This week-end it was varnishing time:


Here is the render of the first coat:


It was not really dry when I took the picture that's why it shines.
Next week-end I will apply second coat.

Second activity of the week-end was to sandpaper and brush the aluminium sheet that I will use for the covers:


I used an orbital sander first, then hand-sandpapering with 120, 240 and 400 papers.
The goal was to eliminate this ugly scar:


After some pass:




I will show more of it when the covers will be ready

Last thing that I did this week end was to properly insulate the PCIe riser.
I tried to use an antistatic bag for the insulation: (thanks G-force for the idea)


It partially worked. I was able to boot and launch a Furmark stress test but the system went down at half of the benchmark.
So mixed the solutions, using both aluminium foil and antistatic bag with double side adhesive tape.

I started by placing the double side adhesive tape on the riser: (luckily it's exactly the perfect size! )


Then I glued the aluminium foil:


And finally the antistatic bag:


The riser is ready for further benchmarks.

That's all for the week

Hello,

as usual, here is the summary of the week-end's work.

I finally finished all the cables. Here is a how-to in four steps:

1-Stripping:


2-Crimping:


3-Plug-in:


4-Result: two 6-pins custom GPU cables!


This kind of cable is very quick to make: it took me only 30 minutes to do these two.

Family portrait of all the cables:


From left to right: 24pins mobo, 4pins CPU, 6pins GPU, Mini-Sata for DVD, Sata for HDD and Sata for SSD.


I also modded the motherboard slightly by removing the stickers and adding mine:

Before and after:


With the heatsink and SSD mounted:




See you soon for updates

hello all,

I apologize for the two weeks without updates but I was more busy finishing the mod than posting photos...

The mod is now FINISHED and I count on you to go on the CoolerMaster facebook page and support my mod .

As a conclusion to this topic, here are the pictures of the final assembly and the final pictures of the mod. Enjoy it














































































I hope you had as pleasure to follow this mod as I had to make it.

Thanks to CoolerMaster for organizing this competition which motivate me to do this mod

Sweeet! I like it. It looks like an old refrigerator with the heatsink on top like that. The fit work is just fantastic. -and really tight in places.
