Show us your MiSTer hardware setup

Postby MattE888 » Fri Nov 09, 2018 3:12 pm

Show us your MiSTer hardware setup! For my first setup, I decided to not spend any money and just use things I have lying around. It's a chop board, USB hub, and hot glue! The USB hub can be powered if I plug the power cord in. Hopefully I'm not the only person who has a weird cheap setup. :D

EDIT: I should probably say I don't have a heatsink or fan yet, but I'm only playing a few minutes of Genesis at a time until I do get those things.

Here's my MiSTer inside its 3D printed case. The side panels are black:

Here is mine.

I cut out a base plate from some scrap plastic and mounted the OTG hub underneath the DE10-nano. Had to use some longer standoffs under the nano to clear the hub.

Not pictured: Mayflash Sega Saturn adapter and Saturn gamepad. Also have a small wireless Logitech keyboard I use with it.

These are all really cool! I can't wait to make mine better. I'm getting some good ideas here!

AndrewSisk, the next time you open that case, can you show us what that looks like inside? I like how you have a SNES controller port on there. Is that a USB to SNES adapter or did you wire the SNES port up to the pins on the de-10 nano somehow? Very coooool!!!

How did you cut the wholes on the box? they look great!

I have bought an aluminum box myself, but I'm still trying to figure out how to cut it.

Cheers,

I'm interested in knowing that too. I was thinking about using a Dremel. Not sure how hard that will be though.

Thanks. Yes I used a Dremel and a set of small diamond files. Use a small drill bit 1st then file square. use the cut off wheel for big stuff. Just go slow. The snes port is a usb controller kit from retro usb wired to a plug. Will add inside picture when i get chance.

Thanks for clarifying that.

What was the grit of the files you used? 150?

cheers,

Here is my setup.
While i have no 3D Printer or proper tools and skills for building a case from scratch, i decided to look for alternatives.
Outta pure luck i found this empty box for the Galaxy SII, and the dimensions somewhat fit.
I cut the appropriate holes with an exacto knife, and voila here is my ghetto case for the MiSTer.
I am using the USB HUB Board with a Y-splitter cable. For now i did not experience any thermal issues.
Not shown in the picture, i also use a small Wifi dongle with a Realtek RTL871x chipset.

I decided to make my own SDRAM board (I've made two so far) and print the "MiSTer DE10 Nano Plates" by hugocraft on thingiverse. For the fan, I'm using a Noctua NF-A4X10-FLX 5V.

I'm really happy with this setup!

Just made a simple fan mount board which houses a 50cm Fan, as i wont be using the I/O any time soon ill able to get a larger fan so get a bit of extra cooling.

Wonder if the person who make the 3d printed file available could make one to house a 50mm fan rather than the standard 40mm....

I'm liking the PCE core =]

Recommend getting a >2A PSU and then cheap 'cctv splitter' & inline power switch from fleabay
