What is Revitalize?

Revitalize is the act of breathing in new life to my own personal build. It's been some time since i completed X7900D and its age is starting to show. Not so much in performance but more in the looks department. I've learned a lot since then on different modding techniques and now i finally have the opportunity to give it a face lift and bring it back into today's modding standards!

The theme should come as no surprise to anyone who knows me and my palate, Primer Grey and Dark Grey/ Black accents. Ever since i made a rendering for a tj07 in primer grey and purple i fell in love with the primer aspect of it.

Fortunately i already have most the parts for this build so its just modding and building, with some custom designed and made components.


Parts:
  • Intel 5960X *Purchased*
  • Asus Rampage 5 Extreme *Purchased*
  • Corsair Ax1500i
  • 2 x Nvidia Titan X *Purchased*
  • 2x OCZ vertex 4 256gb ssd Raid 0 *Purchased*
  • Samsung 840 Evo 500gb ssd *Purchased*
  • 32gb G.skill Ripjaws 2666mhz DDR4 Ram *Purchased*
  • Corsair 900d *Purchased*

Water Cooling:

  • 2 x D5 pump *Purchased*
  • Ek Supremacy Cpu block *Purchased*
  • 2 x Titan X Block *Purchased*
  • 14 x Corsair Sp120 HP fans *Purchased*
  • 2 x BP150 ML Tube Res *Purchased*
  • Rocket Science Fittings *Purchased*
  • Aquaero 5 LT *Purchased*
Mods to Do
  • Make new rear insert for 900d get laser cut
  • Make new motherboard tray and mount
  • Disassemble and Paint 900d
  • Make SSD Holder
  • Make 100% Custom Cables / Sleeve
  • Make new LED Mid Plate
  • Paint MotherBoard
  • Paint Ram
  • Make new Corsair 900d Front Panel

Lots to do and not a whole lot of time to do it, i'm confident i can get it done though. So come, kick back and hang out with me while REVITALIZE my personal rig!

Update # 1 Some Parts !

First up for photo shooting is the amazing I7 5960 X, this whole build would not have happened if i didnt get a killer deal on it and jump start the process!

Next for this update is the Asus Rampage 5 Extreme. I had my first rampage with x79 and loved it, although i've never cared for the color pattern. That can easily be fixed tho

thanks everyone! i'm super excited to dig back into this beast. tearing it apart its crazy to see how things 2 years ago were acceptable and now i would be soo upset if i did poor work like that again

i'm going to the hardware store and picking up sheet metal and rivets. going to pop out all rivets, paint, and make my back plate this weekend for sure!

update #2 : 900disassembled

Crunch time is now! so i started digging into the actual case.

The Bezels come off nicely, only a series of screws hold it on, so thats nice.. They are identical too so that makes for switching them around easy.

once i had the rear plate taken out, i drilled the rivets for i/o out

http://s1119.photobucket.com/user/U...edia/Revitalize/IMG_4540_zpszg5ulmnj.jpg.html

simple enough

Now we have the motherboard try to take off

http://s1119.photobucket.com/user/U...edia/Revitalize/IMG_4542_zpsq3zfaw4q.jpg.html

pop them suckers out and poof, its loose. you can see my cable routing cut outs from before.

http://s1119.photobucket.com/user/U...edia/Revitalize/IMG_4544_zpsyyq8ewmh.jpg.html

next up is the cd cage

http://s1119.photobucket.com/user/U...edia/Revitalize/IMG_4545_zpsenqtt5uv.jpg.html

removed

http://s1119.photobucket.com/user/U...edia/Revitalize/IMG_4546_zpskvje42d0.jpg.html

carnage!

http://s1119.photobucket.com/user/U...edia/Revitalize/IMG_4541_zpsrbovhnzr.jpg.html

ofc this would happen on the last rivet!

http://s1119.photobucket.com/user/U...edia/Revitalize/IMG_4549_zpszjh4m8au.jpg.html

now shes all empty

http://s1119.photobucket.com/user/U...edia/Revitalize/IMG_4547_zps9zqmoofy.jpg.html

Now i cut PVC pipes to make a DIY paint booth, since its avg 30F here in PA. no paiting in the garage....The last time i painted indoors was for perfectly pink, which turned out great, but not so much for my carpet
doh.gif
and the inevitable rear end chewing from the wife
biggrin.gif


so this time i wanted to actually make a booth to collect the excess spray dust and provide a nice way to hang items and make it easier to shoot.

http://s1119.photobucket.com/user/U...edia/Revitalize/IMG_4550_zps6tzjq9em.jpg.html

the booth will be 2' wide by 4' tall. made with 3/4inch pvc . i think it cost like 15-20 bucks for it all

http://s1119.photobucket.com/user/U...667317384058_934635303_n_zpsnks1tbbr.jpg.html

i didnt get a shot of it with the mylar around it but its there lol

Next update will have photos of the Aquaero and pipe bender. hopefully i'll get to shoot some paint soon too!

ordering the PSU this week!

Next up is the Aquaero 5 LT

I chose to go with the LT version because i didnt need the LCD or buttons as this will be hidden in the bottom compartment *hopefully*
