Most Dell, HP & Apple Cases have Special Connections & Fans and sometimes Special Mounting Brackets. I knew this before hand but was willing to make a Few Modifications to make this work. Unfortunately it turned out to be more of a Pain than I thought jumping into it. But the Computer is ready for an upgrade on the CPU Cooler in the future, I just need to find a Threaded Mount Cooler that will fit without a massive Mod to the Case. But might be worth watching, you might learn from my oversights failures or mistakes.

Here is the video I promised a couple weeks ago. I fix the issue with the cooler & attempt a Xeon Mod on the Motherboard

@31:58 is the Hard Drive "Chirp" or "Click" I will replace it soon.

Raspberry Pi 4 rig with M.2 SATA boot SSD, ICE Tower cooler, and lots of heavy brass! This video is a voyage of discovery in search of an ultimate, steampunk Pi 4 configuration. Well, something like that.

In addition to a RaspberryPi 4 8GB model, parts used in the build (and possible international alternatives) are as follows:

ICE Tower cooler from 52 Pi: Amazon.com: https://amzn.to/3jjGJHA Amazon.co.uk: http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07V35V1CH... (affiliate links).

M2.5 brass standoff kit:
Amazon.co.uk: http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0778JRXPS... Very close alternative on Amazon.com: https://amzn.to/39jbIPG (affiliate links).

WD Green 120GB M.2 SATA SSD:
Amazon.com: https://amzn.to/2OBWkEx Amazon.co.uk: http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B078WYRR9S... (affiliate links).

USB 3.0 M.2 SATA enclosure (the model I used was from ADWITS):
Amazon.co.uk: http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B089SVKQ4M... (affiliate link) There are lots of similar devices available, but note that not all USB SATA enclosures will boot on a Raspberry Pi 4.

Short, angled USB extension cable -- I started out with a down-angle, but ended up using an up:
Amazon.co.uk: http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07BPGG9PF... Amazon.com (up and down pack): https://amzn.to/3eIr9Sx (affiliate links).

The 200mm x 100mm x 2mm brass plate I used was purchased from e-Bay.

To boot from a USB drive, at the time of making this video the Raspberry Pi 4 requires a firmware update. I demonstrate in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2zrwj...

Finally, I covered the free Inkscape drawing package in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vgCUc...

If you look at the mainstream news today, one gets the distinct impression that the planet is headed for a cataclysmic environmental shift driven by the earth’s changing climate. What you will not hear, however, is that this shift may very well come from cooling of the planet by reduced solar activity, and not the warming that most climate alarmists are warning of due to anthropogenic (man-made) emissions of greenhouse gases. In ‘Twilight of Abundance’, scientist David Archibald reviews the evidence over the last several thousand years, and comes to the conclusion that our current age is an interglacial one, which if historical patterns hold true, will revert to a period of glaciation and cooling that will bring catastrophic down-pressure on earth’s carrying capacity for life as the sun goes into a period of lower radiative activity.
