After a really busy weekend, did some more work on the base


Starting by disassembling the PSU. Because I didn't have much space inside the case, I've decided to remove the connector from the PSU and solder the "new" connector directly inside


Connector out


Soldering...


Don't forget the heatshrink tubing




And last, installed the "quick swap" connector (I will explain this )


And assembled everything back




Finnaly, I received new MDF for the base!


Started cutting


And started assembling the pieces that will fix the base in the outside case


fixing the PSU


And this is for the rad


Next, started painting, and while the paint didn't dry, started working in the CPU's Block LEDs


Some sleeving






And here, almost painted!


The screws for the seat rails


Next, did a little clean to my graphics card


And started assembling the hardware in the "inside box" (Random photos )








After the paint dried, I've started assembling the hardware in the "outside box". Starting with the rad


Rad Placed...


Here the extension's connectors


And last, started assembling the watercooling....Need some more tubing and curves, but for now this will work




And that's it for today..More news tomorrow

Edit: Just found out that got a mod of the month nomination.. wasn't expecting that. Don't know what to say...Thank you very much guys!

Nice fun project Fifas & it fits in nicely with your setup.

I think I wouldn't be able to resist doing similar if I bought a wheel & pedals.
Stars & rep

One more time, thanks all of you for the MOTM nomination. It really means a lot to me.

And here's a very small update!

The front/top structure is almost ready. Missing the cover from the Monitor


Received this today...


Turn it on for testing and.....GEEEZ, that's a lot of light! I never though this will had so many light. I need to control it in some way...


So I start building this! This is connected to an Arduino, and will control the FANs and LEDs. It is still a prototype, so it's kinda ugly. After testing I'll make a nice PCB


Next filled the watercooling and started searching for leaks...


And some random shots.







Back to work now

Thanks Mankz!

Because I'm really busy, here's a very very small update

(...or maybe just a photo )



Almost ready!

Going to start designing the new "extras"... (Handbrake, RPM and Shift Lights, and a button box)

So, first let me say I'm sorry because I don't have any new photos or updates, but I want to tell you some stuff about what I'm working

The "mod project" itself it's practically done. Now I just need to finish the little "extras" I've already talk about...I will make a Handbrake (Rally/Drift style, next to the Gearbox), a Gear and RPM light, and a Button Box, for extra buttons.

Maybe later a better hardware, but not for now.

Another thing that people ask me about it's the monitor stand. I have a new project for a better monitor stand, with VESA mounting. That way, I can have different monitors. And this will allow me to have triple monitors too. But I will not build that for now. Need to find a job first

Meanwhile, I've been working on another "toy". A homemade CNC, and will use it to make some small stuff for this project

And one more time, Thank you all for your feedback!

Hey Guys!

Sorry for the lack of updates, but finnaly found a temporary job, and had no time for the project

Meanwhile, had a problem with the FAN Controller. The problem is that my Cooler Master Fans don't like the PWM control at all, and they make a really loud buzz.

So, after a little messing with PWM frequencies in the Arduino, ended with this:



Still not perfect, so I need to change it to work without PWM, and still need to make the program to controll it without need to type the values all the time
