TJ11 MOD 1.0





http://foro.noticias3d.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=365159

After a long period of quiet and calm, I return with the empty glass.
I want fill the glass with many wanting to improve the computer, looking forward to re-learn things (many) and especially eager to enjoy the WC again.
So I am strong enough to do the 2.0 version of the TJ11.
This project, unlike the previous one, we'll take it more calmly enjoying every moment without rushing.
SKETCHES MOD 2.0
Well now I know more or less how I want to do ........
Lower part, SR-1 480 & SR-1 360 (adjusting it ahead so that there is room between the cables and Psu)



As noted above, the SR-1 240 anchored at the bay and deposit in it (using a grid that can put the clamps of deposit) and SR-1 120 through the back exit.

Came the first of the packages!
Why AguaGraFX ? A thorn that tapeworm slope with the temperatures. Aesthetically the Bitspower Black Freezer are great but with a pitiful performance. So for the MOD 2.0, will go for the best of the best!












Good finishes of Nickel and the mirror effect!

AQUACOMPUTER RADIATOR BRACKETS 5.25[


The desire that I have to start but we will get to work when I have all the material, as before, in this version, do more cuts in the TJ11 (making broader which I already have too)
With zipping around to enjoy the show, which is what matters. This project will be more personalized!
I've been looking inside the block and taking measures








1 year ago that did not open my mini box of tools for PC! xD

I just checked the covers, fit perfectly with the holes in the block. Excellent result.
He now wears matching screws, but not if I put the original gives Industrial and elegant touch.










I was checking leaks in one of blocks and everything is correct.
Here is the first GTX 580 with backplate block and placed.
The installation of the block along with the backplate was easier, I spent a good time, like a kid with a new toy. xD

No big deal, but for lack of time (work) I could make a hole.

I still customizing Aquacomputer, this time with the main logo MOD.
I tried to make transparent stickers, using the matte black background of acrylic covers, but were not very good and they looked too fingerprints on it.
So .......... stickers with glossy finish:

My first contact, the truth better, besides I already got heat shrink ( about the diameter I wanted )









And this is already more serious with a little more experience:











The famous double single wires with 2 ends of most current psu's





But we suffered a percanse on a second cable, the 6 +2 PCI-EX, I left it a pin.
No choice but have to buy 18 AWG wires and pins ( so we give more utility to the Crimping Tool ).






Slowly, but moving! xD
We continue with the theme, today it was one of my Scythe Slip Stream Slim.






We cut and we sandpapered the edges one of the plastic grips.



Change the connector pin.





And voilà!

MORE STUFFS!
biggrin.gif




As there were no kits of DDR3 1600Mhz Dominator GT 6gb to join those already I have, without choice,
I had to catch those of 12Gb. Months I've been noticing that I'm short of ram, especially with ADOBE PHOTOSHOP CS5 (64bit) and some games with mods like Skyrim. Regarding Mayhems be will be for aesthetic any more, since the one I have is too big and who knows if 99'99% pure silver, we will replace it.










Now I get the substitute for AX1200:





It's smaller than the AX1200, is appreciated when I place together with the Black Ice SR1 360, it will be easier to wire.
It shows the quality of construction is very robust.
What I like is the function of the fan after shutdown, which will run for a while to cool internal components, extending the life of them.








The texture of the paint, it's like the TJ11, but also, the connectors will match the color of the Paracords, Red & Black! Just perfect!

Well we have 3 wire 6 +2 PCI-EX.







Here, along with my elephant luck! xD



My notes.





Well, all that remain to finish the simplest but not least ( pumps, fans pending sata molex ......... etc )





Some bifurcations.



PCI-EX 6+2 ( x3 ) // 12 ATX ( x2 ) // 24 ATX.

Will the 360 + 480 rad fit in the bottom? Since I thought 240 +480 was max. I'm loving the stuff you got so far though, I hope that elephant gives you lots of luck on this build
smile.gif
Thanks for commenting! I had a 240 and a 480 under both SR1. Having a smaller psu than the AX1200, I estimate that the 360 will come without problems.
The 240 I will put in the bay with the deposit 5.25.

Yeah thats true, I tend to forget how big the AX1200 is. Love the sketchup designs btw, forgot to put that in last post

Also those waterblocks look really clean, I really love how they look!

Thanks!

I wanted to give them a personal touch ( 580's blocks ).
As Is, are great, but for the theme of the Mod, are rather poor.

Some more Sleeving Stuffs!
biggrin.gif










Theme SATA stock connectors, I do not like it, plus it is the type of connector that is difficult to sleeving.
Taking lots of HotSwap (TJ11) for now I do not plan to use them, so I made my own custom cables from zero with a typical long connectors.
I used AWG18 wires and I will take the 5-pin connector cable stock for supply.






Some extensions of 60cm for Nidec GT



Thieves 3 pin (with 2 connectors), the same ( extensions ) , the white connectors will be covered with heat-shrinkable.
I guess there will be no problem for the Lamptron Touch (30w per channel)





Set of cables!

I spent an hour sanding and prepared for a painting session. There are a couple of (L) that I left over a piece of furniture from Ikea, I think I will be good as plan B,
if I'm not convinced with the Aquacomputer Bracket Radiator.






Leak Checking remaining 2 blocks, cleaning and leaving it ready for installation. I was also testing the SLI connector parallel.

Good to see the 580's, they're still great cards, and deserve those lovely blocks!
Nice to see the wiring and sleeving techniques, and other fine details you've included in this build.
Excellent photos. Rep+

Thank you very much, both of you guys, for the encouragement.
The truth is that I do it for personal satisfaction more than anything else. I want to correct defects in the Mod 1.0 and improve things either temperature or aesthetics

Here the painting session.

Yesterday afternoon was the first batch of cleaning! Here some fittings, even lack for taking those who are in the radiators.
I cleaned them inside with milkweeds, with a side of hot distilled water with vinegar for cleaning and then immersed in distilled water.
Then dry them carefully and go
.





I've removed some of the hardwares inside of the TJ11, but still, it remains completely dismantle, to take out the SR-1 480 and SR-1 240.



After a year and seven months without cleaning the blocks! Aquacomputer block does not bother me at all, the Ekwb, however yes, the issue of quality





After seeing this, I stake will not use any dye at the moment. Silver and only distilled water nothing else.







Blocks Clean!





What I feared, as I cleaned, broke off pieces of Nickel. Above is the "" NICKEL IN "" assuming good lot.





We will see what will the block R3E, if it goes like this, we will make some changes in quality of materials.
From now on, no more Ekwb.

As I said, a late ass, between cleaning and assembly of the blocks and then leave home quickie:





Finally I have my triplets!
In person hits more visual appearance between blocks nickel, black pcb of the 580's and that touch of black & red covers! The colors are more intense.










Twin Connector and the ideal companion, matte black fittings.
