Seriously love the colors under the UV light. Great work Peter, Ivo and Sander.
Wow, I love them oO
Gorgeous stuff and so well executed.
whoooa :O! Those are some darn sick radguards !
Time to get back on this project!
Been busy the last few weeks with some other things that needed to happen first
First ordered some more Q-blocks
Think these will give a cool effect too.
Something I did which took me a few full days.
Cleaned up and re-organised the complete attic.
And another thing I did..
Probably the cheapest case I ever made
Desk for the 'clean' work.
Also received something really nice from ASUS Benelux.
Screams to be modificated
Such a pleasure to work in a clean spot
On to the next updates!
Impressive man cave.
I don't think I've ever had such a strong desire to explore a room before, that is heaven right there. That PCI-e SSD is ridiculously sexy too, got to hand it to Asus and their design departments.
I NEED a mancave like this.
Admittadly, I'd probably fangirl for a few minutes( in a manly way ), but the potential, oh, the potential.
Decided to only use some handtools and a dremel this time
First wreck it.
And measuring the acrylic.
First drilled the holes then used the fretsaw.
You can easily drill holes near the edges with a dremel on high speed by the way without breaking it.
And sanded the edges.
Always a lovely moment when you can peel off the protection layer
Used transparent glue and left it to dry for a night.
Then I found out I didn't have long M2 bolts after all ..
So removed the standoff's and drilled all holes in PCB and covers with 3.2mm.
Plenty of M3 here
30 nuts later.
And with some LEDS on.
With his little sisters.
As ever looks top class work
Looking good Peter! That backplate for it works really well with the sticker. In daylight not too impressive but under Uv exactly right!
I'm still alive
Months ago I got the idea to have a PS4 on the right side, cooled with custom made waterblocks.
However after months of doubt I have decided not to do this cause of the time and finances involved for this (MARSII block.. pfff )
Last weekend I took a few hours to see how I will continue .. and .. I'm totally back
Also will use the pumps and reservoirs separate instead of the combo's.
And .. going to do 2 separate loops with each 2 pumps, however with the use of 4 valves I want to be able to switch to one huge loop with 4 pumps and 4 radiators.
So .. another update.
Used rubber again on top of the acrylic edge to hide the green top side and isolate the desk inside.
Also 2 extra grills from ModWithMe which I will use on the inside of the desk.
Finally I can mount all 4 Admirals
Ook kan ik eindelijk alle andere radiatoren monteren.
Removing sticker from the other fans.
Quite some bolts.
Number 3 done
Something I ordered months ago through Kickstarter.
More about that later.
Also 2 long LED strips inside, nice effect when opening it
And the last one.
Number 4 .. done.
This photo was made just after I decided to drop the PS4 idea and I was measuring it all.
First make the reservoir covers a little more shiny .. not too much, don't want to see all the leds in detail.
Sawn off all reservoir clamps.
And another try
You will lose the skin on your fingers ... but I love it!
Testing how it will look with a Bitspower LED RAM MOD underneath.
Means it will have the same 'heartbeat' effect as the Razer mice. (See video!)
Will be a lot of measuring
This is how the should work, and yep I often use paint for these kind of things
Things could still change but personally I already like it.
And a short video of how it's standing now.
Freakin awesome L3p I'm love the colour combination and I'm trying to imagine the loop filled, with all the other light effects and acrylic panels. It's going to look soooo good.
Thanks mate! I'm all enthusiastic ever since I placed those reservoirs lol.
very nice: Pouce:
Stop making us all have inferiority complexes about our machines please
Amen to that!
If they handed out awards for most minds blown, this, would pwn!
Immensely awesome work in here, just outstanding very well done
