Alright, no updates in the shell, as I'm still trying to figure out the best way to build the panels in a sturdy yet lightweight manner, but I've got some new parts, and some changes
1) Ditched the VGA LVDS converter in favor of a HDMI LVDS converter, because otherwise I cannot overclock the board (!). Plus, HDMI cables are thinner than VGAs, and provide better signal (I could see some rubberbanding on the VGA). Bad news is it'll take at least another week to get here. But I can still work with the VGA one until it reaches here
Also, the stupid VGA one had a max res of 1440x900px (***!), and the new one is capable of fully utilising the 1080p.
2) I've decided to thicken the whole build 5mm, although will work on lowering this. Why? Because the radiator will blow air to the back of the screen, this way I can bolt it directly to the shell, put the fan on top, and the fan can suck air from strategically placed vents to cool the motherboard and the picoPSU.
3) I will cut a big AMD logo on the back of the case, and place some frosted acrylic on top, as well as adding some green light to it. The world needs to know what Trinity is capable of!
Now to the parts that are here!
The PicoPSU, an excellently crafted beauty made in the USA by Cyncronix; with a corresponding jack to power it:
The DC power brick, generic VAIO 19.5V 6.15A one, bought it overrated by full 30W so it is still able to power the system in power peaks:"Can accept exoteric interferences including the ones that may cause undesired operation"
Okay, whatever that means...
Hopefully between tomorrow and next monday I'll receive the HDMI cable, the 24pin extension, and the keyobard/mouse set, as well as the Wi-Fi dongle
Stay tuned! Tonight I'll start designing the screen cushion system
