  1. Project: Infinity

    Hello, I present to you the Infinity, a personal project that is under development. The project is already in progress for several months and have i’ve done regular updates on various places on the web, I decided to enter here too ;) Thanks to all those who have supported this project with a special thanks to my Father. Always been a goal for me to have a real computer (situations in life like school and work sometimes make choices in laptops). The purpose of this machine, it’s not just gaming, i will use in video and 3D renderings, and of course terms of photography (some already know what is "my thing"). Also want to add that it is my first project, and it really have much value to me, few understand this value. Hardware: Case: NZXT H440 (White) Processor /CPU/: AMD FX 8350 Unlocked Graphics /GPU/: Asus Nvidia Geforce GTX 780 DirectCU II OC Motherboard: MSI 990FXA-GD80 RAM: G-Skill Ripjaws 2x8Gb (16Gb) @1833 Mhz Power Supply /PSU/: Corsair RM850 SSD: Crucial MX100 256Gb HDD: Seagate Barracuda 3Tb WaterCooling: Water/additives: Water: Tudor Bi demineralized Color: Mayhems Dye Dark Blue 15ml Biocide: Mayhems Biocide 10ml Anti-Corrosive: AntiCorro-Fluid 50ml Bomb: Alphacool VPP655 - T12 Bomb Top: Alphacool HF D5 TOP - Plexi G1/4 Reservoir: Alphacool Cape Corp Coolplex Pro 15 LT Radiator: Alphacool NexXxoS ST30 Full Copper 360mm Tube: Masterkleer tubing PVC 16/10mm (3/8"ID) clear Fans: 3x Noiseblocker NB-eLoop B12-3 Bionic fan 1900rpm CPU Block: EK Water Blocks EK-Supremacy EVO - Nickel GPU Block: EK Water Blocks EK-FC780 GTX Ti DCII - Nickel Backplate: Feita em acrílico e personalizada (updates em breve) Fittings: Monsoon 16/10mm (ID 3/8" OD 5/8") compression fitting's Monsoon 16/10mm (OD 5/8") Rotary 45° - White Monsoon 16/10mm (OD 5/8") Rotary 90° - White Monsoon screw plug G1/4 - White T-piece inner thread G1/4 - compact – knurled - MSV I took several pictures of the water cooling products, the objective is to see in more detail and also what brings in the boxes. Since they are 96 photos i cant post here on the forum :( This LINK is an album with all the photos mentioned in my official facebook page. Peripherals: Monitor: Benq XL2420T 3D Speaker's: Harman Kardon SoundSticks III Mouse: Razer Lanchesis 5600 Dpi's Keyboard: Steelseries Apex UPS: APC Back-UPS CS 650 Webcam: Logitech C920 [ Gamepad's: Microsoft XBOX 360 (PC) Extras: LED's Light's: NZXT Sleeved LED kit 2m (24 white LED's) Sleeves: MDPC-X (grand bleu+ white-x+ black) Cable Combs: E22 Clear (24; 8; 6) Card Reader: TRANSCEND USB 3.0 MultiCard Reader The choice of components and peripherals was not easy! The objective was a harmony between performance/quality and price. Some of the peripherals i acquired over time and due to its good state of preservation and functionality, until they prove otherwise they will continue in service! Yes, I know, I challenged many odds and divide opinions, i always have the last word and the final decision. I feel that I did my decisions well and I can say that everything is in harmony as tested after the assembly, using the term "no fan boy" machine was also created to show that you don't need follow the "manual"/"opinions" and create a machine with one or even two reference marks, i've created this machine with a variety of brands and, believe it is a pleasure saying that at the end of all the research work of compatibility between parts everything works! Challenges: Undoubtedly a major challenge was the sleeving of the cables, despite having been advised to buy extensions, i wanted to do "by hand" a complete sleeving on the original psu cables. An adventure, which is risky and most often does not pay. Let me explain, if you have experience in this area, and you have done sleeving already and have the necessary materials, go for it! You can create something unique and personalize your way, and you can even save a few $ . Speaking from my experience in this field, i've never done sleeving, I saw some videos on YouTube, but thats not enough! Each case is different, and I can tell you that it takes experience to do things correctly is a challenge I am willing to help others to overcome some barriers that I had. I bought the sleeves in MPDPC X-site, are of good quality. Right now, I have the following cables sleeved CPU (8pin); Motherboard (24pin); GPU (8 + 6pin) by me, i also have more thats comes already sleeved (LED’s; Fans). The first cable that i started was the CPU and as I said the experience was still not much, so it was not as perfect as I wanted, but i can re-do ;) General advice: Check (and check again) that you have everything you need; is very important do a very good mapping of the pins of the connectors before removing. Another challenge was the cable management. After several suggestions and opinions like: velcro; cable ties and etc … Then i found a better way, check the photos bellow ;) LEGO Modding: LEGO marked my life in a special way and have a meaning for me, in terms of this project, don't you agree with me when I describe how LEGO is timeless and functional while keeping the simple design !? The harmony between the LEGO and the system is unique and very functional, making the ability to make different look’s. I order the LEGO baseplates (white color) in the bricklink website, and believe me now is easier to find ;) The baseplates arrived, then i proceed to cut them. It is not easy to cut these baseplates, i suggest a sharp x-acto. I hold the baseplates to the case with a strong double sided tape (thanks Sergio Lima for providing the tape). The photo bellow show the hole i made in the case to drain the loop, its the lowest point on the case ;) A view from the two areas with LEGO's. This is the Showboard zone. (FUN SHOT) Ive got awesome minifigures (FUN SHOT) Polar bear want a piece of Infinity. (FUN SHOT) Inception, a laptop inside a desktop. LEGO LED holders This is just an example of a simple way using LEGO's to make a baseplate in horizontal. (FUN SHOT) Too fat ?! My GPU can hold LED's in the Showboad area. LEGO's selected to use in the box, all within in the color scheme. The Showboard The objective is to show something customized by printing on vinyl. Below there are photos showing the dimensions (with margins), and a photo that only serves to realize the place in question and the proportions (let me make clear that they are not final photographs from the project with the quality that I intend to). I already made some awesome design’s ;) PS: I want to remind everyone that Showboard is modular and uses LEGO to hold on the baseplate that remains behind the Showboard! And I do not want in any way minimize the importance of LEGO in my project! Dimensions / Print Margins: More real perspective through some photos: A simple behind the scene: Initial photos of the project and mounting hardware: Mounting hardware date: 28 June 2014 Water Cooling The water cooling system was completed and in operation on 15 October 2014. A big Thanks to everyone who helped João Pedro; Ricardo aka r1sKas from the BenchX website and Luís Alves aka Shuper 'Luu' from Moda'a'foca forum. Here is the first video, moments after filling the loop, you can see the addition of color in the loop (Mayhems Dye Dark Blue), the first drop is always special! However I've done other tweaks and additions since the video: re-adjusted the tube coming out of the GPU to the reservoir and added an awesome LED’s lighting. The Infinity Project is not just the case, it's the whole setup that surrounds it. Keyboard SteelSeries Apex The water cooling ambient | Believe me when i say in person is way better. Future This project not finished, there are still three main thing’s that i have to do. - I want to control the fans 120mm (every 7 of them). - Tempered Glass side window. - Backplate for the graphic card, waiting for resolution and I really need some help overclocking Infinity components to a stable 24/7 OC. Thanks for the opportunity for sharing my Infinity project, i always like to see your feedback ;)
  2. After at least two years of complete silence from my side, it's time to get back into casemodding once again. The case which the mod is going to based on, is Phanteks Enthoo Primo, a one-hell-of-a-beast case, suitable for high performance water cooling. I don't do 3D sketches of how my mod is going to be, as most of you guys are doing. I'm more into doing the whole thing as the project goes, at least that is how i work the best. :) Here is some list of what the overall theme is going to be, and what kind of hardware there is going into it: Color theme: Black, White and Blue Hardware: Motherboard: MSI Z68A-GD80 G3CPU: Intel i5 2500K @ 4.2 - 4.4 GHzMemory: 4 x 4GB @ 1600 MHz (Might be changed)GFX: Gigabyte HD7870 OC (Looking for another one, for a CrossFire setup)OS Disk: 120GB OCZ Vertex 3 MAX IOPS (Either I'm going to buy a 240GB og getting another 120GB, for raid)PSU: 1200W SilverStone Strider Gold EvolutionWell, let's first take a look at the actual case. That's how it looks right from the factory, but lets get started on the modding part. :) I'm really eager to get it going. First off, i removed all the mesh, and there is a lot of that on this case. Sanded it, primed it, and painted it white. Looks quite good, better than i had expected. :) As i don't own any optical drives, I'm going to remove the bottom of the 5.25" cage, to get more room for the upcoming water cooling, and some other stuff. But as Bill told in his video review of the case, the 5.25" cage is attached to the actual case with both screws and rivets, so firstly i removed all the rivets, and drilled the holes a bit larger, and cut a 4mm thread into the holes, so i don't have to rivet it together once again. That's it, for the first update, and thanks for peeking. And also, thanks a lot to my sponsors, for letting me do this, and making it all possible. :)

  4. The Rackmount DJ Project

    Hey there, this is my first post over at the The Mod Zoo so bare with me on this one. ;) This computer is not mine but I have helped on the project and all the photos are taken by me so I am "in charge" of the build log apparently. The Story in Brief: A close friend of mine is a DJ and needed a system to run his software and store his music. Another friend used to work for a coach company and happened to have an old rack cabinet from work that they were throwing away. Long story short, we ended up with a really old crappy cabinet with an old Pentium 4 computer and some really heavy amps and stuff. We decided the whole thing was perfect for his DJ setup and away we went. The cabinet as we received it (minus the PC as we were too eager to take it out and have a look!): And the lovely beast itself: (Ignore the third-party xbox fans in the front, my friend was seeing if they fit.) Now I don't have any images of the hardware that was used in the computer as I wasn't there when it was all pulled out to take photos but I do know it had an Asus P5PE-VM Mobo, Intel Pentium 4 CPU, 20GB HDD and I think about 512MB of RAM. Anyway on with the show - We took all the old stuff out and gave it a little clean over with a sponge. The colour my friend decided on was blue so off we went painting the case and it's naughty bits... While the paint was drying we got to work on the flight case, ripping all the amps and wiring out and cleaning and painting the exposed wood on the inside. We then went a bit crazy with wires and setup a distribution board to power all the amps and the computer, complete with it's own plug socket on the front and custom made speaker wiring throughout to all the amps. The fans you see in the image were already in the case, we reused them and daayumn can those things blow! Anway... paint was dry! I had an old temperature reader I had purchased from eBay many years ago so decided to put it to good use, even though there was already 2 on the front, you can never have enough illuminated numbers! Here's my hand (and disgusting looking thumb) cutting a hole for the display. Now the computer was ready for components! The only images I have of that part (as I wasn't there and they didn't take photos!!) are these 2: Everything is all fine and dandy so far, the motherboard, CPU and RAM have been ordered by my friend and this is what he chose for his DJ rig: Mobo: Gigabyte (I'm unsure which one he has but I know it's blue and comes in a bundle package >.<) CPU: AMD FX6300 RAM: Kingston HyperX 16GB GPU*: Nvidia Geforce GT610 2GB *This is correct at time of this post. Due to the nature of the case it can ONLY have low profile graphics cards but we are thinking of changing it to a low profile version of one of AMD's R9 series cards. Whilst the components were on order we decided to cut a window into the lid of the PC and place in some perspex and UV LEDs around the edge. And last but not least, we placed some LEDs into the case itself and the final product is as follows. I'll let the photos do the talking from now on. If you wish to view the full collection of photos they can be found here: http://imgur.com/a/VOUct#0 (Including a lot more of the flight case build process)

I have also been following MNPCTech on Youtube for quite a while. And what better way to introduce myself than a build log.... :D This is a build I did in spring 2013. Its eventual purpose will be to serve as our HTPC, a file and media server and it will do some computing for BOINC. Until my other build is up and running, it is currently serving as my personal rig though. Some of you may be familiar with it. The basic concept: Replace the back panel of the R4 with a custom one in order to fit a 360 radiator back there (couldn't do it in the front: HDDs). Also, the PSU has been relocated to the front. The End Result I hope this image size works for you guys, otherwise please let me know and I can switch to a different resolution. (click image for full res) The Name Zwieback Exceeding Useful Specifications. Because: Why not? Zwieback is a hilarious word IMO, and in English doubly so (I don't know why I think that, I just do.) I have been naming my rigs after Greek deities ever since I played the original Deus Ex (still love that game). I also might have a slight weakness for Greek mythology in general...
