    Hello Subs!

    Next week I have a week off from work. Then I can finally begin working on this build again! A sick cat has making me work on this build almost impossible. *The things you do for love* The cat is fine now so I can begin working on this project. So be assured.

    Edit:
    For now you must do it with this photo. In the meanwhile I ordered a new HDD. Because the old one had died upon me.

    To bad, not just enough space to put the GPU in. Hmm, better solve that problem in my vacation!

    PS: *And no, there is no LEGO Starwars box on the left, lol*

    It's looking good! You said you don't have enough room for the GPU, do you mean depth-wise (length of the video card)?

    Yup! The length of the videocard is about 5mm to long. So I have to bend the heatpipe upwards. IF it can be done ofcourse.

    So the vacation is over and the time was not on my hand at all. To bad!
    It was wonderfull weather here so I was more busy with my new garden then being inhome for the build.

    But here is another update for you folks!

    Bending the heatpipe.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The first idea was to use this, but when I tried to make it in the radio, it failed bigtime.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    So then I thought up a solution for the problem. Using screws instead.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And added an extension nut for bolting the motherboardtray on it.
    [​IMG]

    Then I checked if it was level.
    [​IMG]

    Tightening the bolts.
    [​IMG]

    The motherboard in place to check if everything fits.
    [​IMG]

    And it does! *Pwewh!

    Till next guys!

    Geez, I'd be sweating bullets bending a heatpipe on any graphics card. So was there a concern that you would cut off the necessary flow within the pipe by bending it?

    Also, glad this build worked out. It's a really fun idea to blend something antique with something modern.

    the concern is not bending it its cracking it
    if you so much as nick the pipe it becomes useless hes got it bent so far it looks like hes gone and stress-cracked it

    I like your homemade standoffs.

    I assume some drives will go down there, or is it just for airflow?

    Thanks OnePostWonder.

    Yeah, I was sweating to. But it did not crack at all. The other end from the heatpipe was already bend/nicked that far. But I can stress test it tho. The card don't give up much heat.


    Hello OneMoar, it's bended not cracked. Had to see it under the loop. I have a spare one (GT430), if it don't work.

    It's for cable management. I made a drivebay on the motherboardtray just for the HDD and SDD. But it's a good option :)

    Update!

    Didn't have much to do anyway so did a little work on the build.
    [​IMG]

    Maybe I will place the tube here.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Did some cutting there
    [​IMG]

    Made it smaller
    [​IMG]

    Sanding it
    [​IMG]

    And placed it back to see the result.
    [​IMG]

    Sanded the wood to make the fan fit tight.
    [​IMG]

    Needed nailpolish for marking the holes for the motherboardtray. *why would I need it anyway :p*
    [​IMG]

    Drilled the holes in it.
    [​IMG]

    Perfect fit. Screwed it tight.
    [​IMG]

    Tadaa (Don't mind the bigger PSU, I wanted to know if it fits also if needed so)
    [​IMG]

    Endresult for today.
    [​IMG]


    Till next folks!

    with all the airflow from that massive fan you could probably just leave the one on the heat-sink unplugged

    Why didn't you just skip the video card and use the IGP? Not much difference between the IGP and a HD6570.

    Yeah it does, does it. But it's pure aesthetic then.

    nice project Cygnitr0n and i can understand u use a dedicated gfx like HD6570 så u can have something decent for decoding and help with playback acceleration ^^

    Wow, this build looks great man!!! Superb job!

    One thing I think is missing is the smell of the old radio. That old dusty, musty electronics smell is so classic I wish Professor Farnsworth would invent his Smell O Scope.

    Oh, and Bite My Shiny Metal ASS!! :roll:

    Here was the closest thing I could find:

    Smell of old book perfume EDIT: Not exactly cheap! $98 @ 50ml, $6 @ .7ml sample.

    Maybe he could slow roast some capacitors inside of it to add that electronic smell. :laugh:

    Intel Sandy and Ivy IGP is awesome at decoding and playback.

    Thanks Puma99DK! Yep, because the IGP from the G1620 don't cover that. It's all been stripped out.

    Whehehe, yeah you are right Mlee49! Wish he was here either. Ah well, there's always hope. A-HAHAHAHAHAAAH!!

    Thanks for the syb ne6togadno!

    Thanks PhaS3 and for the ones and zeroes.. did I just saw 2? :)

    Oh. your. God. You're great. Just made me smile :D

    Oke, learned a new thing :) Then again. It's pure "aesthetic" :cool:

    du u forget his Celly only got a HD2500 not HD4500, like the bigger cpu's? :laugh:

    plus that little will help out nice with DXVA decoding and flashplayer so he don't need 100% cpu usage ^^

    HD2500 has zero problem with decode/playback and CPU usage is low. There is a reason that neither AMD nor Nvidia have introduced low end video cards with their latest lines--they have been supplanted by Intel and AMD IGPs.

    How about instead of continuing this argument and crapping all over Cygnitr0n's thread, you respect his decision to use a discrete GPU and just enjoy the build log?

    Not questioning OP's decision. Questioning Puma's outdated info on IGP's. That's how misinfo gets started.

    Eh, caps don't smell too great when they pop. Tubes in a wooden enclosure, however... Mmmm, now there's a great electronics smell!:toast:
    I'd imagine that that perfume smells pretty good, but not for that price!:eek:
    Fair enough.
