    December Project - unnamed

    By the way, most of these progress updates have also been showed off on my Instagram, if interested then there is more to show in there, I only collect and do a bigger update here when I feel there is something interesting enough to show https://www.instagram.com/_at0mac_/

    December Project - unnamed

    I still have not given up on this project, it just takes quite a while, mainly because a lot of it is disassemble, paint/mod, assemble - and that alone takes tons of time... Beside that there is still a job to deal with, a family and some stuff because we own a house, so everything takes time. I think its about time you guys get a proper update. One of the things I have done, is to disassemble one of the graphics cards and change thermal pads - and that alone was surely about time! The blue ones are the new ones, I switched out one pad before I took the picture, oops. This graphics card is pretty insane... MATRIX-HD7970-P-3GD5. Disassembled and its build like a tank! No matter all the work, it was sure worth it. By the way, I still dont know if any of the hardware is faulty. But I have taken the chance and installed the best old-school CPU I have laying around, I just hope the BIOS can handle it without a BIOS flash. I even lapped it as it was not really equally flat in all corners. I guess my luck with hardware is greater than most, have not really been measuring a lot in this build, I just wing it, and see here how close it was that the CPU block would not fit, damn. Seriously, there is 1mm of space! It is after all an AIO, så the tank is build into the rad, but it was too boring. The build is car inspired, so I have wrapped the rad in gold heat shield like you do with engine parts on track cars. I dont know when next update will come, by now this build is more art than practical, so its even a surprise to me if it actually runs when I first time turn it on... but honestly, at this point I dont really care if it dont, its just pretty to look at. See ya!

    December Project - unnamed

    Almost made it possible in December, but not fully finished. Hit a few roadblocks on the way and now the family is back home from their long holliday, so im again workerant, houseowner, family dad and husband - bit of a puzzle to be modder on the side, so I will return with more progress whenever possible. Its not like I actually need this pc, this build is purely because I can sort of thing... See ya'!

    December Project - unnamed

    20. December Spoiled my moods by getting a bike stolen. 21. December Got introduced to the game Ring of Elysium and ended up playing it for pretty close to all day with friends getting a good amount of wins. 22. December Last christmas shopping done 23. December Picked up a free christmas tree, wrapped presents and a lot more 24. December Pleased with I named this thread December project, and not christmas project. Everything did not go as planned, but the month is not over so I might actually still be able to turn it on before new year. Taking a small christmas break with family, so no work will be done the coming days, but Ill be back later with more mods. Merry Christmas

    17. December Have started to fabricate the new top panel. Have come a little to a standstill as I think its about time I take my painting seriously and need to find a face mask with a good filter. Had quite the headache yesterday so that was not much fun. Not sure when next update will be, as im a bit dependant on the mask for now. But we are not far from the goal so stay tuned

    building my first pc

    Yes the build looks fine, but like stated, the odd part is your cooler. H60 is pretty old, little on tbe smaller side, and to really get that cpu going you want a better way of cooling it. If its a budget issue then look for 650w psu instead and figure out a way to use the saving on better cooling. Psu is the only part in your list i would downgrade slightly and not loose performance
  10. Not long ago a friend of mines PC was going on and off totally random, i went to do the big inspection and found out a tiny drop of thermal paste had gone down the side and was touching 2 pins on his cpu. As the paste was arctic silver it is electrically conductive, so cleaned it off and swapped it for a smaller amount of a non conductive paste, just to be sure. Maybe you have the same issue.

    16. December Started the day by laying down some "pipes", only 1 leak so not so much drama. Have I by the way said im using UV lights? Also been playing with my toy car, its not the correct blue hue, so am changing it up a little Follow along tomorrow for more mods

    About the picture quality for now, I try to make them appropriate for the time period about 2010-2013 when this hardware was new. I was a Mac user back then, so there is a gap in my hardware knowledge this build is going to fill out. Its only the past 3-4 years I have been back to PCs where I belong.

    15. December I see now I can actually not totally finish it before christmas, some of the last details are getting a little stuck in the post, so will not arrive until late december or in the new year. Damn it... But never mind, I will still be able to turn it on long before that, it will just not look totally as pretty as I wanted it to. Anyway, I have done some good work today.g. I started the day by bending some alu plates for a psu shroud, never done it before but i guess it turned out ok. I have mounted 2 of the 3 radiators I have mounted motherboard and one of the grapics cards, plus I have screwed on the super nice silver barb fittings If anything then this is actual old school to use barbed silver fittings. Also, I have cleaned the chrome front panel so it looks pretty damn nice imo... The real carbon fiber plate give it that extra magic and really makes it stand out. Not sure if I will have so much time tomorrow, I have a ton of things to do before its soon to be christmas, but lets see if there will not be a minor update

    PSU good enough for build?

    like i said, as far as i remember the CX550 is a quality wise pretty good psu so I would stick to that. quality is key when talking about psu, they last longer and give more reliable power without noise and whine

    PSU good enough for build?

    you already have it? i can see the Q300 I used in my friends build cost just 4-5$ more but seems to have both little better airflow and simpler layout. ofc its a matter of taste, just think you should know
