Neither can I! I spend most of my free time drawing layouts to find the best way to route cables, and amongst all, to try and shave off as much as I can from the total thickness!

Modifying the radiator to incorporate barbs coming out of the top is having me pretty puzzled as well... But I'll leave that for now, and build the chassis wink.gif

Thanks! It all started like this, I had an 'itch' to test the capabilities of Trinity, and also needed a truly portable desktop biggrin.gif

I really keen to see this build come together. I kind of want a similar light weight FM2 build that I can easily transport.

Thank you! I'd really like it if this build could serve you of any kind of inspiration thumb.gif

Much appreciated! smile.gif


Tonight it's getting late, and so far I've decided to cushion the U profile with high density foam and leave the screen 'floating' inside, held on by the 6 support screws and the bottom channel.

Also soldered all the adapters I need for the board, but no pics as it's too late and I would disturb my family if I started fiddling with stuff around the house smile.gif

It's simply a DC jack for the LVDS converter and a +12V 4 pin cable for the board that go plugged into a single molex. I'll use the 5V side of that same molex to power the LEDs that will light the AMD logo wink.gif

I'll finally cut down the stands to size and start cutting the U profile tomorrow morning that I have some hours to spare, and no one to disturb thumb.gif


Stay tuned!

And a quick update!







This morning I put the motherboard stands, mounted the HD cage, and decided the final component layout. So far this is what I've got. Every position is definitive, except the LVDS converter, which for obvious reasons isn't placed yet (the HDMI one is a bit longer, so I cannot screw anything yet).

The PSU isn't obviously going there (it blocks the 1st RAM slot), so I'm waiting for the cable extension to get here so I can modify it and build a PSU bracket.


And the cable management is OF COURSE not definitive biggrin.gif

Additionally, I still have to modify the barbs on the radiator, as I will be cutting them down and installing some pneumatic nylon 90deg barbs, by slightly melting the plastic and pressing them in. Then, the entire assembly will be sealed with polyurethane silicone (the stuff is messy, but goddamned strong!).


Hopefully tomorrow or Friday I will get the show on the road and mount the display assembly. Thankfully the U profile is high enough to make the panel clear all the nuts installed on the rear of the shell! Now I'm happy I bought the 8mm inner width instead of the 6mm one smile.gif


And the last thing I'll do is stick the L profile on the topmost section of the shell, and build the rear panel. And something else I'm not going to tell because it's a surprise!

I have always wanted to do something like this, or build one into a small briefcase. Would have to have a good GPU for my needs though, otherwise just just go for a $500 A8 laptop

It's the only thing that's going to work though. I like the idea of your layout for the radiator. I assume you're going to do a push configuration so you can keep it slimmer instead of adding the 25-30mm of extra clearance needed for a push-pull setup.

I jumped on this instead of a laptop because of some very basic things:

1) Upgradeability. This platform can hold any mITX-based system from now on.
2) Performance. This aren't gimped down 35W parts. This is a fully functional desktop computer!
3) Lols. It isn't nearly as much fun buying a laptop than building this biggrin.gif


When you take the above into consideration, building a system of this kind is a no brainer for me in favor of a laptop. Sure you don't have as much mobility (due to the nearly 60mm thickness), and rely on an external power supply (even if it can be a battery, or a lighter connector, or whatever that gives 12-25VDC with at least 100W), but the performance and the fun factor makes it a much more logical build for me.

The stock cooler is a ridiculous 25mm aluminium chunk and it works, this Antec is way more powerful than that! biggrin.gif

And yep, I'm going for a pull only, still deciding on the fan setup. Probably an AMD stock heatsink scavenged fan, as I'm not really needing that much of a performance. Or maybe I'll get a Kaze Slim. thumb.gif
