What's the status of this build, hasn't it been all too quiet these last couple of months ?

Surprisingly enough, it's still going on. I'm having the last part printed hopefully in the next couple weeks. AMD were just, well, really slow dealing with a couple issues, namely the last printing parts and the RAM (they bought the wrong one the first time...). Things do seem to be underway though, the RAM arrived shortly before Christmas and the print is all approved now. I was going to update the thread once I have an ETA for the part, that way we can get a proper schedule going.

Sounds good looking forward to seeing the progress thumb.gif

Thank you so much for waiting for me to join biggrin.gif It's looking extremely good already, I absolutely adored Vesper but I think Aetos is even better! Subbed!

Ha I bet some of you thought this was dead?

Nope!

In short, there was a change of hands for the project at AMD, which broke a lot of communication etc. However, there was only one crucial part that needed doing, and that's now been handled. So a big thanks to Adam Kozak at AMD for putting up with my constant nagging and helping to get this through the door.

So the final chassis pieces have now been printed! They're now in a proper state for me to begin the process of sanding, fitting and eventually painting.

Here are some shots of the new side panels:

Love the first two pictures, but that final shot looks somewhat strange. Did the case get a lot wider or is the camera angle playing games with my mind? Why did they have to be redone at all, I thought you already had a perfectly good set of side panel pieces ready.

It's a bit of both really. The case is now a little wider, but only by 20mm, which isn't a big deal, but when combined with the 24mm lens at that angle and the fact that things are splayed a little, things look rather bulbous. Thankfully, that's not the case in the assembled piece though.

UPDATE!

This has been a long time coming really, just been so busy recently thanks to life and now the Thermaltake comp. That said, I've definitely still got time and plans for Aetos.

First order of the day is getting the GPU mounted. Thankfully AMD provided a mechanical sample, which means I can use it in the workshop without worrying about things like aluminium dust getting in the card etc. I decided to keep things simple, just a couple strips of aluminium bent in the vice. I'll be painting these up to look pretty, don't worry.

Second is installing the little neodymium magnets into the case sections. These help hold the front sections together without any screws, the rear parts are then fastened securely. The sockethead screws are just placeholder (had them to hand), will be using more appropriate ones.

The case itself now fits together and is strong. What's next is to begin the beautification process, i.e sanding, priming, filling and painting. There's a lot of work to be done there, hopefully it will all go as intended.

That looks really great, lets hope there isn't any more unforeseen issues, but i like the tight packaging, but that might come back to hunt you later in the finishing steps as cables will be cables... biggrin.gif
