    Hi all.
    Project named Velociraptor. Small, fast, predatory.

    [​IMG]

    Hardware.
    PowerColor HD7950 PCS, i5-2500k, ECS H67H2-I, 2,5" HDD, mSATA SSD, etc...

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Power consumption and PSU.
    Enermax about similar config (HD7950/i5-2500k/Green HDD/SSD/etc...):

    [​IMG]

    ok, check it (I use a DIY power meter) :

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    so, power consumption :
    idle - 60...65W
    max load (in russian OCCT Perestroika) - 210...220W (baby FSP300-60LD working well, but Chieftec CFT-700-14C not need a big ventilator, enough small 6-cm at 7,5volts).

    But I need more quiet PC and I choosed a "golden" FSP AU-700 - lightweight, powerful and cold. Becouse it works with my config without any active cooling :

    Case
    Material - aluminum. А several variants, I chose the first :

    Ok, let's go

    Thanks, but I'm not plan overclocking the cpu. Because in this case his temp be very high.
    Also, I'm not buy the m/b a specially for this project, she's early was set in my HTPC.

    if u ain't planing on oc that "K" there will go to waste than i would have taken an i7 instead.

    but nice build anyway so hopefully u won't loose much with that flexy riser there.

    Great work on the flexi riser. I have been meaning to do a mod like this for a while, with mobo and gfx card back-to-back, but too many bad experiences I have heard about with those risers. I hope it works out for you!

    This is amazing!
    Some fine work, I'm going to follow this thread some more :)
    Only thing: no WD VelociRaptor? They're technically 2.5" disks!

    Yes, I know about them, but with its own heatsink they will not fit in this case.
    But to install them without a heatsink, I fear...

    ---
    and small software update : added support for different themes on LCD
    not for this project, just a sample

    [​IMG]

    this is the "evolution" of the software in the past 3 days :

    Testing the ventilators of PSU.
    Without 3D-load power supply still is cold, but the minimum rpm of the fans is 1500, less than this value PSU (or m/board) can't set.

    DIY -rheobus.
    Microcontroller, digital thermometer and some small parts...
    Uses PWM for control 4-pin ventilators, all settings are made with the program.
    Connect to PC via serial port (it is present on the board) or via USB/RS232-adapter.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    With this device minimum rpm is 1000 (if PWM=0), and if temp of PSU still less than 30-35 celsius, the ventilators are off.

    You should do a window, then use a rotary tool to etch in a velociraptor into the plexi/acrylic. :)
