Did this to my sound card using my old school metal compass box and aluminium foil and finally grounded the faraday cage.

Result:
More sparkle and increased detail.A better mod than the one where you ground your processors heatsink !

Umm... looks kinda nice, but in these days of multi-layer PCBs, direct radiation is fairly insignificant vs. dirty power rails (assuming the ground planes were done correctly).

The power supply part of the card has already been modded.BTW,its plain horrible how uninteresting threads get so many view/replies while a practical mod thread such as this gets so few.....

I had this same idea a month or so but never went through with it.Glad to see you did it.

What you should do now is make it again but more profesional if you don't mind me saying.Great job!.

First of all, you might find that a mod gets more traction in the DIY section than here.

Second, faraday cages are supposed to protect devices from RF/EMI- I gotta agree with sgrossklass. I remain skeptical about the benefits.

Third, and probably most pertinent - perhaps not everyone agrees that this is a 'practical' and important mod and that the other threads are 'uninteresting'.

Sorry but this really isn't a big deal.
