You thought you got rid of me when I didn't win MOTM for my CarPC, didn't you? I'm back! Since all the plans for this mod has changed, I decided to put in the specs of the hardware that is going into it. P67 Sabertooth I5-2500K 8GB Corsair memory 580 GTX Gainward 1.5GB GFX I havn't gotten the case yet, but waiting for it. I'm getting a couple of little things for the article I wrote for Custom PC Magazine, and amongst those I'm getting a Fractal Design Refine R3. This will be used for this mod. I have no idea of the color of it, but I know what I'm hoping for! *cough* white *cough* It's not going to be an insane mod, just a couple of little things here and there. I havn't worked out all the small querks out yet, but the idea is as follows: Custom watercooling. (I'm guessing that's kind of required on my part by now) Custom CPU block. (started that) Custom Reservoir. (This is going to require some heatbending in the oven again) Custom pump housing. 1 x 120mm radidator for the CPU. I don't know what to do about the NB and SB for now. She's using the pc, and she knows I'm going to do something to it, but has no idea what! Since she's in school and crazy about math and physics, I'm going with the theme of "The Theory of Everything". I'm going to paint decals of equations from Quantum Physics, String Theory etc. on it. ( Afaik String Theory is not combineable with The Theory of Everything as such, but they have some cool equations so leave me alone! ) Since my own pc needs a graphic upgrade soon, I'm going to put 1 or 2 9800gtx+ gfx cards in there. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say I'm going to keep the waterblocks on the gfx(s). Now, the cool part about this mod is going to be the DVD drive. I'm going to keep it a secret untill I get the whole thing worked out, but I'm going to drop a lot of hints for it! First I needed an old dvd drive. Cut out the pieces I need: Sprocket didn't fit with my plans: I need this to be lined up as well as possible, so thin plastic is not going to cut it. Measured up the housing and made it in aluminum: Mounted the sprockets. Seems I still know how a caliper works, all the measurements fits perfectly! : Pushed the end piece onto it, just for a look: This is where I am now. I would love to get this done by X-mas, so let's see how things work out. I need some help from guys at work with the electronic side of this, as I have no idea of what I'm doing. I know how to blow a fuse in my appartment by putting my hands in the PSU, and that's about it! I also ordered a Passive InfraRed sensor, that should arrive in a couple of weeks. Hope it will work with my plan. I hope you will be patient as this is going to take some time!
