My Philadelphia Eagles Superbowl LII Winners Arcade

Post by rkwallace on Thu May 24, 2018 8:57 am

This is a pic of my full standing Philadelphia Eagles Superbowl LII Champions arcade.  Read it could take up to a month for my 16tb hard drives to arrive and complete this project.  Oh well Crying or Very sad

It started here:


The end result:


Internals that are constantly being upgraded:

I bought a basket off Ebay to store the bluetooth keyboard and controllers, cost me about $11.



Big changes here.  I'm always doing something.  I changed out the motherboard to a Gigabyte GA-H87N-WIFI, I wanted additional SATA Ports (4, instead of using USB 3.0 for faster file copying) and onboard WIFI instead of USB.  I bought a Icy Dock Hard Drive Enclosure (4 drive) off Ebay for $39.  My plan is using 1 SATA Port for OS Drive (SSD), 2 right now for my 16tb Setup (External Hard Drives will be saved for backups, copy data to 8tb internal hard drives) and 1 for the upcoming PS3 / PSN Hard Drive (24tb Arcade System).   Big things in little packages.

P.S.  Upgraded the Graphics Card to a ZOTAC Geforce GTX 1050i, needed more horse power under the hood.

After 3 weeks my 16tb hard drives came in, not too bad. I know I gave Chris the blues but in the end the wait wasn't that bad. Now I'm off to the races, thanks to all and I will post after completion.

Still haven't completed my arcade. My initial 8tb hard drive crashed and now I have to have it recloned. Chris has been terribly busy, his computer crashed, and he was out of town. He probably hasn't gotten to my emails so I'm dead in the water. Embarassed

I know what you mean, sorry to hear about the crash. i had to have my drives recloned also, my advice go out now to buy 2 back up drives and clone a backup as soon as you get your drives back 1st thing before playing, as to avoid any further heartache.

Excellent advice, I planned on that from the beginning and got the 8+ (second hard drive backed up). The 1st hard drive (with the install files) was the one that crashed. Therefore I didn't get time to back it up or install my arcade.

I haven't been able to contact anyone to clone the 1st hard drive so I started an online update to see how far I can get. I know Chris has been busy and have no animosity about getting this done so I'm trying all avenues.

Baby steps but I will finish. Very Happy Very Happy

Chris telephoned me last night. The fix is in. Talk about GREAT Customer Service, I never expected a personal telephone call with his busy schedule. He truly stands by his body of work.

I had a pos seagate drive die on me when I first bought the setup also, its saddening to have happen after all the waiting. Glad you are on the up and up. I like your setup but if I could give one piece of constructive advice: You look pretty comfortable playing with computer components and that means you can play with arcade components, not that much different to learn. I recommend trying some of the different buttons and sticks vs the tankstick ,you may find some interesting options. But this is coming from a guy that still doesn't have his built so take that for what it's worth lol.
