Quite a few pictures to share with you in my latest update, unfortunately my phone's on the blink so most of these aren't the greatest. Hopefully they'll still give a nice taste of how things are going.

 

Although I'm rebuilding most of the 901's internals, there are a few holes and cuts needed on the bits I'm keeping, and some of them can only be done once the Titan is in place. So I thought I'd best get on with it and block up my very first GPU :D

 

She has to come out of her existing home first, so allow me to introduce you to the original Asteria:

 

 

My trusty Silverstone SG05 with a minor mod to fit a 10.5 inch GPU inside a 9.5 inch case, Corsair H60 cooler and 2 SSDs hidden underneath the PSU. She's dusty and battered and the rubbish paintjob I did covering the bare steel scratches off every time you remove the lid, but she still no slouch after all these years.

 


Here's the old girl, still going strong.

 

 

 


Big deep breath, here we go eek.gif

 

The Nvidia TIM masters were rather sensible when they built Asteria, it seems. Nothing flooding everything, and still quite fluid too surprisingly.

 

Easy to clean up then :o

 

 

My very first obligatory naked board pr0n shots ;)

 

 

 

(between little space and a dodgy phone, I couldn't do anything arty with the super-shiny die, so that's just me giving the :thumb: )

 


Time to block up then!

 

I was expecting mating a Watercool GPU block to an EK backplate to be a nightmare, and my planning and cosmetic work to be all for naught. But it was bang on first time.

 

I couldn't get any decent pictures, but essentially it's just screws anyway so hardly exciting. It's a case of working out which screws were unique to the GPU block, which were unique to the backplate and which were shared between the two, and in turn what the screw lengths would be given Watercool and EK do things differently.

 

So we ended up with 7 M3x8mm dome head screws to fix the block around the GPU, which were shallow enough in head size not to interfere with the spacing on the backplate. We then had 4 M3x12mm countersunk screws to mate the backplate with the remaining 4 holes in the block. Add 2 M3x5mm at the very edge of the PCB to secure the backplate and we're all done.


And here we are!

 

 

Now that I know the mating works and is secure I'm going to polish up those backplate screws a little to try and match the brushed aluminium, but for now I think it looks magic.


Apologies again for most of the pics being shoddy, I'll be having a clean up soon so fingers-crossed I can get this DSLR working properly and get that damn backdrop free of creases :p

Of course, I couldn't leave it there :D

 

I had to see what the completed motherboard would look like:

 

 


It's exactly what's been stuck in my head for 6 months. Some little touch-ups here and there to come later (polished backplate screws, removing the green PCB on the titan, slightly redesigned I/O shroud, etc.) but right now I'm really pleased with how it's turned out. Very excited to continue :wheee:

 

And still haven't actually measured the case bits for drilling :p

 

 

There may not be an update for a while as I'm folding up and drilling case internals. Hopefully I'll be back soon :thumb:

 

Thanks for looking.

Cheers TCO, it's turned out great. That backplate is especially fine I must say.

 

Now it might be because it's a wonky prototype, but the I/O shroud has ended up a tiny bit too big. We're only talking 2mm too long but it does press into the backplate. I'm not sure it actually matters, but I'm going to double-check dimensions and tweak the drawing before I commit to laser (which is hopefully happening this week :thumb:).

Why thank you :thumbsups hopefully the actual product will be as good!

 

Bodywork is underway, got a massive checklist of things to do with it all, but hopefully I'll be trimming some pieces (since the bend radii has thrown measurements out) and de-rivetting this week and have an update in the coming week.

 

Thanks for looking!
