Hello TechpowerUp readers,

Introduction:
My name is Stef and my alias is Cygnitr0n. Cygnitr0n is a combination of Cygnus X, Nitro and Tron. And I'm from Holland. So already I will appologize in front if the Englisch is not correct.




Let me begin:
After a few moments of thoughts and seeing some of the builds here on Bit-Tech.net. I became inspirid and now I'm planning a new project. I don't want a normal case for my PC anymore. And after building the "Obsidian Carnage" , modding my HTPC and modding the Antec Darkfleet, I was getting more experienced with the modding. So, I wanted to leap forward and making myself a real case mod.

Inspiration:
I've been inspired by the old retro look and I want to make the old, new again and bring it back in the future. But afterall in a whole new inside and purpose. It's will be a shame to let this old thing go to waste. Afterall it is a sort of legacy. I was searching for something old, nice, good looking and it must be big enough for a small PC. And I found it, a Philips BX480A.

Because I really like a nostalgic look, I will preserve it in this build. Afterall it's a MOD so I will make a few changes along the way. If it's necessary.

The Project:
It will not be a project that I would build in a short timeframe. Because this build is delicate and needs time. I want it to be perfect and restore it for a whole new purpose.

So I will give you an idea how it looks and what I'm going to Mod. This project is called "1949" and has no real name yet. The "1949" stands for the builddate from this old Radio.

Hardware:
It's gonna be an mITX build with HTPC/Media PC potentials. And I'm going to work with a lot of copper. So that was the story for my idea. Hopefully I will bring this old Radio back to life with his new purpose in the 21st Century.

And here is a picture from the old Philips BX480A.


I have taken the time to make a few nice pictures in his original state. The photo's are shot with a Canon 1000D. check it out.



















Hopefully you think it's nice. It's now 63 Years old!

After a long movement of my house, a little vacation and cleaning the attic, I have found my enthousiasm back to do something about this build.

Totday I have started this build again, first I will disassemble the radio. Ofcourse with pain in my heart, because it's a real old radio. But there was no way to bring it back alive. It's eating dust knowadays.

So let's disassable the radio!

After 64 years a disassambling the radio. First the backpart.


It takes only 4 screws.


After pulling the internal from the case it sees sunlight! And what do we find... yes a dead spider.


What a history is there in this radio. I like the glass tubes!


This is the front of the radio.


It was a real world reciever!


These buttons will come back on the build.


I removed the frontpanel. I don't think I want to clean it. The old look is fine.


The lights for the plexiglass, nowadays we use LEDs.


De front is removed from the internal radio. Everything works with fine wires and little springs.


This was build to last indeed. Nevertheless it ends here.


It's really old and everything works mechanical.


I was shocked because of what I found here. Wires, wires. Nowadays we have a little PCB for it.


OMG I love these Tubes!


Now it's time to disassable the speaker.


I really wanted to see if the speaker is still intact. Indeed it was!


The speaker is gone, now the rest. This is gonna be the blueprint of the new front. So it's an important part.


The fabric is gone. Just a waste.


Here are the important parts for the build. The back, front and plexi.


This I bought six months ago. It's the eyecatcher. It had a steampunk feeling to it.


Here an example how it's gonna look. Great!


And so only the case is left. Cleaned it with water and no chemicals.


Hello Readers!

It is a lovely day here in the Netherlands! So glad that I have some spare time!

Today was the time to change the color of the HD6570 Sapphire. I'll give it a brass colour.

Here are the pictures of today, the HD6570.


This is the brass colour that I want.


I have to pull the coolingblock from the PCB first.


There they are, the cleanupbros.


There isn't better cleanstuff then this.


And I had to tape the parts that shouldn't get paint on them.


Once freshly painted it looks like this. If it feels old, then my work is complete.


After a couple of hours, I began with cleaning the sticker.


And here is the coolblock back on it's PCB.


And I had to show the topside!


Then it was time for the lightbulbs.


Because the colour wasn't any good in my room. I had to take it outside for some good colour photo's


And a close-up. *what a lovely weather*




So this was the part for the graphic card. But there is more. oh? Yes ofcourse! Because in the time I had to wait for the Paint to dry. I had something else to do. Measuring the Philips.

Gladly I have some PC parts, but I couldn't find the right one. So I offered the new Lian-Li benchtable. *With pain in my heart*


And there is is then. I drew the line for my Dremel.


Pada-bing pada-bong! And there's a tiny table left.


It has to fit ofcourse. And It was my lucky day!


For verification I had to check of the powersupply will fit. And yes it does!


So and now with the frontpanel from Philips on. Just to check if it's the correct hight.


Enought cooling? Check! Therefore I have a XSPC mount bracket.


I'm going to replace all the woodwork. And there is going to be new fabric on the woodwork where the speaker normal sits behind. Also I'm gonna cut the plexi (Radio bar) with laser (Not my cup of tea so I let a proffesional do it.)

I'm tryin to make this build as original as possible, with here and there a touch from me. It's obvious that is not a radio anymore when I'm done. But hope the results are good for a 'radio' look.

I love the bulbs like I said before, they are coming back in the build. But I need time to think what I want to do with them. I heared from a friend that I can power the working bulbs. Hope it will work. Otherwise I will light them with Leds.

Also a good Idea has come up in another forum. The Leds that I'm making myself has a new feeling to it, but because it has to be old here is the idea: "Take an acrylic tube, paint the inside brass, put the leds in and burn! It would look like a tube! Hope this works!

First things first! I need to clean and polish the Radio. It's not in a good state know. But is will be in a week or so. When the weather is good enough.

Update!

Before the snowfall here in the Netherlands, I tried to polish the outside of the radio. I wanted to know if I can do it succesfully. Because I don't want to damage the radio,

yet ;)

So I tried at the underside of the radio. With succes, pfff. But I didn't clean the inside yet. This is now on my "todo-list". But when I polished the Radio, I saw that it's

gonna be great, but also I saw that it's gonna be a looooong polish... and polish again and again. This definitely is the same as lapping a CPU. Hours of work!
This was session 1



Stuff that I needed:
Sopje (Water en Soap)
Wasbenzine (Degreaser)
Commandant 4
Copper Polish
Sheepskin polisher
Clean polish fabric
Auto Glym (Car Polish)

The sun came out for a couple of minutes, so I made a picture. Here you see the polishwork I've already done. The reflection is there finally! I didn't clean the bottom, so you can see it as a reference.


[HR][/HR]

In the afternoon I had some spare time. A nice moment to visit the stores. The wood cost me a total of €3,50. Not much at all!

I've chosen for 2 materials. One piece is MDF and the oter is Multiplex (Plywood).The Multiplex(Plywood) is for the front and will be covererd with new radiofabric. The other one, MDF is for the backside.

And I gave the mounting of the mobotray some thoughts. I've chosen for the best sollution. I'm gonna use M4 thread which I'm tapping into the radio. For attaching of the motherboardtray I'm going to use extension bolts. Where the original M4 screws can bolt in easely. Have 8 of them, that should be quite adequate to hold the tray, (to float).



I have not chosen just hardboard. For it is in fact the same color and it is thin. But bends too easily. Eventually my choice was MDF, this is some what harder and easier workable.


I'm gonna replace the old piece by a new piece of plywood, luckily I have the old ones. It is easy to trace. The old wood was also made
of Plywood, so no need to use a different type of wood.


Hopefully I can get some things done this weekend.

I have drawed the backside op the radio on the MDF. It needs to fit excactly.


Here are the parts together. Motherboardtray and the Corsair 200mm FAN.


This is how I think about the frontside of the 1949. I don't have space left in the building to insert/install the Fan. But there is always a way. I think that I can make the fan in the wood. That would solve the spacing problems.


Till next!

Subbed, nice and very unique. Curious what you might do with the Vac tubes, can't wait to see the GPU installed with them.

Wondering if somehow you could incorporate that tangled spaghetti monster underneath... it is a theme build after all. :toast:

Scratching my head about the fan. Cutting the fabric is an option, but may wreck it.

Cool.

@Hokies83
Thanks! Hokies83!

@Sasqui
Thanks for the sub Sasqui! I love the Tubes also! And yes I will cooperate it into the build itself. The fabric is already gone, see my update. But it will be replaced with new fabric.

@stinger608
Thanks stinger608! Hope you enjoy the ride~!

@HammerON
Thanks HammerON for the sub! Can't wait to see more? Me neither.

@ ST.Viper
Thanks ST.Viper! Glad u think it's EPIC all over it! Can't wait to get to the real work. :respect:

[HR]

Update!

Update!

To bad I have to work today, but I did a little bit work. It's not much but it's something.


I drawed the outlines of the original radio. But I had to remove the original fabric. I did it with much pain in the heart! It's

64 years old. Hope I do more good with it then bad! But I have saved a sample of the original fabric.


Afterwards I drawed the outlines from the Corsair 200mm Fan.


It's a close call between the original opening from the speaker and the Fan. But I need to sand it off anyways.


I'm gonna redesign the plexiglass. I will make into a grill.


Till next!

Today I've got some spare time again! Finally weekend. So it's time to do something with project: 1949

The drilling and sawing is the first thing I did. Had no interest in polishing and cleaning the case first. Maybe I'll do it

tommow.


After sawing the hole in the frontplate, the Corsair Fan was next. I enjoy working with my multitool. The best thing I've bought

for years.


The rest of the Plywood needs to be sanded. But the beginning is there.


Ofcource I had to check if it's fits.


It fits! Gladly! Here en there some sanding to do, because the fabric needs to go into the hole to.


So let's turn the plywood around. Oke, I'm going to spray the Fan with brass. Yup. It's a better color then black.


So let's try if it's going along as planned. I've got pictures of it in my head. But is must be the same.


Here a little teaser. But need to think it over what I'm suppose to do with the plexiglass. Need to make a sketch first. Hard

choiche there.. keep it original or..


Tomorrow is another building day. Till Next.

Update!

And here we go! A day off, time for some fun!


First I need to saw the front out of the plywood.


Look how it comes along. Note: The original speakerhole is off by a centimeter. Don't now if this is good or something went wrong in the Philips factory. But I corrected it. Because it will look better .


The frontplate fits exactly with the screws bolted on. Nice!


Here is another picture.


Here you can see the backplate for the case. I'm using a special saw that can make figures, like a Figuresaw (don't now the word :p)


Between the cutting a sprayed the Coirsair 200mm Fan with plastic primer.


De backplate is now finally sawed. But needs some sanding, I think.


De Old backplate en the new.


Here you see the difference between the two backplates.


The indside of the case.


De backplate fits!... almost.


Needs some sanding. (Black line needs to be sanded.)


And I got a package from Cooler Master that I ordered. A FlexPSU.


What a small one! But with great power.


After optimus priming the Corsair 200mm Fan, I've sprayed it in a brass color.


This is the result till now, with a 'brass' fan.


Zo that was the update for today. Here the Endshot from this update.


Now is the wait for, cleaning. And the samples for the fabric is coming these days.

Till next!

I was going to say C(harlie), but I think it's too restrictive, so I'd go with B(eta).

I pick Delta. Looks like it would be good air flow and also has the dark lines that would go with the dark case.

Another extremely interesting and professional build. Attention to detail is appreciated.

Love the idea of using an old radio, but kind of small. Seems you have it figured out pretty good.

Looking forward to more, thanks.

Thanks all for the Sub and compliments along the way.

I think it's gonna be between A and C. Hmm, still got time to think it over.

Hmmm, some hard choices, yes. I think it's gonna be A or C.

Update!

Goodafternoon, i did some work on the motherboardtray and I did get a nice order from Highflow.nl
But building without any tools is very difficult so I dit get some nice ones.

[HR]

Hardware on the Bench:

After sanding and drilling holes into the motherboardtray, I put the whole hardware collection to make a nice little PC. And ofcourse it needed some testing. But again, there was a fault in my calculation. The Videocard is to big, by 7mm again. OMG. It's gonna need some work. I Think I'm going to bend the heatpipe.

OMG Yes! Another update today!

I had some spare time again. So I've been busy with replacing the original fan fromt the Cooler Master Flex PSU. It's kinda loud. That didn't make me happy!

So first we gonna disasamble the PSU.


Here is the diffrence between the original (left) and the new Noiseblocker (right).


After that I cut the wires from the old Fan. I had some spare part left over that I'm going to use. Like this 3Pins male.


Soldering Iron must be hot!


Don't forget the heat shrinks




Heat shrinking them


So, finished!


Testing if it works, yes it does


The old fan is out and the new fan is spinning! Only 9dB!


And ofcourse the cable management.




Aaaaaaaaaaaand it's done!


Till next!
