[Build Log] SX-636, 70's retro case! - Page 2

post #11 of 23
Thread Starter 
So the first parts arrived yesterday and i could start planing the build! first up is the GPU and how im going to mount it, after a quick teardown i now know. Going to go for a custom made GPU bracket.

The smell of a new GPU



The mount came of easy, one philips screw under the card and the DVI screws



Going to hit the workshop on tuesday and make a new one that is easier to mount and more esthetically pleasing

Thats cool is that mount like a back plate. The ones Ive seen were screwed on to the heat plate. Glad it came off easy.

So Everything is here (almost, i might need 2 more fans). Tomorrow or the day after i will start the building process

Everything (sorry about the focus)

-First up is creating a new backplate, with cut out for mobo, gpu and psu and the 50mm fans I will also need to paint the I/O shield (i have read som horror storys of people trying to create their own shields so i wont go in to that this build)
-Second is to create a new mounting plate for the GPU and paint it

-Third it's is on to mount the components to the botomplate and cut out air intakes on the bottom.

-Then i will have to create 2 fan controls, one for the intakes in the front and one for the H75 fans.
- alter the current power button to a momentary button.
- attach LED for the back lighting of the front panel
- Add two temperature meters, one for the GPU and one for the CPU that you can read from the analog indicators on the front!


OLD LAYOUT

Original Layout of the case.....minus the mobo(i fits i just didnt wanna mess with at this point) The GPU( going to be vertical in the middle with a riser card) and the SSD/HDD, (They are going under the GPU)

NEW LAYOUT

I think im going to go with this one! going to look better, and be a more quiet set up.

What a hoss of a build! I'm excited to see how you integrate temps into the analog meters in the front, I imagine that could be a little bit of a nightmare getting the voltages right.

I don't see much change between the two layouts other than changing a fan and adding one up front. Am I missing something?

P.S. Nice liquor cabinet cheers.gif

I Was planning puttning in a potentiometer to The analog indikators so I can set The resistans on The fly to calibrate.

O fk those pictures got mixed up. Old is The new one and new is The old one. Ive skipped The water cooler for The Gpu for now with The option to put it in later. Also a new Gpu... I Will begin cutting this weekend... I Hope!!

Ahhhh, Poor old Pioneer. frown.gif

Myself I would have tried to see if I could have fixed it first. tongue.gif

Still, it's an interesting build but being into stereo gear makes me sad.

At least it wasn't one of the more sought after models!

I'm using the SS450 gold, and I wouldn't recommend it for a 770. There just isn't enough current on the 12V. I tried on my build, but the card just couldn't get enough juice.

My thoughts exactly. I used to have a very similar pioneer. My audio heart hurt a bit, but pull it off and it can be a testament to making the old new!

I am surprised. People are running 290Xs and Titans on that PSU. Chiphell reviewers tested it to provide 44 amperes sustained long before shutting down. How many amperes did you measure, and where from? Did you have any sort of overclock on CPU or GPU? Maybe you should RMA it if it's not able to perform at spec.

I believe you have an isolated case. I'm currently running an nvidia GTX 780Ti with the Silverstone 450 SFX and even ran an overclock with my 780Ti with an i7 4770k at stock speeds with no issues at all...

This ^ Many of us run this PSU with R9 290x's, 780's Ti's, Titans, 7970's. I feel something else is up. thumb.gif

Well damn. I guess disregard what I said about the Silverstone PSU @saarwii; I must have the runt in the family! (Which is not unlike my luck...) All I know is I swapped the Silverstone with my Seasonic Platinum 1000 to test, and everything worked perfectly; so it's probably my PSU.
