Have done quite a bit of work today, the entire frame is now ready to go, gotta love Forsa knots ^^
Thanks Mankz ^^
how i missed this. just EPIC!
BTW guys... check out the door in the background... its just high enough to carry the case trough vertical
Steike for ett monster du lager denne gangen!
So... a door is usually 2 - 2,1m high. That means the case has to be a minimum of 1,8m to bearly fit trough a door. :O One word: SICK!
I'm going to follow this log, as I've done with the rest of your projects so far! Always great fun to watch!
Blir fett dette! Regner med du blir å se på TG 10?
I have the same type of doors at home, and all I can say is that this case is going to be HUGE! And probably gorgeous aswell!
looks massive man! i like!
Just got a mail from my iron monger, some of the aluminium will arrive tomorrow afternoon, expect a update soon folks =) should also get 4x 360 radiators along with the alu...
Have to figure out how many loops that will be needed when considering the practical aspect
Current plans for watercooling would be :
1x 4870 - 1GB
8x DDR3 OCZ FlexX
4x DDR2 OCZ FlexX
3x chipset's, not sure about this one yet though, but stuff tends to get hot without any fan's mounted to the CPU =)
unknown amount of and reservoirs , pumps will be needed aswell
Awesome work, dude!
I´ll be reading this for a while.
the frames look very tidy with those black connectors, looks easy as lego to work with.
When I saw all the drive bays together on the coffee table I couldnt get over the volume this case must need.
First I thought, that this was just silly and waaay over the top.....
Then I came to realize, that I have always been an advocate for just that.
Mod on. Bigger IS better and don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
Anyone know if its possible to get a chipset block on the MSI 790FX-GD70? In that case, wich? =)
It looks really tidy and its really sturdy... however... easy to work with ? Not really... had to use a 5kg sledge hammer and lots of silicon to get em fit down there, but god... theres no way they will ever come out again 0.o
Oh.. Bullitdodger... size DOES matter ^^ my ladie said so herself
AMD joins the team !
This is a great day indeed !
AMD has decided to join up on this project aswell... in other words, everything will be going full fledged AMD - AM3/Phenom 2/AM2. Alot has changed with the phenom 2 from previous generations, so going to give AMD my full support in this build =)
Hardware changes :
CPU 1 : from Intel Q9550 -> Phenom II 955
CPU 2 : from intel Q9550 -> Phenom II 955
CPU 3 : from Intel Atom 330 -> Phenom II 955
Mobo 1 : Asus P5Q premium (775) -> MSI 790FX-GD70 AM3
Mobo 2 : Asus P5Q premium (775) -> MSI 790FX-GD70 AM3
Mobo 3 : Intel D945GCLF2D mITX -> Asus M3A78-T AM2
great! low power consumption and heat, still huge performance and OC. perfect for your project IMO!
This requires a new name as a Personal Computer does not suit it. How about a MTC (Massive Tower Computer?)
Any idea what it will weigh when you are finished?
Would guess around 55-60kg somewhere =) not easily moved ^^
Anyways guys, finished up 8 of the disk holders today, will post up some pictures tomorrow, dont have my usb cable for transfer at hand -.-
