The Bender Project [No 56K] - Page 2

Alright, a bit larger of an update this time. I finished most of the dremeling and all of the table saw cutting. I still need to tap the mobo standoff holes, cut one cable management hole, and then cut the components mounting/airflow holes.

So, after dremeling:


table cuts saw:


Getting ready to do some bending. You can see my $20 heat gun back there.


0/1 on the bends. Applied to much pressure on the first bend and snapped it off. It seems the red acrylic is much less flexible than the clear I practiced on.


I got the hang of it





And here is where I'm at. Some bends are slightly crooked, so they will need to be touched up on. Definietly need to do some sanding now.






and finally a shot with the bard in place where it will end up:

So, I have decided to order a second radiator, and water cool both cpus. This means I am going to have to use a little bit cement to add another bending piece of acrylic; however, it will also make the motherboard a lot lighter without two nh-d14s on it.

Also, I purchased the wrong size tap, although the numbers are correct... (6-32 screw and 6-32 tap, any one know why that didn't work?) So, I probably won't be making much more progress until next weekend.

The fix for the power supply will need some glue as well, but I think it will still look good.

So, just for reference, here is what it should look like once all the parts are mounted. The second radiator will just be mirrored across onto the other side.


You can see that I'm going to have to use some glue, but it should still look like a bend from further away.


This is where the evga classified panel will go. If that doesn't come back in stock, I'll just mount a fan controller there.
