Here's today's update, so we've got the filing done:

wooo

Fits much better for allowing airflow:



I fitted the Mobo to the tray to measure where I need the Pci bracket:


I'm glad it fits

Also I fitted the res to check it for positioning:



Still got to paint the whole thing

Thanks for reading

Just thought I'd do a wee update.
I've decided I will put another drain in, To make it a bit easier.

I've Bought some Paint.......... We'll see how bad I am at this

The design might get done this week..... depends as I've still in the middle of building my partners Xmas present.

Also I'm considering buying some of the panels now, and the rest later.
Mainly the MoBo tray and the base.
These will go in and the PC will be assembled on My desk (FINALLY) and the rest will be added bit by bit as I gather monies. I'll start with 2 x 240mm rads, that'll handle the GPU and CPU with no OC.

That will involve Polishing the GPU block.... Would people like a step-by-step?
would you like a time lapse?
it all depends on how many times I can be arsed emptying the loop, I might wait, I might put the cpu loop together without GPU.

We'll see

Thanks for reading

HAPPY NEW YEAR ALL!!!


I'm back (not that anyone pays enough attention to miss me )

AND I've brought some updates

So, frame DONE! painting is commencing this weekend.... Will do a few progress pics during, just for funsies.

I'm sending off to get some of the panels ASAP, getting the mobo back tray, the base, and the back panel.

I'm still doing the design for the front etc. I'm liking the smaller hexagon style.

BIG UPDATEY THING BIT!

I sanded and polished the GPU block , here is a wee step by step as I did it.

Here we begin,
Note the piece of glass to sand against to make sure it's level.



Take it all apart

Sand with 400:

Sand with 800:



Sand with 1000



Sand with 2000 (I had no 1500 )



Sand with 2500



Sand with 3000

Last is polish and assemble, Use all the elbow grease:


Pretty pics:




so that's this update, More to come hopefully
Thanks for reading

Sand and Hung:


Coat with primer with 15 mins between coats:



Leave for 24 hours.................
..........................
........................
.........................

Paint with black matt paint, 15 mins between coats again:


TBH for the first time using a spray can since young teenage warhammer models I'm very happy with it

Yeah, it's better than the old phone by far and it's nice to not have to drag the dslr to the workshop.

More updates this week (I hope )

Hey all,

I Planned to update this week, but not much to update really

I've sent off Emails for the panels

I'm still waiting for OCUK Stock, I've pre-bought some of the smaller pieces, but Don't want to put down too much encase I decide to buy elsewhere due to stock.

Currently To Get me up and running I Need:
8 More Acrylic Fittings;
3 More Rads;
1 Fan controller;
8 Fans (I have 4 Piranhas unopened, but Planning to replace these)

There is....No stock, on almost everything....

Maybe it's time of year..... I dunno.

This weekend I plan to polish up the case feet to a lovely shine , that'll cheer me up hahaha

Until next time,
Thanks

So I thought I'd give a wee update on what I'm doing:

I polished the feet, they need a wee buff but good to go really.

I've bought more rads, bought all OCUK's recent drop of stock (sorry) but more are on their way.

I've ordered and paid for some Acrylic panels, the base, the back, and the mobo tray.

This will get the pc up, together, and I can start plumbing

I'm really excited for the panels, I hope I can take some decent photos of the next few stages as I think they'll be EPIC

I'll be taking delivery today of 2 new rads.
This will allow me to plumb up the acrylic on the right hand (CPU) side.
And plumb the inlet to the GPU.

From there I could soft tube to the res and complete the loop for fist turn on. But Might double check lead time on some more Monsoon fittings, I'm short and no Stock

Also need to address the fan situation, I'll have to drop a ton on fans...sucks but it has to happen, Then it's controlling them.
I'll have to re-sleeve them, and put together some custom extensions, which is another set of tools I need to buy......I hate the cost, but love new tools

Fan controller's on the back burner for now, cots issues and the MoBo has enough headers to get me online.... for now.

Most exciting is the Panels, 2-3 days lead time, so hopefully a Sexy photoshoot this weekend >.<
