'Looks like a racing toaster.'
I know right ! i felt so chuffed making it ! it's the little things in life
Rice Burner !!!
Better put a wing on it ay
I did get a small update done today !
Just trying different things for the side panel.
This time ive made a proper type side panel from 6mm and done double routed inner and outer edges, this should give some "depth" to the sides rather than just a flat panel.
For now i'm testing out some slight tinted windows. I may go clear or poss orange. But i think the contrast of the white on tint is a modern look.
I'm thinking a hook lock and single rear screw system this time round to hold them in place.
The sides were a bit of work with all the extra shape.
The tinted is cut to the exact same size as the opening this will make it a large press fit key.
Next is the glue the window to the side panel.
And give it a test fit.
I was a little bit worried that the window would be a little bit too light.....
So i chucked in some hardware and can safely say that the tint is more then dark enough :thumbup:
Gettin there slowly
Ive gone with the older style corsair hydro AIO as it still uses one of the lowest profile block pump combo.
As this is a 120mm cooler and im using a 140 fan in the front ive made a 6mm clear adaptor and to take up some hose ive mounted the rad east west.
I may upgrade this later to a 140 AIO when i upgrade the hardware .
To help hold the GPU secure ive added some standoffs, this will also keep the back of the card off the TT riser cable
For the riser cable ive also added some standoffs.
These will connect to a L bracket that will hold the connector in place.
The bracket is tapped and secured to the base
And for now the bracket doubles as a SSD mount as well.
Some cable tie tidy up work
Add in the Corsair RGB crap
And finally fire it up and load some windows.
Still got a ways to go.... need to come up with a new system to lock the side panels on and add maybe a
usb port and def gotta add a power button.
The mobo to panel mount USB3 offerings available may be too bulky for that setup.
Your prolly right mate, I would like to upgrade the hardware sooner than later, Specially the gpu as it really needs to draw and exhaust out the back. I'm on the hunt for a R9 Nano
I hunted the same game for my Nano-TV, Bitcoins miners baught all of dem, so they say , wanted to buy another one, but I gave up... I found it a bit oversold...actually 615 euros (690$) on a french online hardware seller:
and it's the only one google could find out here...(I payed mine 350 euros, but years ago)
Cheers Kim i did find one ! @ $200_AU but baulked and lost So with a bit of tweaking ive decided to rotate the Rad... this allows me to fit a longer GPU ! So looking at some other options now
A small update ! now that the build is at a point where i can use it as my workshop daily... it's getting a bit neglected.
BUT i got some motivation with weekend.
Adding a small fan to the rear... not that the case really needed it but it filled the spot nice
While i was there i added a quick power switch, i'll box it later.
And did some work the the fan to rad adaptor plate , adding a angled leading edge and adding a few coats of satin black...
led rgb cutest I've ever seen, congratulations
