K2 - Video added

FINAL SHOTS - STAGE ONE

So it's been a while since K2 was finished but I recently picked up a new camera so have finally been able to make a video!












PROJECT LOG

Hey there everyone, I have been wanting to get another computer built for a while now but have never been able to find the time!

A couple of days ago I was invited to head over to Berlin for the campus party, as soon as I found out I knew that I needed a new case to take with me!

Obviously this log may not be as in depth or action packed in the beginning as I have around 5 days to finish this or at least get a working prototype up!

Plus there is always the possibility of everything going wrong and having to hold it together with duct tape for a week until I can get back from Berlin and work things out. What ever happens I'm hoping it's awesome


So without further ado, I present the K2 concept:



Simple in essence, cooled by a single radiator drawing air through the open finned design.

I had originally designed this to make use of an AIO cooler but unfortunately that wont be ready in the next week so I'll be installing a standard loop in until then.



Again; sorry for the poor pictures I'm just taking them on the phone as I go.

First up.. Safety! and a new hat that I can't wear till winter





Ok so now a random mixture of images from the last 2 days!

Set some tool paths for the CNC



And off she goes



I'm just using what ever scraps I have left over in the shop for this as its a prototype and I also don't have time to wait on a delivery.



Some 10mm stock goes under the mill for some framework.



All the fins get a coat of Graphite sparkle spray and then it's a lovely sit down in the garden to assemble.



The bottom fin set.



The radiator also got a quick coat to help it blend in.



Time for a test fit (using my wife as a wonderful assistant)

Really like the case design, those 2 big fans at the bottom pulling air in look very nice indeed. But...5 days to complete this! woosh, i wish you the best of luck - I cant wait to see the final case, held up with duct tape or not

Thanks hoochy, well it's now self supporting which is always a bonus so the use of duct tape is looking less likely

So day two!

First I set up the CNC to mill out the plexi part of the motherboard tray.



Bit of a jump now... but here's the assembled motherboard / mid section



Next victim is the panel that holds the radiators and also connects the mid section to the base.

Hot off the CNC


Bit of de-burring and its a quick test fit




All together now that 5 day deadline is looking achievable




So I'll leave this update with my favourite shot of the day. Sadly you will all have to wait to find out what this block is being turned into






PS: I'm always updating the E22 Facebook page as I go throughout the day, so if your interested in watching the project come together in real time as well as keeping up to date on how I fair in Berlin head over and join the fun

I'll just be moving across my current rig into this for the time being. Hopefully I'll find some sexy new stuff to fill it with while I'm over there

So day 3!

Started off by cutting the back panel out of some 5mm black plexi





Next it was time to return to that mysterious block of clear plexi from yesterday.

Checking to make sure to audio i/o fits



back panel screwed on.



finally all together contemplating using this piece of smoked plexi for the left top as the PSU should look fairly nice once its all done



---

On to the door

I made this little fellow out of some white POM and then squeezed a spacer into it to create a bracket for the door to hang on and swivel in.



The basic action is shown here in video form, this still needs a bit of work and mainly tightening up but I am waiting for the last delivery of small components

Just a quick Day 4 log update as day 5 looks to be just as hectic!

Made some support blocks to hold the smoked plexi top in place.



Fitted it in and then sanded it flush



Trying something a bit different out for the storage mounting



Needed to generate some clearance between the radiator and the panel to allow for the 180deg fitting combo I have. Grabbed a scrap piece of 10mm plexi and started hacking it up. just needs a bit more sanding and were done



After all that I finally managed to start the painting! unfortunately seeing as I have less than 48 hours to finish and box it all up I will only be able to get in 2 coats and minimal sanding between. Still it should look ok

Gloss white base



BMW graphite sparkle back



Mid section
