Sinuskurve (sine curve)

Bit-tech
Hallo at all. Today (and the following weeks) I want tell and show you a lot of my project “Sinuskurve”. But at first I will warn you in advance that my English is very bad. Because of this I won´t write to much and show you for it a lot of pics.

I started with it last summer. The plan was to build a PC which has a supreme shape, is big enough for a lot of electronics and should be suitable in every room or flat.
And this was the first sketch

The case is build with a lot of Plexiglas and fiberglass. After a lot of time the case looked so





It´s 73cm high and sine curve is 34cm broad. The PC will be painted in a beautiful white.

So now you know the form of my project I hope and I want come to the inner life of the PC. Important for me was that not only the shape of the mod should be supreme, but also the water cooling system.
And now the two most spectacular elements of the water cooling system. On the one hand the balance tank (in german “Ausgleichsbehälter). The tank is 40cm long and has a diameter of 12cm. And the special of the tank is in my opinion the water flows at first in the little pipe which looks like a sine curve. In this little pipe are altogether 84 holes with a diameter of 0,5mm. And so the water spray out of the little pipe with a pressure (but the laing pump is strong enough..;-)).




And on the other hand the radiator for the water cooling system is in my eyes something special, because the radiator is very big and heavy, but at first I will show you some pictures of the “monster”.




It weighs 8kg, is 25cm broad, 16cm high and 32cm long. The copperpipe in it is 3m long and has an inner diameter of 0,8cm. The radiator exists of 70 aluminumtins. The surface of the radiator is 5.6 square metres. In the top of the radiator is a Plexidisk. An in the Plexidisk are LEDs for the lighting.

Lighting, that´s good headword. Important for me was also that the lighting of the PC is supreme. Well the whole PC should not glow like a Christmas tree, but only the edges and the interior. For this I solder together 1296 LEDs for each of the the six colors (blue, green, pink, red, yellow and white) 216 LEDs. The colors will be controlled by USB relaycard. Here a picture of the interior in all colors which are possible.



In the front of the PC come 5 scanner (in german “Taster”) on/off, reset, disk drive, on/off tft (10,4” which is in the top) and on/off lighting system and here some pics of the scannermodul



And at least some maybe interesting numbers around the sine curve
-planning time: 120h
-construction period: 500h
-costs with Hardware: 2000€
-probably weight: 30-40kg
-consumption of cable till now: 150m
-finish of the project: in one month (planned)


That was first from my site, and I am expectant what your opinion is about my project.

Ah! An unique design! Gotta love 'em. Well made so far as well. Is that radiator DIY as well? And how about the USB-relay card? I'm making a 8-channel triac-card for 12 V halogen lights, but can't make it into USB So if you're gonna make that youself as well then please post the schematic.. here's mine so far, made into a case of an old tape player: http://allthemods.com/userinfo.php?userid=8&id=2734

I like it. You built something that is NOT a box. The sprayer in the reservoir is a nice idea, I hope it doesn't cause foam when you put PC coolant in it.
1300 LEDs?!? And no visible wiring! Nice.

I like the shape of the case, but why didn't you use rgb leds? Would have saved you an awful lot of work I think.

"sinuskurve" external extensions are ready

Good evening,
Today I have done something form my project. Namely I bored und shape the holes for the extensions (in german: Anschlüsse). And before I tell you more about it here 3 pics of it



And now a little explanation of the sense of these extensions, the 2 gold ones are 12V output. Each is connected with the relaycard. And so I am able to control for example the Christmas lighting ore something like this. The 4 6-pol bushes (in german: Buchsen) are LED output. That means that I am able to control other things in which are the 6 different LEDs how in the PC. And the D-Sub is for the tft in the top of the PC.
I hope you understand me a little bit…;-)

Here a picture of the 4 elements which I´ll use to build the case.


And here a pic of the LEDs which light up the edges of the case.


Well and last but not least some more pictures of the radiator







@all: Thank you for your praise, I am very happy about it, and you give me the “energy” which I needed to mod every day 4 hours or more!!!

@Jipa: Yes I build the radiator by my own. The relaycard bought I, because I am a electronic noob…;-)

@-Nick-: For the LEDs…that´s a good question. I think for all things which are needed for the LEDs and to wire all the LEDs I needed maybe 100-150hours


So that was it for today, tomorrow I give a new update I hope.

And if you have questions about my project please ask me, and I will try to give you an answer. And before I verget it her a link to my project log at exclaim (german-casemod-forum) http://www.exclaim.de/forum/thread/1...se-fertig.html

Hello guys,
I am very sorry that you have to wait a long time for an update, but in the last weeks I had a lot of stress with my PC. Cause of this was that the DCMM was last Weekend and I would take part. And the work on the PC took a lot of more time than I planned… I think some of you know this “problem”.

So it was virtually impossible for me to wrote any update. I hope you could forgive me…;-)

And because you don´t know a lot of my PC here some pics of it with one or two sentence.

This was the first sketch of my project


The positive form of two side walls which were building with fiberglass



This is the “inner side wall” after I put some parts of the negative form away


HDD case with 3 HDDs and a 80mm fan at the bottom


Disk drive case with an slim line slot in drive


550W power supply from corsair with a selfmade cable management


Light modul with 96LEDs to illuminate the reservoir


Distributor case for the 1300 LEDs at first


And after cut a part away


Case for the relay card

#

So and after I had build all these modules I started with putting them together. Well here two pictures how the Sine Curve looks without the covering



And before I could started the “water-cooling-system”, I had to solved the GPU-cooler problem, because the 8800GT from XFX hasn´t the “referencedesign” of the normal 8800GT. So I had to work on the cooler because the capacitors “where on the wrong place”.



Well and after 800 hours planning and building my PC looks at night so



And at day so














If you have question about my PC please ask me and I´ll try to give you an answer.


P.S.: Unfortunately was I at the DCMM just the fourth place
