[Build Log] Mad Alien 900D Murder

post #1 of 57
Thread Starter 
 

 

 
Welcome to Mad Alien PC-A70 Murder

 

In the beginning there was...
- The year is 2009 and I found the webpage www.million-dollar-pc.com [MDPC] and boy oh boy were there case mods. A few stood out, but only one really captured my attention, namely the Murderbox. The details, the inventions and the layout... wow. This was something that would follow me and hunt me, and still does. Its logged in my brain and soul, I cannot get it out by simply forgetting about it, nope, that will not do. I must build it. But not a replica, rather a heavily inspired mod based upon a case I have now - the Lian Li PC-A70black.

 

 

 

Her is a picture of what everything looks like right now.

 

 

 

- I am fully aware of the fact that the Murderbox MKI / MKII is a Silverstone TJ07 and a legend among case modders and that this case would be the obvious choice, it is a nice case, but also an old case [2005] while the PC-A70 was released in late 2007 and I bought mine in august 2008, meaning I've had it for some time and also used it. It housed a Gigabyte M-ITX motherboard - talk about wast of space... lol. So, I need a new computer, I need performance and I need a designed case. Since I already have a fulltower case that I spent $400,- on when I bought it, spending $350-400,- more on a fulltower makes no sense if one are going to modify and rebuild the case. I even looked at Corsair 800D, but soon realized that the difference between these 3 cases is very little. So, since I have the PC-A70, I might as well use it.

The murder.
- So We have the Murderbox as inspiration and I will murder the layout and look of the PC-A70. But in order to do this, I will first need to get some tools and equipment which I do not have at the moment. So I will make a list and make that happen.
-When it comes to the hardware of the computer, lets just say that the only thing that is a 100% solid decision is that it will be OC & Water cooled and Mayhem Pastel White coolant. For them who have seen my other tread, I left the refrigeration cooling, so I will not use that. One of the reasons for this is noise and moisture problems, but also that delidding the cpu will drop the temperature between 15-25 C degrees.

- That is it for now. I will need a better camera so that I can log the development, case mods are useless without a good camera. So stay tuned.

The equipment needed.

- This entry will cover equipment I know I need. There might be more added after this, but to get things started, I will make a list here. The prices is in Swedish kroner. Safety equipment is something I do not cover here, but will use. These are budget tools, but not poor quality, so this equipment will do the job and then some.

*** Edited ***
 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

I've been thinking some more about tools and know that I will need a to mill holes, cut out sections etc. Laser & water cutting is great, but that service cost money. One can do that by hand if one build a jig - maximum movement area. With the Dremel Trio I will be able to mill, cut and have a mobile column drill. But I do not feel it totally replaces the jigsaw (inexperienced perhaps). I have faith in this one that I do not need laser or water cut parts, and Dremel is quality brand so that is a bonus. Here is a demo video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nljQ-sGW2x4


  • DREMEL® TRIO 6800-2/8 - From Conrad: art.nr 089313.
  • Price: 699,- (was 1299,-)

  • Biltema Jigsaw 810 W - Art.nr: 17-040. This jigsaw has a quick clamp release that makes changing the blades simple and quick, but the nicest feature would have to be that it is variable speed which helps when doing detailed cutting.
  • Edge Attachment - This part came with the jigsaw and helps to keep your cuts straight, it attaches to the jigsaw and runs against the edge of whatever is being cut to make straight lines.
  • I will also get some replacement blades for metal.
  • Price: 399,-
  • Biltema drill 710 W - Art.nr: 17-377 This drill is variable speed, reversible and has a keyless chuck... all features to look for when buying a good drill. My opinion is that cordless drills are not as good as corded for modding purposes, especially when cutting metal.
  • Price: 239,-
  • Biltema Drill bits - Art.nr: 20-421: Basically the more sizes and types of drill bit you have the better, there are bits made specifically for the different materials to be drilled and using the right bit for the job always makes things easier
  • Price:79,90,-
  • Jula Hole Saws - Art.nr: 189001. The sizes I own are the most commonly used and are 80mm, 92mm and 3/4 inch. Hole saws consist of the hole saw, an arbor and a pilot bit. A hole saw is not a cheap tool but they really make cutting blowholes simple.
  • Price: 149
  • Biltema Multitool - Art.nr: 17-083: This will be used for small jobs
  • Price: 139,-

- Machine sanders is extremely useful, manual sanding is one thing and also necessary, but one definitely want both options. So two of them.

  • Biltema edge sander 105 W - Art.nr: 17-004
  • Price: 139,-
  • Biltema excenter sander 210 kW - Art.nr: 17-0281
  • Price: 259,-
  • And ofc changeable sandpaper.
  • Biltema tool kit - 69 parts - Art.nr: 71-005
  • Price: 299,-
  • Biltema steel ruler 500mm - Art.nr: 16-133
  • Price: 50,-
  • Biltema digital calliper - Art.nr: 16-105
  • Price: 199,-
  • Biltema Files 5 pcs - Art.nr: 19-992
  • Price: 70,-
  • Biltema Needle Files - Art.nr: 19-942
  • Price: 35,-
  • Biltema Rivet kit - Art.nr: 12-1060
  • Price: 80,-
  • Biltema Hacksaw - Art.nr: 19-9522
  • Price: 32,-
  • 10 pcs replacement blades - Art.nr: 19-9523
  • Price: 23,-
AppleMark
  • Biltema Brake (sheet metal bender) - Art: 12-218
  • Price: 799,-
  • Biltema Folding Tong 45° - Art.nr: 120-922
  • Price: 240,-
  • Biltema Shears - Art.nr: 71-606
  • Price: 80,-

*** Edit: ADDED TOOLS*** I did not remember the name last night, but also need these.


  • Biltema Scriber - Art.nr: 19-940
  • Price: 50,-
  • Biltema Automatic Puncher - Art.nr: 19-975
  • Price: 45,-


Total price: 4 105,-,- ($636,-) - not too bad. If I had chosen brands that are popular and last a life time, the price would have been 4-5 times higher. But for this type of work, what I have selected is more than enough.

- I think that is it for tools. When it comes to cooper pipes and the tools that go along with that, that is something I will need to properly check before I invest in anything. Regarding sheet metal thickness, I will use 0.5 and 1.2 mm. that ofc depend on the location of the part I manufacture.

Thanks for reading.

They are okay and will last for years. They are quite common, and I needed a excuse anyway to get some tools... lol

That depend on how one look at things, but yes, I do agree... he he.

- I know there are quite a few modders out there, but in my mind, very few makes me think or express: wow, great work. Even known brands are producing cases that are, for lack of better words, ugly. Fans with LED's, too many fans, weird colour combos, tons of gizmo's and odd angles and shapes etc - I can write a long list here, and let's not forget about the people who throw something together in a few days, hardly reflecting over what they do. On the other hand, we have the free will to express ourselves.

- Me, I like what I call quiet design. Quiet design is recognisable as planed harmony, not over designed, even contemporary and classic, subtle solutions and "hidden" innovations. One can clearly see when a designer was passionate and took his / her time with what they were creating. I might not bring forth anything revolutionary in this build, but I sure as hell will spend time with it making it as thorough as I can. I am educated in the art of metal shaping, cnc milling / lathing, so I know one or two things. But I cannot afford designing this on a computer and sending the files to a company, or ells I would. Nope, I am a student with limited funds and so must do it as cheap as possible.

- I wouldn't call this build cheap in any way or form. The tools alone equal that of a new computer for most people, but in terms of building a designed OC & WC performance computer, I guess in a sense it will be cheap. The tools equal the most expensive motherboards. Some will say I am stupid and insane for putting down money on the aesthetic and look of a case that ad nothing in reality to the performance, but so be it. I did not ask for permission and don't need it either thumb.gif

- As the final words in this reply. This is my first case mod and also my first performance computer. The very first computer that I bought was a Shuttle barebone in 2004, followed by the one i have now which is:

  • Bought in 2008
  • Pentium Dual-Core E5200 2,5GHz
  • 8 GB 1333MHz RAM
  • Nvidia GeForce GT 520
  • Gigabyte G41M ES2L Motherboard

I bought a HP Compac 6910p for school work etc and also a Toshiba T5200/100 386 laptop because I an nostalgic and got a good offer on it.

That is actually all of my hardware experience rolleyes.gif

Matrix Orbital update and copper pipes.

- As I mentioned yesterday, I contacted Matrix Orbital regarding information displays and also mentioned the Murderbox so that there were some references for our communication. Well, MO replayed to my letter today and here is it for your pleasure.

Technical Support: Matrix Orbital PLEDs

Hello.

I am contacting you to sort out an issue I have regarding PLED displays. I am building a computer and want to use 3-4 displays with static information similar to what is seen in this picture; [URL=http://http;//www.murderbox.com/uploads/32.murderbox.008.jpg]http;//www.murderbox.com/uploads/32.murderbox.008.jpg[/URL]
Now, according to what I know, the model use there are like the MX610, but, the one who built the Murderbox computer states that the one he used us no longer available. See image and quote; [URL=http://http;//murderbox.com/uploads/DS.mM.001.jpg]http;//murderbox.com/uploads/DS.mM.001.jpg[/URL]

Polymeric Light Emitting Diode (PLED) displays employ an advanced new electro-luminescence technology to produce one of the brightest displays commercially available. This new display technique virtually eliminates the concern about ghosting at high refresh rates and it allows you to be able to read the display from 160 degrees. The PLED display accomplishes all of this while lowering your power consumption as it does not require a backlight. Our PLED displays also offer extra features with standard and advanced General Purpose Outputs (GPO) as well as the ease-of-use with serial communication via RS-232, I2C and USB protocols."

1. Is the BLC2021-AL-USB-IY similar ?

2. Can it be programmed to show a static text and activated upon power activation of the computer - in other words, no need to start a software or auto start on software.

3. Will I be able to use internal power cable only after desired text is programmed ?

Thank you very much for taking your time to answer my questions. I will return shortly to place my order.

Regards
Patrik

Hi Patrik,

I understand you are looking to acquire a display similar to the MX610. To answer your questions:

1. The BLC2021-AL-USB-IY series is similar to the MX610. That is a package, the display within the package is the replacement (LK202-25-USB-IY). Although it being a LCD screen giving you less of a viewing angle and it does not give you the low power consumption because it has a backlight.

2. Yes, you can program your display to show static text on start up. You will have to first program it to what you would like by issuing the command "Change the Start up Screen".

3. Yes the display can be powered with an internal power cable. The new displays do not use the same USB-B header as the old MX610 used. The newer displays use a Mini-B header.

For more information on the display used in the BLC2021-AL-USB-IY, such as suitable cables, here is a link: http://www.matrixorbital.com/p181/LK202-25-USB-IY/product_info.html

Also I see you are interested in the PLED technology. If this is a must or something you would rather we can sure look into a custom display to fit your needs. In ordering a custom display thought, there may be a minimum order quantity and it may cost more than the standard model.
If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to ask.

Thank you,
Martino

I am happy with that answer. too bad that the PLED technology is no longer available, but I will do with what I can get my hands on. There are other types of display technology's available, but this display will work just fine.

Here is the info on the PLED discontinuation; http://www.matrixorbital.ca/Members/Julian/pled

- Now to another topic. I think I will go for (metric) 12 mm OD x 10 mm ID as the size for the copper pipes / tubes. It seams as this is quite common size and chrome plate the pipes when they are done.

I have now created a Flikr account and will use that for most of my photos so that you as a subscriber can access high resolution images.
