Ok update. Bad news and good news today.

Good news is that I have finished the floor and mobo tray and they look very nice indeed, also routed all the cables under the floor and mounted the mobo. Also took delivery of a bloody big, heavy FX5950 Ultra from Phil (Cheers mate ) This is such a nice card but I think it's a little wasted atm sitting in my shuttle with the top off cos its so big LOVELY!!!!!

Bad new is that I turn the thing on and........nothing, not a thing. LED's on the mobo say CPU isn't seated properly or damaged After re-seating the proc about six times with no effect I have to assume it's either damaged or the mobo isn't working right. I have emailed the certain company who I bought the CPU off today and await a reply soon hopefully. Just to add insult to injury my Mach2 is up the spout again, neither me or Phil can figure out why because it was fixed about 2 weeks ago

Well thats about it, I shall post pics of the case asap.

Yea sux indeed, looking into getting it sorted soon tho so should be all good and ready to go within the month. Small little hickup will never stop me achieving what I set out to do, just wish companies would pack things properly before shipping

Update 31/5/04

Ok been a while since I posted on here but just a little update on what's going on and where things are as it stands.

I recently ordered an Asus KV8SE Deluxe which should be with me later on this week as my MSI board crapped out which put me back a little but we should be ok now. I've also decided to ditch my current water cooling and get a Thermochill 120:2 rad, Danger Den Maze 4-1 Pelt GPU block, and a Maze 4 chipset block which should be fun installing in the PC65B.

As far as the cosmetics go I have broken another 3 red and 2 blue cathodes so have spent a mini fortune on those things over the past month . Also decided to get a Bulgin iluminated power switch the same as Phil sells, got mine from work for nothing tho (i love electronics jobs ).

Well all being well I should be up and running by the end of the week with the AMD64 so I'll let ya know how it all goes.

Please keep us posted mate. Looking good so far - will also be interested to see how you get on with that sized rad in a PC65.

update 7/6/04

Ok I am now running full 64 bit YEY!!!

After my first nightmare with the Mach2 it's all up and running smooth now, and the processor seems fine aswell so double bonus. I will post pics of the machine a little later on today once I have finished the final little touches to it.

As of now the major work on BLOOLI is complete

Picture update 13/6/04

Ok guys as promised a little late but still the same. Some Pics of the rig



The entire system with the lights on in my room



Other side of the case with my custom airbrushed AMD64 logo on the side



Now you can see what I was talking about having the false floor for, all cables are under that and behind the mobo tray.



Shot of the inside through the window kit with the cables kinda tidied.

Continued in next post.....

Shot of the window with the lights off in my room. Doesnt really show how bright the damn thing is lol.



Full system in the dark room, you can also see the green glow of another rig on the other side of the desk glaring on the monitor aswell



Front shot, I removed the front fan mesh because it made the machine noisier and the fans duller.



Finally theres the thing that took me nearly a week to complete. Still need to rub out the pencil marks for getting the middle of the panel but thats my biggest arty thing I've done since school

Hope you like, not finished yet, still need to stealth the drives but I can barely move at the moment as I did my back in while freestyle kayaking yesterday, very painful and annoying

More to come when I get the water cooling parts

looking good there mate

one thing though

the evap head looks to be stressed the way you have mounted the evap head.

afaik the evap head should be fitted in 2 ways.

one with the evap-capilary tube being on top of the evaporator and another one by turning the evap heads 90 degrees clockwise...

u seem to have turned it anticlockwise so the capilary tube looks stressed creating that weird shape on it...

u sure you have installed it correctly?
