Custom PS3 Sleeper Gaming PC

Built this from a non-functioning PS3 and a 1060 I had sitting in my basement. Using it mostly for emulators and indie games.

PSU is an HDPlex 400w paired with a 330w Dell power brick

- Working original PS3 power button with an Arduino capacitive touch sensor
- Automatic open/close top lid for airflow when the PC is on
- Working PS3 power & HDD LEDs
