    Computer Transformation!

    Basically What I am trying to achieve:

    So essentially I had this idea with my Alienware 17 laptop (NOT the 17x). And I am trying to get the laptop inside of a NZT Phantom 410 gaming case. My idea is to have the laptop inside the case so it looks like a desktop. And it has all the functionality of one. As well as better cooling (has built in fans inside the case) to keep it from overheating.

    Features That I NEED If I Want To Do This Project:

    Make the power button on the case work (Connect the case power button to a wire on my computer maybe? No idea if this exists)
    Allow the computer to breath while inside the case. Don't want it to overheat at all. Costs a bit of money
    Have some leftover room for some LED strips inside (just for looks)

    I would rather keep the computer in tact (not take it apart) during this process so that I don't risk damaging or losing parts. Although I can take it apart if needed.

    Reason Why I Would Like To Do This:

    It is really down to 2 things when I am trying to do this transfer / conversion. Looks, and cooling. Really just down to that. Might seem like alot of money to be putting into something just for looks and cooling when I could buy a laptop cooling product that cools much better but I really just want to complete this project because it would be something different. Plus it would look cool.

    FYI:

    I have not bought the case yet. That was just one I was looking at. So if you see any other "stylish" large cases that might be able to fit my 17" computer then go ahead and post away

    Thanks,

    So you are trying to shove your entire laptop inside a tower?

    And a little bit of "why the fuck would I do this" on the side as well? Just sell the laptop, buy a proper PC and live life as the almighty PC Master Race.

    I would.
    But the amount of times I travel says no.

    So you plan to transform your portable gaming laptop into a full on gaming tower so you can move around with it more easily? What you're implying doesn't make sense, if you travel a lot then why not just keep the laptop?

    Why not just sell that overpriced pile of shit and build an actual desktop?
    I am the seer in the dark,
    the vagabond of yore,
    valediction.
    I am the sum of all your parts,
    and proprietor of all.
    A miasma,
    the conclusion,
    blackmonger of Inlé,
    valediction.
    Synapses fray,
    my form now vivid,
    as torpor sets and blood grows tepid.
    With every ounce of flesh now offered,
    I hold your corpse within my coffers.
    Knitted cells now split asunder,
    stand alongside me brother.
    Take your place amongst my Owsla,
    we march at dawn now and forever.

    OK let me start from the begining

    I want to change it to a desktop when im at home (keep it in tact inside the house without taking it apart so it can be taken out of the case when I need to travel) So im not taking it apart because I want to be able to use it as a desktop and a laptop.
    It literally is like buying a brand new laptop taking it out of the box. And shoving it into a case without taking it apart at all.
