  1. Bill asked me to repost this log here. This version cuts about 16 pages of banter on the original Bit-Tech thread. If you want to read the original, just search the tags for "pedobear." :huh: ----------------------------------- It's time for me to get back to my roots.:D There's been a lot of cardboard box mods, but the level of construction has always been too simple for my tastes. Honestly, the material is as cheap as you can get, why not make something really special with it? -Like, special in the head... This mod may take some time. The glue is very slow to set up, and a lot of my building material ran off to the recycle bin. I actually started about 3 weeks ago. So let's build a really kick-butt fire hazard! -Here's my start on a basic frame. I have two of these motherboards. This one is dead, but I think the other one is OK. Mobo risers are the cut offs from the toad re-mod. I tapped the material with a sharpened stick.:D -My tools this time around are quite simple. I shouldn't have to tell anyone how they work. I'm going to use cardboard, some construction paper I found, and flooring glue. I may splurge and use some old rags later too. -No macaroni this time... I think... -Oh, I'm using these high-end clothing clamps during the gluing process. I may also take advantage of anything heavy in my vicinity. (No, not my neighbor...) -More to come later, for now- "eeek! get it off me!" -------------------- Here we are... talking shop on a tech site about cardboard. -I have a set of 60mm deltas lying around. You know I love to make ducts, even if I never get to use them. -CHEEZIT! -ahem... Card stock is ready for the laying of the keel. -Part retaining devices for when the material is too thick for clothespins. Did I say "clothespins"? I meant "wooden clamps." -I made some notches in the frame. -Tab A fits in slot B. The whole rig should disassemble into 3 parts, (if I don't let the glue drip into a critical area.) I started one side of the covers' edge.
  2. Hey everyone, I hope you are having a great day, and thank you for checking out my build log! First off I have to say I'm really excited about being here, having recently found the modzoo hangouts and listened to quite a few of them. I have been working on this project for a while, but progress has been slow until a week or two ago, and I’m stoked to finally be able to post about it! I’ll first lay out everything I’ve done up to this point, and then update this log regularly as I make progress. Without further ado, let’s go! Background: I’m a highschool student in the Bay Area, and really love PC modding. Apart from a relatively simple and small mod, I haven’t done much - most of my interest is perpetuated by reading/watching other people’s excellent build logs. Hopefully this can be my sort of gateway into the realms of PC modding, and be the first of many projects! Goal: I’m a stickler for clean, understated builds. Don’t get me wrong - I love the builds that go all out as well, but something about that slate, flat appearance really appeals to me. In addition, I love SFF stuff - trying to cram all of your components into as small of a footprint of possible is a challenge (plus materials cost less!) With this build, I’m trying to capture the essence of both, creating as small of a PC case as possible given my current hardware, while maintaining a clean and subdued aesthetic - “monolithic” even (which is where the name came from.) As a side note, this build’s name is completely unrelated to MetallicAcid’s Monolith, which I didn’t know of until this build was underway. As of right now, the build measures in at (273.65 x 112.9 x 264.84mm, 8.18L) excluding the feet, and 8.8L with them included. As it stands now, I believe this is on track to be the smallest M-ATX case built that supports Dual-Slot GPUs (255mm Max), and a fully internal PSU (no DC-ATX Converters.) My intentions aren’t to be the first in the world or anything, I just designed the case around hardware I had (either bought used or donated by friends), and it ended up being pretty small. Materials: The case is made out of a combination of ⅛ and ¼ inch P95 matte acrylic sheets from Tap Plastics. This stuff looks absolutely gorgeous, the way the matte side catches and swallows the ambient light is really something unique. As far as fastening the panels together, I am using Parvum Mod Cubes, in conjunction with various lengths of button head M3 screws, which make the case look pretty industrial/clean IMO. I also used M3 standoffs and nuts to secure the motherboard to the case, and am 3d printing several brackets to mount the GPU and SSD. Parts: Like I stated above, most of my parts either were free from friends, or bought used (on hardwareswap). I’ll list everything I have now, and update it as needed. PC Portion CPU: AMD A10-7890K (Have) Motherboard: MSI A88XM Gaming (Have) RAM: 2x4GB DDR3 1600 G.Skill Bare Black PCB RAM (Have) CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-L9A (Have) SSD: Intel 320 120GB SSD (Have) GPU: EVGA GTX 750Ti FTW ACX (Have) PCIe Riser: 3M 500mm PCIe x16 Riser (Have) PSU: Seasonic M1U Flex ATX 300w (Have) SATA Cable: 300mm Silverstone CP11 Low Profile Black (Have) Case Parts Laser Cut Panels: Tap Plastics P95 Matte Black Acrylic 1/4 and 1/8 inch (Have) Window: Tap Plastics Cast Clear Acrylic 1/8 inch (Have) Mod Cubes: 2x Sets Parvum Mod Cubes (Have) Screws: 6/10/16mm Black M3 Button Head Screws (Have) Standoffs: 6+6mm Black Nylon M3 Standoffs (Have) Nuts: M3 Nuts Black (Have) M3 Washers: Black 8mm M3 Washers (Have) PSU: Black ABS parts printed with a Zortrax M200 off of 3d Hubs (Have) The Design: The case has certainly been through several iterations, and I would like to believe that the latest design (the one I am using) has benefitted from things I have learned along the way. My first concept is pretty similar to what I have now, the basic form is still the same, as well as the Parvum Mod Cube fastening method. However, the way the GPU and PSU were mounted at the back was extremely inefficient as well as the weird slotted grill on the right side panel. My second design is pretty much what I have now. I tweaked things and changed the placement of the PSU and GPU to create a much smaller and more space efficient case, and changed the right side panel to have a direct grill over the CPU cooler. This is the 3d printed GPU Bracket, which will help support the GPU. Since the GPU doesn't have any stress relief from the motherboard's PCIe slot, I felt I should provide some relief in the form of a bracket. Here is the 24+8 Pin Cutout for the 24 Pin ATX cable and 8 Pin EPS Cable. I think this style of an integrated cable combs looks very slick, and have been enamoured with it since I first saw p0pe do it in his Hex Gear Builds. This is the way the motherboard standoffs mount in the case. The motherboard tray is made out of layering two sheets of 1/8 inch acrylic together, with the clearance hole for the standoff cut into the panel closer to the motherboard. There is a hexagonal holder for the M3 nuts cut into the rear panel, which the M3 nut slots into, and allows you to mount the M3 standoffs without any heat press inserts, or thread tapping. Here you can see the mounting holes for the 3M PCIe Riser. This is the SSD mount I'm going to 3d print. The final mount will be a little more subdued, but the basic idea still remains! What I’ve done so far: At the moment of starting this build log, I have laser cut most of the case panels, and am waiting for the 3d printed parts (I can cut the window on Friday.) Here are some photos of the case as it stands right now! Roadmap/Updates: This is as much for me as it is for you guys, which will help me stay on track and culminate my ideas. 3D model the case (Completed) Laser cut the case (In Progress) 3D print mounts/brackets (In Progress) Sleeve/Make custom cables (Planned) LED light the case (Planned) Finish/paint the case (Planned) That’s it guys! Hopefully I’ll have some more posts up soon detailing the issues I’ve had so far, as well as explaining more about how everything works. It would mean the world to me if you followed along, and I’d more more than happy to answer any questions!
  3. Hey guys, well I am in the planning phase for a new small form factor build. If you do not remember me, I did the build on a Digital Storm Bolt II case where I redesigned the front assembly so I could integrate a custom loop into the build. Since I am into small form factor challenges, I decided to try this with a Falcon Northwest Tiki case. It is my personal favorite case for a sff but it is lacking the cool touch of a custom loop. XD So time to put the design hat on and see what I can some up with. Got the case so far and now I am motivated to get this build on. Since I am in no rush, I am looking to have this build done within a month or two. Here is the case I just received. Stick around for updates. In the meantime, here is my last Tiki build.
  4. Well, my full tower watercooled build has stalled out a bit. In the mean time I wasn't going to do anything else, but the other day I saw a Lian Li PC-Q07B on newegg as the shell shocker for $30 and figured the family could use a new machine. And a SFF build would be perfect. So I picked up the case. It got here a few days later and let me tell you going from a full tower to an ITX chassis is crazy. the lack of space is quite a challenge, but it's one that I look forward to overcoming. Here are a couple of quick pics of the case. Now, some of you may notice the lack of places to put a fan on the top, side, and front. Thats because this case was really meant for silent or near silent system's with passive cooling. The side panel you see with the holes is actually meant for the intake fan on the PSU. Well I think we need to change that. Because for some reason that I'm not sure about my family needs something a little more powerful than passive cooling can support. So I think I need to add some fans. So the plans call for a 120mm fan on the front, top, and a 120mmx12mm fan on the bottom to cool a GPU. This is where I want to give a quick shout out to MNPCTECH. They have some of the coolest and very high quality modding parts. Most of you have seen a couple of their recent builds on here that are currently ongoing (Rebel Alliance, and FrozenCPU Tech Station) and the quality of the parts is as good as the work they do on their builds. Thanks again Bill for doing what you do, and for the help. Here's the care package that I ordered from them. Got a pair of 120mm Nautilus fan grills for the top and front. A set of micro case feet. A set of the most comfortable safety glasses I've ever worn (safety first when cutting on stuff). And a bag of rotary tool cutting discs. Went ahead and did a quick test fit of the largest PSU that the chassis supports at 140mm long To make sure a 120mm fan would fit. Had to borrow one from my brother since I don't have any laying around. Here's a standard ATX PSU installed in the chassis. And a quick test fit to verify the fan will clear. Went ahead and taped the front, top and bottom of the case of so that in the next couple days I can get the holes marked and cut/drilled. Top: Front: Also removed the bottom hard drive brackets to fit the 120mm x 12mm fan in the bottom: Didn't have time to do mark or cut things last night. Hoping to get to them by the end of the weekend and atleast be able to power up the fans and see how things work. Front and top fans by the way are Prolimatech 120mm red LED fans. Here's a couple pic's outside of the case. And with a grill installed: Also got the main piece of hardware for this build yesterday. Got a quick teaser. Ok I'm no good at keeping secrets. Hoping to make progress soon. Thanks for looking.
  5. So i've been doing some design work on a personal project and had afew ideas for custom reservoirs that will fit well inside USSF and SSF cases. or anywhere that space is at a premium (or regular sized cases for that matter) problem is i DONT own a CnC or a Laser to fabricate these designs. Nor am i an experienced reservoir designer. just had some ideas that I thought would be both useful, aesthetically pleasing and marketable. i'm looking for help and advice. here is the general idea. 27mm thick, 120x120mm reservoir that mounts to any standard 120mm fan mounting pattern. (also a 240mm version) 115mm ID reservoir with multiport options. very flexible. mounting options would include both vertical and horizontal. good idea? bad idea? worst idea? if anyone has the ability to make these a reality let me know lets talk numbers! (unless its a feces idea) thanks in advance!
  6. Continuing with their line of aluminum Legacy cases, Rosewill is coming out with its W1 mITX case soon. The case looks pretty decent with a 140mm fan in the front and rear and up to a 280 combo in the ceiling. Provided it's aluminum, this might be a fun case to cut into. Rumors are a review is imminent B) Link to Rosewill's page about the W1: http://www.rosewill.com/landingpage/legacy_w1/
  7. After my Mini's big bro took a dump, I needed to put my modding skills towards something. As that build was my primary gaming rig, something had to take it's place momentarily. Little did I know how much I could actually get out of this little guy. My GT500 workstation is where I get all of my work done here in the lab. I was hesitant to tear into it as the little FT03 can be a bear to work with. Brilliant cooling design yes, roomy, not at all. Before I started, this rig held an Intel 4770k on an ASRock Z87E itx board powered by the Silverstone Gold 450w PSU. Standard Corsair 1600mhz LP Vengence and several Samsung 840Pro SSDs. Solid building blocks for a workstation, but could this setup handle heavy OCing on both the cpu and gpu? I have seen other builders use 780s, tis and Titans, but I had not seen many in the wild. Could this end with the fastest FT03 Mini on the planet? Maybe? With two hurdles to deal with, being only a 780gtx SC instead of the higher end TI and a motherboard that isn't known for big clocks... First off, I removed the drivers and the EVGA 750ti SC (great card by the way). Putting a 780 GTX in this case requires some cutting. The card is around a 1/2" too long to fit in this case. Both the case and the plate that holds the feet needed trimming. I have seen some ugly cuts out on the net and the right way to do it is with a cutting wheel and dremel. Measure twice, cut once, file last. Make sure that you plan out reassembly carefully. One missed step will require a tear down in which you will need to start all over. Sata, I/0, power connections etc. all need to be made first. Then the gpu and lastly the plate for drives (which I modify for the GT500 to hold SSDs). The large stock fan no longer fits. That's okay as I wanted Scythe Silent Typhoon 14s in push/pull. I still need to clean up the cut, but I am thinking this whole case is going to be painted, so that will come later. Testing on the bench went great as I stopped at 4.8ghz with a 1200mhz clock on the gpu. Great temps there but now it's time to bench inside the case. I will be back with more pics, temps, and benches shortly. No comes the fun part, game testing! Anyone up for some Titan Fall or BF4? Look us up on Origin,"jallen labs." -maestro0428
  8. I was pressured to post this quick little build, even though I don't have any hardware and it will likely go straight to storage. I had some time to kill, and some scrap materials to get rid of, so I thought I'd build ol' crusty. A while back, I tried to get rid of some cast aluminum outdoor speakers at the local Goodwill. Apparently they have a policy against taking anything slightly rusty, so they stayed around as garage clutter. On a whim, I checked to see if I could fit an ITX motherboard inside. It turned out the fit was perfect, and I tore into the speakers so violently I have no pictures of the start of the project. -Here's the inside of one of the speaker back panels. I have already sawed the mounting pegs and stuff off the inside here. The plan was to take the two speakers and attach them back-to-back, then use the backplates to make faceplates. -I had to sand the faceplates down a bit to fit them in the raised border on the speaker fronts. I pried the metal mesh of the fronts and tossed it immediately. That's some of that stuff there's no pictures of, bear with my rambling for a bit... -A back becomes a front, and a back becomes a back again. -what? I added an 1/8" bit of plexi scrap to get these flush with the lip. I have some nice metal from a control panel for an old X-ray machine here... No, I don't have the X-ray part. :( I had to remove some spot welded reinforcements off the back. These bits are to splice the two speaker bodies together. -I drilled the body holes first, then traced the hole pattern onto the splice. -Here's a good size reference shot. I countersunk the holes so the expanded bit of the rivets would sit inside the splices. Grandpa's safety goggles served me well for this project. The sander throws filings straight up and forward, so even sitting off to one side you end up looking like Ziggy Stardust. -I clamped the halves together while adding the rivets. -There used to be grit on this poor sanding drum. I used it to remove some of the rear speaker face. (the whole back-front thing is giving me hell.:lol:) -I got this far with the sander and a jig saw. The aluminum is close to 1/4" near the edges. -I filed on the edges for a long time. I filed the rivets down even with the splices too. The extra room will be needed. -I have the fan already fitted in this pic. The speaker mount was almost a perfect match for a 92mm fan, and I have this insano-thick 92mm fan I want to use. I'm fitting a box for the power, LED, and USB. This was originally an order-clearing button box from a certain local fast-food establishment... Are you keeping track of the sources yet, 'cause it gets better. -Some work on the switchbox. I've blasted the entire setup with oven cleaner at this point to get the "crusty" effect. The switch was originally shiny nickel and stood out way too much. I tortured it until it matched the rig a little better. -I added this spacer to make the switchbox and the fan level with each other. -What is that? It kinda looks like a tiny engine head... -Yup. It was once a weed-eater engine. Here I'm chopping the top off of the itty-bitty piston head. The plans I have for that will have to wait for the next update.:D
  9. Some of you may have seen my work on the FT03 on various web spots before (including this site). I build a ton of PCs every year and try to make a few for myself each year also. I haven't gotten to the point when I am just too picky and my expectations have grown out of control. So I am going to make the best FT03 possible (to hopefully get over those previous behaviors). I want to address every detail of the case itself and how to configure the hardware in it. I do have quite a few tools at my disposal, but will farm out what I can't do in house the right way. Hardware is hardware and it will have decent components (and they are likely to change often anyway). I have narrowed down all of the parts that are going to work for the next couple of months and I have most of them anyway. My budget is $2000 US (for the tower only). This adventure started in June of 2012 and must be complete and operational January 1st 2013. Off we go.... Components list: Silverstone FT-03 in Silver/White rev. 1 (this does matter as issues I will address have been updated in newer revs) Intel 3770K (has run at 4.5ghz for over a year and will most likely stay that way) ASRock Extreme 4M Z77 Corsair Dominator 1600mhz CL10 8GB x4 ASUS r280x DCII Top rev. 1 (the new one comes out this week) ASUS Xonar DX 7.1 Samsung 840 Pro 256GB SSD Samsung 840 Pro 128GB SSD x2 Western Digital Black 250GB HD x2 Seagate Cuda 3TB HD Seasonic 620w M12II Modular Power Supply Various bits that I used or modded along the way. Cooling bits list: Zalman LC 320Q AIO H2O (yes custom h2O would be tasty and it could happen...) Scythe Gentile Typhoon 120mm 1850rpm fan x2 Sharkoon Silent Eagle 1000rpm 120mm fan Gelid Solutions 1600rpm 80mm fan x2 Gelid Solutions Silent 4200rpm 40mm fan x2 Various other bits I will show along the way. Link to manufacturer: http://www.silverstonetek.com/product.php?pid=291&area=en ^these are the best stock photos I have seen. -Still going through photos. I am so unorganized. Here is a link to video of the initial assembly. It is low def, poor lighting, etc. It's only 2:30 though, so its not so bad. I am not trying to advertise with this, so if the intro/logos are no go, feel free to remove it as that is not my intention. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ORuBPOUML8 Components in that first assembly included: Bone stock FT03 Xeon 1245v2 ASRock Extreme 4M Z77 Corsair Dominator 1600mhz CL10 8GB x2 Nvidia Quadro 4000 HighPoint 2720SGL Rocket RAID/SAS to 4 sata cable Samsung 840 Pro 128GB SSD Western Digital Black 750GB HD x4 Seagate Cuda 3TB HD Seasonic 520w M12II Modular Power Supply LG Slot loading DVD burner Stock Silverstone 120mm fans x3 Xigmatek S1283 heatsink
  10. MSI announced their Nightblade mITX bare-bones system, the Nightblade. Included will be the mITX case, motherboard and 600W PSU with optional features such as CPU cooler, slim ODD, and more fans. Looks to come with a rear 92mm fan and optional 120 on the side. Can't help but compare this to EVGA's Hadron. Pricing around $600 for the case bundle with a SteelSeries headset. Rumors on availability in a week or two. Link: http://www.msi.com/product/desktop/Nightblade.html#overview
  11. The Coolermaster Elite 110 is tiny. If you're looking for an option to take up the least amount of space it may be worth your time to check it out. Dimensions on the little guy are 280 x 208 x 260 mm and support for up to 180mm PSU--though it will literally be sticking out the back--as well as a max length of 210mm for a GPU. Going to $40. Link: http://www.cmstore-usa.com/elite-110-mini-itx-chassis/
  12. Kind of surprised not to see anything up yet, but Corsair has been teasing photos of their 250D. Looks similar to the Node in size. An imporant thing that was pointed out by the Prodigy is that mITX doesn't need to be small to sell. Anyone like the looks of this thing?
  13. Hey folks! Time for another mod from me. This came about from a decision where SFFreview.com would sponsor a minecraft tournament at a LAN local to me - Aucklan.com I decided to take the opportunity to introduce local LANners to two things - SFF and mods! I bought two of these cases, one for the prize mod and one for my own mod, and both will be shown in this thread as we go along. 47 days to go to get both done! Right,. lets do this! First of all, I've started with the Aywun A1-1001 chassis. It features a 250w SFX PSU, an external 5.25" bay and an internal 3.5" bay. It's pretty small too - coming in at around 11.5L external volume, under HALF the size of the Bitfenix Prodigy and just over half the size of the Coolermaster Elite 120. I will cover upgrades as we go through. I apologise for the quality of the pictures - my camera has packed a sad so I'm relying on my 3MP smartphone camera! First up - better cooling. The stock case comes with a 80mm front intake spot - and we all know 80mm fans aren't that great for moving air quietly. I've cut a larger fan position here - to fit a 120mm fan! This area will fit a regular 120mm fan if I decide to go with a custom HDD rack, or a Scythe Slim 120 if I keep the standard drive mount. Also done: The addition of a custom power switch and 16x2 line LCD unit. The LCD can be used to scroll messages, RSS feeds and pretty much anything else you can think of (except temps thanks to the plugin being abandoned :( ) Thats all for now - in the next few weeks I will be replacing the window with something nicer, sleeving the PSU, painting the case and adding some special touches :D
  14. Hey folks, I'm modding up a SFF chassis as a LAN tournament prize and need some advice on painting it. I'm going for a urban digital camo style look similar to: The case is currently black powdercoat. I was wondering if the following would work: Mask off black areas I wish to keep on stock panels Spray etch primer and leave to dry Spray light grey and leave to dry mask off light grey I wish to keep spray dark grey and leave to dry Pull off masking to reveal the light grey and black Spray matte clear coat Would this work? Or would I be left with a very uneven surface due to the depth of the primer and 2 colours vs the stock black powdercoat?
  15. The beginning: AMD released their DTX and M-DTX form factors in 2004, to answer a need for a standardised form factor like Shuttle's dual slot SFF systems. Unfortunately, like Intel's BTX, the form factor never really took hold outside of OEMs. I've been a fan of the form factor since launch, admiring it's almost M-ITX size with the ability to have 2 expansion slots. When the opportunity came up to grab one of Elitegroup Computer System's new H61H2-MV boards, I jumped at the chance. DeToX - the name derived from DTX, and the organic, natural feel of the wood as a medium for chassis work - is designed to look like an older appliance, found in someone's attic and dusted off - maybe something from the late 40's/50's. I chose the flawed sides of the wood to accentuate this, bringing out the 'used and abused' aspect of the design. The cutouts are also designed to accentuate this, not quite perfect, as if it has taken damage over the years. I will be staining the pine a darker, cedar-like tone to help with the effect. The board features Intel Socket 1155, H61 chipset, and a couple of nifty features: Great socket placement compared to most M-ITX boards: And two expansion slots! The design work started by mocking up the proposed hardware in Sketchup and in reality: (missing is the cooler, drives and power supply :P/> ) And then I began cutting the parts. The wood here is 4 and 7mm thick, 3 ply, Pinus Radiata, grown in the largest planted forest in the Southern Hemisphere (Kaingaroa Forest, just a stone's throw from where I grew up) And now for some real work. Mocking up here: I attached the side panels with 'panel pins', little 15mm long nails well suited for working with such materials. The fan here has had 5mm shaved off the frame to enable the blades to sit within the hole provided for it Where I am at now: most of the cutting is done. Need to do some tidying up, then work on the aluminium struts for the corners. All in all, I've spent 6 hours on this so far! And off I go to complete more work. The system specifications: ECS H61H2-MV board Pentium G645/Core i3 (still to decide/purchase) 2x4GB RAM eBay special gigabit card HD4550 (upgrading to the low profile Sapphire HD7750 when budget allows) Flex-ATX PSU (to be purchased) Deepcool Gamma Blade cooler SSD and HDD TBD
  16. Sooo, my entry for the LOSIAS.net $30 challenge.. Started with a large 1st aid kit, industrial grade? :P/> Some drill and dremel action later, I have an epic LAN case Consists of: ASRock N68-S2 FX motherboard Athlon 240 Dual 2.8GHz 2x DDR3 2gb DIMMs 300w SFX PSU XFX HD4550 60gb 2.5" HDD Bitfenix 140mm fan Took me 6 hours to complete this.. got a few things to tidy up though
