[Project] DE-CEPTION: My first case mod. - Page 4

post #31 of 58
my comp did something like that once. i had a corsair closed loop in an AMD build and OC'ed the cpu until the board started yelling at me. i pulled off the cooler with one hand and a new air cooler in the other hand and it turns out my TIM was all hard and failed ( mostly cause i didn't check it or monitor temps). i cleaned and applied new TIM and i was good to go.

Unfortunately i have already done that and it didn't help. I thought initially it was overheating and because my case was dusty i decided to give it a good clean. Took it all apart and cleaned it thoroughly and applied new arctic silver 5. Started it up, was alright for maybe a day then it started happening again

yeah I could try that but I'm trying to save every penny at the moment lol- not that that's working either. I have plans to build a CNC router soon too haha.

So I have a VERY TINY update that I wanted to share. I have removed the acrylic from the garage and brought it into the house.
I marked all the cuts that I am going to do in pencil but it seriously took FOREVER! Over 4 hours just because I was so meticulous with my measurements and the fact that I only have a 300mm ruler maximum didnt really help.

Tomorrow HOPEFULLY I will cut them out. I haven't marked out the holes for drilling or slots for cutting or any complex shapes yet- I plan to do that after I cut the smaller shapes, just because it will be easier for me. When I was marking the cuts, I left a 5mm gap between each piece to allow for error in my cutting as I am sure it won't be perfect. I'll make sure I get some pictures as well.

Also I am sorry about all the phone pictures I've taken so far.. I dont own a camera lol - hopefully I can borrow mums or something!
I will upload the photos that I took today (they are few and ugly tongue.gif) tomorrow.

Until next time!

Here's the photos from last night. honestly there's not much to see because its in pencil, taken in poor light and with a mobile phone lol.
From now on I'll be able to use my mums camera so hopefully that will be good smile.gif







Once again apologies for the awful pictures.

Don't go away though, there's more to come soon!

No worries mate! I'd love for you to see it when it's done! Hopefully it will look impressive because I don't want you to come if its not haha tongue.gif
Where abouts in Melbourne are you?

ANYWHO I have another small update.
Last night I marked my acrylic for cutting and tonight I cut it. The sheets I had were quite large and were actually incredibly hard to cut straight. I was initially cutting it with my scrollsaw but it was impossible to keep straight. Dad helped me while doing this for a while but then I decided to try out the jigsaw. 2cm into cutting and there was a BIG cracking sound.

At first I thought, GREAT this is perfect and thought I had created a large crack because under the paper thats what it looked like! luckily it was just a chip - good thing I left 5mm contingency around every cut - it helped a lot because I can't cut as straight as I thought i could lol.

anyway, next I tried a hacksaw which was good until the edge of the plexi hit the top of the hacksaw so out the window went that idea.
FINALLY I decided to try a mitre saw and this actually worked perfectly! I made a little gap with some wood and laid the acrylic across and cut it through into smaller pieces. Once I had the smaller pieces I went on to using my scrollsaw again to finish the pieces off.

Here are some action shots smile.gif





This is how I was cutting with the scrollsaw. It was nice to have the little light on it because it made it easy to see where i outlined. It also had a laser, but it sucks. Its closer to being at a right angle than the direction that it is actually cutting haha


And of course some shots of the final cuts!




I also laid them all out on my floor and used a pair of my US Size 9 Vans as a size reference. Quite a bit of plastic there :O


Next up I have to mark out all the holes and shapes within the plastic to cut out. I might do it tomorrow because I NEED a rest right now. Didnt sleep well last night lol
Anyway hope this is enough to keep you hungry for more!
Till next time!

Now that my computer is somewhat stable and stays on for a while I can easily start marking out every detail I need to put into the aluminium and plastic including the holes for drilling.
Further to this, my computer now doesn't want to run any games as it would rather crash and burn than let me play so I now have nothing else to do in my free time other than mod.. (and watch movies tongue.gif) so the pace may pick up a little bit soon.
Over Christmas I also have two weeks off and I'm hoping to get a fair chunk of work done during that time as well.

Also I am changing the design slightly. Instead of screwing EVERYTHING together, I have decided to glue certain pieces of the HDD and 5.25" racks to make sliding easier. Initially the screws had to be countersunk and very short for clearances but glue will help alot and make it work smoother smile.gif

Anyway, gonna go and mark some pieces for holes to drill in the correct spots.
