I picked up another PC Power & Cooling 600 Watt Modular PSU. This is the ssame model I used in my kids' Purple HAF and Project: Industrial Revolution.

Why?

It's 600 Watts, Modular, a reliable brand and has 42 Amps on the 12 Volt rail for beefy video cards



Unfortunately, I could only find 3 screws long enough to go through the mannequin and into the PSU

I decided to add at least one intake fan to the mannequin



This is the mesh panel from an Antec 300



That I just needed to cut to fit the fan



Like so. Except, I'm just not at all happy with the fan as it is. I'm going to look into a more red fan with a higher CFM

I went with a 120mm Enermax Vegas fan instead, which looks far better than the first one I used

I finally got around to giving him an elbow







In order to give him a useable hand or at least one that will be able to hold his weapon, I'll have to cut his actual hand off



His new hand will consist of a bottom rubber layer



And a normal glove



First I filled the glove and fingers with expanding foam



And what's left of his hand



Then put it all together



To finish, I just had to wrap his fingers around the rifle handle. In a few hours, it will dry that way. Later, I will slide his whole arm up his sleeve to make the shoulder connection

I hadn't needed a heat gun until now. I set plexi on top of the stomach I cut out in the beginning and melted it to match





And slid it into place



It's still not perfect though



Soon I'll cut the costume to fit around the window, PSU and fans

I painted the inside all black



And I got another ugly cheap case



Because I need this



I just had to make another cut so it would fit



Then it just needed to be painted black too

Here's my processor



And motherboard



New Heatsink too



A Better 120mm fan





Time to put it in





First I mount the SSD behind the motherboard





I really wanted to use my spare GTX 560 Ti, but I can't get it to work right, so I'll be using this GTX 460 instead



Once the parts are in I discover that my rear panel gets in the way of the video card, not letting it stay seated in the board



I still have to cut the glass to make it fit right



It all seems to be working now







I just have to figure out how to keep it all seated once it's done

I tested my GTX 560 Ti in a test system and it works fine. I wonder if it's the 600 Watt PSU, which should be more than enough, in my mannequin or maybe the card doesn't like Asrock boards?



I cut the side a little more so that the mannequins skin is pushing the card down into place. It seems a bit more sturdy this way. I also added a 60mm intake fan here too. It moves a lot more air than you'd think, but it's louder than I'd prefer.

I figure that once it's all complete and standing at Micro Center with all the music and customers, you really won't hear it anyway



I think that's about it. I just need a cathode inside and that's it. Time to finish the costume

I'm using addhesive velcro to hold the clothing to the body





And then started cutting away the excess fabric around the fans and components











He's too heavy now and no longer say standing using his base. I have a chair at his knees keeping him upright at the moment. I'll either have to add more below his base pushing him back or strap him to something that's already upright, like a pillar...

I put his duty belt back on





And then I sewed his arm in an upright position, but there's a problem. The rifle I painted is just one more heavy thing making him fall over. I figured since he was already wearing a pistol holster maybe he should have a pistol too



But it needs some paint







Now to install Windows



And Fallout New Vegas

So, getting him to stand on his own has been real frustrating. I tried using the stand it came with and that didn't help at all. I then weighed it down and still nothing. I then replaced it with a weight, but then it just fell and dragged the weight behind it. I realized that no matter what I try he will not stand on his own and I needed to take away his ability all together and rely on something else.

I bought this heavy weight (Over 40lbs) umbrella stand.





And these steel poles that go together





I then needed to permanently bolt one to his body



I drilled the hole and reached up inside him where I added the washer and nut



I then combined both poles with a bolt and nut



Now he actually floats about 5 cm from the base and seems stable. Now we wait to see if he ever falls over
