I like it, even if you don't. You are right. Reflective tape would help a lot.
It has been awhile but we're back, hopefully we can finish this project by the end of the month.
2night we want to install the ccfl's after putting in the white foil. and we have good hope that this will do the trick getting the light out of the psu cover.
We will take some new pics of the result!!
Yesterday we applied the folie to the inside of the PSU cover. This was a horrible job, but is now finished..
The picture before the folie was applied:
The pictures after the folie was applied:
To different worlds and in real-life even more. However the photo also shows a great improvement. We are finally happy with the result even with the lights on in the room. However the case is designed to 'operate' in a darker room with dimmed light.
The CCFL's are just taped for now, later this week we will glue them to the case and start with the cable management of the 7 CCFL's.
For now we are happy with the result and one step further in finishing the Exo-S.
Not a long story at this moment. Its already very late and I need to go to bed
Led works, Corsair logo needs to removed..
A few random remaks:
CPU pin was not correct on the mobo. So my buddy took his knive and made the adjustment..
Corsair koeler did not fit next to the motherbord, so we removed a usb connection and a small switch. There is simply no room...
Corsair H50 cooler was not made for a 1156 socket, so we adjusted it so it could fit.
Graphics card backplate adjusted, it did not fit 100%.
There is still a lot to do, but we made some big steps today!
And the photo's
Where is the wrong pin....
The big Exo-S quiz... what is this?
ssd ready to be painted?
And we have a winner ;-)
ah good, you didn't expect model and size
awesome work you do there, btw
Very small update...
We are going to place the inverter onder the bottom tray of the Exo-S. We just didn't have enough space left in the PSU cover with all the cables etc.
Tonight will probably the last night modding the Exo-S itself. Placing above mentioned bracket and installing the SSD will be the last things we need to do.
Tipping some black paint on some screws and some other very minor things need to be done as well.
After that we are going to focus on the transport case in order to transport the Exo-S safely to the various lan's I participate during the year..
Cable management anyone :X
A slightly better solution for all the cables which were bundled and soldered.
Tonight we might be able to boot up the Exo-S for the first time and start installing Windows 7.
This looks great.
Looks fantastic mate! Love the design of the shell
oh wow, this is just plain amazing!
this is one of my favorite worklogs right now.
Really like what u did with the corsair cooler, going the extra mile to mod it. Most people would have left it as is. Keep up the great work
Love this build. Damn good work!
Beautiful work !
I was wondering what happened......Great Build, jus Great Work!
needs to be isolated with this:
And be placed on the bottom of the EXO-S case, below the PSU. At the top left you see the custom created bracket for the inverter that will be used to mount to inverter to the bottom plate.
3 holes made in the bottom. 2 for the CCFL cables, one for the power to the PSU
All the cables of the CCFL lights: [/url]
Custom made sleeved Tie-wraps. Fits perfect in the total picture.
For the first time on a desk, since it's birth...
And we have juice... Thanks to Asus Benelux and in special Rogier!
Full frontal shots was out of focus. We are still planning to do a proper final pic shot! But we need a little bit more time for that!
See you at the next update! We are going to take care of the transport case!
I reeeeaaaaly love the result of your work! You inspired me!
