[SPONSORED] Build Log | The Pocher Lambo

post #1 of 39
Thread Starter 


Hello OCN. Today I will start the build log of my upcoming build, "The Pocher Lambo".
This build will not be built inside a standard Case. Intstead it will be built inside a model kit car, from the company Pocher, that makes model kit cars in scale 1:8
The kit car is a model of the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4.

The idea is too make a discreet, yet decently powerful computer, that can sit inside your livingroom, looking more like decoration then a computer.

Main components

Motherboard:
MSI Z97I GAMING AC, Socket-1150
CPU:
Intel Core i5-4690K
GPU:
ZOTAC GeForce GTX 970 4GB
RAM:
Corsair Vengeance Pro DDR3 1866MHz 16GB (2x8 GB)

The main components might be changed. Also, it's undecided what PSU to use.

Plans & to-do's

- Finish building the model
- Create a plate to mount motherboard on, inside the car
- Mod a pci-E riser to look aesthetically pleasing
- Make a mounting for GPU
- Install LED-diodes in front and tail lights that lit once starting the computer.
- Sleeve cables in matching colors
- And more will come

Starting pictures:

The large box


A small fraction of all the parts


A lot of the pieces are made out of metal and screwed instead of glued


More of the parts, mostly plastic


You need to see it IRL before you realize how big this thing is


I hope you will enjoy this project just as much as me.

Small update

Pci-E riser ordered
Motherboard stand-offs ordered
Acrylic plate to mount the motherboard on is ordered
Paint for some of the car parts ordered

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

And some pictures.

Added white highlights to the interior


A closer look


The dashboard and steering wheel


The amount of details in this kit is stunning


Hard too see, but inside coming along


Photos taken late at night, so the quality is not the best


Most of inside done.


The back of the car, where the engine should go. Probably where I mount the graphics card


This is cool, fully functional suspension


Info on the Aventador


Engine parts painted in a more glossy silver, then the standard grey


The silver is very fitting


Protection is important kids


This is where the engine should go. But instead, I'm planning to put my graphical engine there


_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

As you see, I have not assembled the seating or actual engine, as I know these are in the way for the coming components.

The motherboard will be mounted on an acrylic plate in the "cockpit" of the car. The I/O-panel will face towards one of the doors, so you can reach the USB by opening the door.
In the back I plan to put the GPU which will be a tight fit, but I do believe it's possible. Some of the GPU might go all the way into the cockpit.

The PSU is the big problem. With extreme luck it might fit in the front compartment. But that's doubtful. If I cannout put it there, I will make a wooden "pedestal", which the car will be placed on. Inside the pedistal I will put the power supply. I will try to make the pedestal elegant and discreet. No ridiculous carbon fibre wraps or similar.

Motherboard is ordered.
Free shipping so no reason ordering everything in one package.

An MSI MSI Z97I GAMING AC, Socket-1150.

The reasons are simple.
The 24-pin is connected on top if the motherboard instead of on the side like most mini-ITX boards.
Also, it fits the orange paint job more then most other boards.

So a small update.

Because the glue takes time to dry, it takes a bit of time assembling the car.
But today I got the Diodes!

Red, white and orange. Red and white will be used.
Cheap of Ebay. seems to work. Hopefully I can attach them nicely to the front and back of the car.

Also expecting motherboard, stand-offs and an acrylic plate next week.

Small update:

Motherboard has arrived, and just fits inside the car. In worst case scenario, I will have to remove the front panel of the car, but hopefully not.

Some pics because why not?

A small update.

The car is going along, it goes slowly, and I apoligize. The wheel suspension and so on was a real challenge.
I am just starting to make the board that will hold the motherboard, out of a 3mm acrylic sheet.

The front seems to be perfect for an SSD to be mounted, and the back will most likely hold the graphics cars.
I believe I heard that the GTX 970 will come in an mini-ITX size, and that would be perfect size for me.

Some pictures for your enjoyment:

This little thing is a life saver when building a kit like this. I'm a quite strong guy, but some of these screws are to hard to tighten by hand. That's were my little friend Bosch comes in. A screwdriver of this sort is recommended if building in a kit like this.




Fully woking turning wheels. Fully working suspension. I'm very impressed with this model kit.





Planning for an SSD to be mounted here.





The size is almost perfect for an SSD



And the rear part with exhaust pipes.





If they make a graphic card that small in the GTX 900 series, which I've heard, it will fit perfectly!







And lastly, the sheet for the motherboard to be mounted on. meassured . (Fun fact, that ruler on the side, is from my time in elementary school, it's about 14 years old)

I might have to remove the steering wheel and dashboard, but no cutting needed yet.

But things might change. We'll see.

Looking good. Getting my wheels turning for a build too. Never thought of using something like this before.
