Antec NSK2480 Case Modifications to Fit ASUS GTX9800+

I have an Antec NSK2480 media PC case / enclosure, as seen here on their site:

I also have an old ASUS 9800GTX+ Dark Knight as seeen here on their site:

I would like to add this card to my media PC to replace the GT220 that is in there now, as I’m actually using the media PC as a media PC and playing games on it.

The 9800GTX+ Dark Knight ALMOST fits, but a metal divider is in the way of the power cable connections that the 9800GTX+ Dark Knight requires.

To fit the 9800GTX+ Dark Knight, I used an angle grinder with a cut off wheel and cut into the frame of the Antec NSK2480 case.






Archer C9 as Access Point

Just bought a TP-Link Archer C9. I have a WNR3500 with DDWRT on it already and it is rock stable and I just wanted to use the Archer C9 as an access point.

I was able to go through the configuration fine and set the Archer C9 up with a static IP of, but one of the steps requires you to enter a DNS server. I initially entered for Google’s DNS server and then plugged in the router as you would for an access point. Everything worked fine and it was extremely fast but I could not log into the management console.

I reset the router and tried again leaving the DNS server blank and it turns out that in the TP-Link management system, the DNS server is a required field. I also tried but it doesn’t like having an internal IP as the DNS server.

To get around this, bypass the initial set up steps and go straight into the console. To be continued.
