  1. I had two open a while ago, changed to some nicer tubing. They have barbs as you suspected
  2. Got a few nice pics from Computex and some that Asus took. Thought i would share them with you aswell. NordicHardware also made a nice video of it. It's in Swedish so it might not be for all of you :) Thx to Richard for the photos at Computex! Video: That's all for now :)
  3. Thx for the comments guys! Been very busy renovating my house so don't have much time on the computer anymore
  4. Back with another update! Deadline got shortened a bit so i didn't have time to do any updates, but on the upside i can finish the build log now. After trying a quick assembly i realized that the suspension and tires were too soft. I filled the "hollow" tires with some stiff foam and upgraded the springs with some "heavy" duty ones i found in the shops. Now it sits straight and no flat tires. Made a bracket for the PSU, a bit rough looking but cleaning all bits at once when i know everything fits. Time to make the PSU shroud/Radiator holder Milled some slots and some grooves for easier bending A bit of bending Turned out pretty good Next up is to drill holes and tap the sides of the aluminum frame. Decided to make a template of lexan so i could drill all holes quickly and get them perfectly in the middle. After a lot of cleaning it was time to powder coat all the aluminum. Just love the black texture on the parts. Cabin painted (sorry for the crappy photo) Let the assembly begin! Sanded the acrylic with 1200grit paper. Didn't want it completely see through and i didn't wanna see the scratches, turned out ok Tail lights installed IO panel test fit Forgot to take pictures on painting the gpu but here it is in all its glory (titan black) I found three M3 holes on the back of the GPU, so it was easy to make a bracket for it so it hovers over the motherboard. Sneaky gf Not much left now Everything fits nicely, Only one dvi port that's not really usable. I only ever use one monitor so not really an issue. I didn't wanna raise the whole structure just for the dvi port. Lights working Running nice and cool Had to take it outside If you happen to be at Computex be sure to check it out over at Asus! Thx for looking!
  5. Back with another update, Hardware for the mod: - X99 Sabranco motherboard - Intel I7 5960X - Titan black - 8 x 8Gb DDR4 2400Mhz Dominator Platinum Ram - H80i GT watercooler - Neutron GTX 240GB SSD - SP120 PWM Quiet fans - RM 650 PSU -Corsair sleeved cable kit First some hardware pics (Sorry for the bad photos, have great camera but not very good at using it) Think most of the pics speak for themselves but i have to say i really like the corsair water cooler. Last but not least, def my favorite ram! (It just arrived so that's why its not in the first picture) On to some modding! Assembled all the pieces i milled and did a quick test to see if even the motherboard would fit Motherboard plate The mill was too small so had to mill it and turn it around and mill again. Someone did a great job gluing this together, decided it was safer to cut it rather than trying to pry it apart Made som support bars for the underside of the truck bed, just for show All assembled A quick test fit After the quick test fit i wasn't very happy. The overhang was just too much and it did not look like it was meant to be there. So i decided to make some small changes. Stripping everything off. Decided to cut the frame and extend it with 50mm. Milled some brackets that mounts flush with the frame Much better Everything is still very rough but want to be sure everything is right before i start cleaning up all the parts. Next update in a few days!
  6. Cheers! Thx! I hope it will be :) lol, awesome! yeah, they are pretty cool. It's quite hard to fit a full size atx in an rc car so there are not many options out there. Also when it had to be a military vehicle the choices were even less. If you build in an RV you need to have a whole family with computers, like atx and itx :D
  7. Hey everyone, I'm back with a new build. I'm making a companion for the Sabranco humvee. It will be a fast build as it needs to be finished by 22nd of May. As soon as it is done it will be joining the Humvee at Computex 2015. As parts arrive i will let you know what the specs will be. But i want to give a huge thank you to Corsair Johan and the people over at Asus (won't name you but you know who you are ;)) for believing in this project. I got myself a GoPro camera and will be doing a complete time lapse video of the entire build. I hope to add every bit separately as the build moves forward The concept. A very rough render of what it will look like. Have made some small changes but nothing too big. The Truck at Asus HQ First step to drill some holes in the 6mm aluminum sheet so i can fasten it on the bed of the mill. Wish i had made my mill a bit bigger. Sheet fastened Ready to roll Turned out pretty could, some tiny marks on the alu but will be easy to sand away Over to the acrylic Next update in a couple of days, Alex
  8. A video from CES about my mod and Darthbevis mod, check it out if you are interested! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZSF2PxVcaPk
  9. lol, toby said he has a whole box of the SOB tools :D No i haven't, when it gets back and i get it drivable i might make a video :) There is on short youtube video of the hummer made by Asus, will share that tomorrow!
  10. Hey guys, got this from my boss today. Thought it was too funny not to post, couldn't really figure out if it belongs here or not but there are plenty of useful tools here. (Remove if it doesn't belong here) TOOLS AND HOW TO USE THEM SKILL SAW: A portable cutting tool used to make boards too short. BELT SANDER: An electric sanding tool commonly used to convert minortouch-up jobs into major refinishing jobs. WIRE WHEEL: Cleans paint off bolts and then throws them somewhere under the workbenchwith the speed of light. Also removes fingerprints and hard-earned callusesfrom fingers in about the time it takes you to say, 'Oh Poopadilly'. DRILL PRESS: A tall upright machine useful for suddenly snatching flat metal bar stockout of your hands so that it smacks you in the chest and flings your beeracross the room, denting the freshly-painted project which youhad carefully set in the corner where nothing could get to it. Channel Locks: Used to round off bolt heads. Sometimes used in the creation of blood-blisters. HACKSAW: One of a family of cutting tools built on the Ouija board principle...It transforms human energy into a crooked, unpredictable motion,and the more you attempt to influence its course,the more dismal your future becomes. VISE-GRIPS: Generally used after pliers to completely round off bolt heads.If nothing else is available, they can also be used to transferintense welding heat to the palm of your hand. OXYACETYLENE TORCH: Used almost entirely for igniting variousflammable objects in your shop and creating a fire.Also handy for igniting the grease inside the wheelhub out of which you want to remove a bearing race. TABLE SAW: A large stationary power tool commonly used to launchwood projectiles for testing wall integrity.Very effective for digit removal !! HYDRAULIC FLOOR JACK: Used for lowering an automobile to the ground afteryou have installed your new brake shoes,trapping the jack handle firmly under the bumper. BAND SAW:A large stationary power saw primarily usedby most shops to cut large pieces into smaller piecesthat more easily fit into the trash after you cut onthe inside of the line instead of the outside edge. TWO-TON ENGINE HOIST: A tool for testing the maximum tensile strengthof all the Poopadilly you forgot to disconnect. PHILLIPS SCREWDRIVER: Normally used to stab the vacuum seals under lidsor for opening old-style paper-and-tin oil cans andsplashing oil on your shirt; but can also be used,as the name implies, to strip out Phillips screw heads. STRAIGHT SCREWDRIVER: A tool for opening paint cans. Sometimes used toconvert common slotted screws into non-removablescrews and butchering your palms. PRY BAR: A tool used to crumple the metal surrounding that clipor bracket you needed to remove in order to replace a 50 cent part. HAMMER: Originally employed as a weapon of war,the hammer nowadays is used as a kind of divining rodto locate the most expensive parts adjacentto the object we are trying to hit. UTILITY KNIFE: Used to open and slice through the contents of cardboard cartonsdelivered to your front door. Works particularly wellon contents such as seats, vinyl records,liquids in plastic bottles, collector magazines, refund checks,and rubber or plastic parts. Especially useful for slicingwork clothes, but only while in use. And lastly …….. SON OF A B*TCH TOOL: Any handy tool that you grab and throw acrossthe garage while yelling 'Son of a b*tch'at the top of your lungs. It is also,most often, the next tool that you will need.
  11. maybe its just you toby who are not allowed to collect :D
  12. lol, good idea :) I usually drill some extra holes to fasten it with screws. But sometimes there is just not enough holes
