After procrastinating for several months I have finally completed my MintyPi! Unfortunately I had one of the early boards and had some problems but with some wonderful customer service from Helder I recieved the replacement power board I needed to see the screen.
My original desire for the printed parts were to get the multi color ones but decided the clear parts would be more fun to play with as well as making the hole for the heatsink easier to place. Speaking of heatsink I took a heatsink from a motherboard chipset and cut it down to a reasonable size the used some arctic silver5 thermal compound to hold it to the pi.
Overall I'm very happy how it came out. Though wish I didnt have to take it apart to fix it. Ended up breaking my sd card pulling the board out. Though that did give me an opportunity to overclock the pi a little. Running 1050mhz on the core and the recommended overclock on everything else from retro pi's website. Also I put a penny in instead of a speaker just because I thought it looked cool
Show off your completed mintyPi, or post your build logs here!
