Nice work so far!

Like the looks of B & D samples, but they're both too see-thru. They look like they're off an old Fender amp?

Hello Subs!

Next week I have a week off from work. Then I can finally begin working on this build again! A sick cat has making me work on this build almost impossible. *The things you do for love* The cat is fine now so I can begin working on this project. So be assured.

Edit:
For now you must do it with this photo. In the meanwhile I ordered a new HDD. Because the old one had died upon me.


To bad, not just enough space to put the GPU in. Hmm, better solve that problem in my vacation!

PS: *And no, there is no LEGO Starwars box on the left, lol*

I have been thinking of doing this with a budget mini-ITX board that I have laying around, but I am going to have to get my hands on a 1155 CPU. I have an elderly radio from 1959 (has that nice art-deco look) that would probably fit the board. If it doesn't fit, I'll buy an Intel NUC for the hell of making a nice media center machine for watching videos and internet browsing, plus that means I can use an i5 even with the space constraint.

Nice build, it is really coming together visually, is there any change that you could somehow get that Zalman CPU cooler to face the proper direction for the front to back airflow, or is the GPU too close. I like the painted heatsink for the GPU, any heat related issues with that? Also, Sub'd!

Hello speedytech7. Thanks for your story bro! Glad to be inspiring.
No, the Zalman won't fit that way at all. There is the GPU and the socket that is in it's way . To bad! Tried it.
No, there aren't restrictions that I know of now. But will find it out when I'm going to stress test it someday. wink.gif

So the vacation is over and the time was not on my hand at all. To bad!
It was wonderfull weather here so I was more busy with my new garden then being inhome for the build.

But here is another update for you folks!

Bending the heatpipe.




The first idea was to use this, but when I tried to make it in the radio, it failed bigtime.




So then I thought up a solution for the problem. Using screws instead.






And added an extension nut for bolting the motherboardtray on it.


Then I checked if it was level.


Tightening the bolts.


The motherboard in place to check if everything fits.


And it does! *Pwewh!


Till next guys!

Update!

Didn't have much to do anyway so did a little work on the build.


Maybe I will place the tube here.




Did some cutting there


Made it smaller


Sanding it


And placed it back to see the result.


Sanded the wood to make the fan fit tight.


Needed nailpolish for marking the holes for the motherboardtray. *why would I need it anyway tongue.gif*


Drilled the holes in it.


Perfect fit. Screwed it tight.


Tadaa (Don't mind the bigger PSU, I wanted to know if it fits also if needed so)


Endresult for today.



Till next folks!
