OK so we worked on it till 5am last night and then even more today. Had tons of problems, and I didn't take a lot of pictures along the way because I was very frustrated with the build problems I was having. For instance around 6pm things it was nearly done except for the buttons on the keypad. While I was securing them with hot glue, the number 6 key got some glue down inside the mechanical switch. We wasted over an hour getting it out. I got a text from my friend that is also attending quakecon that they close the registration at 7pm. I thought he meant for people that were not already preregistered, but apparently not. Even though we payed for preregistration months ago, they gave away our seats because we didn't get there in time. That was a pretty low move for them to make IMO. I didn't know anything about this being that I've never been to quakecon before. I must say that I was more then a little pissed about that. We decided to just go home and game from there tonight and then tomorrow go back before noon and get our seats. Before I go to bed I wanted to finally post an update on the build.

The fan grill was quite a pain to get mounted right. I finally had to bend it ever so slighting to get it to fit without filing down the sides.


This is my idea I came up with for the screw mountings. I would make a large base with steelputty.


Then screw in the screw mountings


Then mount the whole thing in place using JB weld.


Same thing for the nixie tubes, but this time I used a crose bar to hold on to the nixie tube socket tabs. Unfortunately one of the mounts on the nixie tubes broke off when I put too much pressure on it. I had to leave it that way because I didn't have 4 hours to wait for the jb weld to cure to try again. I plan on going back later and fixing this.


The underside of the top HD slot also broke free from the jb weld, so I made it permanent with steel putty.


For the mounting of the CPU meter I used an L bracket mounted to the case with jb weld then hot glued it in.


Here is all the hardware mounted and the wires connected. This went really fast surprisingly.


All the hardware connected. It looks like a mess right now. I need to do some serious cable management to clean this up.


The build as of 5am Friday morning


Here's how it looks right now.


I had to drop a few features temporarily to get it operational for quakecon. Here's what remains:
Install H60
Install other two hard drives
Hook up the top HD slot with power and a data cable
Clean up and sleeve all the cables
Mount electronics box

While the computer is functional, it's not complete yet. It will be a while before I have more updates. Thanks for the subs everybody. I will return soon!

Looks great! Good luck at QuakeCon. I might try to swing by for a couple of hours early on Sunday just to walk around and take some pix. They always have had seats left over, so that sucks if they really gave yours away.

Welp. I failed to attend quakecon this year. Apparently when they gave away our seats, it was for the rest of the convention. Lame. Oh well, that gives me a whole year to finish up the few remaining things on this mod. =/

I took some nice photos of the build thus far.


























There is still some work to be done on the insides... A lot of work. hehe
post #208 of 220
Wow.. they gave your seats away altogether? That's lame as hell. So sorry.

On the bright side, your rig looks incredible and the photos are great! smile.gif
post #209 of 220
Looks amazing.
How's the temps on the 680?
Are you going to WC?

Wow man, this turned out absolutely amazing, great work :D
