HI, This is my first time posting, I saw this video where a guy put a PC in a game cube shell and wondered if it would really be that difficult. I was initially going to attempt following along with what he did but have had trouble finding a tiny intake fan and power switch cables i could solder onto the power button. Does anyone know where i could find these parts? also just another note in the video he made the game cube ports work which i will not even attempt but it seems like a cool project to work on while i'm stuck at home.

Says in the video it's a Fractal Design R3 50mm fan.

The power switch cables can be robbed from the Deskmini 300 case.

Pretty nice how well that STX mobo fit in there.

He's got a parts list in the video description.

That's the spirit!

I wouldn't say that youtuber exhibited fantastic DIY skills either (aside from the controller ports).

In my experience with these types of projects, maintaining as much of the original functionality of the enclosure as possible is the key to a truly unique final product. It's what separates the do-ers from the quitters.
