Enjoyed this speedy mod. Glad no rebel scum decided to blow it up at the LAN!

So.. when's the Death Star II mod coming? (then you really will need a new office)

I just realised what's missing from this mod:-

A Snowspeeder shaped mouse - wired of course!

LOL, Its not completely done yet and I have 7 buildupdates and video's to share , will be adding as I fo=ind time to structure the images. I have already been asked to and I would love to build the deathstar! Only drilling 20 to 30.000 holes for the lighting will get tiresome quick and cost a lot of time I think!

Hi all, here is another update of the work that I had to do for the AT-AT!

With the hood removed I could start thinking on how I would mount (and cover the non attractive parts) of the hardware!




Had to cut out the middle section of the models interior baseplate without messing to much with the fixation points that provided its structural strength.
Cut away to much and it would not be capable of supporting the hardware.




Replaced the frosted plexi with a piece of UV red I had laying around. This will fit better into the overall lighting scheme.




Playing around with the location of the pump !


This looks like an easy job but actually took a couple of hours getting it to fit exactly with no luight from the interior shing through on the sides, the hood needed to to fit perfectly and the pump had to be taken apart to fit into the hole in the vertical piece of plexi. Must have done 50 test fittings in total.




One of the main design criteria was that it had to look original from the outside, so the pump had to be well inside the model for the backdoor to close. (unfortunately this also meant my GTX580 was 2 cm to long)




This was the original idea, the hardware on that location was soon changed to the I/O plate!


Well that was it for now !
Next update will have my first ever build video (let me know what you think!)

Hi all, here is another update of the work that I had to do for the AT-AT!

Started work on all the cabling that had to be extended through the legs and into the body for the pc hardware. The 2x240 radiators and PSU will come in the base.








Had to cut out a lot of plastic to be able to route all the cables through. But I had to do that again without compromising the structural integrity of the model asa AT-AT that continuously drop to its knees wont destroy any rebel bases soon!






Also had to route 2 x 3/8th Tygon tubing to and from the rads into the legs. This was a very tricky point. I do have some restriction in my loop now, but the cooling works beautifully!


When all the wiring was done, I had to trace them all to be sure I wouldnt connect any of them incorrectly!






All the cabling installed! What did I install in total:
2 X 6 Wire GPU Pwr
4 + 4 Wire Mobo Pwr
24 Wire ATX Connector
4 Wire Molex
HDMI
USB2.0
CAT5e
2 x 3/8th Tubing


Continued ---

--- Continued

Also installed a little fan, its all watercooled (except for the RAM) But having some airflow is never a bad thing!




The connection to the base. This way it can move around the base a little but is still firmly attached (this is actually one of the first thing I will change; get a full modular psu)


AT-AT Chainsaw Massacre --- There's legs everywhere !!


Anyone got a wiring scheme???


Luckely I had some tiny helper hands for them hard to reach places!

That was it for this update !

Hi all, here is another update of the work that I had to do for the AT-AT!

Started work on the reservoir that needed to be placed between the legs !


Heavily modified the clamp to made it fit perfectly when the I/O hood was placed.










It was really removing a mm at a time to make it fit perfectly !














Fits perfectly into the design of the AT-AT's underbelly IMO !


Cutting away all the places where ther res needed to go, left me with a large hole through which light could escape! This hasd to be fixed !


Fixed!


I modded a 10 cm ccfl to fit inside the reservoir !


Just need to make a resistor setup to be able to control the amount of light emitted by the CCFL. This is just too strong ! I had to cover the whole inside of the body with alu tape to prevent light from shining through!


That was it for this update!
The video will follow soon!

I was enjoying this project until I found you were using child labor!

Actually I'm worried about you having the pump above the reservoir.

Thanks man!

LOL, if she cant look inside my office or modding room at least once a day, she'll be crying untill she does! Cant keep her away from the EURISKO or the AT-AT.

What has you worried about the res cheaps?

As a long-time Star Wars fan I'll subcribe to this project.

Also, I'd highly recommend to anyone the "official" conclusion of the movies by Timothy Zahn, the Thrawn Trilogy as well as the Hand of Thrawn Duology. The books, mind you...

Hey

Cheaps is referring to the general rule that the res or t-line should be above the pump so that the pump does not ' run dry ' during low coolant situations, eg filling the loop.

I love the build, keep it up.

I'm guessing you found a way to get the lines bled before you cranked it up, though.
The odds are good you will know about a leak early too. The rig won't look housebroken.

Looking back. I think pointing the pump outlet down is a no-no too. I forget...

Aha, yes! Thanks !
What I did is put the fillport 5 cm before the inlet of the pump.
That way the pump didnt run dry!


Actually I did fry a motherboard and CPU with this build. But that was because there was some coolant trapped in the 12v (vertical connector) when I put the build horizontal it ran out and shorted the whole thing. BAD LUCK !!

Its Aaaamazing! That is all.

(oh and also, I wish I'd had this idea, and then was blessed by the talent, tools and time to pull it off)
