  1. 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.
  2. More updates 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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 sho
  5. 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
  6. hehe yeah i read that too somewhere when doing research, but the D-Wave is recognized by it, so it was easier to put in the info than explaining why its not. And the G3258 cpu i´m using is a light year away from being close to running any Quantum algorithms. I´m happy its a kind of super computer, and a cool looking one
  7. 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.

  8. Haha, i had a idea of that, but the case is a low budget one and it would probably scratch alot below the white. So i stuck with the white effect on the edges of the case window
  9. I did his mod with the canon-strap and the rubber-string he did on his carry-on bag, but i couldnt do it without a penny-board, so i had to buy one just to get the complete theme I just tried to catch many of his own mods, into a computer case
  10. What? If you are into vlogging and Youtube you may already know Casey Neistat, one of the bigger Youtubers right now and growing fast. He is a awsome film maker and DIY guy, check him out! -> https://www.youtube.com/user/caseyneistat Casey got my attention a couple of month ago with his hacking, customizations and other solutions to every day problems, in his style. Why? So, one day when i was thinking of a theme for my next mod i decided to do a Casey Neistat themed computer build, fetching some of his creations into the case. Not sure why i´m doing this, just a fun thing a
  11. Some accent color inside the case too. Not sure yet if the memory should get the same color, or just paint them black. Current status
  12. I bought one just to check the case out, and i got stuck. (Some of you do know i work at Bitfenix, i use other brands too ) So i was thinking, i need a small workstation and this was perfect. Found a Gigabyte Z97n-wifi itx board from earlier projects and a 4690k CPU. Other hardware includes a Corsair H100i, 8gb of Corsair Vengeance memory, 256gb Kingston SSD and 2x3TB regular 3,5" drives. I can never buy a case, unbox it and start to use it. I need to make it mine, in a small or big way. And i was roaming colors on the forums and found most cases are black, white, red or blue in ge
  13. A mini update. The first half is done, made a jig to glue all parts the same angles. And, the parts are only glued, no finish work done! Now to the fun part, glue 63 more parts together + supports
  14. Thats only one panel of the case, it has 120 panels on the outside I think it will be around a mATX case, maybe a small ATX case. 500mm high, 520mm deep and 260mm wide.
  15. I only took the outer shape from the Tristellar case, not the case itself.
