    Was going to do an update this weekend again but an unexpected package came in.

    Had to unpack that first with my daughter, she loves it! (So do I) :)

    Here some more photos from the unboxing in a higher resolution (2560px), and the products I already had.

    Came in contact with Dremel a few months ago.
    When I told them I didn't use a dremel at all for my previous project they really wanted me to use their products for any future mods.
    Deal! :)

    Do you already have a Dremel rotary tool? It looks they sent you everything but that lol.

    Regardless, Dremel is a great company. I was stupid with my rotary tool and broke it; they replaced it with no questions and sent me a few extra goodies as well :) I'm sure you'll have lots of fun working with yours, they're great for small details.

    Here an explanation why it all takes a little longer then expected :)

    Well some packages took a few months to arrive.
    Also the 2 Matrix cards from Asus will not find it's place in my mod cause of a little mistake :)
    Rogier from Asus Benelux fully compensated this with the best news I could get...
    Instead of 2 Matrix cards..... An Asus Mars II !!!! (And yes I want to watercool it :p)
    Thanks Rogier, you really rock!!!

    Another thing that kept me from going on.. my attic is completely ready to mod there.
    The problem is, my 1 yr old daughter sleeps very bad. (Yes she's like her dad, starts living when it's dark)
    So I moved the pc downstairs again this weekend. Now i can go on modding in the night ;)


    Changed the black and blue Asus GX800 for a black and red Asus GX900

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Also been playing again with the RGB leds, want to place 2 strips on both sides for a nice effect.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Maybe going to use an RF controller, going to test this week if that one has a red-glow-up-and-down function.

    And a picture of how cosy I'm sitting at the kitchen table again. :)

    Hoe would you ever WC that mars 2?
    There is no full cover block and universal blocks sucks also how would you cool the vrm?

    Universal blocks are still always better then aircooling, also the 2 x 140mm fans are blowing directly on the VRM's.
    The only problem I still have is the NF200.

    Some unpacking pictures from the monstrous Asus MARS II.

    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]



    Yes... monstrous!


    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]



    Small compare how high it is.


    [​IMG]



    And how it would look air cooled.


    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]



    Huh... 24pin in a gpu? :p


    [​IMG]



    2 x 24 pins :p


    [​IMG]



    'Few' cm longer then a Gene-Z.


    [​IMG]



    Let's open it up.


    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]



    And clean it.


    [​IMG]



    Hmm...


    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]



    Going to be a 'pita' to watercool it with these blocks.
    One way would be to make new hold-down-plates.


    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]



    While I was posting these pictures on Facebook I already got an offer from Daniel | Mr3D to design an EKWB look-a-like fullcover block!!!
    Right after I posted Daniel wanted to do that, someone else offered to CNC mill it for me... Thanks a very lot both of you!!!
    More news soon :)


    [​IMG]



    Oh it's number 514 out of 999.


    [​IMG]



    Thought it would be funny to re-buy my first used Asus card for this occasion.
    Asus TNT 2 meets MARS 2 :p


    [​IMG]





    I want to thank Rogier and Milan from Asus Benelux and Asus HQ for sponsoring 'L4N' and all the help they offered!!

    The 'always smiling' Mr 3D (design) and Quepee from GoT (CNC milling) both really want to do this!!
    Just because it's a challenge for them too!

    Here's an update already, it's not finished yet but the basis is there :)

    I had to go to work right away
    Photos, measuring, info and more photos.
    So for who wants to know how that goes .. :)


    First a clear picture from the PCB
    (source: techpowerup.com)

    [​IMG]


    After that Daniel needed a lot of sizes.

    He could go on with the first design of the fullcover.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    I made a simple paint picture for all the sizes and heights.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Daniel could go on with that again.

    [​IMG]

    And the first impression.
    Still looks boring but more will come :)

    Maybe till tomorrow!
