  1. New Build is finally going... somewhat.
  2. Ωhmbreon

    Eagle Box

    I'm finally thinking about making a custom case for my next computer again. It's going to be an ITX case with an emphasis on slimness while keeping room for enough cooling for high-performance parts. The parts list is continually changing but the design has already gone through many iterations. Back Top Front
  3. Actually, I am getting rid of this project. But! I'm replacing it with a stainless steel slim mATX scratch-built case to build. The CAD design is nearly finished at this point. I'll post a link to it in a little bit as well as an explanation.
  4. I will be switching from a .50 caliber to a fat .50 caliber ammo can to give me extra room. As much I I'd like a 7 liter box of power, I need the extra room for a beefier power supply and extra cooling capacity. I would like to be able to overclock the heck out of it too, and just 500 watts from a Flex ATX power supply was not enough. If Zen 2 and Navi are somehow uber power efficient, if they are good at all, then I might stick with the original design.
  5. Due to me underestimating the complexity of some ongoing projects and unexpected obligations, I have delay the project. I'm not sure how long it will be delayed for, but I was hoping to start it in May but that does not seem to be the case. My fault for trying to have four projects going at once. I will be able to work on it in the summer since I can have access to a waterjet cutter and a mig welder. Overall, I've chosen out a couple parts, which are still subject to change, and I've made minor tweaks to the design for better cable routing and structural integrity. If you're wondering what the other three projects I was trying to do at the same time were, they are a steel RGB lamp, giant steel model plane, and a turbojet, and they got complicated fast.
  6. It's not. I'm keeping all the stuff in the can, including fans. I have with the previous one as well. That one looks really old too, the lighting isn't even led.
  7. This project may not go anywhere for some time, as I have a couple other projects going on currently, and I need to finish them. I'm still working on the paper version and looking for water-cooling parts. Oh and also a reminder that these designs are mine. You can use them for yourself but not for commercial use without my permission.
  8. I still can't believe how fast storage technology has improved. Have some old hard drives from 2002.
  9. This is the ammo can I'm going to use. It has thinner walls but they are straighter and the lid takes less force to close. Yeah it's a bad picture but I have no power at the moment so I can't really see.
  10. It's just Sketchup. The parts in there are from the "warehouse" while I made the case and put those parts in.
  11. Here's some pictures of what's (most likely) the final design. It's significantly more simple than the last one.
  12. If you guys want more, I'm building a second revision. Same size ammo can but it's gonna have a liquid cooling loop in it and room for a triple slot graphics card.
  13. I'm just using the standard .50 caliber. I've done one before, it's just not as pretty:
  14. It's coming back and it's gong to be better than ever before. Some new features of this one will be: - Aesthetics - RGB - Water cooling (CPU only) - Support for a triple slot GPU - BETTER PARTS, no more low power i5s or budget graphics cards This is going to become my next system, so most likely it will be completed sometime over the summer since I am not quite ready to part with my main system yet. (Plus I'm kinda waiting to see how the power efficiency of next-gem processors stacks up). Parts will be (so far): - ITX motherboard - Triple slot GPU - Flex ATX power supply - Thicc 92mm radiator It is still relatively early stage, but I am working on a design, which is now in it's second layout, and should be completed shortly.
  15. My, oh my have I been lazy with this build log... but not with the build. It is done! I'll try to go through what I did. I test fitted the internal structure with some of the parts in, and after some adjustments with the motherboard I/O, power supply support/brace thing and part of an air duct, I coated everything black with a nice layer of Plastidip. Then I pretty much fit everything in right away, these are the specs: CPU: Pentium G4400 Cooler: Stock Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-H110N RAM: 1x8GB Corsair Vengeance 2400MHz GPU: EVGA GTX 750 Ti SC 2GB +163 Core +553 Memory PSU: Apevia SFX Power Series 300W SSD: Inland Basic Professional 128GB M.2 HDD: Toshiba 500GB 5400RPM Fans: 3x 50mmx15mm fans i forget the name of that are really loud and spin at 6500RPM I was so happy with the result, despite being a bit rough around the edges. I was less happy with the performance, despite expecting it. The bottleneck was the processor, leaving the GPU only 80% utilized, which was surprising. I thought the G4400 would be better. It made me want something more powerful, maybe with four cores instead of just two. I also wanted a blower-style gpu, as that is what the case was designed to use. Cheapness was thrown out the window.... I found an RX 570 4GB reference and an i5-6600T. I got the 6600T because I wanted something that used as little power as possible and left a lot for the gpu. I don't really want to test the limits of the power supply more than I am. Looking for a heatsink, I found the Arctic Alpine 12 Passive, which was not what I was looking for, but I decided to give it a try. The graphics card was a huge problem at first. I had to flash the bios since it was refusing to accept the drivers and said it was a "Microsoft Basic Display Adapter" Comically, it also said it was always at 100% load at 0 degrees C, and that the VRM efficiency was 185% while is was using upwards of 15,000,000 watts. Even after flashing the bios, it refused the drivers for quite some time until I went back to 18.7.1 drivers. After that, it refused to run at stock speeds. It was running around 1050MHz instead of 1264. This could be fixed by pushing the power limit to +50%, but it increased power consumption farther than I wanted, 170 watts instead of 120 watts. I settled for +25% power, where it seems to sit around 1150MHz. I also got an easy overclock of +250MHz on the memory, which made up for the losses from the underperforming core. The passive heatsink works reasonably well on the processor at full synthetic load, reading a max temperature of 84 degrees, but it only sits at 50 degrees in games. The GPU is louder than a jet if it gets to 80 degrees due to my fan curve, but sits at 73 normally and the noise is bearable. And there we go. The Ammo Can PC. Not the prettiest but it's good enough. It needs a name so I called it Bunker Box. Yea never mind, I and everyone else I know just calls it the Ammo Can.
