[Build Log] TJ07 - Restitution | Update: 10th February, I did some sleeving! - Page 9

Fun times! Girlfriend's pain tablets gave her serotonin poisoning so back she goes.

In the up and up, I bought some tools! Some black rivets, a pop rivet gun, a cordless drill (nothing fancy) and a big tool box to sort screws into (gives me bubbly feelings inside to have screws and watercooling bits organised finally!) and some imperial drill bits.

Drilled out the core of a thumbscrew that got broken off in the pillars to hold in the PSU mount and tapped it with a 6/32 screw and high torque setting on the drill thumb.gif

Also drilled out the (only 4) rivets holding in the motherboard slider so I can flip it around to the other side but first all the bits need to get paaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaainted. Woo.

Then I need to find someone to work some magic the TJ herself. Weld the front, smooth it out and fill in some holes. Yes. Holes. The sod before me did some nasty things to it; a real botch job.

Worked a pretty big week last week so all nights were a write off, weekend was spent sleeping and working more and now finally back into the normal swing of things so I have time and energy to work on the project again! Yay!

Also thinking of upgrading my GPU. The 6990 is quick, but I wouldn't mind something a big newer that puts out less heat. Makes it mighty hard to sleep at night sometimes!

EDIT: Oh, also! DHL contacted me about the damaged parts so I think they're admitting fault. It's not back on CZ's side to sort things out with me I believe. We'll see how it progresses.

Until next time!

Well, as you say fun times. Best recovery to the gf though.
It was good to see Ricardo pay a visit, it shows what a man of integrity he is, willing to fix something that wasn't his fault.
Also good to see DHL respond to it, hopefully they will admit it's their fault.

Some heavy-duty work yet, welding! Looking forward to seeing the front when it's done.
If you do upgrade the gpu, I'd certainly recommend a 780 variant for a replacement card. I recently sold my 7950's and replaced them with a single 780 Ti, very impressed with the gaming performance. Yet it's very cool running, even overclocked and juiced to the max.
They aren't cheap though, but the regular 780's are a good buy now.

Thanks, I'll pass it along smile.gif
She's going into surgery in two days which will hopefully fix it.

CZ customer service is awesome. Top thumbs up out of ten etc.

Yes! Need to find a good metal fabricator in Perth but everyone's sites are pretty meh and non informative. I'll poke around tonight.
I was looking at 780's. They seem to be a nice little sweet spot. Just not sure whether GSync or Mantle etc.

Thanks for the input, dude!

EDIT: Oh wait yes I did some sleeving!

Not too shabby for my first try ever! I used Bitspower sleeving and heatshrink and was actually really surprised by the level of quality!


DoF!

Ends here. Not sure if I should move it up some to cover the reset or not...
