    HCP got a reaction from Anthony_95 in D-WAVE X2 Quantum computer - scratch build   
    Mounted and painted.
    Found another motherboard, AMD E35M1 with passive cooling, worked good. Been running it under load for a day in the case just to be sure the cooling is enough.
     

     
    Bought a SSD-DOM unit, 16GB is enough for my Linux system.
     

     
    And a collection of some pictures on the desk.

    Made a simple drive bay to hold the three hdd´s.
    Could be made better but didnt see why, it´s the outside of this puppy thats cool
     

     
    And it is removable, for easy access to other parts.
     

     
    Bottom fan and case feets mounted
     

     
     
    Close up of the case feets
     

     
    Now its time for some sanding and paint/wrap of the bottom part.

    A smaller update today
     
    Made the floor (left) and the back (right) and put a 140mm fan in the floor and a 120 in the back.
    Probably do 2x120 in the roof too, not sure yet, or a single 140 there too.
     
    Made a mistake with the IO-cutout, internal floor will be 30mm up from the bottom, forgot to add that to the back. Not visible later when painted and wrapped.
     

     
    Front and side pieces glued.

    First mistake...
    I cut out the D-Wave logo in a piece of flat black vinyl, and had a idea of mounting a LED behind the panel to light it up.
     
    But.. got it on off-centre in both directions...
    Back to the cutting machine again
     
    The black paint is only for the spacing between all small panels, the panels themselves will be wrapped in vinyl to get a easy surface without painting and sanding.
     
    Here is how it looks in front of my desk light.
    Some light coming trough, will isolate the logo on the back some more.
     

     
    And without a light behind it.
     

     
    Not much of progress to show today, i have mostly put time into the bottom and designing all parts holding the motherboard and drives inside the case and thinking of a way to open the case to change parts and whatnot.

    You who seen me before know that i´m soft for supercomputers and have begun to do alot of scratchbuilds.
     
    When i saw a article about D-Wave X2 i fell in love, how cool is this.
     
    Instantly i started to gather information about the X2 and planning it out in Sketchup to get a grasp of what size is needed for my replica.
     

     
    To be aesthetically appealing, i have made some changes.
    - Racks in front of the chamber not in my replica
    - Rear panels are moved to the front side, where the racks were.
     
    Hardware
    Gigabyte GA-Z97N ITX motherboard
    Intel G3258 CPU
    2x4gb Corsair Vengeance memory
    Cooler Master 120V cooler
    Samsung 840 120GB EVO OS-drive
    3x4TB drives
     
    All panels cut, gluing them to a 2mm acrylic piece to make up the walls.
    Wanted to keep the glue from oozing out in the spacing between all small pieces, worked good. Looks awful - right now
     

     
     
    Side and front panel cut and glued
     

     
    See ya in the next update!

    Hehe, would be crazy, but i really want a computer on the insides so no space for it.
    But your idea made me make a decal cutout for the front piece, i´ll see later if i use it or not
    This one, a silhouette of the inside CPU and cooling part of the X2
