great product! Just what I wanted -- every add-on built into one board! And thanks for the tip about the jumper.

Flausch, I really like that. That is kind of what I was wanting to do, but I don't know enough about acrylic to try. Where did you find the plastic angle pieces and black acrylic? I basically want to copy your idea but make it larger and include all the things mine has in it. That would make mine way slimmer than it is. Wood is too bulky.

Go-go TI-994a stupidly huge peripheral expansion box. I love it. My family had one. Wish we would have kept that whole system. We had the cute little speech box too. I have to imagine they are stupidly rare these days.

I had no idea, when I started. I just went to Ebay and Amazon and searched for everything.
The acrylic pieces are 2 mm thin and from somewhere at Ebay (search for "Acrylic plate"). You have to cut it with a box cutter until it has a groove. Then you can break it. I used an electric screwdriver to drill the holes.

The angle pieces are for kitchen or furniture (I guess). The sell it at amazon.de for very cheap. (search for "GAH-Alberts 479008 and 479015)"
I used 10mm x 10mm angle inside to connect the the acrylic pieces with hot glue and 15mm x 15mm for the side cover.
You can buy these in a lot of variations and sizes.
