Recommended Posts

Yeah... I kinda forgot this log, again... :unsure: But the good news is, I've been working on the case to get if finished.

Stuff I did since last update:

- Made backplates for both of the videocards
- Both videocards were modded and now have solid copper rods, instead of the normal 2x6 pin connectors.
- Finised the wiring behind mobo tray
- Installed & wired leds in top and front
- Finished paintwork (right sidepanel)
- Made and sleeved 24-pin extension
- Finished and filled the loop

Basicly the build was finished a couple of weeks ago and I made the final pics last week. So without further ado, here are the final pics!

That looks amazing, only thing I think doesn't fit to well into the build is the 2 air cooled GPUs. Would have been awesome to see those watercooled. But even with them being air cooled.. it's freaking amazing! Well done! The red paint really does look amazing! ;)

Thanks!  Agreed it would have been cooler to add them to the loop too, but since they're not the newest cards anymore and my budget for the build was running low I decided to keep em aircooled.

 

You having amazing skills. Such a beautiful build!

 

 

It's too much to handle. SO GOOD.

 

 

Well done!

 

 

I love it, personally I would have painted the zdmods on the side panel red also.

 

 

Thanks guys, much appreciated :)

Thanks Alex, you can do this aslong as the copper used has the right diameter and is insulated properly :)

Thanks Omid :)

 

Fonzie: The EPS connector on the mobo only needs 12v and 0. What I did is combine the 4 wires for each voltage into 2 copper rods (1 for 12v and one for 0v) and connected it to the EPS connector. On the other side they're attached to the PSU.

Thanks D33g33 :)

Did the same to the GPU's but instead of making a connector I've soldered the copper rods directly to the GPU's :)

Not the best soldering job, but it works. The rods were sleeved with Paracord and routed to the back of the mobotray, where they connect to normal wiring to the PSU :)

It looks so tidy! Quick question, as long as the voltages read right the length of the cable to the GPUs shouldn't matter right? I'm looking at having really short runs (40-60cm) from the PSU to the graphics card. Once again really nice work!

Beautiful beautiful work. Is it possible to show how the bottom tier is setup? Monitor connections?


I dream of 0s and 1s folding to my every command,

algorithms seeping from the back of my head when I need them.
