This is my key switch mod! In the beginning I thought of just replacing the power switch but I needed something more useful. I turn my PC on and off often, but I don't want to use the key all the time. So what I did was that I made the key switch enable and disable (turn on/off) the main power switch. So when I'm close to the PC I can just leave the power switch on, and when I'm away I can just turn the power switch off so you can't turn the PC on without the key.

Tnx everyone! It didn' t take me that long to make. I got the switch at ebay, it you look around you can find em for really cheap(I got 3 for 10$). If you have any other questions feel free to ask!

Thats a pretty smart Idea, Where did you get the key-switch at?

Rakien18.03.2006 06:44
Karl, you did a realy nice job on this mod. It looks very clean and profesional. How much time did it take you to make? The only thing missing in my opinion is a nice little keychaine made out of an old processor or some old computer components. ;D

In other words...a safety-switch!!Well...That was a good idea in the past...and still is a good one today!!I would've installed an alarm that when someone hit the Power switch...and the key wasn't there to de-activate the alarm the PC would just scream the hell off the houses' rooftop!!It's an idea that I probably will explore in the future!!Thanks for reminding me!!5/5
