Got the RGB Remote ..but don't have a male RGB pins to connect. They gave me the remote controlled unit with female pin outs. Should have been male...as the RGB Strip has female . Bah.
Ordered male to male pins, and the store upgraded the shipping to overnight from California to NJ.

Have few scratches on the Acrylic. Should have handled it more carefully last few weeks when it was lying around. Never thought the etching would come out this good. O well too late now, not paying for redoing it on a new piece. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Looking great,

Try commandant 4 "car polish"to get the scratches out.thumb.gif

Thanks.

Built a new frame for the RGB around the acrylic. The home depot roll 8" x 10 feet.

Tried doing a single U channels and it was a pain. So made it somewhat similar to the old way I did the frame.
Didn't take pictures..so steps were :
  • Cut 8"x 15" out.
  • Used Styrofoam as the base under the top panel, and pressed down. The PEMS made holes in it.
  • Drilled through holes.
  • Put the aluminum sheet on top and taped it.
  • Used the guide holes to drill through.
  • mounted to the top panel.
  • Cut out the middle part (to see through).
  • Mounted with acrylic
  • Drew the border out.
  • Left 2MM for the RGB to fit through and did the bends . Vertical bend is 10mm.

Frame:


Frame from under


12V cable to RGB Remote.
Got the Connector from RadioShack. its called Coaxial power connector. If the guy at RaidoShack didn't show me ...would have never figured that out

Thanks Seross, and I see you use spoilers now. You must have had a dedicated OCN administrator following you around for past few months. laugher.gif

The RGB really emphasize any scratches. Only way to even buff them out is with RGB on and I need the Novus 1-2-3. The meguliar #10 and #17 did not help much.

I am done with this build. Very stable.
Did massive video conversion and was fun to see it run so fast, and fans throttling up on major loads.

Still arguing with OCZ on replacement drives. Had to get customer service department involved. I will write an email to the CEO if I have to.

Congratulations on being finished.... Believe it or not I did not have anyone say anything to me about the spoilers... I wish they would have then I would have know how to use them sooner rolleyes.gif .. Must be nice to see it working like you want it to... Now its time to start again??

Thanks Seross.

Tried to load it to the max with 6 simultaneous video encoding and set Xilisoft video encoder to use GPU CUDA and all cores.
Maxed it out and each video encoding produced 2 GB files with total of 12GB files produced at the end of the encoding.

Downloaded files, browsed YouTube videos in background seamlessly

Temps on CPU hit 48C
Temps on GPU like 38C
NJ temp are like 75F outside and in the house AC set at 72F

In terms of utilization , CPU 100%, GPU1 max was like 65%, and GPU2 max was like 15%


Fans didn't reach 100% as curve controller for 100% is past 55C


I don't think there is anything more I can throw at this computer.
Don't see any reason to even overclock at this point. The baseline is much more than I imagined it to be.


Maybe next month I will start again for son's computer - AMD build. Maybe this is too much for him. Thoughts?
Need a nice case for this ATX, which should be aesthetic for the kitchen bar/family room. [Not CaseLabs]
