I love popping back reading this build log.

But a pattern is forming:

IT Diva updates > a couple of people comment along the line "this is epic, this is huge, this is awesome, I am subbing etc." > IT Diva thanks them and explains or answers all there questions. > Then I get time to read and catch up.


For all those who haven't yet, check the other builds IT Diva has done, they are just as crazy and inspirational.

Keep it coming IT Diva thumb.gif

NZXT sent me the PSU along with the 630's. I was hoping for a 1200W, but the builds I have planned for the 630's are basically mainstream / upgrade builds that are more representative of what buyers of those cases are most likely to be using them for. Even a 1000W is more than enough.

I'll do some more research before using it.

Seems that maybe the QC suffered a bit on the early production to get stock ready for market.

I'll take this one apart and have a look before trusting expensive parts to it.


The window mockup is just that, a mockup, something temporary to get measurements and data from to be able to make the best actuator selection, and figure out a way to make it all work. It's all put together with double sided tape so that I don't have to drill any holes untill everything is perfectly engineered. The piano hinge is fugly, but it holds all that weight with just double sided tape and allows the window to move it's full travel range.

For the final window, I have 4 sets of small perfectly styled hinges and a 12" X 12" X .090" piece of 7075 T6 aluminum to make stress relief pads for each hinge and actuator attach bracket from.

The hinge sets are McMaster Carr PN: 11955A66 and A67


Don't be such a stranger,

Hey, yeah it's been a while, dealing with my car getting dented (worked out in my favor, I get a check and can buy a new full frame camera with that money!), and a stupid three-month ASUS rma fiasco. Frustration out the wazoo, but I do what I can, I try hard not to spread myself too thin. I can keep up with this though, aside from technical and in-depth bits, I'm catching most of it! (pictures entice me).
Props for keeping up with the updates yourself, I have wanted to do step-by-step updates to projects but simply never put forth the effort to do so. It takes some doing to chronicle projects, especially such extensive and detailed ones.

Oh cool, I forgot or didn't realize that NZXT was a sponsor, but it's a good choice of them to do so, congrats on that. I might inquire about that in a PM... biggrin.gif I've been interested in doing a build, and I'm a photographer so naturally I could showcase it very well. Humorously, when I sent images to ASUS' RMA department of damage on a motherboard they sent me, the rep was surprised at the image quality! We'll see if I have the time to get a sponsored build going, someday perhaps.

Thanks for the info on parts, while I'm not building right now, knowing the name of a reputable (I assume or you wouldn't use them) parts manufacturer/supplier will help in the future I imagine.

So from your posts it's coming apparent you have some background in electronics, is that self-taught, profession, or schooling, if you don't mind? My knowledge is very limited but I am impressed by what you've utilized to make your own PCB's and your execution is clean and well thought out. Where'd the key fob remote come from? part of a kit, or did you taylor the receiver to it's transmission frequency?
To say in brief, I do like that mod.

Does the diptrace require etching with a tool/CNC or is it chemical? Or did I misunderstand what I saw and it's some sort of transfer process from a print of the circuit?

I took a brief moment but there's more detail than I can read through I think.


Way to go, keep it up! The door looks great by the way, and your mention of mirror acrylic makes me curious and excited, that sounds pretty; if I'm correct in assuming it's a mirror you can cut to shape for the spaces in the case you intend to fill.

Thread Starter 
Another weekend of hard labor:


In the "Just can't catch a break" category, to be able to squeeze all three of the new pump / res/ modules in, along with 2 linear actuators, I needed a few more inches of space behind the optical drive cage.

To manage the needed space, I had to turn the nicely mounted secondary PSU sodeways and on edge.

it doesn't look as nice as it did i its original setup, but I have the extra few inches now.


Now the cool part, . . . . well in a minute after I rant for a moment . . .

I'm beginning to really hate metal work, it wears my hobby level power tools out wayyyy too fast and really tests my patience.

The good side is that I have some new tools now that should survive a few more serious builds.


Anyway,

I made up the stress plates for the side window hinges and mounted the mating hinge halves on the chassis.

Everything went as planned, just a buttload of grunt work to make them.

I still have to make the stress plate for where the actuator clevices mount on the side window, but I stuck them on with some double sided tape to test.


It's nice to see my initial vision as a working reality:


Hope you liked it,

Darlene
