I can now turn on/off & reset my vrpc remotely.

I wanted to remotely turn on/off my htpc first but the gizmo is too big in the In Win Chopin, so I mounted it in my VR-PC (Caselabs Mercury S3).
And after some trouble shooting I managed to turn my rig on from the bedroom!

>>34454 Sweet!

I'm currently working on a system to test my internet connection and restart the router automatically if required, either by sending commands or forcing a power cycle. Should hopefully minimize down time for merlins-bar on my home server when my router has it's occasional problems :)

Okay, I managed to fit it in the in Win Chopin!
And it works just fine, no more getting up walking to the pc and getting zapped by static electricity (only happened a few times). Go lazy!

Now I only need a bigger heatsink, cause the i7-4790k is getting toasty with this tiny one.

But anyway the USB remote is in! I'm going to test it around the neighborhood, maybe it opens garage doors too ;)

MSI, could you please add labels on the front panel header?!

Moved the rear heatsink fan to the rear of the case, which made installing a little better.

It fits but it was a pita to install.
