almost done!!!!

apologies for my slackery, but heres a couple more. in these first picks, its just my airbrush, a clean slate, and the start....and thats it. i had full intentions of documenting the re-painting of the front, but, yeah....

then here we have a bit of the hardware mounted with the front panel done. i mounted the fan controler and the switches, but i still have one more switch to put in. and yes, one knob on the controler is currently UA, and will be handled accordingly upon retreval. all the front side cables are sleeved, now i just need to finish two 4 pin leads on the psu and the fans, then sleeving will be done.

this weekend i "should" have everything ready to fire up, to include the plexi backing and resin fill for the cut out items.
um....not to sure what else to put, so, ask em if you got em.

and in more news:

heres a huge milestone, water testing!!! its been running for about an hour with no leaks, but i did infact man-handle the fittings, plus i have a bit of experience with hydro/elec work. anywho, here it is.

i also put some more work in on the top, installing the fans and grills.

note: in an ealier post, i chatted about running the FC in a parallel circuit. this only half works. the idea was to have each knob add a bit more juice, sending full power when all 4 knobs (per bank) are at max. however, turning a single knob maxes the fans attached. this leads me to believe the amps arent whats being governed by the potentiameters, the volts are. (i should have known this though) so, all knobs at minimum = .30A and a couple volts, but one knob maxed = .30A and 12V. makes me wonder if its just the fan wiring creating the resistance....and the leds for fan activity dont work properly. probably would work if i just ran a single power, and individual grounds. but, no harm, and i can always chat with the manufacturer and request some new cables to revert to a stock condition or text more (for money/shipping at worst).

That looks awesome. I like to front panel paint the second time around too. Still think a skull would look good though wink.gif

well i suppose its time for some finished pictures. i dont have a cool picture area, but maybe ill see if i can scrap one together soon. so, here it is:

IMG_0303.jpg
IMG_0311.jpg
IMG_0315.jpg

as for OC results, i decided to sit at 4.2ghz with ht off. after doing tests and such, i was going to sit at 3.8 with ht on, and 1.39v, but i did some more playing around, and figure i really dont need ht. 4.0 and 3.8 were done with 200/20 and 19, while 4.2 is sitting at 200/21. remember, this is a c0 chip, so a lowly *1.43v* is required to maintain this speed! however, stress testing temps were great, only seeing the hottest core hit 69c. during bf3 the chip is in the 50's, so i suppose ill run her till she blows. i havent started on the gfx oc yet, i just maxed it in ccc. when i get back from this trip i have to take, (2 weeks) ill start in on that sucker.

i took the raptor out and put a reg 300gb hdd that i use for general storage in, as im always saving and pulling files from it. the raptors are going to sit in a small 2 bay rack and connect through the esata pci plate that came with the mobo, and be use for fraps 'in stuff. good times!!!

That turned out really nice! Congratulations for a job well done. One of these days I will attempt a scratch build and have played with a few designs. What does the 'station 6' stand for or relate to? I kind of miss the skull that was on the front panel, but the new paint matches the rest of the case better. If I had to criticise anything, it would be the look of the bottom intake fans on the front. I don't really like the look of those covers. Are they fan filters or something?

Again Great job! +rep to you and thank you for serving thumb.gif

thank you bob! and indeed, do a scratch build, the work really pays off when you look at your own creation.

the bulky items on the side panels are just 3 part filters, with no fans behind em. i used some regular nuts and screws to attach them. they are kind of odd, but i didnt really like any other options. the station 6 thing refers to what me and a buddy say when we're bout to slack off/go home for the day. and oddly, he doesnt do any sort of computer work.

thanks again.
