Hey Guys, I’ve always enjoyed coming here and going through the amazing worklogs; this place has such a positive vibe and really inspires creativity. I’d like to become more active here and thought I’d introduce myself by posting a recent project - some of you may have seen the original worklog on another site. My goal here is to whittle the whole thing down to one page… albeit a very long one! While this build is finished, I thought some might like to see how it came together… in an abridged presentation if you will. This project was quite an undertaking and spanned a six month period beginning in January and only just wrapped up last week. The following are portions of the original worklog that I’ve edited down to 20 Chapters – essentially featuring the build process. Some of the text may seem odd – you’ll have to remember that this build has already taken place. If you’re impatient, you can scroll to the bottom of the page and see how it turned out (after all 271 images load of course). I resized most of the images to assist with loading – they can be seen at their full size by clicking them. Ok, enough gum-flapping – here’s Daniel’s murderbox – with a sLight Twist… the abridged version… Cheers. Chapter.01 – The Plan We were asked to do something a bit different with a murderMod TJ07 and thought some might be interested. Our Customer, Daniel, masterfully secured 3 Matrix Orbital PLEDs which are no longer available. Daniel wanted us to incorporate the 3 displays somewhere in the case, viewable from outside. What exactly are PLEDs you ask? The objective is to design and produce a mounting structure for the 3 PLEDs, install radiator(s), pump(s), reservoir and plumb the LC loop up through the midplate. Once complete, the case will be shipped to Daniel in Germany and he will finish the build by installing all his components. In addition to the PLED project, there will also be a little surprise (hopefully). We’ve been working on a new concept and hope to feature it in Daniel’s build – more on that later. WORKLOG EDIT: This plan evolved into doing the entire build. The 3 Amigos – Made in Canada, shipped to Germany, back to Canada, and when installed in Daniel’s murderMod TJ07, back to Germany they go! The first step is to remove the drive bay mounts and cover the screens with lo-tack protective film (after all, these are irreplaceable). Next, we’ll have to ditch the honkin’ big external USB cables and replace them with custom made internal cables (that we’ll sleeve of course). Ahhh… that’s better! Ok, time for some destruction… Oops… not quite yet. I’m pleased to say that “The RotoZip of Destruction” (RZoD) will be used in this project – later. “Say hello to my little friend...” I just wanted to show you the business end of this puppy. At 30,000rpm, this 6amp bad boy goes through aluminum like hot butter through a stack of pancakes! (errr... ) Anyway, it’s pretty much my most favorite thing in the whole world. Think of a Dremel - all doped up on goofballs… Finally, here’s the concept for the PLED mount. We used a shot of FC’s murderbox build and did a 3d camera match to create a visualization of what the PLED mount design will look like. From the exterior – same deal; 3d camera match. We may choose to extend the main window forward or go with this design. We'll see... The idea is to try to keep things very clean and minimal. Measurements indicate that there should be enough room on the exterior side of the front HD structure to enclose the displays. This location will allow us to conceal wiring. The challenge will be to design the mount so it can easily be removed for access to the HD structure behind. That would be easy if we thu-bolted from the outside… but since when is easy any fun.
