    ooh, i might have to do that with a spare IO (as it needs a fill port, since I've changed the tubing)

    Yes, try it, its very effective! Let me know if it worked ;) !!

     


    The frame is ready now we don’t need to weld anymore. So we can drill some holes for mounting.

    The panels we use to cover up most of the case are made of wood. They all be covered in black self adhesive foil with a kind of 'sandpaper look’ texture.


    These are the panels under the lasercutter.

    awesome! 

    Thanks a lot! :D

     

     

    Last update before the final pictures!
    We wanted the outside of AIO to blend in with the inside details. To do that we cut out patterns of adhesive foil:
    First black textured foil

     

    10_zpsqdc53qhl.jpg

     

    And then details with white

     

    11_zpscjr9il2j.jpg

     

    Also on the front where we couldn’t mod much because most of it is glass

     

    12_zps7uyn60ct.jpg

     

    sneakpeak

     

    13_zpskc79n9pe.jpg

     

    Cutting all of the foil made me dizzy.... 

     

    14_zpsnka4qbak.jpg

     

    15_zps3nw1njad.jpg

     

    And ofcourse the crate!!!! Very sturdy with a hinge for the lid. Hopefully it will protect the aio during all of its travels.

    Thanks Guys :D ! Good to read your comments :)!

     

    Another update on….
    Hardware it is!

     

    For the cooling of the build we used a  Nepton 240 from CoolerMaster. Ofcourse we had to tweak it before it could be used in the build. The space for the cooler is quite limited.
    Thats why we choose a AIO so you don’t have to add a separate pump and reservoir. The tubes on the AIO are positioned in a way that they stick out to the front which is not really convenient in this build. So we decided to upgrade the aluminium radiator with a copper one and adjust the position of the tubes :)

     

    The patient; a Coolermaster Nepton 240M

     

    610_zpsiw4yme9a.jpg

     

    611_zpsqwcod9ki.jpg

     

    Ok…there it goes… ;)

     

    612_zpsxl4opah7.jpg

     

    613_zpsw7ti2imt.jpg

     

    614_zpsgjxwlfj2.jpg

     

    Everytime I see this i have to think of.. 'We void your warranty' ;) ...

     

    619_zpsft5j9ops.jpg

     

    Under this rubberplug there is a screw with a rubberring that we need to make a new fill port in the new copper radiator

     

    620_zpsh290hrbw.jpg

     

    621_zpskmlcgcx4.jpg

     

    New radiator and better :D!

     

    615_zpsrmy1tcoq.jpg

     

    Coolermaster fans  on the new !

     

    617_zpshrioqllj.jpg

     

    Here you see the first version of the fill port! We drilled a hole on the bottom and glued on some extra metal with M4 thread.
    Works well, but could be better. The next try was a bit different from the one before.

     

    618_zpsrud5zr8m.jpg

     

    Step one is cutting the screw to the right size so it doesn’t block the water flow.

     

    623_zpsrr7tejlc.jpg

     

    This time the fill port is located in the fitting, so it is richt on top of the radiator and facing the top of the case.

     

    616_zps0tjsfea1.jpg

     

    Step 2. is making a facet with a vile on the topside of the fitting.

     

    624_zpsjdxe6cih.jpg

     

    Step 3. Drilling a 1,5mm hole.

     

    625_zpsickrx9up.jpg

     

    Step 4. drilling the hole again with a 3,2mm drill

     

    626_zpsblunpkct.jpg

     

    Step 5. Ofcourse…making thread (what else..) M4 because that is the size of the CM screw ;) !

     

    628_zpsx29mnx2s.jpg

     

    En thats it! 


    And don’t forget about the rubber ring!

    Next update more :) !

    Super long update coming up!!!!


    But first… ;)


    Took me some time to post a new one, I’ve been working on my jewelry collection. I had a big jewelry exhibition and everything worked out very well!
    here are a few pic’s of the jewelry and presentation! (the casemodding skills came in quite handy with the presentation) !

    that said…. lets add some pictures :D!

     

    Here you see how the corner pieces are attached to the frame. First we drilled holes in the steel and made some thread….again…. ;)

    Aaaand another update!

     

    The new stand needs a nice finish ofcourse, so we decided to cover the sides with skye leather:

    This is going to be epic.

    Thanks guys :D !

     

    Ok,

     

    After welding trying to fit everything together again!

     

    P9067328_zpsjsos5gxj.jpg

     

    P9067348_zpsesushysu.jpg

     

    The on/off switch :)

     

    P9067343_zpsxi653cyj.jpg

     

    Ofcourse we tried to testfit every component, so that you have a good idea of the size of the frame in total. 
    On the right of the motherboard there will be a 240 radiator and below the GPU. The powesupply and the SSD will be placed in the foot at the back!

     

    P9067334_zpsxzrdrlb3.jpg

     

    The frame, sanded and ready for painting.

     

    P9067357_zps7ggxa6t4.jpg

     

    P9200113_zps4de5gg3b.jpg

     

    The corners of the frame are made of POM (acetal) a very tough and hard kind of plastic which will not break 
    They will protect the frame from blows and other things during transportation.
    In the next update I will add the pictures of making these corner pieces!

    Drilling is relatively easy in this material. These holes are for some customized nuts. The nuts are customized on a lathe so that they can be easily pressed in the corner pieces.

     

    PB140865_zpskv4dodut.jpg

     

    In the corner pieces we made some thread to hold the bolts in place. The thread will make sure that the bolts don’t have to be glued in but are simply clamped by the thread.

     

    PB140868_zps0t0n5nuu.jpg

     

    Cut out a bit of material to make it fit to the frame perfectly.
    Maybe you have already met “Dave” the multitool ;)?! He has been SUPER helpful!!
    (Next update I will post another photo of dave ;) !)

     

    PB140871_zpskqcshyzb.jpg

     

    PB140872_zpslf2954la.jpg

     

    Now just press in the bolt with the vice and because of the thread it slides in nicely and stays in place!

     

    PB140873_zpsgmjvr1py.jpg

     

    PB140874_zpsqtxypcvu.jpg

     

    PB150876_zpspfon5ffe.jpg

     

    Tadaa, the final result of the corner pieces on the frame, In total there are 4 pieces!
    Also you can see the result of painting :) !

    In this update you will see the style of the mod. It has to go with the msi-gaming style with ofcourse the dragon. Pixel is always such a great help so we brought him with us to the workshop for the first time!

    He liked it but stayed very close with us

     

    10_zps9lqwf1qm.jpg

     

    The ‘other’ half of the dragon cut out in red plexi:

     

    11_zpsxbqax3qc.jpg

     

    And if you then cover the transparent plexi with a textured black foil it will look like so!

    The heat pipes just looks fantastic. Nice clean picture.

    Yes, they do indeed! That was one of the reasons we wanted to open this thing up ;) !

     

    Aaand another update!

    Last update we cut open the back of the aio but also lost its foot……☺  
    So we make a new one! This was a bit tricky as there is very limited space and you cant just drill a hole for a screw for example. The whole thing is also pretty heavy!

    Luckily we had some steel lying around that has roughly the right shape already. Step one is cutting it in pieces:

     

    10_zpsnjyueqft.jpg

     

    Folding the corners and edges

     

    11_zpssnslckaw.jpg

     

    This is the way it’ll be fixed to the frame

     

    12_zps50fvfroi.jpg

     

    13_zpsqqtxmcpe.jpg

     

    14_zps2pwewp4o.jpg

     

    And then we started cutting the first pieces with the lasercutter!

    Welcome!

    Looks cool, the only thing I am concerned about is the 27" touchscreen that is only Full HD.

    Touchscreens usually mean the user is supposed to be up close and interact with the screen, can you confirm DPI is not an issue? I would prefer QHD resolution but then again would a 980M be sufficient for a Gaming computer.

    Ahh... it's always about compromises (:

     

     

    Thanks!!

    I totally agree, but the Full HD works out nicely. It is an IPS screen and it looks very good!

    QHD would of course be better, but well... you can't have everything ;)

    The touch screen BTW is super handy for work related stuff for gaming it is less interesting, but maybe in the future it will add an extra dimension to gaming ...

    An urgent one for Computex!!!
    Not a normal case this time but the Gaming 27 6QE all in one from MSI :)
    Inside is a desktop i7-6700, GTX 980M and a Full HD touchscreen
    link:
    https://www.msi.com/All-in-One-PC/Gaming-27-6QE.html#hero-overview

     

    Very exciting and challening because there is not much space inside and it all needs to be finished within 2 weeks....

     

    Schermafbeelding%202016-05-22%20om%2012.

     

    So quickly start cutting!!!

    Now you can see the hardware!

    We had to take off the foot because it was in the middle. In the next update we will make a new foot so he can stand up again :D


  12. BannerFlat_zpssgrr9asf.png


    Ok, this is how the prototype was build. We welded the frame with brass welding rod and a propane/oxygen torch but we quickly decided to switch to simple electrode welding. This worked out a lot easier and quicker!
    After the prototype we also adjusted the design of the frame so it became lighter and more sturdy!

    This is the outer frame welded and sanded, already looking good (if I say so myself ;) )

    Fits like a puzzel :D!

     

    P9027302_zpstc9zyznp.jpg

     

    Made the angles so the profile fits in the frame nicely. There will be 2 horizontal and one vertical beam in the frame to attach the stand/foot to.

    The backpanel was a lot of work to draw. The radiator and fans have to blow the air through and the motherboard will be attached to it. There will be a cut out to easily install the CPU Cooler.

    Wow, it is way bigger than I it looks like.

    The riser you liked has a rather funny description. I assume it is screwed up by the automatic translation of English (?). They use the wrong units for the metrics they descripe and generally not the adequate therms. Not very thrustworthy, but I hope in your native language it looks better.

    However, up to 250 mm you get away with the non-impedance matched cables, 350 mm is already a stretch. But if it doesn't work, just set the like to PCIe 2.0, it's not making a performance difference for non-GPGPU workloads (e.g. gaming).

    Good to hear!

    I think the translation is not right, it is a dutch webshop ;) they! have a lot of good stuff!

    Seems like both 3M and Li Heat cables are good then! :)

    Looks interesting. But some precisions: is it a wall build for a desk?

    For the welding, as long as they are strong enough, and it's behind the frame, I don't think many people will care (at least not me).

     

    Thanks :D!

    No, it is not a wall build for a desk, good idea though ;) ! It is a case that will be used to send to Press and reviewers, so just a ..case..? ;)

    The welds are strong so we should be good! In the end result you don't see any of the welds :)

    ... and an other one by FAT. Nice!

    What are the dimensions of the frame? I assume it's designed for a mATX MoBo.

     

    If you need a 500 mm PCIe riser, 3M makes very good once: http://www.digikey.com/product-search/en?mpart=8KC3-0726-0500&vendor=19

    I used them and I can resommend them.

    Yes, and there will be more :D !!

    The dimensions of the frame are roughly 45x65cm it actually will fit a ATX extended MoBo and any graphics card !

    Thanks for the tip! We used the ones made by Li Heat from High flow; http://www.highflow.nl/hardware/videokaarten/li-heat-pci-e-gen-3.0-ribbon-flexible-riser-cable-black.html which also work very well! :)

    Hi Guys!

     

    It has been a bit quiet lately, but that doesn’t mean I’ve been sitting around entertaining Pixel  (.. ok a bit true ;))

    This is a build made for MSI, they asked to make 3 demo systems to sent to reviewers and press in Europe.
    There were a few conditions to this build;


    All the best features of the hardware had to show (duhuu)
    It had to be solid and sturdy so it could be send to lots of different locations.
    New hardware that hasn’t even been invented yet has to fit in there ;) !

     

    The first one was the prototype and this one was displayed at a event in the Netherlands called Firstlook.
    Here are the renders of the scratch build!

    msi%20frame%201_zpsqiqsrsli.jpg

     

    msi%20frame%203_zps47yrvyyv.jpg

     

    Very easily said, it is a flat surface where you can install the motherboard and the GPU. In the stand at the back of the case we will build the power supply and SSD.
    2 things are very important, a good PCI-express cable and a modded AIO cooler!
    Highflow.nl has the perfect PCI-expresscables from Li Heat. these calls run stable on 3.0 and are available till 35cm and nicely covered in black fabric. Looks perfect! 

    This is where it all begins, steel steel and more steel ;)!

    &…..cutting!

     

    PB050689_zpsrgeyijhi.jpg

     

    PB050690_zpssdnqjget.jpg

     

    Cutting angles so all the parts will fit together nicely in the end.

     

    PB050690_zpssdnqjget.jpg

     

    PB050693_zps6kq2dwuk.jpg

     

    Now, puzzle everything together ;)!

     

    PB050694_zpswngnco7m.jpg

     

    PB050695_zpsosdemvqa.jpg

     

    This will be a part of the stand at the back of the case which will hold the power supply.

     

    PB050697_zpsgn4uzdof.jpg

     

    In the middle there is extra steel reinforcements on which we can attach the foot of the case.

     

    PB050698_zpstmhuoe6q.jpg

     

    The cable has to go through the frame so there will be a rectangular hole in the profile so it will fit through nicely!

    PB060708_zpsoxjxuf9g.jpg

     

    PB060709_zpsxb30nqis.jpg

     

    Normally we solder stuff together in stead on welding. Welding something together is no problem, but I doubt that it will win in a ‘beautiful-welds-contest' ;) ! Luckily it will look nice afterwards.


  16. Well it looks more appealing than expected. I like that the ligth is mostly comming from the edge of the acrillic sheets and they are otherwise black.

    But I thing the design is highly focused on the looks and less to the useabillity.

    How many days it looks nice before you have to clean it from dust again? Two weeks? ;)

    And all noice produced by the pump, fans and coils is directly distrubuted into the room. No dampening by the case at all.

    I know it's a showcase build so ut's not important, but who is going to use this PC?

     

    Thanks! Yes I was very thrilled with the final result of the LED showing on the edges of the acrylic!

    I agree with you, this is a pure showcase and it is....all about the looks ;) !

    If it would be used, it would likely be at a booth on display with loud music playing so no one will hear the pump haha!

    I already have my own PC so I still have to decide what to do with this one, maybe I will use it in my new office ;) !

     

    Maybe eventually. I have a 6 core sandy bridge i7, and it is an absolute beast on multithreaded workloads. But I usually game. I am thinking about upgrading to a newer cpu, but that costs money.

     

    Yes I can imagine! It always costs a LOT of money, too bad, it is a very expensive hobby ;)


  17. Really amazing, great build!

     

    Thanks Necrodead! Glad you like it :D !

     

    Wow, it looks awesome! The full cover waterblock has me drooling... I wish I had a full cover block, but my board is too old...

     

    Thank you! Yes the full cover waterblock is really spectacular, although it covers up most of the motherboard. Well maybe when you update your hardware you can use a full cover block :)

    SO here are the final pictures (finally ;) )!
    You have probably already seen them in the short movie clip above, but anyway a buildlog has to end with final picture photos (otherwise it isn't a buildlog ;) )
     
    I choose "Tron"blue for these pictures! Ofcourse it is RGB so you could use any colour you would like this particular one fits really well!

    My computer is a "black box" made of 40kg extruded aluminium heat sinks. It is passive cooled, so the design is dictated by the cooling. But that doesn't mean it has to be awful ;)

     

    I like discreet PCs more than the ones you need sunnglases and headphones when using them, because they are covered with LEDs and super loud. That's why I still prefere FLUX over all your builds, despite all of them are executed with a lot of skill.

     

    I don't post a pictures of my build here, it's your build log. But you find my one here: http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/351134-finished-the-silent-cube-pushing-passive-cooling-to-the-limit-with-dual-gtx-980-update-17-pictures/

    I just finished it yesterday after full 6 month of working on the build and >>100 hours spent.

     

    Cool! I always like when the design is a result of how something works!

    I hadn't checked out your buildlog yet and I love it that it is so detailed!

    You can see you put a LOT of effort and work in it!

     

    And on with the buildlog!
    Ive made another video about the making of the Identity Disks :)
     
     
    We've ordered some fancy screws, stainless steel with safety torx!

  20. That looks verry nice, subbed for the rest of the build[emoji106]

    En dan toch verbaast het me, zoveel mensen die dit doen wonen ver weg.. Maar dan kom je er een uit eigen land tegen die iets geweldigs maakt. Ga zo door[emoji106]

     

    Thanks! Hope you will like the remaining updates as well :) !

     

    Haha zo grappig dat je ineens nederlanders tegenkomt op het forum ;) ! Die zijn ook echt OVERAL :D ! Dankjewel voor het mooie compliment!

     

     

    Hi F.A.T.

     

    With the controller you used it is easy to make the LED responsive to temperature. And ther are also CPU waterblocks with LEDs that are also responsive to the temperature to match the build.

    But the possibillities are endless, only your imagination is the limit. Personally I use peltier elements as a thermoelectric generator to generate power for the LEDs I use. The hotter the GPU the brighter the LED. And I get light "for free".

    If you need help with an elecetronic circuit for a future build you can PM me.

     

    Hi Stefan!! :D

    I will definitely keep that in mind! Sounds really interesting and i think it look really good when you have a "gimmick" like that :D!

    What does your computer look like? Did you mod your case?

    Thanks for the advice :) !!
