Debezeling the QNIX and adding custom and thin cover.

Its also noise isolation for the screen... oh yes, you read it correctly - I did reduce noise of the screen as well. biggrin.gif

I too would love a tutorial on that qnix mod, if you feel so generous!

My X-Star needs some love. When I moved recently, the panel slipped down a bit inside the frame, and now the bottom 2 rows of pixels are cut off, and it also now has a bit of backlight bleed on the bottom that it never had before. frown.gif

I also want to get a mount for it at some point, so I figure as long as I have to open it at that point, it might as well make any modifications needed/wanted as well.

Hello guys, what kind of tutorial do you want? I mean diss assembly is easy to find on the internetz (i think its even here on ocn). Then there is the new monitor cover. Thats made out of 3mm aluminum, making it quite hefty , but very rigid. If you want to know how that was made I can provide written description (i don't have photos of the build process).

If you throw enough money at the screen I might make you one extra QNIX cover biggrin.gif

@uberniner, would it be alright if I tried to adapt your design for a desk as well? I'm thinking that it could be pretty cool for a teensy-tiny mITX system, especially with the lift system that you have going. n.n

We'll see if it ever comes to fruition as well.

Sure, you can use, modify and improve my designs as you wish. All I can ask for is only credit, if you start a worklog or publish it somewhere. Good luck

A big day! The interconnect plate is now in place in the case as well as the custom reservoir.

Oh my goodness! It's looking absolutely gorgeous so far!

May I ask how you painted the aluminum? It looks really quite pretty ^^;

its just primer nitro (S2003) and two layers of acrylic water based color. Both of these are super cheap, cost about 5USD/1Kg, but the surface isnt as hard as i would imagine, so i dont suggest you to use it.
