Watch this space intently, we are still on track to completion very very soon!
We are back after 48 hours of insanity to complete i1.0-II and despite a few exploded LED strips things went astoundingly well. First our double Strix attac.
These will not be required where we are going...
...on the nickel/plexi train to block city.
After a very fast check to see that the monstrous GPU + block combination did indeed fit inside our very small case it was directly on to sleeving, tackling those long 8-pins straight away. Each wire was cut to length in place, removed, crimped, sleeved then reassembled in position.
Supplies and tools used were the usual knipex, MDPC-X CTX3, Molex 15-16AWG mini-fit-jr crimps...
...15AWG MDPC-X wire, pre-cut anthracite shrinks...
...and of course Carbon-BTI sleeving.
Some considerable time and pain
love later all cables were complete.
Now fast forward all the way back to Essex it was time to strip down i1.0-I and steal his lovely 1TB 960 Pro's.
That of course meant some light disassembly of i1.0-II to get at both M.2 slots.
Front pupperino going in.
With the original EK supplied digital LED strip slightly exploded after neglecting the (VERY INCONSIDERATE!) pinout we had to replace the strip, this did however seem like an excellent opportunity to overclock the LED's to a massive 144 per meter with a ridiculously dense substitute.
Following the huge procedure of simultaneously fitting the block, LED wire and fan wires to the motherboard all at the same time while the fan wires were still attached to the case it was time to do the last 4 tubes.
Two straights and two 45° bends completed the loop...
...that means just one thing remains to be done!
aaaand back to the studio for final pictures we go. Catch you all very soon.
Welcome to the first wave of final pictures for i1.0 Prototype-II in its natural powered off state. There will be more, and there will be lights, some of which might be RGB!
yayayaya, we made it in time! Easily ofc
Time for the serious stuff!
Don't worry guys, 2017 will be over soon.
The dude, you are a genius, but RGB illumination too... The black-and-white option looks much more effectively. As the genius I speak to the genius. Or you instead of a Christmas fir-tree will use it? Merry Christmas!
The year of FAAAAAABULOUS color schemes.
Of course RBGB was a joke. Don't see any reason to wait until 2018 to be classy!
Praise to heaven. And that I don't understand jokes. Black-and-white forever! Mod it is delightful!
Good stuff man! Came out really nice! All white and all for xmas
Great build nice and clean, I have a question, when you connected the 4 fans together did you add them to the PWM on the motherboard or to a molex?
