at least 3 per day! (feed us one every 8 hours to cure the addiction)
Thanks for the kind words MP...
You are way ahead of where I was at your age, Keep it up and you can surpass me quite easily.
usually when I do a log the comp has been finished and its just a matter of posting picts. This one is quite a bit different in I am building it real time. (as well as all the rest of things going on)
I will focus a bit more on this comp this week so there should be some good bits to post.
and guess what?
welcome back Odin Eidolon, how was the trip?
I missed things like this.
That's a helluva hefty serving of awesome-sauce covered pwn-cakes.
Glad ur back to Silverel
awesome, thanks mate! i missed lots of updates here.. damn Mark you are working fast!
lol, I figured I better actually finish one for a change...Glad you got off the mountain safely
OK on to the updates, here is a shot of the underside of the mobo tray with 2 of the copper rods sticking through
This is just to explain my idea better it is not finished. Notice the rods have grommets insulating them from the mobo tray, they are labeled with the voltages they will supply.
Here is a shot with the 510 PS and showing the small SS Allen set screws
Since the ground also is a ground for 12V, 5V and 3.3V outputs its gonna be a 6ga rod (can handle 70A) where as the others will be either 10Ga (30A) or 8Ga (40A) depending on the requirements of the comp.
here is a shot showing the fans, Im gonna separate the rear PS section from the front section but with no wires notice how much room there now is
Not only does this PS have an extra bit of power and the ability to rais and lower the individual rales but it is also a single rail so wiring will be even simpler. I can get rid of the 12-2 copper rail.
MK... you are an artist my brotha! Beautiful work man... Im getting so excited watching the progress. Have you been able to run any tests so far?
I need to Carbonfiber the tray first (takes a couple days), doing that now so should have it running by this weekend.
You are a genius man, you should start your own modding company or something, your shit is awesome! Can not wait till the weekend to see everything running
Thanks Urbklr and welcome to the thread.
The prob with the company is it would cost way too much to do for others...Thats why I do these threads so you guys will do it on ur own.
(oh yea, its fun as hell too)
Looking good Mark.
I still don't know how you can do such detailed work with those giant bear claws of yours.
Are you going to hit any lans at all soon?
hey Bob glad you stopped by.. Still waiting for you to post a few picts of the ant farm comp.
(no one would believe it)
I have thought about a mod company, but unfortunately there is no market in this small Greek town of mine.... as for your argument, about the cost being too high to do for others... is true, to an extend, however if someone would buy an MK modded PC then he/she would buy something unique in appearance and detail... almost a piece of hi-tec art!
If the market is there, try to think of ways to produce certain mods efficiently and with low cost (sort of... mass customized!) and spend you time and effort on more serious modding. Choosing which mods can be easily repeated and which Not, is yours to work on!
Yea yea I know - I'll get it on here. I was in Phoenix for a while soaking up some sunshine. The rain in Seattle, or should I say snow (Easter), is getting me down!
lol, I got tired of waiting Bob...
Guys go take a look at this mod
Wow Bob.. that's amazing work. Very original.. first ant-farm pc mod I've seen.Very nice
Approximately.. how long did that mod take you?
It took 3 weeks. I was trapped indoors because of snow so I had nothing better to do.
that's so f*cken fantastin ^^
when will it get finished ?
3 more weeks?
I've always wondered if pc components were engineered properly, and not just by a book keeper.
Thx Mark for giving us a peek at what we would have.
Your copper busses are so like what we used for high end hi-fi projects and in the big P.A. amps.
Thanks KW, I will look into them for some tips...
I have been rebuilding the front end on my neighbors new truck the last few days, but should be done this afternoon so I can get back to work. (I miss gaming)
I built this yesterday, its half the mold for the CF mobo tray.
I was gonna laminate the CF on the alum tray but had adhesion probs and it just didnt look cool enough so I decided to make a pure CF Tray assembly.
Sweet mod, I'd love to do something like this for my Design and Technology A-Level but I'd inevitably end up blowing up endless bits of kit. Still an EPIC mod, that ant one is also completely awesome, I'd be a mass murderer if I did that (I tried to have an actual ant farm a few years ago, it didn't end well. Getting a bunch of ants to write TPU in the side of a case though.... Damn you making me want to do this kind of thing!
If I stay at my current school I'll probably be making a post asking for ideas for building a case from scratch, may be asking for your help (my current school lets you choose what to do, the other place I might go makes you do clocks or chairs etc.).
