Classy Machine - Still Sexy - Page 84

post #831 of 1629
Thread Starter 
alright, here is a bit of work on a side project:

I just moved back into my apartment after being in temp. summer housing while it was being renovated and as much as I love my apartment, white walls are REALLY boring.

but unfortunately we are not allowed to paint the university's walls...

so, I am forced to find another solution!

what this? WOOD!!!



wood is never the right length though, so I bust out my super high tech and extra safe cutting table:



got some short wood:



and some long wood:



and some scrap wood that no one wants:



and after getting hammered:



up close:



That is one of three panels, two 25" wide and two 38" wide.

I will be covering the two wide panels and one of the small panels with a solid green fabric and the remaining panel will get one of these black and white patterns:









Haven't decided which one yet though, feel free to make suggestions.

Classy Machine Update:

I got the third GPU block from vermillion!











I will be sleeving the power cable for the third GPU and playing around with my dremel a bit this weekend. I also plan to install one of the blocks on one of the cards to see how they will look in when they are in the case. the more i think about it the more i think they will look alright without painting them or anything similar.

expect more pics sometime between now and next tuesday.

each block is not1, not 2, but OVER 3 POUNDS connected with the bridge the three together are about 10 pounds!

I am thinking that the cards will be ok though, that SLI bridge add a ton of extra strength and rigidity.

yea, they are. i think it is impressive how complicated they are, these blocks are made of 4 separate blocks of copper each!
