  1. Thank you everyone for the advice and support throughout the entire process. This being my first build log on a forum, I had more fun than I expected thanks to such a great community! With the reveal out now, enjoy some final photos! http://i.imgur.com/AATvQNmh.jpg http://i.imgur.com/8b8rZBTh.jpg http://i.imgur.com/LnLjab7h.jpg http://i.imgur.com/GpNLfObh.jpg http://i.imgur.com/5nINEqih.jpg http://i.imgur.com/fxWnQcsh.jpg http://i.imgur.com/UYlLkRDh.jpg http://i.imgur.com/9t2Cmaeh.jpg http://i.imgur.com/zF7W746h.jpg http://i.imgur.com/et8M3aoh.jpg
  2. Hey all. I have been tied up with some moving, travel, excuses, excuses... but it has finally come time to wrap this project! I know many of you were excited to see my dad's reaction to the gift. I know I was out of my mind excited to finally show it to him after all these months! My good friend asked to do the video so check it out below! https://youtu.be/6jQT4zbmUBs
  3. I used a Krylon "Foil" paint. Only complaint is it did take a week to harden to a point where I couldn't leave a fingerprint when I grabbed it
  4. 3D Printed You asking if it is machined aluminum makes me so happy!
  5. The remaining pieces of hardware are installed such as the CoolerMaster Master fan Pro 140, that I am using for the upper air intake. The last tasks were setting up the colors for the RGB, setting up Windows and other stuff on the computer for my dad, and doing a little more "testing" (gaming haha). Also, this is the last update! The next posts will be some video content and (many) final photos. I am beyond excited to share the build and my dad's reaction with you all!
  6. Thank you gamer! Thanks for following along! It is hilarious and surprising that of all switch types to be yoinked from the garbage, it was this type
  7. Thank you! I'm loving it too Thanks for following! Maybe not on this build but that is a great idea!!
  8. Fun detail update! I needed to embrace the radiator in the grill more by designing an additional feature. Radiator cap! I designed a cap to fit the scale of the radiator and the angle it was mounted at. 3D printed, sanded, painted, and finally made a couple vinyl stickers to look like a classic caution (and of course a signature). More shots of this to come!
  9. He knows I am building him a computer but not the style/design/color/hardware/etc. I asked about some things he wanted/needed in a computer and then just went from there!
  10. Little update with some small modding of my first NVMe I've ever used which is pretty fun! I wanted to put a heat sink on the 500GB, Samsung 970 EVO NVMe cause it looked kinda boring. I bought a very cheap heatsink that had a nice grill look that I knew would match the build style well. I put it on the drive to test the fit and make sure it was all good first. That all went great and I only dropped the tiny screw like 14 times haha I then took it back apart and using fine sandpaper and some water, sanded the black anodizing from the top o
  11. Your killing me with the feels man! Thank you thank you so much for the support and kind words. I know my dad is going to be super blown away and I can't wait to unveil it!
  12. All I could see in that dumpster was a beautiful button that needed help haha It is so much fun when you get to give something a second life too!
  13. Thanks so much! It is better that I don't know how many hours are invested There are a couple zeros at the end of the number though for sure at this point.
  14. It's time for some wiring! First up is the sata cables for the SSD and laptop optical drive. I also needed a slimline sata power cable for that ultra-slim laptop optical drive. I've never seen these before so I just picked an adapter up from a local computer store that I could modify and picked up two 36" sata cables also from there that I needed. Only needed like 22" but that is the way it goes sometimes. I cut the adapter in half since I only needed the slimline sata power. I just used a razor blade and it cut through easily. I then tested to make sure it plugged in
