Yeah good Q by Phinix. What camera and possibly extra equipment do you use?
I have Canon Powershot G10, tiny Unomat tripod , homemade lightbox and that's it
ghetto lightbox can be found on the first page, yesterday I built bigger one for motherboard shooting.
Yeah I guessed you needed a bigger one for the last pics.. Anyway nice to see you are putting extra effort in the pictures, its a real plus on the worklog!
I pretty liked the way that you disposed the hard disk and the ssd drives, this is an inspiration for me.
good to hear
new memory has finally arrived!
i love those ram heat sinks !!!!!
The ram and that board together are just amazing
Neat ram sinks, they definitely go with the mobo sinks
Sweet combination of hardware!
you, sir, have almost exactly the same choice of hardware/colour scheme I went with. Good choice!
This looks fantastic! I can't wait for your next update.
Those fan stickers you bought from zazzle, are they the standard small sized 3.8cm stickers?
disturbed13, Volund, The_Beast, TotalGaos, Monkey Puzzle, Matticus
thanks, glad you like it!
yep, it is small 1.5" stickers
now little update, finally I have managed to finish the PSU by 95%
At the beginning I heatshrinked sleeving just near the PSU output but it turned out not good, at all. I remade it and now it's much better, let's watch step by step:
Slightly widened the hole, it was completely round at first. Bare metal edge can be fixed with marker
Then put all sleeving inside and fixed with zip ties. Also snipped SATA cables and 4-pin motherboard power cable.
But as my friends said, isolating tape sometime tends to peel off under hot conditions, so I remade it with heatshrink
tiny heatshrink first
then twist the wire and put bigger tube over it
And now there is only 4-pin molex left naked, will do it later while prefinal assembly to cut it to exact length.
thanks for watching!
I really do love what you are doing so far, excellent clean modding. I actually had a similar mod planned with the slightly smaller variant of that case but now I may have to re-think my plans .
thanks for the kind comments
okay, that was been awhile since I updated this log but I am still here and it is still going
here is the new stuff:
Looks fantastic so far
Great mods duder
Very clean work mate it looks really good. In particular your sleeving, it's dead on!
thanks guys, I really appreciate your feedback
there is a thing that annoys me for a quite a long time, here it is (no, not the PSU )
I got some G3/8" to G1/4"adapter to put black barbs instead of chromed
little bit of a teasing
now I am basically measuring everything to make some more cuts due to the new hardware
Heh. Great attention to sleeving, and nice pictures. Ive underestimated the use of a cheap lightbox.
This looks freaking epic man!!! Love it!
