    New Project

    I setup a folding account on TPU's folding Team for Kreij as TPU_remembers-Kreij (note use of "-" rather than "_" between remembers and Kreij)

    @sneekypeet 's new rig has just started folding under this account. If anyone else is interested in using it to fold for our Team please drop me a PM and I'll send you the passkey* :)
    *passkey's are used to award bonus credits for finishing the work quickly- the faster the gpu the larger the bonus is.

    I have a great amount of respect for @loonym !! He started what I am now tasked to do, albeit, poorly. I have done my homework on this team and he was one of the originators! Thanks to him I lose sleep every night, or almost every night, keeping up his tradition. Of which, I feel Honored to do, even badly. ;)

    I can only wish to garner the respect that he, and Unkle K, and many others, has in my eyes.

    I am just a speck on the TPU little toe's footprint that made this place the best website ever!!

    This place has made me into the fake guru that all the computer illiterate think I am! :laugh:

    :lovetpu: I really do Love this place.

    Greetings fellas, here comes this week update,
    This time I have make the support for the hinges and take a while to calibrate them,
    Also did the front in mesh steel, this front was to my liking, simple and subtle details.
    The following photos:

    I´ve seen this before.
    [​IMG]
    Several details.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Bad detail, once folded, the door was too far from the edge.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    The front in detail.
    After having submitted my conscience about the type of fixing to use, this was by far the best
    choice, with no conflits with the fan screws whatsoever.

    the plate for disks, the space is for: three 2,5" or two 3,5" or one of each.

    The remain work to do is the buttons of power and reset, the front usb 3.0 ( two ports),
    And the acrylic window.
    Then is sanding, painting with mate black and shipping.
    Until then folks.

    Fake guru? I doubt that. Illiterate is relative. The things I don't know, I google. The things I do know are things I've previously googled. I think that's pretty much how computer knowledge goes these days. You have Google, therefor you're always one step away from being an expert.

    Greetings TPU folks,
    This week I did not work that much on case, instead I tried to innovate a bit on my buttons by adding a ring in acrylic mate.
    Also did the enclosure to the two front usb 3.0 ports.

    It was so simple that almost forgot.
    See you later.

    After a bit of fiddling about and swapping a few of the smaller parts that either did not make it in the best shape, or things I just had lying around I thought may improve the build, I now have the donated rig up and running full steam!

    A few pics of the build, nothing special really, just put in some better cooling and gave it a new home for the most part.

    Majority of the cooling...
    [​IMG]

    The block and gear...
    [​IMG]

    I found it is hard to get a clear image of the Aurora coolant (mesmerizing to watch)....
    [​IMG]

    And the whole system without panels on....
    [​IMG]

    May be a little late, but it was well worth it! Thanks to all those who chipped in to put this together, and it will be running forever in a great mans honor! *lifts beer in toast to Kreij*

    I apologize for the long delay between updates... work has been super busy this Summer and I've been trying to keep going with an ailing back for quite a few weeks now :(

    Will be working on getting this thread back up to speed as much as I can this week :oops:

    Greetings fellas,
    It´s time for one update.
    This last two weeks I had a few troubles with the box, more exactly the paint issue. When I was setting up the box I noticed that the ink was leaving as I was tightening the screws. That took me two times for the paint and to dry it. After that went well and today I manage to finish the US Kreij Memorial, for now are the outside pictures.
    Later I´ll mount the hardware and then I´ll show it, after that it´s " fly away to left side of the Atlantic ".

    Thanks @Random Murderer,
    In the mean time yesterday I picked up the parts that Norton send to me and tomorrow I´ll ensemble the case with the hardware from TPU members and, also with my 775 mobo, just to give you an idea.
    About the box itself, the size and shape is a half way between a CM690 and an Elite 130, for ex.
    By the way all items sent to me arrived safe and well packed, thanks for that.
